And just so you don’t have to look each one up, I’ve provided a brief answer. You’re welcome. 1.  What causes hiccups? I was surprised this one made it to the top 10 list of health searches. Maybe this search is common because hiccups are as mysterious as they are universal. I’ve written about hiccups before, but let’s just say the cause in any individual person is rarely known or knowable. Then again, the reason hiccups stop is als...

As we age we are inevitably bereaved more often, and it is at a time of our life when we are more vulnerable. Research shows that the generation that are in their 60’s and older are the least likely to access or receive appropriate support when someone dies, and this is particularly true of men. Through my work as a bereavement psychotherapist for the last 25 years, I have learned from my clients what can help them at such a difficult time, and I have developed the concept of “pillars of strength” — these are active things we can do to help us manage the pain of loss, and build an internal structure...

CONCLUSIONS: This Scoping Review shows that functional capacity, sleep, personal development, peer support and family functioning are interesting lines in published works. However, gaps in knowledge are detected in areas such as risk behaviours, the consequences that pain can cause in adulthood and gender inequalities. PMID: 29452750 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

When a doctor in your hospital system kills himself, the entire medical staff receives a mass email informing everyone of “Dr. So-and-So’s sudden unexpected death”. Thoughts and prayers for his family and loved ones. Perhaps a link to your Employee Assistance Program is provided, for those who may need counseling or grief assistance.  This is followed later that day with another email detailing the schedule for the final arrangements. Calling hours. Funeral. Directions to the church.Not everyone will have known the physician. So most scan the email and then go about thei...

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition that affects 2 –4% of the population and is characterized by anatomically widespread pain symptoms accompanied by fatigue, disturbed sleep and mood. In patients with fibromyalgia (FM), catastrophizing is related to greater pain severity, amplified pain sensitivity as well as higher anxiety that can disturb sleep . Understanding catastrophizing's mechanisms of action, therefore, would potentially provide valuable scientific information as well as pragmatic, treatment-related benefits in relation to sleep.

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition that affects 2 –4% of the, is characterized by anatomically widespread pain symptoms, and accompanied by fatigue, sleep and negative cognition. In patients with fibromyalgia (FM), catastrophizing is related to greater pain severity, amplified pain sensitivity, and higher anxiety. In the present study we explored the impact of yoga-based exercise over time on pain, fatigue, catastrophizing in patients with fibromyalgia. Participants rated FM symptoms including pain, as well as underwent psychosocial and psychophysical testing at baseline and then attended a...

Chronic neuropathic pain is difficult to treat and is associated with comorbidities, such as reduced sleep quality, depressed mood and anxiety that negatively affect patient outcome. Patients suffering from chronic pain conditions have a heightened stress response and elevated plasma cortisol levels. However, it remains unknown how pain-related stress fundamentally changes neural circuitry and whether this contributes to the vast array of comorbid disorders associated with chronic pain states. In order to determine the neural changes that occur in the brain following peripheral nerve injury, we assessed changes in glucocor...

Using self-report questionnaires of key fibromyalgia symptoms domains (fatigue, sleep disturbance, pain, function, stiffness, dyscognition, depression, and anxiety) we previously identified four unique symptom clusters. The purpose of this study was to examine the stability of fibromyalgia symptom clusters between baseline and two years follow-up. Female patients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia completed a baseline Brief Pain Inventory, the 30-item Profile of Mood States, the Medical Outcomes Sleep Scale, the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory, the Multiple Ability Self-Report Questionnaire, the Fibromyalgia Impact Questi...

Conclusion: Evidence is insufficient that CES has clinically important effects on fibromyalgia, headache, neuromusculoskeletal pain, degenerative joint pain, depression, or insomnia; low-strength evidence suggests modest benefit in patients with anxiety and depression.
