Peripheral nervous system damage from hematologic malignancies is related to neoplastic cells infiltration of peripheral nerves or to monoclonal antibody production cross-reacting with peripheral nerves' antigens. Neurolymphomatosis (NL), a rare manifestation of hematologic malignancies, occurs when malignant cells invade the peripheral nerves leading to various manifestations. Here, we report a case of NL with 2 hematologic malignancies in a 79-year-old woman presenting with lower extremity pain/weakness. Investigation revealed anemia, IgM kappa monoclonal gammopathy, and elevated anti-MAG titer. Electrodiagnostic studies...

Follow me on Twitter @RobShmerling Ever wonder what other people are wondering about? I know I do. So, here are the top 10 health searches in Google for 2017. 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.

AbstractFibromyalgia is a chronic musculoskeletal condition characterized by widespread pain in the body and is associated with tender points at the shoulder, back and hip regions. A wide variety of pharmacologic drugs and dietary supplements have been used with limited success in treating the musculoskeletal pain. Early clinical studies with low level laser therapy (LLLT) alone or in combination with drugs commonly used to treat fibromyalgia suggested that LLLT may be effective in reducing musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, as well as the number of tender locations. However, a sham-controlled study reported that LLLT was...

Sieberg, Igor Elman By unconscious or covert processing of pain we refer to nascent interactions that affect the eventual deliverance of pain awareness. Thus, internal processes (viz., repeated nociceptive events, inflammatory kindling, reorganization of brain networks, genetic) or external processes (viz., environment, socioeconomic levels, modulation of epigenetic status) contribute to enhancing or inhibiting the presentation of pain awareness.

There is growing interest and investment in precision medicine as a means to provide the best possible health care. A treatment regime formalizes precision medicine as a sequence of decision rules, one per clinical intervention period, that specify if, when and how current treatment should be adjusted in response to a patient's evolving health status. It is standard to define a regime as optimal if, when applied to a population of interest, it maximizes the mean of some desirable clinical outcome, such as efficacy. However, in many clinical settings, a high‐quality treatment regime must balance multiple competing outcome...

Chronic geriatric pain is a complex condition to assess and treat. Older age is associated with several highly prevalent comorbid pain conditions including both musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions.1 The impact of pain in older persons goes far beyond physiologic risks to include impaired cognitive function, depression, sleep disturbance, diminished socialization, increased healthcare use and costs, and impaired functional abilities.2 Despite the prevalence and potential impact, stoic attitudes of older adults in pain, myths about pain being a natural element of aging, and fears about potential addiction, can lead to ...

The choice of analgesic agents for the horse is limited and many have side effects that can restrict their use for chronic and prolonged pain. Little information has been published on Tramadol and Acetaminophen in the horse. The study evaluated the analgesic effects of co-administration of tramadol and acetaminophen compared to each drug individually in a crossover study. The study was performed in 6 healthy horses each infused the following over one hour: Control (normal saline), Tramadol, Acetaminophen, or Both (acetaminophen and tramadol infused together).
