Circadian Variation of Migraine Attack Onset: A Review of Clinical Studies.

Circadian Variation of Migraine Attack Onset: A Review of Clinical Studies. Biomed Res Int. 2019;2019:4616417 Authors: Baksa D, Gecse K, Kumar S, Toth Z, Gal Z, Gonda X, Juhasz G Abstract Several studies suggested that migraine attack onset shows a circadian variation; however, there has not been an overview and synthesis of these findings. A PubMed search with keywords "migraine" AND "circadian" resulted in ten studies directly investigating this topic. Results of these studies mostly show that migraine attacks follow a monophasic 24-hour cyclic pattern with an early morning or late night peak while other studies reported an afternoon peak and also a biphasic 24-hour cycle of attacks. The identified studies showed methodological variation including sample size, inclusion of medication use, comorbidities, and night or shift workers which could have contributed to the contradictory results. Several theories emerged explaining the diurnal distribution of migraine attacks suggesting roles for different phenomena including a morning rise in cortisol levels, a possible hypothalamic dysfunction, a circadian variation of migraine triggers, sleep stages, and a potentially different setting of the circadian pacemaker among migraineurs. At the moment, most studies show an early morning or late night peak of migraine attack onset, but a significant amount of studies reveals contradictory results. Further studies should investigate the arising hy...

AbstractOSA is a disease of modernisation. Though many modalities are available for its treatment from invasive to non-invasive; the role of lifestyle modification can never be underrated. Lifestyle modification normally includes walk; diet with less fat; abstinence from alcohol and smoking along with regularising of sleep schedule. However the role of calorie deficit diet along with strength training in OSA has not been extensively researched till date. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of the calorie deficit diet and strength training in patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It is a prospec...

During medical school, a neurologist taught me that the number one cause of headaches in the US was coffee. That was news to me! But it made more sense when he clarified that he meant lack of coffee. His point was that for people who regularly drink coffee, missing an early morning cup, or even just having your first cup later than usual, can trigger a caffeine withdrawal headache. And considering how many daily coffee drinkers there are (an estimated 158 million in the US alone), it’s likely that coffee withdrawal is among the most common causes of headaches. Later in my neurology rotation, I learned that caffeine i...

If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. We all have heard the phrase, Mind, Body, and Soul, but very few people understand how they all work together. Most people believe the phrase "I can achieve anything I put my mind to". In some cases this is true, however, when it comes to physical well-being and posture, the body plays a huge role in how we feel. The body sends messages known as "somatic markers" through neurotra...

Authors: Haviv Y, Zini A, Keshet N, Almoznino G, Benoliel R, Sharav Y Abstract AIMS: To test and re-examine the diagnostic criteria for neurovascular orofacial pain (NVOP) compared to posttraumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PTTN). METHODS: Pain and patient characteristics were compared in patients with NVOP, PTTN, and NVOP initiated by trauma (PT-NVOP). NVOP criteria were based on prior studies, and PTTN was defined according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders, version 3 beta. RESULTS: Of the 170 patients in the cohort, 90 had PTTN, 51 had NVOP, and 29 had PT-NVOP. None of the tested par...

Discussion Benign fasciculations are very common and occur in up to 70% of the general population. They occur at different points in people’s lives. They can be brought out by stress, poor sleep hygiene and caffeine. Caffeine has numerous uses especially for regulating sleep and attention. However too much can cause restlessness, jitteriness and sleep deprivation too. The recommended amount of caffeine for a teenager is
