ConclusionsInsomnia symptoms, which were commonly seen after the earthquake, could longitudinally predict the development of PTSD and various somatic symptoms, and PTSD and headache could longitudinally predict the developments of insomnia symptoms among children and adolescent earthquake survivors. These findings highlight the importance of assessing and addressing insomnia symptoms in children and adolescents following a traumatic event.

An 11-year-old male presented with 2 months of intermittent headache, left eye pain, and diplopia following a high-speed motor-vehicle collision (MVC) 2 months prior. During his initial evaluation for his MVC, no orbital or ocular trauma had been noted. He had been evaluated previously by his pediatrician, who was concerned for reti nal detachment and recommended ophthalmology follow-up. He came to the emergency department due to continued and worsening symptoms. Physical examination showed mild proptosis, ptosis, as well as dilated and tortuous episcleral veins most prominent laterally (Figure 1).
Abstract Dental pain is the most common acute pain presenting in the orofacial region; however, chronic pain conditions are also frequent and include; temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs), primary headaches (neurovascular pain), painful post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PPTTN) and less commonly referred pain and idiopathic or centralized pain conditions. All of these conditions can mimic toothache and vice versa. Many of these conditions are comorbid with high levels of tension headache and migraine reported in patients with TMD; however, dentists remain unfamiliar with headaches and medics unfamiliar with...
As a pediatrician and a parent, I often think about what I’d do to keep my children safe if we were hit by a storm like Hurricane Dorian, which reduced whole towns in the Bahamas to rubble. Or by a wildfire, like the Camp Fire that burned the town of Paradise, California to the ground. Or how we’d deal with this year’s record-breaking rains that flooded scores of towns throughout the Mississippi River Basin. Disasters like these — which may be getting more dangerous with climate change — can directly harm a child’s body. But what’s less well appreciated is how they can harm our chi...
ConclusionWe found that there is a lack of high-quality evidence-based studies on the pharmacological treatment of PTH. Future studies are highly needed and must emphasize open-label studies with rigorous methodology or RCTs with a placebo-controlled design.

Post-traumatic headache is common after pediatric traumatic brain injury and affects thousands of children every year, but little is known about how headache affects recovery after traumatic brain injury in other symptom domains. We aimed to determine the ...
To investigate a relationship between resilience as a personality trait and as an outcome trajectory for post-traumatic headache after a mild traumatic brain injury.
