Pain, unhealthy days and poor perceived health among Japanese workers.

Pain, unhealthy days and poor perceived health among Japanese workers. J Occup Health. 2019 Oct 18;: Authors: Chimed-Ochir O, Mine Y, Fujino Y Abstract OBJECTIVES: The current research aimed to study the relationship between health-related quality of life (poor perceived health/unhealthy days) and workers' pain. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 1360 Japanese workers of a Japanese company in Kyushu. Health-related quality of life was measured by HRQOL-4 tool developed by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the USA. Pain was assessed by numeric rating scale with 0-10 points. Regression analysis was conducted to identify the relationship between health-related quality of life and pain. RESULTS: Participants who reported pain had significantly greater odds of having poor health compared to those with no pain (AOR = 3.99, 95% CI = 3.82-4.18, P

Conclusions: Spinal anesthesia with a median or paramedian approach at cesarean section has no effect on the incidence of PDPH, but we believe that there has been a need for further studies with larger or different patient populations.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMany studies have demonstrated that discogenic low back pain is the most common type of chronic low back pain (CLBP), one of the major causes of disability, and has a major socioeconomic impact. Our aim is to review present therapeutic interventions for discogenic low back pain.Recent FindingsThere are a multitude of treatments used in clinical practice to treat CLBP, but there is continued debate and lack of consensus among clinicians and the policy makers as to which modality is the best approach. Based on controlled evaluations, lumbar intervertebral discs have been shown to be the source of chr...

Use of cannabis to treat headache dates back hundreds to thousands of years,15,23 and is currently widespread among medical cannabis users.2,26 Nearly 36% of medical cannabis users reported using cannabis to treat headache/migraine; moreover, they retrospectively reported an average 3.6-point decrease (on a 10-point scale) in headache severity after cannabis use.26 Similarly, 40% of patients for whom medical cannabis was recommended for migraine reported a positive effect, with a decrease in migraine frequency from 10.4 to 4.6 migraines/month.

Rebound headaches, also known as medication overuse headaches, are caused by the frequent or excessive use of pain-relieving and/or antimigraine drugs to treat headache attacks that are already in progress. (Note that these are not the same as oral prophylactic or preventive medicines, which should be taken daily.) In other words, the same medications that initially relieve headache pain can themselves trigger subsequent headaches if they are used too often. Medication overuse headaches can be disabling, forcing people with this condition to take sick leave and to be less productive at work and home. To be diagnosed with m...

We report a case where the LP shunt migrated upward to the cerebellomedullary cisterns.Case DescrıptıonA 37-year-old female patient underwent lumboperitonel shunt surgery for pseudotumor cerebri. After the LP shunt surgery, the patient's complaints of headache and blurred vision disappeared. The patient admitted to polycyclic at the postoperative first month with neck pain and neck sucking sensation. Cerebellomedullar cysterna shunt tip was seen in brain CT. The patient was operated again and the proximal end of the shunt was lowered to Lumbar 1 level under C-Arm Scope device control. Then, we fixed the subcutaneous tiss...

ConclusionsConsidering our results, the described withdrawal method seems to be a simple and safe method to achieve pain reduction while simultaneously preventing organ damage. Despite the preliminary character of our results, our hypothesis might stimulate a new understanding of CLBP ’s pathophysiology.

This study provides the first direct evidence that oxytocin, probably by OTR activation at TCC level inhibited dural nociceptive-evoked action potential in this complex. Thus, targeting OTR at TCC could represent a new avenue to treat migraine. PMID: 31678349 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
