Authors: Kolbe L, Eberhardt T, Leinberger B, Hinterberger T Abstract BACKGROUND: Biofeedback-treatment for primary headache is highly recommended. Its expenses are mostly not or not completely covered by health funds, hindering the implementation in the care system. This randomized controlled study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of a biofeedback-treatment for primary headache in the outpatient care system all over Germany. METHODS: The participants were divided into a direct treatment-group (n=41) and a waiting control-group (n=29). The treatment was carried out for 8-11 sessions with vasoconstriction-/vasodi...

CONCLUSIONS: While headache is the most common symptom following mTBI, current evidence does not support a specific treatment. No differences were noted in headache frequency compared to our prior study. However, the current sample had significantly lower headache severity (15% vs 36% with pain rating of 6 or above, P = .015) compared to our prior study. Our current study was not able to determine whether there is any benefit for the use of amitriptyline as a headache preventive because of difficulty with study recruitment and compliance. The challenges with recruitment and retention in the mTBI population were i...

This study aimed to establish whether there is a relationship between the Monocyte to High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio (MHR) white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and whether it can be used as a new marker for predicting disability and severity of attack.Materials and methods: This case-control study included 201 migraine patients (114 without WMHs and 87 with WMHs) and 150 healthy control subjects. Intensity of pain was determined by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and disability rates were determined by Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS). Blood samples were take...

nė K Abstract Transcranial magnetic stimulation is used to explore visual cortex hyperexcitability in migraine. We hypothesized that the phosphene threshold in subjects suffering from migraines with and without aura would be lower than in controls, and this phenomenon could be linked to higher pain and disability levels. We also implied that subjects with lower phosphene threshold could see more phosphenes of different colors and shapes. Our primary objective was to compare the phosphene threshold between migraine without aura, migraine with aura, and control groups and investigate which factors contribute to dif...

We present the design for and discuss the feasibility of a pragmatic, randomized controlled trial on the effectiveness of a multimodal manual therapy (MT) treatment compared to usual care by the general practitioner (GP) for the prophylactic treatment of migraine.MethodsEligible participants will be recruited in primary care using the International Classification of Headache Disorders III criteria for migraine of the International Headache Society. Participants will be randomized to either multimodal MT treatment or usual care provided by the GP. GPs will be asked to treat the usual care group according to the Dutch GP gui...

Authors: Lee E, Lee S Abstract BACKGROUND Tension-type headache (TTH) decreases the ability to concentrate and function during daily activities in affected patients. As most patients with TTH exhibit forward head posture (FHP). Various interventions have been proposed to resolve TTH. However, research regarding the efficacy of these interventions remains lacking. The present study aimed to investigate the association between FHP and TTH, and to evaluate the efficacy of various intervention methods on headache symptoms and other clinical variables in patients with TTH induced by FHP. MATERIAL AND METHODS Participant...

AbstractBackgroundIn the ongoing Global Campaign endeavour to improve knowledge and awareness of headache prevalence worldwide, Mongolia is a country of interest. It sits between Russia and China, in which prevalence is, respectively, much higher and much lower than the estimated global mean. We conducted a population-based study in Mongolia both to add to knowledge and to inform local health policy.MethodsUsing standardized methodology with cluster random sampling, we selected Mongolian adults (aged 18 –65 years) from five regions reflecting the country’s diversities. They were interviewed by trained re...

CONCLUSION: Most people with migraine in the MAST observational study reported all 3 cardinal symptoms of nausea, photophobia, and phonophobia. As in clinical trials, the most common MBS was photophobia. Patient profiles differed among the groups defined by their MBS. PMID: 31837007 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Migraine is a huge medical problem, accounting for half of the disability produced by all neurologic diseases worldwide. The medication sumatriptan (Imitrex) is well known for the treatment of a migraine attack. Sumatriptan is part of a group of medications known as the triptans. Triptan medications have been in use for over 20 years and are very effective for the acute treatment of headache (relieving migraine headaches that are already in progress). But they also have limitations; triptans can cause temporary narrowing of blood vessels in the heart and elsewhere that can result in side effects, such as chest pain or tigh...
