Authors: Teixeira JC, Jackson PJ Abstract Distinguishing between central and peripheral causes of vertigo can be challenging not only in an acute setting but also in chronic settings. A thorough review of systems and physical exam can assist providers in differentiating central versus peripheral etiologies and the need for urgent imaging. In this case, a 47-year-old man presented with vertigo, right-sided hearing loss, right-sided headache, and right-sided facial pain that began 4 weeks before while the patient was on a cruise ship. His physical exam findings were notable for anisocoria with right pupil 3.5 an...

Authors: Ossipov MH, Raffa RB, Pergolizzi JV Abstract Migraine is a common, painful and highly disabling neurological condition that has plagued mankind for millennia, but its pathophysiology remained largely obscure until recently. The clinical success of triptans for treating migraine and the discovery that calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) plays a prominent role in migraine led to increased research interest into this disease. An important improvement has been the development of monoclonal antibodies, including galcanezumab, that bind to CGRP or to its receptor, preventing its activation. Subsequent clinica...

Herbal medicines may provide alternative measures for pain management. In this review paper, after introduction of Chinese medicine theory and treatment modality, emphasis is placed on the application of Chinese herbs and herbal formul...
