Pains, chills, fatigue, vomiting and vertigo plague me. Small fiber neuropathy causes it all.

Even neurologists will often miss this ailment. But depending on the cause, prompt treatment might reverse the disease’s progression and allow symptoms to resolve.

Conclusion RESLES manifests as variety of symptoms with less specificity and precipitating factors. Paroxysmal blurred vision may be a relatively specific symptom of RESLES. Levetiracetam, carbamazepine or valproate could be the cause of RESLES, exposure to the rabies vaccine could be another predisposing factors for RESLES as well. RESLES type 1 was therefore found to be highly "reversible" with an excellent prognosis. PMID: 32611957 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: PC-BPPV-ca is the most common among patients with BPPV, followed by HC-BPPV-ca. In emerging and controversial BPPV, MC-BPPV, and Pos-BPPV were more common. For the diagnosis of Pos-BPPV, a combination of the history of typical BPPV, particle repositioning therapy and follow-up outcome is helpful to clarify the diagnosis.

Authors: Jafarov S, Hizal E, Bahcecitapar M, Ozluoglu LN Abstract BACKGROUND: Positional nystagmus elicited by the Dix-Hallpike maneuver often reverses its direction as the patient is re-seated from the provoking head hanging position. The incidence of reverse nystagmus and its association with prognosis in posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (pcBPPV) is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of upright positioning-related reverse nystagmus and its association with the success of canalith repositioning (Epley) maneuver (CRM) treatment in pcBPPV. METHODS: The records of patients th...

Authors: Togha M, Martami F, Abdollahi M, Mozafari M, Cheraghali H, Rafiee P, Shafaei M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite the available prophylactic and acute drugs for migraine management, this disabling disorder remains undertreated especially among pediatrics. In this review, the authors aim at assessing the preventive role cinnarizine plays in treating migraine based on previously published studies. AREAS COVERED: Randomized clinical trials, randomized controlled trials, non-randomized open-label trials and retrospective studies concerning cinnarizine in migraine prevention in children and adults were reviewed. Es...

AbstractVertigo is the sensation of spinning or having one ’s surroundings spin about them. It represents about 25% of cases of occurrences of dizziness Yardley et al. (Br J Gen Pract 48(429):1131–1135, 1998). About 40% patients have peripheral vestibular dysfunction (Neuhauser in Curr Opin Neurol 20:40–46, 2007). Quality of life (QOL) is significantl y impaired by vertigo (Patatas et al. in Braz J Otorhinolaryngol 75:387–394, 2009). To study the effect and compare vestibular exercises on QOL in patients with vestibular disorders. 120 individuals with vestibular disorders like acoustic neuroma, vest...

Dizziness and vertigo are common symptoms. Because there are effective treatments for vestibular disorders, it is always important to make an accurate diagnosis. In acute vertigo, expert clinical assessment is critically important in discerning stroke from non-stroke causes because results of stroke-protocol brain magnetic resonance imaging, including diffusion-weighted imaging, can be falsely negative in the first 24 hours. It follows that acute medical services must have access to clinicians expert in assessing acute vertigo.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that omalizumab was an effective treatment for intractable CSU and did not cause any serious adverse effects other than asthenia, vertigo, and injection site reaction in 4 patients. These findings are relevant because they reflect real-life data. PMID: 32597235 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionVarious patterns of nystagmus including direction-fixed and positional direction-changing nystagmus were observed in RHS patients, and inflammation of the vestibular nerve and inner ear end organs may be responsible for the production of nystagmus in these patients. The results support that the evaluation of vestibular function may be necessary even in RHS patients who do not complain of dizziness or vertigo.
