Three weeks ago, a friend of mine, who has IBS, told me to eliminate flour and sugar after I told her about my symptoms of painful, achy feet, ankles and knees. In addition, I was experiencing migraines every other day, regular fatigue, and persistent brain fog! Three weeks in, after cutting gluten and sugar from my diet, I exhibit none of those symptoms at all! I have only had two headaches in the past three weeks and my energy levels are at an all-time high! -Jackie U. The post Jackie U. appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D..

Authors: Lisicki M, Schoenen J Abstract Introduction: Most preventive migraine treatments modify the brain's excitation/inhibition balance and/or serotonin metabolism, which likely accounts for their unfavourable adverse effect profile. Novel biological therapies blocking CGRP transmission are effective and much better tolerated, but they are expensive and may not influence brain dysfunctions upstream in the pathophysiological cascade of migraine, including premonitory and aura symptoms. Biochemical and clinical studies suggest that there may be another complimentary treatment strategy, the one that targets the undere...

The complex mechanisms underlying migraine are not entirely understood. It has been suggested that descending endogenous pain modulation is an important contributing factor, although research is controversial. A frequently used method to quantify the inhibitory pain modulation system is offset analgesia (OA), defined as a disproportionally large decrease in pain perception in response to a small decrease of painful stimulation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the OA response in patients with migraine and healthy controls, measured at the forehead (trigeminal, V1) and forearm (extratrigeminal). Patients with episodic m...

We describe three cases of lymphoma in which lymphoma mimicked other diseases causing neurological dysfunction, specifically sarcoidosis, vasculitis and infection respectively. Case 1 was a 66-year-old man with subacute progressive diplopia and gait disturbance and investigations revealing a supratentorial para-falcine soft tissue lesion, mid-thoracic cord enhancement and right axillary mass and an elevated serum ACE. Right axillary mass core biopsy was diagnostic of Burkitt lymphoma. Case 2 was a 50-year-old man with several weeks of constitutional symptoms and development of lower limb weakness and numbness, urinary rete...

A 40-year-old male patient was admitted to the emergency department for persistent severe headache unrelieved by paracetamol. He had no medical history but reported asthenia and weight loss (2 kg) over the previous 3 weeks. At admission, blood pressure was 120/80 mm  Hg and physical examination was unremarkable. Laboratory blood tests showed: serum creatinine 1.7 mg/dl, sodium 141 mmol/l, calcium 9.2 mg/dl, C-reactive protein 6 mg/l, leucocytes 11520/mm3, neutrophils 9230/mm3, lymphocytes 1090/mm3, and hemoglobin 13.6 g/dl.

AbstractTo introduce a purely endoscopic endonasal trans-Meckel ’s cave approach or a transclival approach for trigeminal schwannomas (TSs) involving both the middle and posterior fossae. This retrospective study reviewed the medical records and intraoperative videos of 8 patients with TSs occupying both the middle and posterior fossae who underwent an endosco pic endonasal approach (EEA) between January 2017 and October 2019. All 8 patients received total resection under a single-stage EEA. Six patients underwent endoscopic endonasal resection via a purely trans-Meckel’s cave approach, and 2 patients underwent...

We report an increased burden of rare variants in one CpG island and three polycomb group response elements near four migraine risk loci. We found that the association is independent of the common risk variants in the loci. The regulatory regions are suggested to affect different genes than those originally tagged by the index SNPs of the migraine loci. Families with familial clustering of migraine have an increased burden of rare variants in regulatory regions near known migraine risk loci, with effects that are independent of the variants in the loci. The possible regulatory targets suggest different genes than those ori...

ConclusionAseptic meningitis may be an atypical phenotype of NMOSD flare that is easily confused with specific infection. Comprehensive evaluation to exclude an infective etiology and enable accurate diagnosis and timely immunotherapy are critical to prognosis.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to identify perioperative patient-related factors that are associated with the development of persistent postoperative pain (PPP) in patients undergoing spine surgery.Recent FindingsTwenty-one studies published between 2000 and 2019 were included in this literature review. The following five patient-related factors were identified to be associated with the development of PPP after spine surgery: anxiety, depression, pain catastrophizing, pain sensitivity, and preoperative opioid consumption.SummaryThe existing literature suggests that the risk factors for developing chronic pain af...
