Trigeminal neuralgia in children and adolescents: Experience of a tertiary pediatric headache clinic.
CONCLUSION: Trigeminal neuralgia accounted for only a small proportion of patients seeking treatment for headache in pediatric headache clinic over a 5-year period. Unlike findings in adults, vascular compression was not the underlying mechanism in any of our patients. The response to pharmacologic treatment was poor. Nerve block may serve as an alternative when pharmacologic treatment fails. PMID: 33231296 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Headache)

Spatial aspects of pain modulation are not disrupted in adolescents with migraine.
This study aimed to examine spatial pain modulation capabilities tested by the CPM paradigm using test stimulus applied to a local body area. METHODS: Nineteen adolescents with migraine (age 14.9 ± 2.3, mean ± SD; 16 female) and 20 healthy adolescents (age 13.8 ± 2.5, mean ± SD; 16 female) completed this case-control study at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Pressure pain thresholds (PPT) were assessed at the trapezius before and during immersion of the foot in a cold water bath (8°C). RESULTS: In the migraine group (146.0 ...

Erenumab-Induced Severe Nausea Leading to Smoking Cessation: A Retrospective Case Series.
CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of severe nausea secondary to erenumab administration and smoking cigarettes, which finally resulted in complete cigarette smoking cessation. As such, further study is indicated on the benefit of erenumab and other calcitonin gene-related peptide antagonists in migraineurs who smoke to promote smoking cessation.

Reversion From Chronic Migraine to Episodic Migraine in Patients Treated With Fremanezumab: Post Hoc Analysis From HALO CM Study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Migraine preventive medications are used to reduce headache frequency, severity, and duration. In patients with chronic migraine (CM), reversion to episodic migraine (EM) is an important treatment goal. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of fremanezumab on the rate of reversion from CM to EM. METHODS: This phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial included a 28-day pretreatment period and a 3-month treatment period. Patients with CM received subcutaneous fremanezumab quarterly (675 mg at baseline) or monthly (675 mg at baseline; 225 mg ...

Allodynia and Disability in Migraine: The Mediating Role of Stress.
CONCLUSIONS: This study establishes meaningful relationships between allodynia and psychological variables of importance to headache self-management and adaptive coping. Allodynia exerts some effect on disability independent of pain itself, and this relationship is partially driven by stress. This study highlights the potential role of the stress response among those with allodynia, and further research is needed to determine if migraine interventions that target maladaptive stress responses may reduce disability by impeding the feedforward loop of allostatic load.

Migraine and Sport in a Physically Active Population of Students: Results of a Cross-Sectional Study.
In this study, we explored the relationship between migraine and sport in a physically active population of students, analyzing the risk of migraine among sporty students. BACKGROUND: The relationship between sport and migraine is controversial; moreover, several studies report on sport as a migraine trigger, but there is evidence that physical activity could have a relevant role in migraine prevention. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was conducted using the validated ID-migraine questionnaire including specific demo-anthropometric (gender, age, weight, height) and sports variables on a potentially active stude...

Effects of Procedural Discomfort and Expectation of Benefit on Therapy Continuation in Chronic Migraine Patients Treated With OnabotulinumtoxinA.
CONCLUSIONS: In the usual care setting, PD and EOB are not significantly associated with therapy continuation in patients receiving initial treatment with BTX for the prevention of CM. However, after considering sex, age, year of treatment, and number of previous headache preventives attempted, we found that female patients had twice the likelihood of continuing with BTX therapy compared to male patients with CM.

COVID-19 shows some inherent risk factors like cardiovascular comorbidities independent from age, gender, and geographic location. One of the most peculiar features of the COVID-19 pandemic is that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 respiratory infections disproportionately impact patients with hypertension, diabetes, and other cardiovascular comorbidities rather than those with allergic respiratory dise...

This study aimed to clarify the relationship between migraine-like headache and ventriculo-arterial coupling after transcatheter closure of the atrial septal defect in children.
