Natural Relief for Migraine Headaches

The Migraine And Headache Program

In this simple program you'll learn: 5 Body balancing techniques that free your diaphragm to do its actual job of pumping fresh air into your lungs. This will ensure that your body will have enough resources to do what needs to be done including healing your headaches. Simple breathing technique that boost your oxygen level. In a few minutes of practice, your blood may carry 20% more oxygen to your brain. This can immediately reduce even the worst headaches. Other breathing exercises that spread the oxygen delivered to the brain evenly. The parts of the brain that are often highly oxygen deprived will finally receive fresh oxygen on a plate. Simple head muscle exercises that remove tension from the muscles around the head such as the the jaw, the tongue, the throat, and the eyes. These exercises can quickly relieve tension from the head and eliminate headaches in just a few seconds. New revolutionary neck exercise that removes tension from the neck. Tension in the neck muscles does not only block blood flow to the brain, but will also not support the veins in pumping the blood which is their actual function. Some people experience blast of energy rushing up to their head after doing this exercise. Read more here...

My The Migraine And Headache Program Review

Highly Recommended

Of all books related to the topic, I love reading this e-book because of its well-planned flow of content. Even a beginner like me can easily gain huge amount of knowledge in a short period.

Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Migraine And Tensiontype Headache

Acupuncture Nodes

As with mental disorders and DSM classification, the broad spectrum of headaches also needed to be classified with a symptom-oriented classification. The second edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-2) published in 2004 maintained the three main categories of primary headaches described in the edition of 1988 migraine, TTH, cluster headache and other trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias. It is important for the practitioner trying to treat these disorders with acupuncture to be familiar with this classification in order to make a differential diagnosis between the first two categories because of their prevalence in the general population. The custom of maintaining the common term 'headache' in acupuncture textbooks is still widespread, even today. This results in auricular charts not reporting different points or areas for treating the two different types of headache. In the Chinese standardized map, for example, the term 'migraine' has been reported...

NBCel mutations and migraine

Of the brain interstitial space, acid secretion by glial cells via inward electrogenic Na+-HCO3-cotransporter NBCe1B may have a significant role in the prevention of excessive neural activities. In fact, alkalosis in extracellular spaces is generally associated with enhanced neuronal excitability, while acidosis is known to suppress neural activity 19 . A recent study using NBCe1 knockout (KO) mice confirmed that NBCe1 mediates a depolarization-induced alkalinization (DIA) response in astrocytes 57 . This study revealed that NBCe1 also contributes partially to a DIA response in hippocampal neurons 57 . Bevensee et al. initially reported that the expression of NBCe1B is more abundant in astrocytes than in neuron, while NBCe1C show the reverse pattern of expression 18 . However, the expression of NBCe1C was also found in rat astrocytes 22 . Despite the intensive expression of NBCe1 in brain and the potential contribution of NBCe1 to the extracellular pH regulation in brain, the...

Prophylaxis Of Migraine Headache

The first double-blind study investigating feverfew in migraine prophylaxis was published in 1985 and involved 17 patients who had been chewing fresh feverfew leaves on a daily basis (Johnson et al 1985). Therapeutic effect was maintained when capsules containing freeze-dried feverfew powder were continued, whereas those allocated placebo capsules experienced a significant increase in the frequency and severity of headache, nausea, and vomiting during the early months of withdrawal. Since then, numerous clinical studies have been conducted to determine the role of feverfew in the prevention of migraine headache. In 2000, Ernst and Pittler published a systematic review of six randomised, placebo-controlled double-blind trials of feverfew as a prophylactic treatment and concluded that the current evidence favours feverfew as an effective preventative treatment against migraine headache, and is generally well tolerated. Clinical note Migraine Migraine is a common episodic familial...

Suffering from frequent headaches

Do you suffer from FMS as well as regular bouts with severe headaches If so, you're certainly not alone. No one knows how many people with fibromyalgia suffer from periodic migraines or tension headaches, but doctors know that they happen a lot. The underlying problem could be that whatever in the body that controls pain has gone wrong. Or it could be that the body is overly sensitive to pain. It may even be both. Diagnosing headaches A migraine is a special kind of headache that can be extremely severe and is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting. The pain is usually excruciating people often describe it as blinding. People with migraines often complain that light and sounds bother them, and they generally want to lie down in a dark place alone and in the same position as long as possible (or until their medication kicks in). (For more on migraines, check out Migraines For Dummies, by Diane Stafford and Jennifer Shoquist, MD Wiley .) A tension headache is another type of headache....

Migraine

Gamma-linolenic acid may be beneficial in the prevention of migraine headache when used in combination with other nutritional supplements and as part of an overall management plan, according to an open, prospective, uncontrolled trial involving 168 migraine patients. In the study, patients took a combination of GLA and alpha-LA (1800 mg day), other vitamins, coenzymes and antioxidants, and were instructed to lower their arachidonic acid intake. They were also instructed on correct techniques of self-medication and in stress-reduction and progressive relaxation techniques. Of the 129 patients who were evaluated after 6 months, 86 reported an improvement, with 22 of the total being free from migraine, while 14 were not able to implement the self-management of progressive relaxation and stress reduction techniques. Severity and frequency of attacks were decreased in patients reporting a positive response. Significant reduction in nausea and vomiting was reported in all groups except the...

Headache

A solution of 10 peppermint oil in ethanol has been shown in a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind crossover study to efficiently alleviate tension-type headache. The study analysed 164 headache attacks in 41 patients of both sexes ranging between 18 and 65 years of age, suffering from tension-type headache. The peppermint oil was spread largely across forehead and temples and repeated after 1 5 and 30 minutes. Using a headache diary, the headache parameters were assessed after 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes. Compared with the application of a placebo, the peppermint oil significantly reduced the intensity of the headache after 15 minutes (P < 0.01). The analgesic effect of the peppermint oil was comparable to 1000 mg Peppermint 916

Migraines

An intermittent, severe headache may be a migraine, which usually occurs on one side of the head, and is associated with nausea, vomiting, blurred vision or other visual disturbances such as zigzags, light intolerance, and sometimes tingling or numb arms. Symptoms are caused by the alternate constriction and swelling of arteries supplying the brain. Stress, low blood sugar, and food allergy are common triggers. Migraine affects women more than men, especially premenstrually. SELF-HELP Avoid stress and learn relaxation techniques (see page 217). Consult a dietician, or eliminate trigger foods such as chocolate, citrus fruits, and cheese from the diet for about four weeks. Reintroduce them and observe any changes in symptoms. If you smoke, stop. If you feel a migraine coming on, splash your face with cold water and lie down quietly for an hour. CAUTION Follow the same cautionary advice as for a headache (above).

For Migraine

My reasons for distinguishing this pain from musculoskeletal pain is that migraine is a neurovascu-lar pain which manifests itself on the trigeminal territory and tends to relapse over time. Migraine is a disabling disorder with a high social and economical impact which requires a careful strategy of prophylaxis for reducing the number of attacks and preventing the chronic abuse of painkillers. Here acupuncture can gain ground with honor as an alternative treatment or for use in combination with pharmacological therapy.2-8 Besides body acupuncture, using formulae or personalized sets of points, ear acupuncture also seems to have an interesting role. Its main difference is that at every ear acupuncture session it is necessary to make a diagnosis and to find out which points to treat. Migraine requires a very accurate localization of the points especially in the case of an attack, the algometer should be used with a light hand in order not to overly bother the patient. In 15 patients...

Cut Off My Headache

David did a favor for Goliath by literally cutting off a headache. I am aware that you may figuratively like to have your head taken away sometimes. Headaches can be so painful that people have been known to pound their heads on a wall to relieve the head pain. I have treated many patients with that history. Headaches that don't ever go away, regardless of treatment, need to be evaluated further with a head scan. Morning headaches that go away as the day progresses can be caused by a low functioning thyroid gland. Headaches at the base of the skull or top of the neck radiating to the top are commonly caused by tension with misalignment of upper neck vertebra. This type responds to spinal corrective alignment. Work on eliminating the tension cause. Challenging headaches include hormone fluctuation pain in females around the menstrual cycle. I normally see elevated estrogen levels in saliva testing suggesting inadequate liver clearing of estrogen, with not enough progesterone to cause...

Chronic Headaches

Chronic headaches occur in 3 to 5 percent of adults worldwide. And at least 25 percent of people with FM experience chronic headaches, with chronic migraines and chronic tension headaches being most common. The definition of chronic headache is a headache that occurs at least fifteen days per month for three or more months. Symptoms will vary depending on the type of headache. Chronic migraines usually affect one side of the head and are characterized by pulsating, throbbing, severe pain. The headache can be aggravated by physical activity, bright light, and loud noise. Sometimes nausea and vomiting also occur during migraine headaches. Chronic tension headaches usually start as intermittent headaches, typically involve both sides of the head, and are mild to moderate in severity. They have a band-like pressure or squeezing quality. Diagnosis is made by history and physical exam. Imaging studies and spinal fluid analyses may be done if brain injury, infection, or tumor is suspected. A...

Headaches

Symptoms Pain that is like a crushing weight on the temples or the top of the head, possibly with dizziness and eye strain. These headaches particularly affect schoolchildren, especially girls, who are overstudying for exams (see right), and those stressed at work. They may also be caused by exhaustion, grief (see left), or prolonged periods of standing or walking. Symptoms better For warmth for movement for short naps for pressure on the affected area for excitement. Symptoms worse For cold for emotional stress for overstudying for loss of fluids for noise for music for talking in the evening.

Black Cohosh Cimicifuga Racemosa

Black cohosh has been associated with mild gastrointestinal side effects that may be self-limited (8). Overdose can lead to dizziness, tremors, headaches, nausea, and vomiting. One case report of nocturnal seizures occurring in a woman who took black cohosh, primrose oil, and chaste tree exists (9). One case of fulminant hepatic failure after 1 week of therapy with black cohosh alone has also been reported (10). No clinically significant drug interactions are known.

Ginkgo Ginkgo Bloba

Side effects are usually rare and usually consist of gastrointestinal complaints or headaches. Cases of spontaneous bleeding (79) and seizures (80) have been reported. Owing to the possible potentiation of anticoagulant effects, ginkgo biloba use should be avoided in patients taking warfarin.

Valerian Valeriana Officinalis

Side effects of valerian are usually mild and include headaches, nausea, nervousness, palpitations, and drowsiness. Case reports of idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity have also been reported (116). Concomitant use of valerian with alcohol or other hypnotics should be avoided to guard against excessive sedation.

Yogurt Cause of Stealth Pain

I suffered from sinus headaches so badly that I eventually had to see a doctor for medical treatment to relieve the pain. I used to consume 4 to 6 sinus tablets plus 3 aspirins each day. The information and care provided to me from Dr. Bob encouraged me to change my eating habits eliminating sugar out of my diet. I have not had one sinus headache in over four years nor have I taken any sinus medication.

Effects on the Central Nervous System

The observation that sensitive subjects are more likely to have trembling hands is considered to be a CNS effect and not a direct effect on muscle. Caffeine doses higher than 15mgkg_1 induce headaches, jitteriness, nervousness, restlessness, irritability, tinnitus, muscle twitchings, and palpitations. These symptoms of chronic excessive caffeine intake are part of the criteria used to make the diagnosis of caffeinism. The same symptoms have been reported in adults on abrupt cessation of caffeine use. With 100-200 mgkg-1 doses, mild delirium appears, followed by seizures and death. Although tolerance with low doses led to a pleasant stimulation, alertness, and performance benefits, on withdrawal, headache, drowsiness, fatigue, and anxiety were reported.

Fruit and Veggie Diet

DeMaria because I had bad acne, sinus infections, stiff neck and headaches, fluid in my ears and allergy attacks. I was taking medication for my sinuses, which I don't need much any more. Following Dr.'s recommendations, I have eliminated sugar and dairy and I now eat more green veggies and drink more water. I feel much better every day. I know that my healing process is well on its way. God made us, He knows how to fix us. But it is a process and requires discipline. Thank God for the knowledge that He has given to Dr. Bob.

Adverse Reactions

A systematic review of the herb's safety, published in 2005, analysed data from six electronic databases, postmarketing surveillance studies, spontaneous reporting schemes (including WHO), herbalist organisations and manufacturers (Daniele et al 2005). The review concluded that vitex is a safe herbal medicine and any adverse effects associated with its use tend to be mild and reversible. The most common adverse effects are nausea, headache, gastrointestinal disturbances, menstrual disorders, acne, pruritis and erythematous rash. Additionally, no drug interactions have been reported.

Digestive disorders

Symptoms Indigestion, with belching, nausea, and possibly vomiting of bile. The abdomen feels either bloated or empty, and stomach ulcers may have formed. Diarrhea alternates with constipation. The tongue has a thick, white coating, and there may be a headache. The digestion is highly sensitive, yet there may be cravings for sour foods that aggravate it, such as pickles, vinegar, and wine. Overindulgence and pregnancy often trigger the symptoms. The remedy is given to babies who vomit breast milk and will not suckle, or to their mothers.

Encephalitis California

Usually, symptoms begin with headache, fever, and prostration, leading to hallucinations, confusion, paralysis of one side of the body, and disturbed behavior, speech memory, and eye movement. There is a gradual loss of consciousness and sometimes a coma epileptic seizures may develop. If the meninges are affected, the neck is usually stiff and the eyes are unusually sensitive to light.

Medical management of ulcerative colitis

The reported dose-related side-effects of sulphasalazine include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, azospermia and headaches and occur in up to 20 of patients. In cases of sulphasalazine intolerance, hypersensitivity or male infertility the use of mesalazine or olsalazine is indicated. These drugs are appreciably more expensive than sulphasalazine, but are much better tolerated (Jewell 2000a).

Historical Background And Usage

In other places, the plant is used in traditional medicine for the treatment of skeletal fractures, and to control blood sugar and asthma. The seed oil is an emollient, and is used for treating discharge from the ear, for removing facial freckles, and for treating skin diseases. The seed powder is given for menstrual disorders by the tribal communities of Madhya Pradesh (India). In homoeopathy, the plant is considered an excellent remedy for chronic fever with headache.

Clinical Manifestationssystemic

An extensive discussion of the systemic manifestations of HIV AIDS would be quite lengthy and beyond the scope of this chapter. Note will be made of the PHI, which presents with fever, myalgias, pharyngitis, arthralgias, headache, and malaise. Nonpruritic maculo-papular rash of the face and trunk is reported in 30 to 70 of cases (10) Generalized lymphadenopathy, nausea, vomiting, neurological complications, oral ulceration, and candidiasis might be observed. Since PHI can present before antibody test seroconversion, diagnostic testing should utilize measurement of specific viral antigens or viral load for detection of HIV infection.

Fine Tuning Your Pain Filter

Finally, bear in mind that being pain-free is usually a temporary condition. Most of us live with minor aches and pains, which occur for a variety of reasons. To prove this, you could take a poll of your colleagues or friends. Ask them if they have experienced any one of these three conditions in the past few weeks (1) low back pain (2) neck pain or (3) headache. Most adults have had pain of one of these types in the recent past. So, although your pain filter may be working overtime, do keep in mind that most pain conditions are relatively benign.

Consistency And Standardization

Regulate quality control measures for herbal products, the consumer must rely on the integrity of the manufacturer. Unfortunately, numerous instances of misbranding, adulteration, and contamination of herbal products, sometimes resulting in poisoning, have been reported.2,3 Consistency and standardization of extracts are other areas that need to be examined. A 1995 study by Consumer Reports of ten popular brands of ginseng showed that the amount of active ingredient varied considerably, with some actually having no ginseng in them.4 Another study of feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) preparations used to treat migraine found that many commercial brands had no detectable levels of parthenolide, the active component in fever-few.5 To complicate matters, some herbal preparations may have several active constituents so which one should be standardized Sometimes the active ingredients have not even been identified. However, without adequate guidelines and regulations, consumers cannot be...

James E Smith Revised by Michael J Kuhar

Nutmeg contains elemicin and myristicin, whose structures have some similarities to the hallucinogen MESCALINE as well as to the Psychostimulant Amphetamine. It has been hypothesized that el-emicin and myristicin might be metabolized in the body to form an amphetamine- and or mescaline-like compound, but this has not been proven. The effects of nutmeg have been reported to have some similarities to those produced by MARIJUANA however, the large amounts of nutmeg that must be ingested to get behavioral effects can cause dry mouth and thirst, increases in heart rate, vomiting and abdominal pain, severe headaches, agitation, and panic attacks.

Mood Disorders Depression Anxiety Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Anxiety is a symptom that may include physical or psychological feelings of distress and worry, changes in heart rate, skin temperature, and myriad other features. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is an anxiety disorder that presents as excessive, uncontrollable, and often irrational worry about everyday problems for at least six consecutive months. This worry limits people's ability to work, go to school, and function in the community. People with GAD are more symptomatic than people with anxiety as a symptom. They may anticipate disasters, exhibit catastrophic thinking, have fatigue, fidgeting, headaches, muscle aches, trembling, sweating, and insomnia.

Table 104 Common Types of Injections to Treat Nonmalignant Pain

Tendon (for tendinitis, lateral epicondylitis, etc.). Medication is injected near the nerve but not into the nerve (for reflex sympathetic dystrophy, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal nerve compression syndromes, etc.). Medication is delivered to the epidural space in the spine (for spinal stenosis and lumbar or cervical radiculopathy from a herniated disk). Injections are performed around the facet joints in the spine for relief of pain usually due to arthritis of the facet joint itself (for cervical facet and lumbar facet arthritis). Botulinum toxin is injected directly into the muscles to decrease muscle spasm or spasticity (for spinal cord injury, stroke, migraine headaches, etc.). Medication is injected into the joint space (for knee

Malignant Phaeochromocytoma

Recurrence or persistence of symptoms in patients who have previously undergone surgery for phaeochromo-cytoma may indicate malignancy. Symptoms include hypertension (sustained or paroxysmal), headaches and palpitations. Recurrent or distant metastatic disease may be confirmed by measuring urinary catecholamines and metabolites (metanephrines and vanillyl mandelic acid) levels in an acidified 24 hour collection.

Side Effects of NSAIDs

Behavioral problems in children taking chronic medication can result from many different causes. In general, the NSAIDs do not cause misbehavior, changes in attitude, poor sleeping, difficulty studying, or similar side effects. However, very strong NSAIDs, such as indomethacin, are known to cause headaches, depression, and dizziness. If there is a significant behavioral problem in a child on an NSAID, I will observe at first and then stop or change the NSAID to see whether there is an improvement in the problem.

Hazard Identification

Despite the failure to show any neurological damage in humans resulting from glutamate ingestion, there are many reports of symptoms associated with Chinese Restaurant Syndrome, also called MSG (monosodium glutamate) Symptom Complex (Raiten et al., 1995) and Idiosyncratic Intolerance. These symptoms, which have frequently been reported anecdotally after eating Asian food, have been described as a burning sensation at the back of the neck, forearms, and chest facial pressure or tightness chest pain headache nausea upper body tingling and weakness palpitation numbness in the back of the neck, arms, and back and drowsiness. After initial reports of this complaint, the symptoms were attributed to the high concentration of MSG in Asian food (Ambos et al., 1968 Schaumburg and Byck, 1968).

LPhenylalanine to Norepinephrine

There is also some evidence that excess L-phenylalanine can cause headaches, insomnia, and irritability. For these reasons, it is important to start with a low dose. L-Phenylalanine doses can range from 500 milligrams to 1500 milligrams daily taken on an empty stomach. Overdose symptoms are headaches, insomnia, and irritability.

Allergic rhinosinusitis

The sinuses and in uncomplicated allergic rhinosinusitis, sinus radiographs may demonstrate mucosal thickening. Some patients may appreciate nasal congestion as headache rather than as facial pressure pain. Abnormal mobility of the tympanic membrane and the presence of otitis media commonly are noted. Fatigue, perhaps due to sleep disturbances caused by nasal airflow obstruction, commonly accompanies allergic rhinosinusitis (6).

Dangerous Supplements

Athletes at all levels should have their supplement use carefully monitored. Coaches, parents, or others working with athletes should ask what they take and in what dosage and frequency. Labels should be examined, and all information should be documented in the medical record. It is best if athletes try only one product at a time, and supplement use should be discontinued if any unusual dizziness, stomach upset, or headaches occur. All coaches should be familiar with the available supplements and their dangers. see also Dietary Supplements Sports Nutrition.

Moniliasis See thrush

Monkeypox in humans produces a vesicular and pustular rash similar to that of smallpox. The incubation period from exposure to fever onset is about 12 days, and the typical illness with fever, headache, muscle ache, and rash lasts from two to four weeks. The rash, which appears as raised, acne-like bumps, appears within a few days and goes through several stages before crusting and falling off.

Historical Cultivation And Usage

Moringa oleifera Lam. is most widely cultivated species of the monogeneric family in many locations in the tropics. It is an important crop in West, East, and South Africa, tropical Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Florida USA, and the Pacific Islands. All parts of the Moringa tree have long been consumed by humans. Young unripe pods are cooked with curries as a preventive against intestinal worms. Unani practitioners prescribe soup made from the pods in sub-acute cases of enlarged liver and spleen, articular pain, debility, neurological disorders, and skin disease. Seeds from the pods, ground with water and instilled into the nostrils, cure headaches due to colds and rhinitis.

Combating mental and physical fatigue

During consultation the client should be encouraged to discuss any problems and to establish reasons for the lethargy or tiredness. There are many factors that may cause the condition stress at work or in the home feeling overburdened or overworked insufficient time for rest, relaxation or enjoyment feeling unwell, suffering with headaches, migraine, insomnia or heavy and prolonged periods. There may also be psychological problems such as unhappiness, depression, feelings of low esteem or lack of achievement etc.

How can I go about changing my diet

Sometimes a change to the diet produces - for the first few days only - some unpleasant side effects. If people suddenly stop drinking coffee, for instance, they may get withdrawal symptoms (e.g. headaches), which then begin to clear up after a few days when they start to feel much better. Symptoms such as these can be reduced if you cut down gradually, rather as if you were weaning yourself from a drug. It also helps to drink plenty of water (a minimum of eight glasses throughout the day is recommended).

The often subtle but devastating effects of dehydration

Most people don't drink nearly enough water, and the effects are subtle but devastating to your training and fat burning efforts. Let me explain. Did you ever wake up in the morning and feel so groggy it almost felt like a hangover Maybe you didn't even want to get out of bed. Guess what You were probably dehydrated. In fact, a hangover - headache, tiredness, and fatigue is partially caused by the dehydration from the diuretic effects of alcohol.

Table 114 Antidepressant Medications

Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline). Notable Side Effects Nausea and stomach upset, agitation, difficulty sleeping, headache, decreased libido, and other sexual dysfunction (problems with erections, etc.). Rarely there are associated suicidal thoughts. Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs) Action Increase serotonin and norepinephrine levels in the brain. Drugs Cymbalta (duloxetine), Effexor (venlafaxine). Notable Side Effects Nausea and stomach upset, sedation, dry mouth, tremors, and headache. Serotonin Antagonist Reuptake Inhibitors (SARIs) Action Increase serotonin levels in the brain. Drugs Desyrel (trazodone), Serzone (nefazodone). Notable Side Effects Nausea and stomach upset, sedation, headache, dizziness. Desyrel is rarely associated with sustained and painful erection in men.

Uses Described in Folk Medicine

In Malaysia, the roots are used to cure boils (10,17,18), wounds, ulcers (10,18,19), fever, as a tonic after birth (10,18), and for intestinal worms (10). They are also used as a paste to relieve headache (10), stomachache (10), pain caused by syphilis (10,19), and bleeding gums (10,20). In Sabah and Kalimantan, a decoction of the bark is drunk to relieve pain in the bones and a decoction of the leaves is used for washing itches (10).

Treatment And Prognosis

In controlling symptoms of vertigo, and to a lesser extent, disequilibrium, and offer a degree of anxiety reduction that meclizine does not. Essential to the treatment of imbalance is management of the underlying systemic condition. This may be relatively simple in cases where the symptoms are related to overmedication or a relatively treatable condition such as migraine, but much of the time, the balance function that has been lost cannot be regained and therapy must be directed toward vestibular rehabilitation (23). Prognosis for patients with severe bilateral peripheral vestibular loss is poorer than for unilateral dysfunction, while patients with disruption of central pathways may be able to compensate significantly if the systemic disease process is controlled. Ongoing efforts to develop sensory substitution protocols may provide patients with severe vestibular loss increased rehabilitative potential (24).

Chronology of Problems

Arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, alcoholism, ulcers, kidney disease, liver disease, migraine, tuberculosis, stroke, psychiatric problems, epilepsy, lung disease, venereal disease, sciatica, drug dependency, thyroid disease, hepatitis, skin disorders, AIDS, fractures, multiple sclerosis, endometriosis, lupus, cancer, heart attack, carpal tunnel, breast implants, irritable bowel, Sjogren's, asthma, posttraumatic stress, sinusitis, vasculitis

Neurofibromatosis 365

Other symptoms of NF2 may include facial weakness, headache, vision changes, and a lump or swelling under the skin caused by the development of a neurofibroma. In a family member at risk for NF2, a positive diagnosis can be made if mild signs of NF are found elsewhere, such as one or two cafe-au-lait spots or a small lump under the scalp or skin.

Premenstrual Syndrome PMS

PMS is characterized by symptoms including mood swings, irritability, insomnia, joint pain, tender breasts, headache, and bloating and starts approximately 2 weeks before menstruation begins. The cause is likely a hormonal imbalance, too much estrogen being produced by the body as opposed to the amount of progesterone. In studies, eating complex carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes, pasta, rice and oats throughout the day has relieved symptoms due either to the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that elevates mood, or to the stabilization of blood sugar levels. Caffeine-sensitive individuals have experienced relief when the beverage has been eliminated from the diet. Estrogenic foods such as soy and other legumes stabilize hormone levels by interfering with and limiting the uptake of estrogen that the body produces. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce symptoms of PMS.

What are the major side effects associated with H2 blockers and PPIs

The drugs are absorbed into your bloodstream and circulate throughout the body, so the effects are not limited to the stomach and esophagus. These effects are usually mild and tend to resolve with time. In other cases, the side effects can be severe enough to warrant stopping the medication. These medications have also been reported to cause headaches. Particularly, those who have frequent migraines may have increased headache symptoms. Headache Headache

Side Effects of Corticosteroids

The side effects of corticosteroids are numerous and very common. They include Cushing's syndrome, fluid retention, increased appetite and weight gain, truncal obesity (skinny arms and legs but increased fat on back and stomach), moon face (fat cheeks), stretch marks, acne, growth retardation, bone-weakening calcium loss, avascular necrosis, muscle weakness, poor blood sugar control (diabetes), cataracts, increased intraocular pressure, increased infections, oral and vaginal thrush, atherosclerosis, extra hair growth, and mood changes. In addition to these common side effects, corticosteroids also may cause high blood pressure, inflammation of the pancreas, and pseudotumor cerebrae (increased pressure in the brain, associated with severe headaches and visual problems).

Thus, in evaluating the response to antibiotic therapy, the clinician should consider primarily the patient's overall sense of well-being and symptoms, such as headache, generalized myalgias, and weakness. Objective signs of infection may lag and should not be misinterpreted as indicating a failed response. In this regard, it is crucial to assess the patient, not the laboratory parameters.

Essential Exercises for Fibromyalgia

Conversely, as the chest wall tightens the upper back muscles grow weak and stay in a lengthened position. This creates poor support for the neck and can lead to headaches as well as upper back pain. And when abdominals grow weak from disuse, the entire musculature of the lower trunk can lose its girdle-like, stabilizing purpose.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disorder caused by abnormal deposition of antigen-antibody complexes. Kaposi is credited with the first description of the disorder in 1872 and noted disturbed neurologic function in his report (92). Although any organ system in the body can be affected, patients most often have arthritis (88 ), butterfly rash (79 ), pericarditis (64 ), and kidney dysfunction (48 ). Neurologic sequelae of lupus are common and have been estimated at 37 of patients (93). Neurologic manifestations are quite diverse and can include motor deficits, seizures, cranial nerve dysfunction, headaches, cerebral hemorrhages, and myelitis. Cranial neuropathy has been estimated in 11 of cases (93). The facial nerve is the most common cranial nerve involved, with a roughly 5 prevalence. Bilateral facial involvement has also been described (94).

Talking To Your Children About Diabetes

School-age children tend to show strong emotions in reaction to change. They may show anger at both parents Why did you let this happen They tend to have a lot of somatic complaints (headache, stomach pain, fatigue), especially when leaving for school. The child is often fearful to leave the ill parent he or she often assumes a protective role. Earlier in this stage, children are fearful that if they leave, the parent may die. As such, preoccupation and fear of death may be common.

How Receptive are Primary Care Patients to Self Administered Treatment

Consumers typically engage in a high level of self-administered treatment for various health problems. Segall and Goldstein (1989) inquired about treatment preference for a variety of physical ailments using a randomly selected community sample of 524 adults. Participants were asked What type of treatment would you use if you experienced this condition The conditions included feelings of dizziness, bowel irregularity, constant tiredness, frequent headaches, rash or itch, shortness of breath, unexplained loss of weight, difficulty sleeping at night, loss of appetite, and stomach upset indigestion. Respondents indicated that they were more likely to use self-administered treatment with stomach upset, bowel irregularity, and difficulty sleeping, while for weight loss, shortness of breath, and frequent headaches they were more likely to choose to visit a physician. Being younger, unmarried, and female were associated with the intention to engage in self-administered treatment for common...

How Effective Is Self Help in Primary Care

Meta-analytic reviews of the efficacy of self-administered treatments (Bower, Richards, & Lovell, 2001 Cavanagh & Shapiro, 2004 Cuijpers, 1997 Gould & Clum, 1993 Scogin, Bynum, Stephens, & Calhoon, 1990) conclude that self-administered treatment is significantly more effective than no treatment for problems ranging from fears, depression, headache, insomnia, social skills, parent-child training, to sexual dysfunction. This effect extends to follow-up periods of several months. Surprisingly, several studies have found that self-administered treatment is as effective as therapist-administered treatment (Cuijpers, 1997 Gould & Clum, 1993 Marrs, 1995 Scogin et al., 1990) with the effect sizes for self-administered

Alcoholsensitizing Agents

The most commonly used alcohol-sensitizing agent is disulfiram, which has been used in clinical practice since the 1950s to deter alcoholics from drinking. It is not an aversive drug in the strict sense of the word, since it is not used, as apomor-phine is used, to condition individuals to have an aversive response at the sight or smell of alcohol. Rather, its objective is to deter drinking by the threat of having a very unpleasant reaction if one does drink alcoholic beverages. Its severity depends on the amount of alcohol and disulfiram in the blood. The symptoms of the reaction include facial flushing, tachycardia (rapid heart beat), palpitations, dyspnea (indigestion), hypotension (lowered blood pressure), headaches, nausea, and vomiting. Deaths have occurred with severe disulfiram ethanol reactions (DERs).

Are there treatments to prevent attacks and lessen risk of disability

After 2 years of treatment, exacerbations are reduced by approximately 30 for each of these approved products. Although subcutaneous interferon-beta-lb (Betaseron) and interferon-beta-la (Rebif) have similar salutary reductions in exacerbations at l year, this is not seen in this time frame with Avonex or with Copaxone. The higher dose interferons have more side effects associated with them with their initial use. Both high-dose forms of interferon-beta are associated with injection site reactions as well as significant flu-like reactions, principally consisting of fever, headache, and diffuse aches and pains. Local skin reactions may be prominent. These side effects become less severe and may disappear within a few weeks of initiating therapy. Glati-ramer acetate, similarly, is associated with injection site reactions about half as frequently (about 40 ) and an anxiety-like syndrome with chest tightness in a smaller proportion of patients. A flu-like...

Challenges With Disclosure

Answer When deciding whether to tell your employer about your diagnosis, ask yourself, Would I disclose my illness if it were some other medical condition, such as migraines or diabetes If not, it may not be necessary to disclose that you have bipolar disorder. If your symptoms affect your ability to fulfill your work requirements, however, you may want to talk to your employer to learn more about potential accommodations (for example, flexibility in your schedule and deadlines). If you're looking for a new job, you are not required by law to disclose your illness. However, we do recommend gathering information about aspects of the job that could trigger a future mood episode, such as shift work, stressful deadlines, or extended workdays. This may help you decide if it's in your best interest to pursue the position.

Risks Associated with Dieting

The hope is that a proper diet will facilitate a longer healthier life. There are many different dieting options available to the consumer. Many of these dieting practices can take a toll on the human body, with consequences ranging from mild rashes or headaches to severe cardiac problems and even death. This type of diet may indeed show an initial period of weight loss, but most of the weight loss is not due to the miracle of 'switching the body's metabolism over to burning fat stores.' It is due to a diet-induced diuresis (Denke 2001 59). A diet low in carbohydrates changes some of the metabolic processes in the body, leading to an increase in the production of urine by the kidneys. Furthermore, these diets calling for elevated quantities of protein may not be healthy because h igh levels of animal protein intakes have been linked to higher risks for coronary heart disease and cancer . . . and also have been linked to higher risks for osteoporosis, and renal disease,...

Severe acute respiratory syndrome 449

Septicemia is characterized by sudden onset of fever, chills, rapid breathing, headache, nausea or diarrhea, and clouding of consciousness. Skin rashes and jaundice may occur, and the hands may be particularly warm. If large amounts of toxins are produced by the bacteria the patient may fall into a state of septic shock.

Believing That All Your Problems Are Caused by Fibromyalgia

Also, keep in mind that you could have another medical or psychological problem altogether, and it may not stem directly from fibromyalgia. For example, many people with FMS also suffer from arthritis, chronic headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, or other medical problems. (Read more about other medical problems in Chapter 2 and Chapter 6.) You need to get these other problems identified so that they can be treated, too.

Feeling That Youre a Defective Person Because of Your Fibromyalgia

The reality is that most people, at some time in their lives, have a serious and chronic medical problem. It may be arthritis, it may be diabetes, it may be chronic headaches, or it may be something else but nearly everyone at some point has a weak spot. In your case, your weak spot is fibromyalgia. FMS is nothing to be embarrassed about. It just is. As long as you're working to control your symptoms as best you can, then you're doing the right thing. So mentally pat yourself on the back You deserve it.

Sinclair Upton 18781968 American social reformist and author

S inclair had been living on fried foods and sweets when he was afflicted with indigestion and headaches. These ailments tended to occur when he was focused on his writing and didn't spend much time exercising. He attempted such treatments as Horace Fletcher's diet and the diets practiced at John Harvey Kellogg's Battle Creek Sanitarium (including vegetarianism). After Sinclair met a woman who used fasting to cure her and her friends' various illnesses, he, too, began fasting and became a staunch supporter. He describes the benefits of such abstention from food in his book The Fasting Cure (1911), where he also repudiated the diet claims he made in his earlier co-authored book Good Health and How We Won It (1909). In The Fasting Cure, Sinclair rejects the classic American emphasis on rich and plentiful food like fried chicken and rich gravies and pastries, fruit cake and candy and ice-cream, seeing it as socially unacceptable and as unhealthy. Sinclair claimed that by the second day...

Parasites that are in the intestine and cross the intestinal barrier

Clinical symptoms of taeniasis may include hunger pains, change in appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, or constipation. However, taeniasis may be asymptomatic, which poses a problem for the determination of the prevalence of this parasite in studied populations (Hoberg, 2002 Muller, 2002). Neurocysticercosis (NCC) symptoms may include epileptic seizures, sensory and movement defects, dementia, and meningitis, as well as symptoms of increased pressure in the brain, such as nausea, vomiting, and headaches. In endemic areas in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, it has been shown that 50 of late onset epilepsy is due to NCC (Hawk et al., 2005). Although the luminal infections by adult tapeworms can be treated readily by praziquantel, this stage of infection usually is undetected (Flisser et al., 2004). Also, treatment of the adult stage parasites does not eliminate the reservoir of parasites present as cysticerci in intermediate hosts. Therefore, current research has focused on understanding...

Spurlock Morgan 1970 American screenwriter and independent film director

In the film, Spurlock eats three meals a day at McDonald's for thirty days. He also orders a super-sized meal whenever it is offered. In doing so, Spurlock more than doubles the daily caloric intake recommended by the USDA. Additionally, Spurlock limited his normal exercise regime in order to better match that of the average American. He walked 1.5 miles a day instead of his usual 3 miles. As a result, Spurlock gained 25 pounds and suffered severe liver dysfunction and depression. After Spurlock finished the film, his body fat soared from ii to i8 per cent, he was racked with headaches, and his liver

Types of Hypertension

Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) may appear in otherwise healthy women after the twentieth week of pregnancy. It is more likely to occur in women who are overweight or obese. PIH may be mild or severe, and it is accompanied by water retention and protein in the urine. About 5 percent of PIH cases progress to preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is characterized by dizziness, headache, visual disturbance, abdominal pain, facial edema, poor appetite, nausea, and vomiting. Severe preeclampsia affects the mother's blood system, kidneys, brain, and other organs. In rare cases, the woman can die. Preeclampsia is more likely to occur during first pregnancies, multiple fetuses, in women with existing hypertension, and in women younger than twenty-five years old or over thirty-five years old. If convulsions occur with PIH, it is called eclampsia. PIH disappears within a few weeks after birth.

What Would Young People Have Liked Their Rheumatologist Or A Rheumatology Team Member To Have Told Them When They Were

Doctors who look after young people ask How have you been and if you aren't confident talking to doctors and say, Alright, they still ask you if your joints are aching, have you any headaches lately But if you go to an adult doctor, and they ask How have you been lately and you say Alright, they don't ask you all those questions. They say Ok then, see you in 6 months, and you go. I think the adult doctors are probably much stricter and not as kind compared to the other doctors, who probably have a better sense of humor.

Ginkgo Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo appears to be relatively safe with side effects that are usually mild and limited to gastrointestinal complaints, headache, nausea, and vomiting (22,106). However, a small number of serious bleeding problems have been reported for subjects taking ginkgo preparations, who in most cases were receiving concurrent anticoagulant drugs. These have included two subdural hematomas (108,109), one in a patient who was taking paracetamol and an ergotamine-caffeine preparation (109), one intracerebral hemorrhage when ginkgo was taken with warfarin (110), one subarachnoid hemorrhage (111), and a case of hyphema resulting from combination with aspirin (112). The significance of these reports is uncertain but it seems advisable for patients taking anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs not to take ginkgo (22). A study using probe drugs for CYP1A2, CYP2D6, CYP2E1, and CYP3A4 activity showed no significant effect on CYP activity with 28-day supplementation with a G. biloba preparation (40).

Clinical Manifestations

Bell Palsy

The features of migraine headache are not clearly differentiated from those of severe tension headache caused by muscle contraction. Both types of headache are usually unilateral, have a female-to-male predominance of 3 1, are activated by stress and menstruation, and are associated with varying neurologic signs and symptoms. The unilateral nature of the headache is not fully explained by describing the pathophysiology causing both types of headache. Most clinicians agree that a vascular effect is inherent in migraine headache. In addition, the HSV-1 genome has been shown in temporal artery biopsy specimens (12). A common finding in patients with migraine headache is a unilateral increase in somatic sensitivity (somatophobia) of the postauricular and occipital area when the hair is combed, yet astute testing shows numbness (hypesthesia) of that area. This finding is typical of both HSV and herpes zoster. Recurrent herpes simplex PGE explains the prodrome, unilaterality, chronicity,...

While hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be better tolerated than chloroquine, rare side effects may include nausea and vomiting, headache, dizziness, blurred vision, and itching. Hydroxychloroquine sulfate may worsen the symptoms of psoriasis.

Symptoms Syndromes and the Value of Psychiatric Diagnostics in Patients Who Have Functional Somatic Disorders

The epidemiology of physical symptoms has been reviewed recently 1,2 . Symptoms account for more than half of all outpatient encounters or, in the United States alone, nearly 400 million clinic visits annually. About one half of these are pain complaints (eg, headache, chest pain, abdominal pain, joint pains), one quarter are upper respiratory (eg, cough, sore throat, ear or nasal symptoms), and the remainder are neither pain nor upper respiratory symptoms (eg, fatigue, dizziness, palpitations). About three fourths of outpatients who present with physical complaints experience improvement within 2 weeks, whereas 20 to 25 are chronic or recurrent 3,4 . Symptoms that are self-limiting (viral respiratory illnesses) or explained readily (eg, angina pectoris in the patient who has classic symptoms and known cardiovascular risk factors, or asthma in the patient who has acute dyspnea and wheezing) are not particularly perplexing. Rather, it is the symptoms that are unexplained and often...

Condylomata acuminata

Symptoms Within two to seven days after exposure, the onset of illness begins suddenly with fever, chills, severe muscular pains, headache, and vomiting. Between the third and fifth day of the infection, a red rash or hemorrhages in the skin appear, and blood pours from all body orifices. At this stage, the face is flushed and the tongue is dry and often coated with dried blood. As blood loss continues, the pulse starts to race and blood pressure drops. This is followed by signs of shock and collapse, with massive hemorrhage and cardiac arrest. In fatal cases, death usually occurs between seven and nine days after onset. Complications A doctor should be called immediately if any of these symptoms appear swollen red eyelids, blurry vision, severe headache, fever higher than 101 degrees F, or a very painful eye. A doctor should be seen within 24 hours for any of the following symptoms no improvement after drops or ointment, eye pain, decreased vision, or eyes that get more red or itchy...

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome

Symptoms Within 10 days of a rat bite, the patient experiences fever, chills, vomiting, headache, muscle and joint pain, and a rash appears. Treatment There is no drug treatment for hepatitis A. While symptoms appear, patients should rest and eat well low-fat, high-carbo-hydrate, easily digested foods in small amounts are good choices. These could include crackers, noodles, rice, or soup. Antinausea medicine can be prescribed for severe nausea. Headaches or body aches may respond to acetaminophen. Normal activities may be resumed when the acute illness is over. Symptoms Many people who are infected have no symptoms at all only about 40 percent of victims ever have symptoms. When they do, the primary (or first) appearance of herpes lesions is the worst, with severe local symptoms and many painful lesions. These last up to 10 days, and it may take two to three weeks to completely recover from this first attack. When the sores fade away, the virus remains behind. The virus is now latent....

Secondary Metabolites

The alkaloids are a broad category of chemicals produced by fungi that are synthesized from several different pathways. Many of these chemicals are thought to be involved in defense and disrupt metabolic processes in herbivores that eat infected grasses, or deter attacking insects. The ergot alkaloids are a collection of alkaloid compounds based on lysergic acid amide, which are produced by fungi in the genus Claviceps (Bacon et al. 1986). There are about 50 known species of Claviceps, commonly called the ergots, most living in tropical regions. The ergots infect many grasses, including rye, wheat, and barley as part of their life cycle. The fungi are endophytic and cause no known disease symptoms in their hosts. However, the alkaloids produced by the ergots can induce various metabolic disorders in the herbivores that consume infected grasses. For example, one of these alkaloids, ergotamine, possesses structural similarity to several neutotransmitters including serotonin, dopamine,...
