BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Migrainous infarction (MI), i.e., an ischemic stroke developing during an attack of migraine with aura is rare and the knowledge of its clinical characteristics is limited. Previous case series using the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) included <10 cases which make conclusions less valid. This study aimed to(More)
A slight predominance of cluster pain on the right side has been reported in several studies. The aim of this large retrospective Nordic multicenter study was to estimate the prevalence of right- and left-sided pain in cluster headache (CH) patients with side-locked pain, the prevalence of side shifts in episodic and chronic CH patients, and the occurrence(More)
BACKGROUND It is unclear whether the autonomic symptoms during cluster headache (CH) attacks are of central or peripheral origin. A metabolic change such as altered lipolysis would reflect a central autonomic dysfunction. OBJECTIVE To study nocturnal lipolysis in CH patients and healthy control subjects. METHODS Microdialysis technique was used to(More)
We have previously shown decreased, nocturnal lipolysis in both phases of cluster headache (CH). Lipolysis is stimulated by noradrenaline (NA), growth hormone (GH) and cortisol, and inhibited by insulin, hormones which are directly or indirectly regulated by the hypothalamus. Our aim was to investigate the nocturnal secretion of NA, GH, cortisol and insulin(More)
We have previously shown decreased lipolysis in both phases of cluster headache (CH), as an indication of a sympathetic dysregulation. Reduced lipolysis could be a result of diminished beta-receptor sensitivity in adipose tissue. The aim of this study was to measure the lipolytic response to noradrenaline in 10 CH patients in remission and in 10 healthy(More)
