Isolated cases and small series have described the development of complex regional pain syndrome, postural orthostatic tachycardia, and fibromyalgia after human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. These illnesses are difficult to diagnose and have overlapping clinical features. Small fiber neuropathy and dysautonomia may play a major role in the pathogenesis(More)
BACKGROUND Fibromyalgia often coexists and overlaps with other syndromes such as chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, and interstitial cystitis. Chronic stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of these illnesses. The sympathetic nervous system is a key element of the stress response system. Sympathetic dysfunction has been reported in these(More)
OBJECTIVE A consistent line of investigation suggests that fibromyalgia is a neuropathic pain syndrome. This outlook has been recently reinforced by several controlled studies that describe decreased small nerve fiber density in skin biopsies of patients with fibromyalgia. The cornea receives the densest small fiber innervation of the body. Corneal confocal(More)
BACKGROUND Vasovagal syncope is an acute manifestation of autonomic nervous system dysfunction. This type of syncope is often associated with other dysautonomic expressions such as migraine, gastroparesis, or postural tachycardia syndrome. Autonomic nervous system dysfunction has been proposed as a key element in the pathogenesis of fibromyalgia. (More)
A consistent line of investigation proposes that fibromyalgia is a sympathetically maintained neuropathic pain syndrome. Dorsal root ganglia sodium channels may play a major role in fibromyalgia pain transmission. Ambroxol is a secretolytic agent used in the treatment of various airway disorders. Recently, it was discovered that this compound is also an(More)
INTRODUCTION Tetrabenazine is a benzoquinolizine with a high antidopaminergic potential due to a monoamine depletion effect that acts equally on the three main neurotransmitters (dopamine, noradrenalin and serotonin). This potential explains why this group of pharmaceutical agents has been used for years to treat different types of hyperkinetic syndromes.(More)
INTRODUCTION The application of treatments in the acute phase of a stroke makes it necessary to reduce as far as possible the time required for patients to reach hospital. One of the factors associated with delayed care is the population's scant knowledge about the disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Our aim is to analyse what the population knows about strokes(More)
