SYNOPSIS 

Paper Mentions

Interventional Clinical Trial
In this pilot study, the investigator will test the usefulness of gabapentin in treating some of the symptoms associated with POTS. Gabapentin is FDA-approved to treat epilepsy and… Expand

Photophobia in Primary Headaches
TLDR
Photophobia is a debilitating feature of many headache disorders and should not be taken as a cause for concern, but rather considered as a natural human condition. Expand
Photophobia and Seasonal Variation of Migraine in a Subarctic Population
TLDR
To investigate associations between photophobia and seasonal variation of migraine, a large number of patients with a history of photophobia or photophobia were surveyed over a 12-month period in order to establish a cause-effect relationship. Expand
Headache, Visual Loss and Papilledema
This chapter discusses evaluation of nonorganic visual loss, migraine and other headache syndromes, photophobia and post-traumatic headache, papilledema, and idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
The Wavelength of Light Causing Photophobia in Migraine and Tension‐type Headache Between Attacks
TLDR
To ascertain the wavelength of light that patients with migraine and tension‐type headache find uncomfortable between attacks, a sensitivity study is conducted at the University of California, Berkeley. Expand
Unilateral Photophobia or Phonophobia in Migraine Compared With Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalalgias
TLDR
Unilateral phonophobia or photophobia, or both, are more frequent in TACs and hemicrania continua than in migraine and NDPH, and the presence of these unilateral symptoms may be clinically useful in the differential diagnosis of primary headaches. Expand
The Role of the Trigemino Cervical Complex in Chronic Whiplash Associated Headache: A Cross Sectional Study
TLDR
To investigate signs of central sensitization in a cohort of patients with chronic whiplash associated headache (CWAH), a large number of patients are diagnosed with chronic Whiplash-associated Headache-like symptoms. Expand

Neuro-otological manifestations of migraine.
TLDR
Investigation of the vertebrobasilar vascular system appears to be the most likely explanation for vestibulocochlear derangements in migraine, and possible links between Ménière's disease, benign paroxysmal vertigo and migraine are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest that migraine is associated with a sympathetic pupillary deficit which is greater on the habitually-affected side than in nonheadache controls. Expand
Neurovascular disturbances in headache patients.
TLDR
The prevalence of icecream headache, icepick-like pains and premonitory symptoms suggests that pain pathways and neurovascular reflexes to sensory stimulation are hyperexcitable even between headache episodes, and favour a neurological origin of migrainous headache. Expand
THE NATURE OF PHOTOPHOBIA
TLDR
The attempts so far made to explain the mechanism of photophobia fail to account adequately for all the phenomena observed, and a fuller knowledge of the underlying factors not only is of theoretical importance, but is a prerequisite for rational therapy. Expand
MIGRAINE, A CENTRAL BIOCHEMICAL DYSNOCICEPTION
TLDR
Pain is particularly useful in the early years of life in teaching the child to avoid noxious agents in the environment and when pain perception is congenitally absent multiple injuries result. Expand
HEADACHE AND OTHER HEAD PAIN
TLDR
The intention is excellent, but the author appears at times not to be familiar with the day-to-day clinical problems of epileptics and in consequence his endeavour is occasionally hampered and the book will be useful to many patients if only because of its encouraging emphasis on the positive aspects of modern treatment and management.

Clinical diagnosis and computer analysis of headache symptoms.
