Tension Headaches vs. Migraine Headaches
 
14:07
A headache is a good indicator that your body is missing something – maybe you need to take a breather, drink some water or change the way you eat. You may have a vitamin or nutrient deficiency or a food sensitivity that is causing this built-up tension. Headaches can be triggered by stress, fatigue, allergies, eyestrain, poor posture, alcohol or drugs, low blood sugar, hormones, constipation and nutritional deficiencies. Your body is telling you that something needs to change, so begin to heed those signals. In this episode of Ancient Medicine today, I'm talking about the different types of headaches and how to get rid of them — treatments, remedies, essential oils and supplements.

This is How Headaches Reveal What is Wrong With Your Health (And How To Fix The Problem Naturally)
 
04:00
This is How Headaches Reveal What is Wrong With Your Health (And How To Fix The Problem Naturally) Headaches are common problem to almost everyone.The most common method of alleviating the pain is to drink plenty of water or eat a banana. But, this trick is not always effective. This is mainly because there are several types of headaches, for which common remedies may not apply. Consequently, individuals are often misdiagnosed when they consult their doctor with regard to headache symptoms. For this article, the purpose is to explore 4 main types of headache, including how to distinguish them, as well as how you can treat them naturally. 1.Sinus Headache This is normally occasioned by a sinus inflammation. You may feel pressure on your cheeks, eyes, and forehead. Sinus headache is also characterized by fever. Treatment: Drink plenty of fluids. Warm water is quite beneficial as it effectively minimizes the inflammation and opens the sinuses. Furthermore, consume foods rich in vitamin C, as the vitamin is abundant in antioxidants and aids the body in combating infections. Also, you can try to apply cold and hot compresses, reduce the pain by eating a soup, or a fresh ginger, because it has powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. 2.Tension Headache With tension headache, you will feel persistent pain or pressure around your head, especially in the back of the head, or at the temples. Furthermore, it can cause a radiating pain above or below the eye area. It often results in nausea or vomiting. Stress is believed to be the cause of tension headache as it brings about the contraction of the neck and scalp muscles. Treatment: A mixture of peppermint oil and ginger tea will help you reduce the pain. Apply some peppermint oil to the hairline to cause a cooling sensation with the intention to relax the head and the head muscles.Also, ginger tea will relieve the inflammation. 3.Cluster Headache More common in women, cluster headache usually appear over one eye. It appears suddenly and results in an excruciating pain on one side of your head. This is often accompanied by a rainy nose, nasal congestion, or a watery eye. While it’s cause is not clearly known, it often occurs immediately a particular nerve pathway is triggered in the brain’s base. Treatment: Apply some capsaicin cream to your nostrils. This will lead to the blockade of nerve pain signals. 4.Migraine While migraine can affect anyone, they mostly affect individuals aged between 25 and 55. Migraines are very complicated kind of headache as they exhibit many other different neurological symptoms. They’re manifested by a deep, severe, throbbing pain on one head side. Other symptoms of migraine include nausea, vomiting, smell, dizziness, too much sensitivity to light, touch, sound, visual disturbances, as well as tingling or numbness in your face. These symptoms normally radiate from top of the head downwards. Treatment: Studies have shown that vitamin B12, or riboflavin, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids are effective in relieving migraines. To prevent migraines, ensure that your diet has sufficient amounts of these nutrients. Moreover, a 2011 study revealed that aerobic exercise can be very effective in preventing these headaches as the preventative migraine medication topiramate. For that reason, a regular workout may substitute medications.

Dr. Berg’s Digest Formula: https://shop.drberg.com/digest-formula-regular Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about twitching under the eyelid. This is called tetany and is a low calcium (hypocalcemia) situation. This is usually because of high cortisol, which dumps acids (H+) in the urine making your body MORE alkaline. Many people look at their urine pH and see it too acid and then start alkalizing themselves, when in fact, they are actually losing acids - a common mistake. Apple Cider Vinegar is the best remedy.

Methaqualone (Quaalude): What You Need To Know
 
21:08
Methaqualone is a sedative that falls outside the benzodiazepine and barbiturate classes. It was once a popular pharmaceutical and recreational drug, but its current use is largely relegated to Africa, particularly South Africa. Because it faced few restrictions when it first entered the market, the drug was widely prescribed and perceived as uniquely safe. We now know methaqualone can be used recreationally and can cause physical dependence. A lot of lore exists around the effects. In reality, it's not a massively unique substance and it can be compared to barbiturates, ethanol, carisoprodol, and meprobamate.

Shingles Explained by Top Pain Doctor in Las Vegas, Nevada
 
01:12
Shingles (also known as herpes zoster) is a painful skin rash that develops from the varicella-zoster virus, which is also the virus that causes chickenpox. Once a person has come in contact or been afflicted with chickenpox, the virus remains within the body. During adulthood, the virus can reactivate within the nerves and cause the development of shingles. Shingles is most common in older adults who have weakened immune systems due to stress, medication, injury, or other medical conditions. It is estimated that one in four people in the U.S. will be affected by shingles at some point in their lifetime.

Howard Schubiner: "The Reign of Pain Lies Mainly in the Brain: [...]" | Talks at Google
 
53:24
Howard Schubiner, MD, is a clinician, author and researcher who has conducted ground-breaking research on a treatment plan that can resolve, rather than manage, chronic pain. Pain isn’t what you think. Neuroscientists are now explaining pain in a way that is counterintuitive to both lay people and physicians. A significant proportion of individuals with chronic pain do not have structural abnormalities, but have pain due to learned neural pathways in the brain. Dr. Schubiner, author of Unlearn Your Pain and co-author of upcoming book, Hidden from View, reviews the current state of brain research and a new form of psychological treatment for fibromyalgia that is superior to the standard treatments.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms | 10 ways your body manifests fibromyalgia
 
06:11
Fibromyalgia Symptoms | 10 ways your body manifests fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a disorder that, in addition to causing muscle pain and fatigue, can also affect us psychologically, since it is a chronic disease that can become incapacitating. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that is characterized by the increase of the body's response to muscle and joint pain. It is accompanied by strong episodes of fatigue , as well as digestive problems, continuous headaches and tingling sensation in the extremities. Its exact cause is not defined, but health experts associate it with genetic factors, sedentary lifestyle and some diseases. Although it develops in different ways in each case, at a general level, patients show an increase in the levels of inflammation that, in turn, triggers other reactions. The problem is that many tend to confuse it with other common conditions and, since they do not provide timely treatment, tend to have complications. For this reason it is important to know how it manifests itself and what signs allow us to suspect its development. Discover it! 1. Rigidity of the body. 2. Difficulties of concentration. 3. Sensation of exhaustion. 4. Pain in the whole body. 5. Poor quality of sleep. 6. Numbness and tingling. 7. Digestive problems. 8. Environmental sensitivity. 9. Sensitivity to temperature. 10.

Many shoulder and neck conditions are caused from fixations/lack of motion from the shoulder blades. The subscapularis muscle is one of the rotator cuff muscles. It is located under the shoulder blade facing the ribs. Adhesions/scar tissue commonly occur in this region limiting normal motion of the shoulders. This causes poor biomechanics leading to many neck and shoulder problems.

How I Got Through Extreme Alcohol Withdrawals & Delirium Tremens
 
54:41
www.SacredSerpent.Webs.Com www.Facebook.Com/SacredStarSeedSerpent Bgingerelli@gmail.com In this brief discussion , I elaborate upon the various detrimental health consequences of frequent alcohol consumption & abuse. I discuss my dangerous and frightening delirium tremens alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Delirium Tremens is the most severe form of alcohol withdrawals - which shocks the entire nervous system and consciousness into a delirious state which resembles a bad psychedelic experience. The withdrawals are often accompanied with strong and vivid hallucinations of bugs, negative entities, death, and a strong sense of deep impending doom. The heart rate is skyrocketed to such a degree that it can be clearly heard by others, and the body will go from being ice cold to drenched in sweat. I hope that this video can either help people get off the bottle, or inspire them to stay away from alcohol all-together. There are better things to be drinking. FROM WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delirium_tremens Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. People may also see or hear things other people do not.[1] Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating.Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs to experience withdrawal from. Delirium tremens typically only occurs in people with a high intake of alcohol for more than a month.[4] A similar syndrome may occur with benzodiazepine and barbiturate withdrawal.[5] Withdrawal from stimulants such as cocaine does not have major medical complications. In a person with delirium tremens it is important to rule out other associated problems such as electrolyte abnormalities, pancreatitis, and alcoholic hepatitis. Prevention is by treating withdrawal symptoms. If delirium tremens occurs, aggressive treatment improves outcomes. Treatment in a quiet intensive care unit with sufficient light is often recommended. Benzodiazepines are the medication of choice with diazepam, lorazepam, chlordiazepoxide, and oxazepam all commonly used. They should be given until a person is lightly sleeping. The antipsychotic haloperidol may also be used. The vitamin thiamine is recommended.Mortality without treatment is between and 40%. Currently death occurs in about 1% to 4% of cases. About half of people with alcoholism will develop withdrawal symptoms upon reducing their use. Of these, three to five percent develop DTs or have seizures.The name delirium tremens was first used in 1813; however, the symptoms were well described since the 1700s.The word "delirium" is Latin for "going off the furrow," a plowing metaphor. It is also called shaking frenzy and Saunders-Sutton syndrome. Nicknames include barrel-fever, blue horrors, bottleache, bats, drunken horrors, elephants, gallon distemper, quart mania, pink spiders, among others. The main symptoms of delirium tremens are nightmares, agitation, global confusion, disorientation, visual and[9] auditory hallucinations, tactile hallucinations, fever, high blood pressure, heavy sweating, and other signs of autonomic hyperactivity (fast heart rate and high blood pressure). These symptoms may appear suddenly, but typically develop two to three days after the stopping of heavy drinking, being worst on the fourth or fifth day.[10] Also, these "symptoms are characteristically worse at night".[11] In general, DT is considered the most severe manifestation of alcohol withdrawal and occurs 3–10 days following the last drink.[9] Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, or rats. These may be hallucinations, or illusions related to the environment, e.g., patterns on the wallpaper or in the peripheral vision that the patient falsely perceives as a resemblance to the morphology of an insect, and are also associated with tactile hallucinations such as sensations of something crawling on the subject—a phenomenon known as formication. Delirium tremens usually includes extremely intense feelings of "impending doom". Severe anxiety and feelings of imminent death are common DT symptoms. DT can sometimes be associated with severe, uncontrollable tremors of the extremities and secondary symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks and paranoia. alcohol,alcohol withdrawal,alcohol withdrawals,dilirium tremens,DTS,the DTS,delirium tremens,alcohol detox,beer,hard alcohol,booze,drinking,drinking alcohol,dangers of alcohol,alcoholism,alcohol abuse,AA,sacred serpent,whiskey,binge drinking,dr cassar

Migraines, headaches and your nervous system.

How is your nervous system impacting your headaches?
Relieve pelvic pain using a wand… it’s almost magic!
 
14:20
Persistent pelvic pain can be devastating. Though not necessarily the cause of your symptoms, often the pelvic floor muscles at the base of the pelvis are in spasm and having them manually released by a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist can relieve symptoms. That isn't the WHOLE story though... have a watch here for that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCgBV6Y28N0 If having your pelvic floor released improves your symptoms you can use a therapeutic wand to get the same relaxation in your pelvic floor by yourself at home. This is great for those moments when you have to take a long car journey or eat something that sets off your pain – use the wand and hey presto! You’re feeling a bit better again. (Do make sure a qualified health professional has assessed you fully and taught you how first). Doing this regularly alongside physiotherapy can really help you to change your symptoms and to feel confidently in control of your own body again. It’s not for everyone, but if you feel this might help you, keep reading… But, the secret is... It's not about the wand. With the vast amount of fantastic research coming out we've moved on from theories of "trigger points" in muscles to a better explanation of peripherally and centrally driven "tension myalgia" within a muscle. The muscle is painful, not because there's a problem with the muscles, but because the brain considers it under threat and so interprets signals from the area as threatening, and emits pain as a response to those signals. Pain is an output from the brain, not an input - you don't get pain in a part of your body which transmits up to your brain, it's up to the brain to determine how signals from the body are interpretted. Like your physiotherapist's finger, the wand creates a counterirritation response (stamping on one foot often makes you forget about a headache) which provides natural pain relief to be released from the brain, reduces any localised inflammation around the pelvic nerves, provides local and centralised desensitisation of the pelvic floor muscles (the nerves aren't so jumpy anymore, and the way they're interpretted is much more relaxed by the brain). But most importantly the wand can give you a sense of control over your own condition, which is known to reduce the actual pain you experience. Cool! It's not about reducing the tension of the muscle or getting rid of knots, it's the process the muscle and whole vaginal region goes through by using a wand regularly that achieves a more relaxed muscle state and that in the end results in reduced pain, urgency and frequency in BPS. It's not the wand, it's not trigger points. And if you don't want to use a wand or can't afford one you can always try using your thumb instead. It works just as well. Having said all that... here's how to use it... http://www.jillybond.com/2017/02/14/heal-pelvic-pain-using-wand-better-magic/ Note: This video is provided as general advice only and does not replace medical advice or treatment. I would always insist that you seek help from a qualified pelvic health specialist physiotherapist, or if you don't have access to one please at least see your local doctor.

Central Pain Syndrome CPS
 
08:05
Focal Pain Syndrome (CPS). What is focal agony disorder?. Harm to the focal sensory system (CNS) can cause a neurological issue called focal torment disorder (CPS). The CNS incorporates the cerebrum, brainstem, and spinal string. A few different conditions can cause it like: *a stroke. *brain injury. *tumors. *epilepsy. Individuals with CPS commonly feel distinctive sorts of torment sensations, for example, *aching. *burning. *sharp torments. *numbness. The side effects fluctuate generally among people. It can begin quickly after an injury or other condition, or it might take months or years to create. No cure for CPS is accessible. Torment pharmaceuticals, antidepressants, and different sorts of drugs can for the most part help give some alleviation. The condition can drastically influence personal satisfaction. What are the side effects of focal torment disorder?. The fundamental side effect of CPS is torment. The agony changes enormously among people. It can be any of the accompanying: *constant. *intermittent. *limited to a particular body part. *widespread all through the body. Individuals for the most part depict the agony as any of the accompanying: *burning. *aching. *prickling or shivering, which is here and there called "sticks and needles". *stabbing. *itching that turns agonizing. *freezing. *shocking. *tearing. The torment is commonly direct to extreme. The agony may even be depicted as anguishing by a few people. In extreme cases, individuals with CPS may have torment notwithstanding when touched daintily by garments, covers, or a solid breeze. An assortment of components may exacerbate the torment. These variables incorporate the accompanying: *touch. *stress. *anger. *other compelling feelings. *movement, for example, work out. *reflexive, automatic developments, such as wheezing or yawning. *loud clamors. *bright lights. *temperature changes, particularly icy temperatures. *sun presentation. *rain. *wind. *barometric weight changes. *altitude changes. As a rule, CPS remains a long lasting condition. What causes focal torment disorder?. CPS alludes to torment that originates from the cerebrum and not from the fringe nerves, which are outside of the mind and spinal line. Consequently, it contrasts from most other agony conditions. Torment is generally a defensive reaction to a destructive jolt, for example, touching a hot stove. No hurtful jolt causes the agony that happens in CPS. Rather, damage to the cerebrum makes the impression of agony. This damage as a rule happens in the thalamus, a structure inside the mind that procedures tactile signs to different parts of the cerebrum. The most well-known conditions that can prompt CPS include: *brain discharge. *a stroke. *multiple sclerosis. *brain tumors. *an aneurysm. *a spinal line damage. *a horrendous mind damage. *epilepsy. *Parkinson's infection. *surgical methods that include the mind or spine. The Central Pain Syndrome Foundation evaluates that about 3 million individuals in the United States have CPS. How is focal agony disorder analyzed?. CPS can be hard to analyze. The agony might be broad and may appear to be irrelevant to any damage or injury. No single test is accessible to empower your specialist to analyze CPS. Your specialist will survey your indications, play out a physical exam, and get some information about your therapeutic history. It's critical to illuminate your specialist about any conditions or wounds you have now or may have had before, and any meds you're taking. CPS doesn't create without anyone else's input. It just happens following damage to the CNS. How is focal torment disorder treated?. CPS is hard to treat. Torment meds, for example, morphine, are now and again utilized however aren't generally effective. A few people can deal with their torment with antiepileptic or energizer pharmaceuticals, for example, *amitriptyline (Elavil). *duloxetine (Cymbalta). *gabapentin (Neurontin). *pregabalin (Lyrica). *carbamazepine (Tegretol). *topiramate (Topamax). Extra prescriptions that may help include: *transdermal creams and fixes. *medical maryjane. *muscle relaxants.

For more information http://www.MidwestHeadaches.com Angie is a life flight nurse. She had a crown on upper right second molar tooth due to tooth pain and decay. Due to continued pain of that tooth, she had root canal treatment. Later still she had that tooth extracted since pain continued. Pain worsened afterwards. Tried antibiotics, muscle relaxers, bite guard, NTI splint and still had no relief. Angie would feel excruciating pain in the right side of her jaw and face. She said it felt like an electric shock and radiates. The pain was so sharp that it stops her from anything that she is doing. Angie thought that she knew what pain was. This pain was at 15 on a 10 point scale! During these episodes, even touching the gum with tongue would make the pain worse. These are symptoms classically diagnosed as Trigeminal Neuralgia. Trigeminal Neuralgia is treated with Tegretol, Neurontin and many other medications that dull the central nervous system, through which the symptoms are 'managed'. If increased doses do not help, neurosurgery procedures including Micro Vascular Decompression are done, not always with relief. Angie was referred to Dr. Raman to diagnose the cause and resolve this pain. She came in for an evaluation and consultation and then chose to go through a series of diagnostic tests. Once the correct jaw/neck alignment was determined, she was fitted with a fixed physiologic neuromuscular orthotic for 90 days. Within the first week of having the fixed orthotic, Angie had a great deal of relief. Within 90 days not only her severe facial pain, but also her 30 year history of headaches, neck pain, back pain and leg pain almost completely resolved.

Fibromyalgia Treatments: 10 Ways to Alleviate Pain
 
09:22
Fibromyalgia Treatments: 10 Ways to Alleviate Pain Fibromyalgia and pain Fibromyalgia (FM) is a condition that causes musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and localized tenderness. The cause of FM is unknown, but genetics may play a role. Symptoms can develop after: psychological stress physical trauma an injury an illness Other symptoms may include depression, poor concentration, and headaches. Treating pain, fatigue, and other symptoms is key. Fortunately, several options are available to help ease and manage FM symptoms and improve your quality of life. Ways to treat fibromyalgia pain FM pain can be minor or serious enough to interfere with daily activities. Thankfully, treatment can help manage pain. 1. Pain relievers Medication is an option to reduce FM pain. Your doctor may recommend over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen sodium. These medications can help: reduce inflammation minimize muscular aches improve sleep quality Shop online for naproxen sodium. 2. Antidepressants These can help ease pain and fatigue. Discuss the possible side effects of using antidepressants for FM with your doctor. For some people, antidepressants can cause a variety of unpleasant side effects such as nausea, weight gain, and loss of sexual desire. 3. Anticonvulsants These seizure medications may also help reduce pain. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved pregabalin (Lyrica), the first anti-seizure drug for FM treatment. Gabapentin, which reduces nerve pain, may be suggested. But these medications come with possible side effects including: dizziness weight gain swelling dry mouth 4. Yoga Research has shown that people with FM who participated in yoga classes experienced improved mood and less pain and fatigue. The classes included: gentle poses meditation breathing exercises group discussions Try taking a yoga class. The practice increases muscle strength, incorporates meditation, and teaches different relaxation techniques. Just be sure to let the instructor know about your condition, so they can adjust the poses as needed for you. Shop online for yoga mats. 5. Acupuncture You may want to try acupuncture for pain relief. It involves pricking the skin with needles to: promote natural self-healing encourage a change in blood flow change the levels of neurotransmitters in your brain treat a variety of health conditions like chronic pain A study in the Journal of Rehabilitative Medicine found that people with FM who received acupuncture benefited from pain relief for at least two years, compared to those who didn’t. For those who cannot tolerate the needles, acupressure may be an option. The risks of acupuncture include soreness, minor bleeding, and bruising after treatment. Always make sure your acupuncturist is licensed to decrease risk of infection from unsterilized needles. 6. Physical therapy Physical therapy techniques aim to improve your range of motion and strengthen the muscles. This can also help reduce FM pain. Your therapist will tailor a program to help manage specific symptoms. They can also teach self-care techniques, including FM education, to help you manage the fatigue and pain on your own. Research shows that pain management education can lead to increased performance during exercise. How can I treat fibromyalgia fatigue? Fatigue is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. You may wake up in the mornings tired despite sleeping through the night. Simple everyday activities can be exhausting. Options for treating FM fatigue include: 7. Vitamin D People with FM often have low levels of vitamin D. In a 2013 study, researchers found that people with FM felt physically better and experienced less fatigue when they took vitamin D supplements. Talk to your doctor before taking vitamin D supplements, as too much can be toxic. Shop online for vitamin D supplements. 8. Exercise Exercise is also an effective way to combat tiredness and improve your energy levels. Exercise increases the brain’s production of endorphins, improves sleep, and reduces depression. Suggested activities for people with FM include walking, biking, and swimming. For some, getting started is difficult with widespread pain; start slow and increase gradually. While this article presents options to consider trying, exercise is the only solution that continues to show benefit in controlled trials. What are other alternative treatments for fibromyalgia? You can incorporate alternative treatments to ease FM symptoms. Talk to your doctor about the following options. 9. Medical marijuana Medical marijuana can ease symptoms of fibromyalgia. One study found that people with FM who took medicinal cannabis experienced: a reduction of pain and stiffness enhanced relaxation an increase in sleepiness feelings of well-being improved mental health

TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia) is a pain that is described as among the most acute known to mankind. TN produces excruciating, lightning strikes of facial pain, typically near the nose, lips, eyes or ears. It is a disorder of the trigeminal nerve, which is the fifth and largest cranial nerve. TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia / tic douloureux) is a disorder of the fifth cranial (trigeminal) nerve that causes episodes of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain in the areas of the face where the branches of the nerve are distributed - lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw, and lower jaw. By many, it's called the "suicide disease". A less common form of the disorder called "Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia" may cause less intense, constant, dull burning or aching pain, sometimes with occasional electric shock-like stabs. Both forms of the disorder most often affect one side of the face, but some patients experience pain at different times on both sides. Onset of symptoms occurs most often after age 50, but cases are known in children and even infants. Something as simple and routine as brushing the teeth, putting on makeup or even a slight breeze can trigger an attack, resulting in sheer agony for the individual. Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is not fatal, but it is universally considered to be the most painful affliction known to medical practice. Initial treatment of TN is usually by means of anti-convulsant drugs, such as Tegretol or Neurontin. Some anti-depressant drugs also have significant pain relieving effects. Should medication be ineffective or if it produces undesirable side effects, neurosurgical procedures are available to relieve pressure on the nerve or to reduce nerve sensitivity. Some patients report having reduced or relieved pain by means of alternative medical therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic adjustment, self-hypnosis or meditation. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com/SandiW/TN4.html What is Trigeminal Neuralgia? Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also called tic douloureux, is a chronic pain condition that causes extreme, sporadic, sudden burning or shock-like face pain that lasts anywhere from a few seconds to as long as 2 minutes per episode. The intensity of pain can be physically and mentally incapacitating. TN pain is typically felt on one side of the jaw or cheek. Episodes can last for days, weeks, or months at a time and then disappear for months or years. In the days before an episode begins, some patients may experience a tingling or numbing sensation or a somewhat constant and aching pain. The attacks often worsen over time, with fewer and shorter pain-free periods before they recur. The intense flashes of pain can be triggered by vibration or contact with the cheek (such as when shaving, washing the face, or applying makeup), brushing teeth, eating, drinking, talking, or being exposed to the wind. TN occurs most often in people over age 50, but it can occur at any age, and is more common in women than in men. There is some evidence that the disorder runs in families, perhaps because of an inherited pattern of blood vessel formation. Although sometimes debilitating, the disorder is not life-threatening. The presumed cause of TN is a blood vessel pressing on the trigeminal nerve in the head as it exits the brainstem. TN may be part of the normal aging process but in some cases it is the associated with another disorder, such as multiple sclerosis or other disorders characterized by damage to the myelin sheath that covers certain nerves. Is there any treatment? Because there are a large number of conditions that can cause facial pain, TN can be difficult to diagnose. But finding the cause of the pain is important as the treatments for different types of pain may differ. Treatment options include medicines such as anticonvulsants and tricyclic antidepressants, surgery, and complementary approaches. Typical analgesics and opioids are not usually helpful in treating the sharp, recurring pain caused by TN. If medication fails to relieve pain or produces intolerable side effects such as excess fatigue, surgical treatment may be recommended. Several neurosurgical procedures are available. Some are done on an outpatient basis, while others are more complex and require hospitalization. Some patients choose to manage TN using complementary techniques, usually in combination with drug treatment. These techniques include acupuncture, biofeedback, vitamin therapy, nutritional therapy, and electrical stimulation of the nerves. What is the prognosis? The disorder is characterized by recurrences and remissions, and successive recurrences may incapacitate the patient. Due to the intensity of the pain, even the fear of an impending attack may prevent activity. Trigeminal neuralgia is not fatal. What research is being done? Within the NINDS research programs, trigeminal neuralgia is addressed primarily through studies associated with pain research. NINDS vigorously pursues a research program seeking new treatments for pain and nerve damage with the ultimate goal of reversing debilitating conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia. NINDS has notified research investigators that it is seeking grant applications both in basic and clinical pain research. An Alternate Strategy Instead of waiting for the pain to become intractable or the medications toxic, an individual with trigeminal neuralgia has the option to request early surgery. This has a number of potential advantages: • Avoid years of medication and intermittent pain • Avoid facing surgery when old or infirm • If the person has a vascular loop, early microvascular decompression will increase the possibility of a successful operation with decreased risk of recurrence (evidence suggests better outcomes and lower recurrence rate the shorter the interval between onset of symptoms and nerve decompression) How To Find Out If You Have a Vascular Loop The conventional MRI scans used to rule out the presence of a brain tumor or multiple sclerosis as a cause of a patients face pain are not adequate to visualize the trigeminal nerve or an associated blood vessel. Fortunately, the continued improvement in MRI neuro-imaging now makes it possible to visualize both. The technique, which is called 3-D volume acquisition, is performed with contrast injection and utilizes thin cuts (0.8mm), without gaps similar to what was developed for MRI angiography and venography. The trigeminal nerve is easily visualized in the axial plane when the MRI series is centered at the midpoint of the fourth ventricle. To ensure an adequate evaluation, the nerve should be seen on three adjacent cuts. Early studies indicate that when an offending vessel is present it will be detected 80% of the of the time. With continued imaging improvements this percentage will definitely increase. Click here for UCSD Trigeminal Neuralgia Sequence Parameters for Seimens and GE MR Scanners. Surgical Options: Non-Destructive Procedures The only non-destructive procedure which reliably relieves the symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia is Microvascular Decompression (MVD). This involves surgical exploration with the operating microscope and visualization of the junction where the Trigeminal nerve enters the base of the brain, followed by coagulation or moving and padding away any compressing blood vessels. The advantage is pain relief without numbness in the majority of patients, which usually lasts indefinitely. If the pain recurs after a MVD, which it does in 10-15% of patients, it can usually be controlled with low dose Tegretol® or Neurontin®. If the pain continues, it will require a repeat MVD or one of the destructive procedures. Surgical Options: Destructive Procedures There are multiple destructive procedures which are beneficial in the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia. The most common of which are glycerol injections, gamma knife radiation, electrocoagulation, and balloon compression. These procedures are all based on interrupting the pain by partial damage to Trigeminal nerve fibers. Generally the more numbness they produce, the longer they last. The specific advantages and disadvantages need to be discussed with the surgeon performing the procedure. These procedures are recommended for patients who have failed MVD or are not candidates for major surgery. Comments Treatment is always individualized. All of the options above should be considered in consultation with a neurosurgeon familiar in their use. Recommendations Based on the data currently available, and in an effort to maximize quality of life, we recommend the following: Patients with less than 10 year life expectancy Refer for destructive procedure if pain not controlled medically without significant side effects Patients with more than 10 but less than 20 year life expectancy Consider destructive procedure May abolish need for continued increasing medications Will make medical therapy easier even if fails Patients with more than 20 year life expectancy Perform thin cut MRI with 3-D Volume Acquisition If vessel present recommend MVD 25 ARTICLE SECTIONS From the Mayo Clinic. Trigeminal neuralgia http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/trigeminal-neuralgia/DS00446 Introduction Signs and symptoms Causes When to seek medical advice Screening and diagnosis Treatment Coping skills Introduction Imagine having a jab of lightning-like pain shoot through your face when you brush your teeth or put on makeup. Sound excruciating? If you have trigeminal neuralgia, attacks of such pain are frequent and can often seem unbearable. You may initially experience short, mild attacks, but trigeminal neuralgia can progress, causing longer, more frequent bouts of searing pain. These painful attacks can be spontaneous, but they may also be provoked by even mild stimulation of your face, including brushing your teeth, shaving or putting on makeup. The pain of trigeminal neuralgia may occur in a fairly small area of your face, or it may spread rapidly over a wider area. Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn't necessarily mean you're doomed to a life of pain. Doctors usually can effectively manage trigeminal neuralgia, either with medications or surgery. Signs and symptoms An attack of trigeminal neuralgia can last from a few seconds to about a minute. Some people have mild, occasional twinges of pain, while other people have frequent, severe, electric-shock-like pain. The condition tends to come and go. You may experience attacks of pain off and on all day, or even for days or weeks at a time. Then, you may experience no pain for a prolonged period of time. Remission is less common the longer you have trigeminal neuralgia. People who have experienced severe trigeminal neuralgia have described the pain as: Lightning-like or electric-shock-like Shooting Jabbing Like having live wires in your face Trigeminal neuralgia usually affects just one side of your face. The pain may affect just a portion of one side of your face or spread in a wider pattern. Rarely, trigeminal neuralgia can affect both sides of your face, but not at the same time. Causes Branches of the trigeminal nerve CLICK TO ENLARGE The condition is called trigeminal neuralgia because the painful facial areas are those served by one or more of the three branches of your trigeminal nerve. This large nerve originates deep inside your brain and carries sensation from your face to your brain. The pain of trigeminal neuralgia is due to a disturbance in the function of the trigeminal nerve. Trigeminal neuralgia is also known as tic douloureux. The cause of the pain usually is due to contact between a normal artery or vein and the trigeminal nerve at the base of your brain. This places pressure on the nerve as it enters your brain and causes the nerve to misfire. Physical nerve damage or stress may be the initial trigger for trigeminal neuralgia. After the trigeminal nerve leaves your brain and travels through your skull, it divides into three smaller branches, controlling sensation throughout your face: The first branch controls sensation in your eye, upper eyelid and forehead. The second branch controls sensation in your lower eyelid, cheek, nostril, upper lip and upper gum. The third branch controls sensations in your jaw, lower lip, lower gum and some of the muscles you use for chewing. You may feel pain in the area served by just one branch of the trigeminal nerve, or the pain may affect all branches on one side of your face. Besides compression from blood vessel contact, other less frequent sources of pain to the trigeminal nerve may include: Compression by a tumor Multiple sclerosis A stroke affecting the lower part of your brain, where the trigeminal nerve enters your central nervous system A variety of triggers, many subtle, may set off the pain. These triggers may include: Shaving Stroking your face Eating Drinking Brushing your teeth Talking Putting on makeup Encountering a breeze Smiling Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men. The disorder is more likely to occur in people who are older than 50. About 5 percent of people with trigeminal neuralgia have other family members with the disorder, which suggests a possible genetic cause in some cases. When to seek medical advice Some people mistake the pain of trigeminal neuralgia for a toothache or a headache. It's not uncommon for people to believe that their facial pain is dental-related, particularly when the pain seems to stem from the gumline or is located near a tooth. If you experience facial pain, particularly prolonged pain or pain that hasn't gone away with use of over-the-counter pain relievers, see your dentist or doctor. Screening and diagnosis If you go to your dentist, an examination of your mouth can reveal whether a problem with your teeth or gums is causing your pain. If you go to your doctor, he or she will want to ask about your medical history and have you describe your pain — how severe it is, what part of your face it affects, how long pain lasts and what seems to trigger episodes of pain. You'll also undergo a neurologic examination. During this examination, your doctor examines and touches parts of your face to try to determine exactly where the pain is occurring and — if it appears that you have trigeminal neuralgia — which branches of the trigeminal nerve may be affected. Your doctor may exclude other possible conditions based on your medical history, the examination, and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of your head. Treatment Medications are the usual initial treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. Medications are often effective in lessening or blocking the pain signals sent to your brain. A number of drugs are available. If you stop responding to a particular medication or experience too many side effects, switching to another medication may work for you. Medications Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol). Carbamazepine, an anticonvulsant drug, is the most common medication that doctors use to treat trigeminal neuralgia. In the early stages of the disease, carbamazepine controls pain for most people. However, the effectiveness of carbamazepine decreases over time. Side effects include dizziness, confusion, sleepiness and nausea. Baclofen. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant. Its effectiveness may increase when it's used in combination with carbamazepine or phenytoin. Side effects include confusion, nausea and drowsiness. Phenytoin (Dilantin, Phenytek). Phenytoin, another anticonvulsant medication, was the first medication used to treat trigeminal neuralgia. Side effects include gum enlargement, dizziness and drowsiness. Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal). Oxcarbazepine is another anticonvulsant medication and is similar to carbamazepine. Side effects include dizziness and double vision. Doctors may sometimes prescribe other medications, such as lamotrignine (Lamictal) or gabapentin (Neurontin). Some people with trigeminal neuralgia eventually stop responding to medications, or they experience unpleasant side effects. For those people, surgery, or a combination of surgery and medications, may be an option. Surgery The goal of a number of surgical procedures is to either damage or destroy the part of the trigeminal nerve that's the source of your pain. Because the success of these procedures depends on damaging the nerve, facial numbness of varying degree is a common side effect. These procedures involve: Alcohol injection. Alcohol injections under the skin of your face, where the branches of the trigeminal nerve leave the bones of your face, may offer temporary pain relief by numbing the areas for weeks or months. Because the pain relief isn't permanent, you may need repeated injections or a different procedure. Glycerol injection. This procedure is called percutaneous glycerol rhizotomy (PGR). "Percutaneous" means through the skin. Your doctor inserts a needle through your face and into an opening in the base of your skull. The needle is guided into the trigeminal cistern, a small sac of spinal fluid that surrounds the trigeminal nerve ganglion (the area where the trigeminal nerve divides into three branches) and part of its root. Images are made to confirm that the needle is in the proper location. After confirming the location, your doctor injects a small amount of sterile glycerol. After three or four hours, the glycerol damages the trigeminal nerve and blocks pain signals. Initially, PGR relieves pain in most people. However, some people have a recurrence of pain, and many experience facial numbness or tingling. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com Balloon compression. In a procedure called percutaneous balloon compression of the trigeminal nerve (PBCTN), your doctor inserts a hollow needle through your face and into an opening in the base of your skull. Then, a thin, flexible tube (catheter) with a balloon on the end is threaded through the needle. The balloon is inflated with enough pressure to damage the nerve and block pain signals. PBCTN successfully controls pain in most people, at least for a while. Most people undergoing PBCTN experience facial numbness of varying degrees, and more than half experience nerve damage resulting in a temporary or permanent weakness of the muscles used to chew. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com Electric current. A procedure called percutaneous stereotactic radiofrequency thermal rhizotomy (PSRTR) selectively destroys nerve fibers associated with pain. Your doctor threads a needle through your face and into an opening in your skull. Once in place, an electrode is threaded through the needle until it rests against the nerve root. An electric current is passed through the tip of the electrode until it's heated to the desired temperature. The heated tip damages the nerve fibers and creates an area of injury (lesion). If your pain isn't eliminated, your doctor may create additional lesions. PSRTR successfully controls pain in most people. Facial numbness is a common side effect of this type of treatment. The pain may return after a few years. Microvascular decompression (MVD). A procedure called microvascular decompression (MVD) doesn't damage or destroy part of the trigeminal nerve. Instead, MVD involves relocating or removing blood vessels that are in contact with the trigeminal root and separating the nerve root and blood vessels with a small pad. During MVD, your doctor makes an incision behind one ear. Then, through a small hole in your skull, part of your brain is lifted to expose the trigeminal nerve. If your doctor finds an artery in contact with the nerve root, he or she directs it away from the nerve and places a pad between the nerve and the artery. Doctors usually remove a vein that is found to be compressing the trigeminal nerve. MVD can successfully eliminate or reduce pain most of the time, but as with all other surgical procedures for trigeminal neuralgia, pain can recur in some people. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com While MVD has a high success rate, it also carries risks. There are small chances of decreased hearing, facial weakness, facial numbness, double vision, and even a stroke or death. The risk of facial numbness is less with MVD than with procedures that involve damaging the trigeminal nerve. Severing the nerve. A procedure called partial sensory rhizotomy (PSR) involves cutting part of the trigeminal nerve at the base of your brain. Through an incision behind your ear, your doctor makes a quarter-sized hole in your skull to access the nerve. This procedure usually is helpful, but almost always causes facial numbness. And it's possible for pain to recur. If your doctor doesn't find an artery or vein in contact with the trigeminal nerve, he or she won't be able to perform an MVD, and a PSR may be done instead. Radiation. Gamma-knife radiosurgery (GKR) involves delivering a focused, high dose of radiation to the root of the trigeminal nerve. The radiation damages the trigeminal nerve and reduces or eliminates the pain. Relief isn't immediate and can take several weeks to begin. GKR is successful in eliminating pain more than half of the time. Sometimes the pain may recur. The procedure is painless and typically is done without anesthesia. Because this procedure is relatively new, the long-term risks of this type of radiation are not yet known. • Coping skills Living with trigeminal neuralgia can be difficult. The disorder may affect your interaction with friends and family, your productivity at work, and the overall quality of your life. You may find that talking to a counselor or therapist can help you cope with the effects of trigeminal neuralgia, or you may find encouragement and understanding in a support group. Although support groups aren't for everyone, they can be good sources of information. Group members often know about the latest treatments and tend to share their own experiences. If you're interested, your doctor may be able to recommend a group in your area. 27 Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux, is a pain syndrome recognizable by patient history alone. The condition is characterized by pain often accompanied by a brief facial spasm or tic. Pain distribution is unilateral and follows the sensory distribution of cranial nerve V, typically radiating to the maxillary (V2) or mandibular (V3) area. At times, both distributions are affected. Physical examination eliminates alternative diagnoses. Signs of cranial nerve dysfunction or other neurologic abnormality exclude the diagnosis of idiopathic TN and suggest that pain may be secondary to a structural lesion. Pathophysiology: The mechanism of pain production remains controversial. One theory suggests that peripheral injury or disease of the trigeminal nerve increases afferent firing in the nerve; failure of central inhibitory mechanisms may be involved as well. Pain is perceived when nociceptive neurons in a trigeminal nucleus involve thalamic relay neurons. Aneurysms, tumors, chronic meningeal inflammation, or other lesions may irritate trigeminal nerve roots along the pons. An abnormal vascular course of the superior cerebellar artery is often cited as the cause. In most cases, no lesion is identified, and the etiology is labeled idiopathic by default. Uncommonly, an area of demyelination from multiple sclerosis may be the precipitant. Lesions of the entry zone of the trigeminal roots within the pons may cause a similar pain syndrome. Thus, although TN typically is caused by a dysfunction in the peripheral nervous system (the roots or trigeminal nerve itself), a lesion within the central nervous system may rarely cause similar problems. Infrequently, adjacent dental fillings composed of dissimilar metals may trigger attacks. Frequency: Internationally: TN is uncommon, with an estimated prevalence of 155 cases per million persons. Mortality/Morbidity: No mortality is associated with idiopathic TN, although secondary depression is common if a chronic pain syndrome evolves. In rare cases, pain may be so frequent that oral nutrition is impaired. In symptomatic or secondary TN, morbidity or mortality relates to the underlying cause of the pain syndrome. Sex: Male-to-female ratio is 2:3. Age: Development of trigeminal neuralgia in a young person suggests the possibility of multiple sclerosis. Idiopathic TN typically occurs in patients in the sixth decade of life, but it may occur at any age. Symptomatic or secondary TN tends to occur in younger patients. 27 Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux, is a pain syndrome recognizable by patient history alone.

07 Side Effects of Melatonin: Is Melatonin Addictive?

07 Side Effects of Melatonin: Is Melatonin Addictive? Subscribe To Get New Videos Daily: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi1zZ8_Q7yqKInXImLCLfXw Over the last two decades, melatonin — marketed as an all-natural sleep aid — has earned a spot in medicine cabinets across the country. Cheap, readily available, and considered safe by many, melatonin is often considered to be an all-natural way to help you catch some zzzs. But is melatonin really as safe as they say? And is it being used correctly? Here, we look into the dark side of melatonin and debunk some myths over the “harmless” supplement. What Is Melatonin? Melatonin is a hormone which is present in the body naturally, produced by the pineal gland in the brain It won’t kill you, but it’ll make your life pretty miserable.” However, this does not mean that melatonin makes you sleep. According to Dr. Oz: “Melatonin is a sleep and body clock regulator – NOT a sleep initiator. Melatonin works with your biological clock by telling your brain when it is time to sleep. Melatonin does not increase your sleep drive or need for sleep.” Uses Of Melatonin: Melatonin is known to be effective in correcting sleep-related and has been found to be effective in treating sleep disorders in people who have impaired vision. Side Effects Of Melatonin: The problem with melatonin lies in the lack of understanding about proper dosages. Because melatonin is is labelled a dietary supplement (rather than a drug), companies can sell supplements at any dosage they like, with varying amounts. Researchers have concluded that the correct dosage for melatonin falls between .3 and 1 mg, yet it’s standard for many sleep aids to contain as much as 10 times that amount. |Melatonin is a sleep and body clock regulator – NOT a sleep initiator.” This can result in some nasty side effects — as well as some more serious ones. Of the common side effects of melatonin, irritability, sleepiness, drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness and headaches are a few. Gastrointestinal Side Effects: Other side effects of melatonin include gastrointestinal issues such as diarrhea, abnormal feces, stomach pain, vomiting, nausea, cramping, increased appetite or altered tastes. Seizures: Research has shown that melatonin can lead to seizures especially in children suffering from neurological disorders severe in nature. Mood Changes: Another potential side effect of melatonin can be mood changes, including sadness and giddiness. Overdose of the melatonin pill can lead to hallucinations and paranoia as well. Bleeding: Bleeding is another possible side effect of melatonin. Those individuals who have disorders which may cause bleeding should be extremely careful along with those who are on pills which may have bleeding already as side effect, when taking this hormone pill. Cholesterol Increase: Another side effect of melatonin that has been noted is the possibility of an increase in blood pressure. Pregnancy-Related Side Effects: Melatonin side effects may also involve those which can hinder the process of pregnancy. Melatonin may interfere with other hormones which can cause issues during pregnancy or cause hindrances when trying to get pregnant. Not A Regular Sleep Aid: Although many see melatonin as a miracle cure for insomnia, it may actually do just the opposite, and promote insomnia over time. “Taking melatonin for an extended period of time your body may acclimate and re-adjust and produce less over time which will work against you,” says Michael Grandner, a sleep researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. You’re better off using melatonin rarely, for example, when readjusting to jet-lag, rather than to help you sleep — and never as a regular sleep aid.

TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia) is a pain that is described as among the most acute known to mankind. TN produces excruciating, lightning strikes of facial pain, typically near the nose, lips, eyes or ears. It is a disorder of the trigeminal nerve, which is the fifth and largest cranial nerve. TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia / tic douloureux) is a disorder of the fifth cranial (trigeminal) nerve that causes episodes of intense, stabbing, electric shock-like pain in the areas of the face where the branches of the nerve are distributed - lips, eyes, nose, scalp, forehead, upper jaw, and lower jaw. By many, it's called the "suicide disease". A less common form of the disorder called "Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia" may cause less intense, constant, dull burning or aching pain, sometimes with occasional electric shock-like stabs. Both forms of the disorder most often affect one side of the face, but some patients experience pain at different times on both sides. Onset of symptoms occurs most often after age 50, but cases are known in children and even infants. Something as simple and routine as brushing the teeth, putting on makeup or even a slight breeze can trigger an attack, resulting in sheer agony for the individual. Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is not fatal, but it is universally considered to be the most painful affliction known to medical practice. Initial treatment of TN is usually by means of anti-convulsant drugs, such as Tegretol or Neurontin. Some anti-depressant drugs also have significant pain relieving effects. Should medication be ineffective or if it produces undesirable side effects, neurosurgical procedures are available to relieve pressure on the nerve or to reduce nerve sensitivity. Some patients report having reduced or relieved pain by means of alternative medical therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic adjustment, self-hypnosis or meditation. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com/SandiW/TN4.html What is Trigeminal Neuralgia? Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also called tic douloureux, is a chronic pain condition that causes extreme, sporadic, sudden burning or shock-like face pain that lasts anywhere from a few seconds to as long as 2 minutes per episode. The intensity of pain can be physically and mentally incapacitating. TN pain is typically felt on one side of the jaw or cheek. Episodes can last for days, weeks, or months at a time and then disappear for months or years. In the days before an episode begins, some patients may experience a tingling or numbing sensation or a somewhat constant and aching pain. The attacks often worsen over time, with fewer and shorter pain-free periods before they recur. The intense flashes of pain can be triggered by vibration or contact with the cheek (such as when shaving, washing the face, or applying makeup), brushing teeth, eating, drinking, talking, or being exposed to the wind. TN occurs most often in people over age 50, but it can occur at any age, and is more common in women than in men. There is some evidence that the disorder runs in families, perhaps because of an inherited pattern of blood vessel formation. Although sometimes debilitating, the disorder is not life-threatening. The presumed cause of TN is a blood vessel pressing on the trigeminal nerve in the head as it exits the brainstem. TN may be part of the normal aging process but in some cases it is the associated with another disorder, such as multiple sclerosis or other disorders characterized by damage to the myelin sheath that covers certain nerves. Is there any treatment? Because there are a large number of conditions that can cause facial pain, TN can be difficult to diagnose. But finding the cause of the pain is important as the treatments for different types of pain may differ. Treatment options include medicines such as anticonvulsants and tricyclic antidepressants, surgery, and complementary approaches. Typical analgesics and opioids are not usually helpful in treating the sharp, recurring pain caused by TN. If medication fails to relieve pain or produces intolerable side effects such as excess fatigue, surgical treatment may be recommended. Several neurosurgical procedures are available. Some are done on an outpatient basis, while others are more complex and require hospitalization. Some patients choose to manage TN using complementary techniques, usually in combination with drug treatment. These techniques include acupuncture, biofeedback, vitamin therapy, nutritional therapy, and electrical stimulation of the nerves. What is the prognosis? The disorder is characterized by recurrences and remissions, and successive recurrences may incapacitate the patient. Due to the intensity of the pain, even the fear of an impending attack may prevent activity. Trigeminal neuralgia is not fatal. What research is being done? Within the NINDS research programs, trigeminal neuralgia is addressed primarily through studies associated with pain research. NINDS vigorously pursues a research program seeking new treatments for pain and nerve damage with the ultimate goal of reversing debilitating conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia. NINDS has notified research investigators that it is seeking grant applications both in basic and clinical pain research. An Alternate Strategy Instead of waiting for the pain to become intractable or the medications toxic, an individual with trigeminal neuralgia has the option to request early surgery. This has a number of potential advantages: • Avoid years of medication and intermittent pain • Avoid facing surgery when old or infirm • If the person has a vascular loop, early microvascular decompression will increase the possibility of a successful operation with decreased risk of recurrence (evidence suggests better outcomes and lower recurrence rate the shorter the interval between onset of symptoms and nerve decompression) How To Find Out If You Have a Vascular Loop The conventional MRI scans used to rule out the presence of a brain tumor or multiple sclerosis as a cause of a patients face pain are not adequate to visualize the trigeminal nerve or an associated blood vessel. Fortunately, the continued improvement in MRI neuro-imaging now makes it possible to visualize both. The technique, which is called 3-D volume acquisition, is performed with contrast injection and utilizes thin cuts (0.8mm), without gaps similar to what was developed for MRI angiography and venography. The trigeminal nerve is easily visualized in the axial plane when the MRI series is centered at the midpoint of the fourth ventricle. To ensure an adequate evaluation, the nerve should be seen on three adjacent cuts. Early studies indicate that when an offending vessel is present it will be detected 80% of the of the time. With continued imaging improvements this percentage will definitely increase. Click here for UCSD Trigeminal Neuralgia Sequence Parameters for Seimens and GE MR Scanners. Surgical Options: Non-Destructive Procedures The only non-destructive procedure which reliably relieves the symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia is Microvascular Decompression (MVD). This involves surgical exploration with the operating microscope and visualization of the junction where the Trigeminal nerve enters the base of the brain, followed by coagulation or moving and padding away any compressing blood vessels. The advantage is pain relief without numbness in the majority of patients, which usually lasts indefinitely. If the pain recurs after a MVD, which it does in 10-15% of patients, it can usually be controlled with low dose Tegretol® or Neurontin®. If the pain continues, it will require a repeat MVD or one of the destructive procedures. Surgical Options: Destructive Procedures There are multiple destructive procedures which are beneficial in the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia. The most common of which are glycerol injections, gamma knife radiation, electrocoagulation, and balloon compression. These procedures are all based on interrupting the pain by partial damage to Trigeminal nerve fibers. Generally the more numbness they produce, the longer they last. The specific advantages and disadvantages need to be discussed with the surgeon performing the procedure. These procedures are recommended for patients who have failed MVD or are not candidates for major surgery. Comments Treatment is always individualized. All of the options above should be considered in consultation with a neurosurgeon familiar in their use. Recommendations Based on the data currently available, and in an effort to maximize quality of life, we recommend the following: Patients with less than 10 year life expectancy Refer for destructive procedure if pain not controlled medically without significant side effects Patients with more than 10 but less than 20 year life expectancy Consider destructive procedure May abolish need for continued increasing medications Will make medical therapy easier even if fails Patients with more than 20 year life expectancy Perform thin cut MRI with 3-D Volume Acquisition If vessel present recommend MVD 25 ARTICLE SECTIONS From the Mayo Clinic. Trigeminal neuralgia http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/trigeminal-neuralgia/DS00446 Introduction Signs and symptoms Causes When to seek medical advice Screening and diagnosis Treatment Coping skills Introduction Imagine having a jab of lightning-like pain shoot through your face when you brush your teeth or put on makeup. Sound excruciating? If you have trigeminal neuralgia, attacks of such pain are frequent and can often seem unbearable. You may initially experience short, mild attacks, but trigeminal neuralgia can progress, causing longer, more frequent bouts of searing pain. These painful attacks can be spontaneous, but they may also be provoked by even mild stimulation of your face, including brushing your teeth, shaving or putting on makeup. The pain of trigeminal neuralgia may occur in a fairly small area of your face, or it may spread rapidly over a wider area. Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn't necessarily mean you're doomed to a life of pain. Doctors usually can effectively manage trigeminal neuralgia, either with medications or surgery. Signs and symptoms An attack of trigeminal neuralgia can last from a few seconds to about a minute. Some people have mild, occasional twinges of pain, while other people have frequent, severe, electric-shock-like pain. The condition tends to come and go. You may experience attacks of pain off and on all day, or even for days or weeks at a time. Then, you may experience no pain for a prolonged period of time. Remission is less common the longer you have trigeminal neuralgia. People who have experienced severe trigeminal neuralgia have described the pain as: Lightning-like or electric-shock-like Shooting Jabbing Like having live wires in your face Trigeminal neuralgia usually affects just one side of your face. The pain may affect just a portion of one side of your face or spread in a wider pattern. Rarely, trigeminal neuralgia can affect both sides of your face, but not at the same time. Causes Branches of the trigeminal nerve CLICK TO ENLARGE The condition is called trigeminal neuralgia because the painful facial areas are those served by one or more of the three branches of your trigeminal nerve. This large nerve originates deep inside your brain and carries sensation from your face to your brain. The pain of trigeminal neuralgia is due to a disturbance in the function of the trigeminal nerve. Trigeminal neuralgia is also known as tic douloureux. The cause of the pain usually is due to contact between a normal artery or vein and the trigeminal nerve at the base of your brain. This places pressure on the nerve as it enters your brain and causes the nerve to misfire. Physical nerve damage or stress may be the initial trigger for trigeminal neuralgia. After the trigeminal nerve leaves your brain and travels through your skull, it divides into three smaller branches, controlling sensation throughout your face: The first branch controls sensation in your eye, upper eyelid and forehead. The second branch controls sensation in your lower eyelid, cheek, nostril, upper lip and upper gum. The third branch controls sensations in your jaw, lower lip, lower gum and some of the muscles you use for chewing. You may feel pain in the area served by just one branch of the trigeminal nerve, or the pain may affect all branches on one side of your face. Besides compression from blood vessel contact, other less frequent sources of pain to the trigeminal nerve may include: Compression by a tumor Multiple sclerosis A stroke affecting the lower part of your brain, where the trigeminal nerve enters your central nervous system A variety of triggers, many subtle, may set off the pain. These triggers may include: Shaving Stroking your face Eating Drinking Brushing your teeth Talking Putting on makeup Encountering a breeze Smiling Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men. The disorder is more likely to occur in people who are older than 50. About 5 percent of people with trigeminal neuralgia have other family members with the disorder, which suggests a possible genetic cause in some cases. When to seek medical advice Some people mistake the pain of trigeminal neuralgia for a toothache or a headache. It's not uncommon for people to believe that their facial pain is dental-related, particularly when the pain seems to stem from the gumline or is located near a tooth. If you experience facial pain, particularly prolonged pain or pain that hasn't gone away with use of over-the-counter pain relievers, see your dentist or doctor. Screening and diagnosis If you go to your dentist, an examination of your mouth can reveal whether a problem with your teeth or gums is causing your pain. If you go to your doctor, he or she will want to ask about your medical history and have you describe your pain — how severe it is, what part of your face it affects, how long pain lasts and what seems to trigger episodes of pain. You'll also undergo a neurologic examination. During this examination, your doctor examines and touches parts of your face to try to determine exactly where the pain is occurring and — if it appears that you have trigeminal neuralgia — which branches of the trigeminal nerve may be affected. Your doctor may exclude other possible conditions based on your medical history, the examination, and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of your head. Treatment Medications are the usual initial treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. Medications are often effective in lessening or blocking the pain signals sent to your brain. A number of drugs are available. If you stop responding to a particular medication or experience too many side effects, switching to another medication may work for you. Medications Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol). Carbamazepine, an anticonvulsant drug, is the most common medication that doctors use to treat trigeminal neuralgia. In the early stages of the disease, carbamazepine controls pain for most people. However, the effectiveness of carbamazepine decreases over time. Side effects include dizziness, confusion, sleepiness and nausea. Baclofen. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant. Its effectiveness may increase when it's used in combination with carbamazepine or phenytoin. Side effects include confusion, nausea and drowsiness. Phenytoin (Dilantin, Phenytek). Phenytoin, another anticonvulsant medication, was the first medication used to treat trigeminal neuralgia. Side effects include gum enlargement, dizziness and drowsiness. Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal). Oxcarbazepine is another anticonvulsant medication and is similar to carbamazepine. Side effects include dizziness and double vision. Doctors may sometimes prescribe other medications, such as lamotrignine (Lamictal) or gabapentin (Neurontin). Some people with trigeminal neuralgia eventually stop responding to medications, or they experience unpleasant side effects. For those people, surgery, or a combination of surgery and medications, may be an option. Surgery The goal of a number of surgical procedures is to either damage or destroy the part of the trigeminal nerve that's the source of your pain. Because the success of these procedures depends on damaging the nerve, facial numbness of varying degree is a common side effect. These procedures involve: Alcohol injection. Alcohol injections under the skin of your face, where the branches of the trigeminal nerve leave the bones of your face, may offer temporary pain relief by numbing the areas for weeks or months. Because the pain relief isn't permanent, you may need repeated injections or a different procedure. Glycerol injection. This procedure is called percutaneous glycerol rhizotomy (PGR). "Percutaneous" means through the skin. Your doctor inserts a needle through your face and into an opening in the base of your skull. The needle is guided into the trigeminal cistern, a small sac of spinal fluid that surrounds the trigeminal nerve ganglion (the area where the trigeminal nerve divides into three branches) and part of its root. Images are made to confirm that the needle is in the proper location. After confirming the location, your doctor injects a small amount of sterile glycerol. After three or four hours, the glycerol damages the trigeminal nerve and blocks pain signals. Initially, PGR relieves pain in most people. However, some people have a recurrence of pain, and many experience facial numbness or tingling. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com Balloon compression. In a procedure called percutaneous balloon compression of the trigeminal nerve (PBCTN), your doctor inserts a hollow needle through your face and into an opening in the base of your skull. Then, a thin, flexible tube (catheter) with a balloon on the end is threaded through the needle. The balloon is inflated with enough pressure to damage the nerve and block pain signals. PBCTN successfully controls pain in most people, at least for a while. Most people undergoing PBCTN experience facial numbness of varying degrees, and more than half experience nerve damage resulting in a temporary or permanent weakness of the muscles used to chew. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com Electric current. A procedure called percutaneous stereotactic radiofrequency thermal rhizotomy (PSRTR) selectively destroys nerve fibers associated with pain. Your doctor threads a needle through your face and into an opening in your skull. Once in place, an electrode is threaded through the needle until it rests against the nerve root. An electric current is passed through the tip of the electrode until it's heated to the desired temperature. The heated tip damages the nerve fibers and creates an area of injury (lesion). If your pain isn't eliminated, your doctor may create additional lesions. PSRTR successfully controls pain in most people. Facial numbness is a common side effect of this type of treatment. The pain may return after a few years. Microvascular decompression (MVD). A procedure called microvascular decompression (MVD) doesn't damage or destroy part of the trigeminal nerve. Instead, MVD involves relocating or removing blood vessels that are in contact with the trigeminal root and separating the nerve root and blood vessels with a small pad. During MVD, your doctor makes an incision behind one ear. Then, through a small hole in your skull, part of your brain is lifted to expose the trigeminal nerve. If your doctor finds an artery in contact with the nerve root, he or she directs it away from the nerve and places a pad between the nerve and the artery. Doctors usually remove a vein that is found to be compressing the trigeminal nerve. MVD can successfully eliminate or reduce pain most of the time, but as with all other surgical procedures for trigeminal neuralgia, pain can recur in some people. http://www.MyTrigeminalNeuralgiaStory.com While MVD has a high success rate, it also carries risks. There are small chances of decreased hearing, facial weakness, facial numbness, double vision, and even a stroke or death. The risk of facial numbness is less with MVD than with procedures that involve damaging the trigeminal nerve. Severing the nerve. A procedure called partial sensory rhizotomy (PSR) involves cutting part of the trigeminal nerve at the base of your brain. Through an incision behind your ear, your doctor makes a quarter-sized hole in your skull to access the nerve. This procedure usually is helpful, but almost always causes facial numbness. And it's possible for pain to recur. If your doctor doesn't find an artery or vein in contact with the trigeminal nerve, he or she won't be able to perform an MVD, and a PSR may be done instead. Radiation. Gamma-knife radiosurgery (GKR) involves delivering a focused, high dose of radiation to the root of the trigeminal nerve. The radiation damages the trigeminal nerve and reduces or eliminates the pain. Relief isn't immediate and can take several weeks to begin. GKR is successful in eliminating pain more than half of the time. Sometimes the pain may recur. The procedure is painless and typically is done without anesthesia. Because this procedure is relatively new, the long-term risks of this type of radiation are not yet known. • Coping skills Living with trigeminal neuralgia can be difficult. The disorder may affect your interaction with friends and family, your productivity at work, and the overall quality of your life. You may find that talking to a counselor or therapist can help you cope with the effects of trigeminal neuralgia, or you may find encouragement and understanding in a support group. Although support groups aren't for everyone, they can be good sources of information. Group members often know about the latest treatments and tend to share their own experiences. If you're interested, your doctor may be able to recommend a group in your area. 27 Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux, is a pain syndrome recognizable by patient history alone. The condition is characterized by pain often accompanied by a brief facial spasm or tic. Pain distribution is unilateral and follows the sensory distribution of cranial nerve V, typically radiating to the maxillary (V2) or mandibular (V3) area. At times, both distributions are affected. Physical examination eliminates alternative diagnoses. Signs of cranial nerve dysfunction or other neurologic abnormality exclude the diagnosis of idiopathic TN and suggest that pain may be secondary to a structural lesion. Pathophysiology: The mechanism of pain production remains controversial. One theory suggests that peripheral injury or disease of the trigeminal nerve increases afferent firing in the nerve; failure of central inhibitory mechanisms may be involved as well. Pain is perceived when nociceptive neurons in a trigeminal nucleus involve thalamic relay neurons. Aneurysms, tumors, chronic meningeal inflammation, or other lesions may irritate trigeminal nerve roots along the pons. An abnormal vascular course of the superior cerebellar artery is often cited as the cause. In most cases, no lesion is identified, and the etiology is labeled idiopathic by default. Uncommonly, an area of demyelination from multiple sclerosis may be the precipitant. Lesions of the entry zone of the trigeminal roots within the pons may cause a similar pain syndrome. Thus, although TN typically is caused by a dysfunction in the peripheral nervous system (the roots or trigeminal nerve itself), a lesion within the central nervous system may rarely cause similar problems. Infrequently, adjacent dental fillings composed of dissimilar metals may trigger attacks. Frequency: Internationally: TN is uncommon, with an estimated prevalence of 155 cases per million persons. Mortality/Morbidity: No mortality is associated with idiopathic TN, although secondary depression is common if a chronic pain syndrome evolves. In rare cases, pain may be so frequent that oral nutrition is impaired. In symptomatic or secondary TN, morbidity or mortality relates to the underlying cause of the pain syndrome. Sex: Male-to-female ratio is 2:3. Age: Development of trigeminal neuralgia in a young person suggests the possibility of multiple sclerosis. Idiopathic TN typically occurs in patients in the sixth decade of life, but it may occur at any age. Symptomatic or secondary TN tends to occur in younger patients. 27 Background: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), also known as tic douloureux, is a pain syndrome recognizable by patient history alone.

To comment on the original video please visit Dr. Morse's channel at: robertmorsend Ryan – “I contact you regarding my uncle who's health has started to deteriorate the last few years. He's 56 years of age and has spent a lifetime on acids, mainly the SAD western diet and a big alcohol drinker, mainly lager/beer etc. Two years ago, he had what was 1st suspected to be cellulitis in his right leg whilst on holiday in Thailand. After flying home he was told he had DVT and was given medication. One year later he is back on holiday in Thailand where he spends most of his time drinking beer and eating acid foods. He was admitted to Hospital after collapsing, he had extreme low oxygen and after a chest x-ray was told he'd previously had a minor heart attack that he apparently didnt know about.”… “Creation and Duality” Adrienne – “why don't you contact Oprah to speak of Gods Herbs” Turquoise - “Do you believe that past use of pharmaceuticals and vaccines 'blocks' us on an etheric level as well as causes physical toxicity? Does using herbs & raw fruit diet detox these etheric & energetic blocks as well as detox us physically & emotionally? I believeclassical homeopathy (tautopathy) can detox these pharmaceutical energetic blocks, but with this method each drug/vaccine is detoxed individually which can take years! Hoping to heal on ALL levels :) Value your insight.” God Worlds BosRedSox – “I'm a 27 year old active male who is currently detoxing. Went a little crazy on the berries today! My question is regarding premature ejaculation. Everything else in this area appears to be healthy! I've heard you speak of the mind being a "computer" which is "programmed" and can be reprogrammed? It's something I have struggled with all of my adult life. I'm unsure if it's mental, physical, genetics, adrenals, nerves or what!?” Heather - I was fine then last October I started feeling really bad...like I was deying went to doc a few and all labs came back normal besides one doc says I have ebv and that could be causing my symptoms of chronic sore throat..fatigue.. Brain fog..no appetite ..feels like pressure in my temples. And hard lymp node on right side of neck.have psorasis and got psoratic autritist BC of it and the doc says there's nothing he can do I started taking ur adrenal.kidney& lymp any others I need to take? “Mimi – How do you tell the difference between a healing crisis and just feeling like crap from detoxing?”... Julie - A few years ago I was diagnosed with Patulous Eustachian Tube (also called Tuba aperta). this means my eustachian tube is open most of the time, which leads to hearing myself talk and breathe constantly, I can hear the tube close and open. its really bad during the winter months. Is there anything I can do about this? a doctor gave me a cortisone nose spray but that gave me several nosebleeds a day so I stopped using it. Jenn – “I was born with very dark brown eyes, but in my early 20’s, the area closest to my pupil dramatically lightened. I am wondering if you could give me some insight s to why caused this.”… Luke – “My friend has brain damage to her frontal, parietal & temporal lobes, back problem in her lower back, up her spine & her neck & shoulders. She gets pain in her knees, she has chronic migraines every day, she says she feels the migraine in her right eye specifically, says she always has a migraine or headache. She's diagnosed with ADHD, BPD, PTSD, Depression, Social Anxiety, Schizoid PD, Depersonalization Disorder & anorexia. She takes Apo-Gabapentin & Prozac for headaches & anxiety. What to do?” Sharon – “Love your videos, but your information on the number of cells in the human body is out of date.”… Alexander – “I've had asthma for 6 years. I'm on week 4 of fruits and herbs. Making progress. I'm at the point where I can either take one puff of corticosteroid (Dulera) daily plus a few minutes on an Albuterol nebulizer as needed. Or I can take 6 to 10 Albuterol inhalers per day. I know they both damage me in different ways, but what would you recommend I do? I'm currently doing the one steroid puff so that I don't suppress mucus into my lungs so much with the albuterol inhalers.” Kelli – “Upon waking this morning, I was telling my 4 yr old that he is so smart due to eating all the fruits he does that he can be anything he wants to be when he grows up but it would be great if he could do something where he's helping people and he directly said.... I can be just like Dr. Morse! Awwweee!! My question is, he has lost most of his 2 front teeth due to sucking at night. He never used a pacifier or bottle at night. Could it be low adrenals/nervous system going haywire while sleeping?”
