M.M.C.R.I. HEADACHE : HEADACHE (= Cephalalgia) “Diffuse pain in various parts of the head, not confined to the area of distribution of any nerve” DEFINITION (Source: Stedman's Pocket Medical Dictionary) HEADACHE : HEADACHE 90% of individuals have atleast one headache/yr! 40% of individuals suffer from severe disabling headache annually. 5% pts. presenting to the ER with headache are diagnosed to have a serious underlying neurological disorder. Headaches account for >8 million doctor visits/yr! Most people with a headache use nonprescription pain relievers to treat their symptoms. INCIDENCE What causes headache?? : What causes headache?? Norm. physiological response mediated by a healthy NS Damage/inapp. Activation of pain sensitive pathways of CNS/PNS HEADACHE WHAT ACHES? : WHAT ACHES? Scalp Middle meningeal artery Dural sinuses Falx cerebri Proximal segment of large pial arteries PAIN SENSITIVE STRUCTURES: WHAT DOESN’T ACHE? : WHAT DOESN’T ACHE? Ventricular ependyma Choroid plexus Pial veins and…. PAIN INSENSITIVE STRUCTURES: WHAT ABOUT BRAIN PARENCHYMA? : WHAT ABOUT BRAIN PARENCHYMA? MOST of the Brain Parenchyma is INSENSITIVE to pain. HOWEVER, in the region of the dorsal raphe in the MidBrain a site is sensitive to electrical stimulation. (Basis for central theory of migraine) TRANSMISSION OF PAIN? : TRANSMISSION OF PAIN? Sensory stimuli from head ? CNS Supratentorial structures in anterior & middle cranial fossa Posterior cranial fossa & Infratentorial structures TRIGEMINAL NERVE C1, C2, C3 (Cervical spinal n.) WHAT HAPPENS? : WHAT HAPPENS? Distension/traction/dilatation of intracranial or extracranial arteries. Traction/displacement of large i.c. veins/ their dural envelope. Compression/traction/inflam. of cranial & spinal n. Spasm/inflam/trauma to cranial & cervical muscles. Meningeal irritation & ? ICP. Other mechanisms (eg.: + of brainstem struc, ?endorphins). MECHANISMS OF HEADACHE ETIOPATHOGENESIS : ETIOPATHOGENESIS Central theory (Dorsal raphe) Vascular theory (of Wolffe) Neurogenic inflammation theory (of Dr. Michael Moskowitz) NEUROGENIC INFLAMMATORY THEORY : NEUROGENIC INFLAMMATORY THEORY Preventing neurogenic inflammation in the meninges at the periphery of the trigeminovascular system ? release of neuropeptides ? stim. of afferent nerve fibres Prevent headache pain HEADACHE : HEADACHE CLASSIFICATION Primary Secondary > 90% headaches Tension (muscular contraction) Vascular (migraine) Cluster headache < 10% headaches (Headaches due to other medical problems) Traction headaches Inflam. headaches CLASSIFICATION OF PRIMARY HEADACHE : CLASSIFICATION OF PRIMARY HEADACHE CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE : CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE 5. Headache associated with head trauma, including: 5.1 Acute post-traumatic headache 5.2 Chronic post-traumatic headache 6. Headache associated with vascular disorders, including: 6.3 Subarachnoid haemorrhage 7. Headache associated with non-vascular intracranial disorders, including: 7.1.1 Benign intracranial hypertension 7.3 Intracranial infection 7.6 Intracranial neoplasm CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE : CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE 8. Headache associated with substances or their withdrawal, including: 8.1.4 Acute alcohol induced headache 8.2.1 Chronic ergotamine induced headache 8.2.2 Chronic analgesics abuse headache 8.3.1 Alcohol withdrawal headache (hangover) 9. Headache associated with non-cephalic infection 10. Headache associated with metabolic disorder CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE : CLASSIFICATION OF SECONDARY HEADACHE 11. Headache or facial pain associated with disorder of cranium, neck, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, teeth, mouth or other facial or cranial structures, including: 11.2.1 Cervical spine 11.3.1 Acute glaucoma 11.5.1 Acute sinus headache 12. Cranial neuralgias, nerve trunk pain and deafferentation pain, including: 126.96.36.199 Herpes zoster 12.2 Trigeminal neuralgia 13. Headache not classifiable I’ll Be Back… : I’ll Be Back… APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT History, History, History (Headache diary) Site Onset Character Radiation Associated symptoms Timing Exacerbating & Relieving factors Severity State of health between attacks APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT Extra-cranial SITE Intra-cranial Vascular PNS, Ocular, Dental, Upper cervical vertebral Giant cell arteritis ? precise loc. Less sharply localized but still regionally distributed Vascular Ant. & Mid. Cranial fossa Posterior Cranial fossa Frontotemporal pain Occipitonuchal pain APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT ONSET Ruptured Aneurysm Cluster headaches Migraine Brain tumours/?ICP: Headaches that disturb sleep / early morning headaches. APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT ONSET Early Morning Headache on waking up & again at end of day is due to Maxillary Sinusitis (diurnal variation). Office headache: due to Frontal sinusitis. [Patient wakes up mostly without pain (due to overnight drainage ? develops pain after a few hrs that last through out the day] Vaccum headache: headache on waking up that may occur in Frontal sinusitis due to overnight drainage. APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT CHARACTER Dull aching pain: Sinusitis related Tension type: Tight “band like” pain Benign cranial pain: Jabbing, brief, sharp cephalic pain often multifocal (ice pick like) [BUT ///ar pain on face ? characteristic of neuralgic pain (lancellating pain)] Migraine: Throbbing w/ tight muscles around head, neck & shoulder girdle. Asso w/ aura mostly. APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT INTENSITY Most important aspect of pain from patient’s point of view. BUT it rarely has diagnostic importance! Can often be misleading. Since even a brain tumour need NOT present with severe/distinctive pain. Slide 40: MIGRAINE – C/F Slide 41: TENSION HEADACHE – C/F Slide 42: SINUSITIS – C/F Slide 43: OPTHALMIC CAUSES – C/F Slide 44: PSYCHOLOGICAL HEADACHE – C/F APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT ACUTE NEW-ONSET HEADACHE Meningitis Sub-arachnoid Hge Epidural/Subdural haematoma Glaucoma Purrulent sinusitis APPROACH TO THE PATIENT : APPROACH TO THE PATIENT CAUSES NOT TO BE MISSED!!! Intra-cranial tumours Meningitis Subarachnoid haemorrhage Temporal arteritis Primary angle closure glaucoma Idiopathic intracranial hypertension Subacute carbon monoxide poisoning HEADACHE : HEADACHE SUMMARY Headache is one symptom that may be the manifestation of a simple, benign problem like a tension headache or one of a life threatening fatal disease like a Berry aneurysm. Acute, new onset headache has a much more serious prognosis than other types of onsets. So a careful evaluation of the etiology of headache is very essential. Symptomatic treatment of headache must NOT precede evaluation of its cause. Slide 49: God Almighty Slide 50: Department of Otorhinolaryngology Professor & HOD Dr. Varadarajulu Professor Dr. K.
