It's well tolerated, it's used for generalized, impartial seizures. It's available both in pills that can be crushed or it's available in an oral formulation, so a liquid for small children. Dr. Steve Wolf: The major side effects is sedation. Patty: Right. Dr. Wolf: Sleepiness. It can cause a little bit of an increased appetite and weight gain, so you need to monitor that very closely. Though it's also useful for patients who are having trouble sleeping at night. It already helps to sort of increase the sleep control. Patty: And actually we use it a lot for people who are having difficulties sleeping. It's also used for pain, for neuropathic pain. Dr. Wolf: So it's a good medication Another option in our armory of people with difficult to control seizures but not one of your first line kind of drugs. Patty: So Neurontin or gabapentin, third or fourth line drug for control of generalized, impartial seizures. A big side effect is drowsiness. It's also used for pain and it's well tolerated for the most part.

How safe is gabapentin & its contraindications? - Dr. Vykunta Raju K N
 
01:33
Gabapentin is drug introduced in earlier days for treating epilepsy. But nowadays usually the usage of gabapentin is less common compared to other newer drugs. This is one of the safe drugs, usually safe to take. You use this drug whether is a problem with the liver or kidney or some other problem because this will not cause any side effects involved with the kidney and the liver and also they cause when they are taking any other medication because the drugs interaction is also less like if we are taking cancer medication, or diabetes sugar medication or hypertensive medication or if somebody is suffering from HIV or cancer also. So interaction with other medication is also less and also causing damage to other organs also for them. So this is one of the safest medicines available. As such there is no specific contraindication for gabapentin. As I told, it is one of the safest drug, but only if they are hypersensitive to this compound, then only it is contraindicated. Otherwise this is one of the safest drugs available for treating epilepsy.
What Is Phenobarbital? | Epilepsy
 
01:38
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502062-What-Is-Phenobarbital-Epilepsy Dr. Steve Wolf: Phenobarbital is one of our oldest anti-seizure medications that have been around. It's indicated for both seizure types. The major problem with it is sedation, sleepiness. That's why the newer medications have a lot less sleepiness and side effects and waking issues. Patty McGoldrick: Now it still is used a lot of times in infants, children who present with neonatal seizures, and that's one of the first medications that's given to them. It's also used for people who present in status, which is prolonged seizures, and who may be in the emergency room. Not necessarily as the first medication that's used for that, but somewhere down the line. Dr. Wolf: The problem is in the emergency room, when you use it, it can really knock you out, and put you to sleep. And of course, if you give too much of it, it actually can affect your respiration. Patty: Now, the other big issue with phenobarbital is that we've been using it for years to control seizures in newborns and in infants. And actually, the latest research has shown it can cause much more cognitive damage than we initially thought. So we're trying not to use that as rapidly as we did in the past. We use some of the newer medications. We try to get children off phenobarbital pretty quickly if they were using it. Dr. Wolf: There were studies in the 80's showing that it can affect hyperactivity in young children, as well as reading scores and attention scores. So again, this drug can have a lot of potential cerebral side effects. That's why it's nice about some of the newer medications that are out there that might have less cognitive effects. So it's important to discuss with the people taking care of you whether this is the right medication for you, and what are the other choices.

Can gabapentin be prescibed for Partial Seizures in children? - Dr. Vykunta Raju K N
 
01:25
Gabapentin is newer antiepileptic drugs. It can be used for treating epilepsy, especially partial epilepsy. It can be used in children also. But nowadays the antiepileptic drugs usage is less. Nowadays the more commonly is used for neuropathic pain. So it can be used for seizures, especially if there is any problem with the liver, kidney and the heart problem or if they are receiving medication for other disorders like cancer medications, BP medications, diabetic medications, heart medications because interaction is less common and causing injury to the other organs is also less. So it can be used for partial seizures, especially if they are refractive to the other drugs. As a first line of drugs, nowadays not suing many of them and have a better choice with antiepileptic drugs. It can be used to treat partial epilepsy if there is no response to other types of drugs available currently.

Seroquel Serious Side Effects
 
08:58
I was prescribed Seroquel for Anxiety as well as a possible mood disorder. I had HORRIBLE side effects from Seroquel. I gained over 10 pounds in a week, felt like I had the flu constantly, had horrible headaches, felt like my blood sugar was out of whack, super sleepy but couldn't sleep still, joint pain and swelling, and numbness with tingling in my feet. Then, I woke up to find my face swollen along with 3+ pitting edema in both legs. The Doctor had me stop the Seroquel instantly without weaning down and didn't have me on anything for 3.5 weeks. I felt crazier than I have ever felt in my entire life. I keep on fighting and I know that any of you going through any sort of mental illness can do so too!

Baclofen: What You Need To Know
 
07:16
Baclofen is a GABA-like drug that has been used for decades in the treatment of spasticity. It has muscle relaxant, anxiolytic, and sedative properties. Outside of its medical use for spasticity, it has been researched as a possible treatment for alcohol dependence. The drug is sometimes taken in non-medical settings because it can provide anxiety reduction, sedation, and some euphoria. It’s usually described as somewhat similar to phenibut in its effects.

Involuntary Muscle Jerks Shakes Twitches
 
04:54
This is a compilation of the various involuntary muscle movements in my neck, face, eyes, arms, legs, hands, feet I've been having for several months. These movements get worse when relaxed, for example at bedtime, but also appear periodically throughout the day. They also vary depending how I am sitting or laying down. MRI results were negative, neurologists and movement disorder specialist seems to think this is stress/anxiety related and was worsened by surgery I had in November 2012, where I had a temporary pin surgically inserted to repair a broken finger. Tried Clonidine and Gabapentin with no success. Took Ambien for 4 months to be able to fall and stay asleep but made me groggy and unable to think clearly. Currently only taking 15mg of Remeron at bedtime to help with sleep and anxiety. Thought it was worth posting in case anyone has experienced something similar or has any suggestions on possible diagnoses or treatments.

Epilepsy illnesses side effects other health conditions
 
10:00
We may have epilepsy, my child does too... but we are just as human as others. There are many answers and more to come. Cannot always blame epilepsy for everything, sometimes there is more tied in to the genes--such as my daughter. She has anxiety from my mother's side, ADHD from her biological father...so I just didn't get it when she was placed on an IEP in school---as for I was passing just fine, and on a much strong med... and my seizures weren't controlled. But we have to realize there is a reason for everything-and to know He gives us strength. My heightened time is prior that time of the month... I will have 10 more seizures than normal. So women out there... might want to log theirs. Blessings to you all.

What Is Zonegran? | Epilepsy
 
01:02
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502069-What-Is-Zonegran-Epilepsy Patty: Zonegran is another medication indicated for the treatment of epilepsy. It's been out for a number of years. It is generic. It has five different mechanisms of action so it covers a lot of bases. It comes in capsules that can be opened and sprinkled in food for kids who can't swallow pills yet. The only big side effects are really some minor cognitive issues and you can also get kidney stones from it, but it's rare. Dr. Steve Wolf: So Zonegran, zonisamide, is not in your first top three of medications to pick, this is for the more the difficult to control patients with epilepsy, those that have had problems on some of the other medications. But again, as Patty said, a great medication to think of when other medications are failing. A good option and again, it's nice because it's generic so it's actually pretty reasonably priced. Patty: So Zonegran for epilepsy control. Side effects are kidney stones, rarely, and some mild cognitive issues.

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.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - OCD Part 2
 
08:04
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Part 1 Dr. John Breeding, Ph.D. psychologist discusses what is termed obsessive compulsive disorder or OCD. Dr. Breeding discusses potential psychological causes of an obsession or a compulsion as well as how to discharge negative emotion and love oneself. Psychiatry often prescribes psychotic medications for obsessions and compulsions. Off label medication are often prescribed for this problem including mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, anxiety medications, antidepressants, etc. Common OCD medications include Paxil, Prozac, Luxox, Zoloft, Lexapro as well as a number of SSRI antidepressants. Other medications often prescribed but not necessarily approved for OCD by the FDA include, Neurontin, Lamictal, Zyprexas and Risperdal. All of these medications have undesireable side effects and do not address the underlying cause of the psychological disorder. None of these drugs are actual cures. Dr. Breeding discusses how to address obsessions and compulsions for a psychological model.

What Is Midazolam Nasal Spray? | Epilepsy
 
01:35
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502068-What-Is-Midazolam-Nasal-Spray-Epilepsy Midazolam, uh, name brand is Versed, is another rescue medication that's available for patients with intractable epilepsy. It's not FDA approved for this indication in the United States. It's mainly used for intravenous. But in Europe, they're using it, if someone's having a seizure, and it's a prolonged seizure, to help break the seizure from happening. And so what they do is they use the IV formulation. But they give it iii, which is in the corner of your mouth, or they give in inter-nasally. So the medication is drawn up into the syringe, and then shot into the nose or mouth. It's a great option for people who don't wanna use rectal valium, are Diastat. Or when you're out in public, and you're not able to do that. So it's quick, it's easy to use. Just squirt it in there, let it kick in. It'll kick in within, you know, 5 to 15 minutes, whether it goes up the nose or into the mouth. Very few side effects. The sedation thing is really not that bad. We're not worried about respiratorily depressing them with the dose that the Versed is. Biggest problem is there's been a shortage of it in the United States. And it's not FDA approved for this indication. But it is a great alternative, especially for teenagers and young adults. And for people who are in wheelchairs. Multiply handicapped in wheelchairs, where it's difficult to get them out of the wheelchair to give the rectal Valium or the Diastat. So if you're looking for a rescue medication, and Diastat, which is a rectal suppository, is really not what you wanna use in a public place. Speak to your practitioners and see if this is a good option for you to use. And let them teach you how to use it.

What Is Topamax? | Epilepsy
 
01:31
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502063-What-Is-Topamax-Epilepsy Topamax or Topiramate is one of the medications used to control epilepsy. Its big side effect is that it can decrease appetite, some people think that it can cause some cognitive dulling or some word finding issues, but it hasn't been that much our experience. You know, nickname they give it is Dopamax, uh, and it's word finding difficulties, you can't find the word or such, so this has been certainly described, and it seems like older people are more sensitive to it than children are. There's a risk of kidney stones, um, a risk of glaucoma and blurry vision, so if you experience some blurry vision with it you need to get checked out and make sure that's okay, and also in some younger children, they don't sweat on it, which can be a problem in the summer. It's also used for migraines, to prevent migraines, so it's pretty commonly used. It also gives some side effects of tingling in your fingers and toes, which is dose related and goes away by itself. It's one of the new medications that we use in children and small children and in infants because it has some neuroprotective qualities, so it prevents seizures as well as stopping the seizures that are currently occurring. So it's important if you're on this medication to describe to the people taking care of you whether you are experiencing some difficulties finding words, if you find confusion, you're losing your car keys all the time, something like that, because that could be a side effect of the medication. That as well as the numbness and tingling and again, it's a good medication to use in neonates and newborn babies to prevent and control their seizures.

What Is Lamictal? | Epilepsy
 
01:56
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502059-What-Is-Lamictal-Epilepsy Lamictal or Lamotrigine is another great medication that's used to control epilepsy. It's been out for a number of years. In fact it is now available in a generic formalization but it's also available in a extended release and in a o d t, which is a oral disintegrating tablet. So it's a pill you can place on your tongue. It's great for little kids and it just dissolves. It's another sodium channel drug which is interesting. It's good for both partial complex seizures as well as generalized seizures. It also has a FDA approval for bipolar disorder as well. And it's really well tolerated. Very few side effects. The big side effect and the big black box warning with Lamotrigine is that you can develop a bad rash from it. It's called a Stevens Johnson reaction. So what happens is if you start the dose abruptly or you try to treat it too quickly and raise the dose to quickly, or if you use in combination with other medications. You can develop this rash that's sort of a red raised rash. Usually on the trunk and the chest. It gets worse, it can spread to the mouth. If that happens it's something that needs to get treated in the hospital with steroids, but usually you can avoid that happening at by slowly increasing the dose, by telling the patients about the possibility of this rash developing. And if the rash develops you hold the medication and give them benadryl. But the rash shouldn't stop you from thinking about using this medication. Very few people get the rash. The rash is usually easily manageable, because it's such a great medication with few cognitive side effects. No weight gain. Only rarely have people complained about insomnia with lymictal. But in overall it's a great medication. It works well and it's used for a bunch of different seizure types. Works on sodium channels. Well tolerated and it's also another one that can be used in pregnancy at lower doses not at higher doses.

What Is Trileptal? | Epilepsy
 
01:46
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502066-What-Is-Trileptal-Epilepsy A: Trileptal, otherwise known as oxcarbazepine is one of the newer anti-seizure medications. It's based off an old medication, carbamazepine or Tegretol, as you probably heard in the past. It's another fast sodium channel drug and very good for seizures with partial-complex seizures. B: Seizures that start in one area of the brain and spread. It's well tolerated with fewer side effects than Tegretol or Carbatrol, which it's derived from. The biggest issue with that, the biggest side effect is, you can get some drowsiness when you start taking it. That usually goes away within a week or so. B: You start the dose slowly and gradually increase it so there are fewer side effects. There is a risk of an allergic reaction, as there is with any medication. This presents, usually, as a red rash all over the trunk and chest. If that happens, just stop the medication. Take Benadryl, and then, slowly increase it again.There is the most sodium issues, but more in adults than in children. A: It's also called an enzyme inducer. You have to watch what medications you mix this with, because it could affect how the other medications perform. When you start the medication, you might have to increase the dose after a few weeks, to adjust for how the liver is metabolizing it. It's a medication that you need to watch what you're using it with, and watch those rare side affects. B: It can also decrease the efficacy of birth control pills. You need to be careful if you're on birth control pills, that you use some other means of contraception. A: Trileptal or oxcarbazepine is a first line indicated drug, very good for partial-complex seizures, not to be used in generalized epilepsy, with very few side effects and very well tolerated.

Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502070-What-Is-Zarontin-Epilepsy Zarontin or otherwise known as Ethosuximide is an anti-epileptic, an old one, that's used for abson seizures. So those are those generalized ones where I stare and zone and don't respond. And it's one of the older medications that have been used to treat this very effectively. So there was a study done a few years ago that compared a bunch of different medications for the treatment of abson seizures and actually this is the one that most people used and was the most efficacious. The biggest side effect with Zarontin is that it can upset your stomach. So some kids we give Tums when they are taking the medication, we make sure that they take the dose after they eat. It's available liquid and it's available in pills for those kids who can swallow pills. So it's a great medication, good for controlling abson seizures, those staring and zoning out episodes. Again the major side effect issue is the stomach problems. If you take it with food it's pretty well tolerated. There is always a small risk of a weight gain. But if they get too much of the medication they can get tired and fatigued. But again a good choice, first line choice for patients with abson seizures.

Why Do Seniors Get Shingles
 
07:57
Go To http://www.InsuredMeds.com for FREE Quotes & Info Why Do Seniors Get Shingles? One Out Six Seniors Will Get it !! Shingles Overview Almost 1 out of every 3 people in the United States will develop shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, in their lifetime. There are an estimated 1 million cases of shingles each year in this country. Anyone who has recovered from chickenpox may develop shingles; even children can get shingles. However the risk of shingles increases as you get older. About half of all cases occur in men and women 60 years old or older.Some people have a greater risk of getting shingles. This includes people who • have medical conditions that keep their immune systems from working properly, such as certain cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and • receive immunosuppressive drugs, such as steroids and drugs that are given after organ transplantation. People who develop shingles typically have only one episode in their lifetime. However, a person can have a second or even a third episode. What Is Shingles? Shingles, also known as zoster or herpes zoster, is a painful skin rash caused by the varicella zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. If you’ve had chickenpox, you are at risk of getting shingles. • One out of every three people 60 years old or older will get shingles. • One out of six people older than 60 years who get shingles will have severe pain. The pain can last for months or even years. • The most common complication of shingles is severe pain where the shingles rash was. This pain can be debilitating. There is no treatment or cure from this pain. As people get older, they are more likely to develop long-term pain as a complication of shingles and the pain is likely to be more severe. • Shingles may also lead to serious complications involving the eye. Very rarely, shingles can also lead to pneumonia, hearing problems, blindness, brain inflammation (encephalitis), or death. How To Protect Yourself Adults 60 years old or older should talk to their healthcare professional about getting a one-time dose of the shingles vaccine. • The shingles vaccine can reduce your risk of shingles and the longterm pain it can cause. • Persons who have already had shingles or who have a chronic medical condition can receive the shingles vaccine. • In a clinical trial involving thousands of adults 60 years old or older, the vaccine reduced the risk of shingles by about half. Even if the shingles vaccine doesn’t prevent you from getting shingles, it can still reduce the chance of having long-term pain. Talk with your healthcare professional for more information and to find out if the shingles vaccine is right for you. Is Shingles Vaccine Safe? The shingles vaccine is a safe way to protect your health. • Vaccines are tested and monitored. The shingles vaccine went through years of testing before being licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and FDA continue to monitor vaccines after they are licensed. • Vaccine side effects are usually mild and temporary. In most cases, shingles vaccine causes no serious side effects. Some people experience mild reactions that last up to a few days, such as headache or redness, soreness, swelling, or itching where the shot was given. • Vaccines are safe for most people. The shingles vaccine is safe for you unless you are pregnant, have a weakened immune system, or have allergies to certain components of the vaccine. It is safe for people taking most prescription medications to get this vaccine, but ask your healthcare professional if you have any questions. Where To Get Vaccinated Getting vaccinated against shingles and other diseases can be easier than you think. Talk to your healthcare professional at your next visit about what vaccines are right for you. If your healthcare professional does not offer the vaccines you need, ask for a referral so you can get the vaccines elsewhere. Adults can get vaccines at doctors’ offices, pharmacies, workplaces, community health clinics, and health departments. To find a place to get a vaccine near you, go to http://vaccine.healthmap.org. Most private health insurance plans cover recommended vaccines. Check with your insurance provider for details and for a list of vaccine providers. Medicare Part D plans cover shingles vaccine, but there may be costs to you depending on your specific plan. If you do not have health insurance, visit www.InsuredMeds.com to learn more about health insurance options. Don’t Wait. Vaccinate! Talk with your healthcare professional to make sure you are up-to-date with the vaccines recommended for you.

The Abduction of Anastasia Adams
 
07:36
On February 17, 2017 my sister Anastasia Adams was abducted by a local Northern Virginia hospital (IFMC). I used to think all the talk about "murder boards" in hospitals was a fallacy. However based on recent family events sadly they are true. Currently there is not a law that prevents hospitals from seeking guardianship as a means to override a patients rights to dispute discharge or treatment decisions. While there are specific instances where taking guardianship of a patient is not only advisable but is absolutely necessary when life is threatened, such as in the case of minors who need a life saving treatment but the parents refuse to allow it due to personal values or religious beliefs; however even those instances should be few and far between. Instances like those that have happened to our family the last few weeks, where a parent, family member who holds a legally executed power of attorney and stands 'in loco parentis' for an incapacitated family member can have their powers summarily and arbitrarily suspended or terminated because they disagree with a hospitals decision not to treat a condition because a doctor perceives the patient has no quality of life because they suffer from a brain injury and feels the person "would not want to live that way" should never happen! Quality of life is something that cannot possibly be known or measured with the limited and superficial contact that occurs in a hospital setting and is something best left to the patient and those closest to them. To have strangers come in and forcibly tear you from your loved ones, to abduct your person, because that is exactly what this is - an abduction - is terrifying for a person with a brain injury and other such patients. It is terrifying for an incapacitated person who has relied heavily on and whose life, happiness and well-being has depended on a family member that it is so inextricably intertwined it is impossible to separate one existence from the other without creating great psychological and emotional harm and trauma. I can say this because I have had to watch my sister whimper and cry out in fear since guardianship of her was awarded to Inova Fairfax Hospital appointed guardians. I have had to watch the expression of fear on her face while being told lawyers would now be her guardians and that I no longer had control over where she lived, who would be caring for her, what medications she could or could not be given, or treatments she would or would receive. I did not and could not tell her these same two lawyers also had the authority to place her in clinical trials, and had the authority to dispose of her remains how they saw fit. When Inova Fairfax Hospital appointed guardians removed her from the hospital without notifying a single family member I had to watch the expression on sadness and bewilderment at seemingly having been abandoned when I walked in six hours later because it took our Virgnia State Delegate making calls to locate her because Inova had ordered their nursing staff to not give me any health information, just as they chosen to ignore my power of attorney before we went to court. I have had to watch her being over medicated and suffering while her guardians were missing in action because they signed papers to have her sent to a substandard nursing facility and then went out of town for several days. I have had to physically clamp off my sisters feeding tube to prevent her from being given three sedating medications directly after giving her morphine because a nurse said she could not give my sister her regular medications when she would normally get them because their “protocol” only allowed them to give her medication at 9:00am, 1:00pm, and 5:00pm. Which means she was receiving a massive dose of 600mg of Neurontin, 2mg of Klonopin, and 10mg of Ambien on top of morphine in an 8 hour period! Now maybe it’s just me, but you do not administer those medications, at those doses to a 5’2” 108lb female unless you are trying to put her into a coma or kill her. Stand with our family if you believe this is egregious and sign our petition to not only stop Inova Fairfax Hospital from killing or intentionally putting our sister in danger and to STEP ASIDE and let Anastasia's family care for her as they always have done; but to have legislation put in place to prevent this from every happening to anyone else's child or loved one every again!!

PHARMAGEDDON - Health
 
57:45
Today's Alternative News Channel - PHARMAGEDDON Big Pharma is America’s new mafia whose chemical warfare on humanity dwarfs the number of victims killed by all the world wars and acts of terrorism combined. While drug companies profit billions, people are dying by the millions. It makes you wonder if Pharmageddon is upon us with the next set of mandatory vaccinations planned by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for the profit of drug companies. THERE IS A WAR RAGING FOR CONTROL OF YOUR BLOODSTREAM AND IT IS LED BY THE FDA, CDC, WHO, AND BIG PHARMA, AND IT LOOKS AS IF THEY ARE WINNING. Over 70% of Americans are on some form of pharmaceutical drug that often brings negative side-effects, including death. Iatrogenic death, or “death by doctor”, is considered the third leading cause of death in America, conservatively speaking. Some experts interpret the data to read iatrogenic death as the number one cause of death, and they have a great deal of evidence to back up the claim. These statistics suggest that we should change the name “health industry” to “illness industry.” Conservative estimates suggest that America spends about 20% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on health costs, about $3.35 trillion this year, which works out to $10,345 for every man, woman and child. Hospitals account for about 32%, doctors for 20%, and prescription drugs 10%. Spending on prescription drugs in the U.S. rose to a record $425 billion in 2016. The vaccine business alone is currently a $30 billion per year industry and the World Health Organization has urged increased vaccines, projecting that it will become a $100 billion per year industry by 2025. It is evident that the federal CDC and their business partners need the public to “be okay” with the current 69 doses of recommended childhood vaccines, plus adherence for an additional 100 plus doses of vaccines recommended by the CDC’s new adult schedule. Folks, they want us to inject our families with the additional 271 vaccines that are in the development pipeline. But nowhere on the CDC’s web site can you find a disclosure that the agency is a profit partner with the vaccine makers for whom it is supposed to be providing federal safety oversight. There are 57 granted U.S. patents with the CDC listed as an assignee. Some of the vaccine patents include: Flu, Rotavirus, Hepatitis A, HIV, Anthrax, Rabies, Dengue fever, West Nile virus, Group A Strep, Pneumococcal disease, Meningococcal disease, RSV, Gastroenteritis, Japanese encephalitis, SARS, Rift Valley Fever, and chlamydophila pneumoniae, flavivirus infection, human rhinovirus, adjuvants, Canarypox virus, Fowlpox virus, Sealpox virus, and dog flu.

Aaron Has Gallbladder Surgery Part 1 - Pre-Operation
 
05:08
Aaron developed a gallstone because of his inactivity both during and after the coma, because he couldn't walk at first. Here, he is groggy from being on IV Demerol, Benadryl, and Neurontin. He was admitted to the Hospital 3 days earlier, but because he had fallen on his side that morning, the surgeon wanted to make sure that the pain he was feeling was really a result of having a 3 1/2 centimeter gallstone, and not from the fall. He wanted to take that precaution because Aaron had scar tissue from previous surgeries, so he had a greater risk of not being eligible for the laproscopic surgery normally performed. He would have to be opened up like a normal major surgery. However, when Aaron returned to the hospital, complaining of vomiting and severe pain around where the galllbladder was located, they discovered he had gone into renal failure in just the last 3 days. The surgeon concluded the gallstone had to be removed. Click for Part 2 -Operating Room Area - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3pYUek161I

Treating Epilepsy
 
01:55
(KUTV) Treating epilepsy can sometimes be a tricky thing. Most patients take medications, which can sometimes come with side effects.At Intermountain Medical Center, doctors are taking a different approach to help people out. For the last few days Ron Yates has been at Intermountain Medical Center. He is hooked up to monitors and being watched around the clock as doctors wait for him to have a seizure.Ron has lived with seizures for many years, he has tried to hide it from his family and friends.Ron told us medications aren't working, so doctors are now trying to decide if he could benefit from other treatment options.Doctor Tawnya Constatnino is medical director of the Intermountain Medical Centers Epilepsy Clinic. She says traditionally medication is used to control epilepsy, but those medications can have side effects..The good news, according to Dr. Constatino, is there are more treatment options available. There is the Vagal Nerve Stimulator and surgery is also an option.Mary Nickles has more on the story.(Copyright 2013 Sinclair Broadcasting Group)

What Is Banzel? | Epilepsy
 
01:15
Watch more Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/502049-What-Is-Banzel-Epilepsy Banzel otherwise known as Rufinamide is one of the newer anti-seizure medications. It’s really indicated for children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome is one of the more difficult to control epilepsies with multiple seizure types. These are kids who have drop seizures, abson seizures, as well as generalized tonic colonic seizures and this is one of those newer medications. It’s a newer medication it’s used again for Lennox-Gastaut and difficult to treat seizures. It can be used twice a day up to three times a day. You start a lower dose and gradually push it up. The biggest side effects are stomach upset, they can get drowsy on it. And what people need to keep in mind is that you need to push through the side effects and get to a point to where you can stop the seizures, and then maybe slowly cut down on the dose to cut down on the side effects. So it’s important to speak to the people who are taking care of you, if this is a good medication for you or your child. Go over the risks and benefits of the medication, make sure you are the right seizure type for this anti-epiletic. And make sure your doctors push it to the maximum dose, because if they don’t go high enough we might not get good control.

Check out my website for a FREE cookbook on the ketogenic diet, which is helpful in treating epilepsy - https://getfitandhealthyathome.com/free-keto-cookbook-bacon-and-butter/ You can find my book on Amazon, Seizure Free Addressing the Causes of Seizures Naturally. The side effects of tegretol will be different for everyone. Tegretol was the one of the first anticonvulsants that I was put on during my teenage years. The side effects of tegretol were subtle to me. I didn't notice how much slower I became or how much drowsier I was compared to other people my age because the doctors increased my dosage so slowly. The side effects of tegretol can range from depression to weight gain or drowsiness. I didn't experience weight gain, but I did experience the side effects of tegretol that include depression and drowsiness. Your experience will be different and based on how healthy your body is functioning, you may or may not experience these side effects of tegretol. Tegretol's side effects can be countered by a healthier lifestyle so that there isn't so much stress and strain on the body as you put more toxins in it. You can eliminate some of these toxins through a few clay bath detoxes, a change of diet and exercise. This will help your body in dealing with tegretol's side effects. 0:01 side effects of tegretol video begins 0:20 My experience with the side effects of tegretol 0:40 Learn more about the side effects of tegretol on my blog and through my book

05:32
Christopher Pittman, was convicted by a South Carolina jury in 2005 of murdering his grandparents when he was 12 years of age and involuntarily intoxicated on Zoloft, an anti-depressant prescribed for him after he had attempted suicide. Judge Daniel Pieper, who had previously denied a defense motion to have the case heard in Family Court, where it clearly belonged, sentenced the young boy to 30 years in an adult prison. Appeals are ongoing.

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.
