  • OnabotulinumtoxinA as a Treatment for Hemiplegic Migraine Rochester, MN

    Hemiplegic migraine is a rare subtype of migraine with aura, with symptoms affecting vision, speech and language, hearing, and sensory and motor disturbances. Muscle weakness and hemiplegia are defining characteristics of hemiplegic migraines. Compared to patients with typical migraine with aura, patients with hemiplegic migraine tend to have more prolonged aura symptoms. In some cases, reversible unilateral weakness may last days to weeks. The primary objective of this project is to evaluate the response of hemiplegic migraine patients evaluated at Mayo Clinic to onabotulinumtoxinA treatments.

  • Metformin for the Prevention of Episodic Migraine (MPEM) Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    Migraine is the third most prevalent disease in the world. Preventive treatment is indicated in about 40% of individuals with episodic migraine. Although 4 treatments are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for prevention of episodic migraine, none were designed to prevent migraine, efficacy is modest, and all have significant adverse-event profiles. As a result, less than 1/3 of migraine sufferers with who are candidates for prevention receive drug treatment and of those who are treated, more than 85% have discontinued the preventive drug within one year. Migraine pain is associated with the activation and sensitization of specific ...

  • Verapamil vs. Sertraline for Vestibular Migraine & Chronic Subjective Dizziness Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ; Rochester, MN

    Chronic dizziness and recurrent vertigo are frequent complaints in primary and specialty medical care settings. Two common causes of these symptoms are vestibular migraine (VM) and chronic subjective dizziness (CSD), which may be seen in up to 25% of patients examined in tertiary neurotology centers. However, VM and CSD are relatively new diagnoses that have not yet been validated. Furthermore, recent research found that they co-exist 30% of the time with overlap in several features. From a clinical standpoint, this makes it difficult to diagnose and treat them well. From a research standpoint, it confounds subject selection for mechanistic investigations.

    The ...

  • Understanding Post-Traumatic Headache: Forward Translation of a Posttraumatic Headache Animal Model to Posttraumatic Headache in the Human Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    Headache is the most commonly reported symptom after trauma to the head. Although posttraumatic headache (PTH) shares some clinical characteristics with primary headache disorders, such as migraine, there are many unique features including head trauma and the exacerbation of headache with physical and cognitive stressors. The purpose of this study is to determine if subjects who have recently sustained a mild TBI and have PTH will have lower pain thresholds (i.e. hyperalgesia) and greater allodynia compared to healthy controls. The study will also determine if exposure to a bright light stressor will exacerbate hyperalgesia in subjects with mild TBI and PTH ...
