Headache & other craniofacial pains
-General considerations-
Headache encompass all aches & pains located in the
head but in practice its application is restricted to
discomfort in the region of the cranial vault

How to approach?
Quality of pain
Intensity of the pain
Location of the pain
Mode of onset
Relationship of headache to certain biologic events & also to
certain precipitating / relieving factors
Tightness, aching, pressure, bursting, sharpness, stabbing
Pulsatile/throbbing waxing & waning of the headache
without any relation of the pulse
Authentic pulsatile throobing migraine
Intensity of pain
Severe migrain headahe seldom allows to perform the
days work
The most intense cranial pains associated with meningitis
& subarachnoid hemorrhage
Migraine unilateral, associated with nausea, sensitivity to light,
sound, smells
Lesions of paranasal sinuses, teeth, eyes, upper cervical vert
less sharply localized pain, but still one that is referred to a
certain region
Lesions in the posterior fossa pain in the occipitonuchal region,
usually are homolateral if the lesion is one sided
Supreatentorial lesion frontotemporal pain
Glaucoma, sinusitis, thrombosis of vertebral/basilar artery,
pressure on the tentorium, ICP > frontal pain
Ear pain ear disease, throat, cervical muscles, spine, structure
on posterior fossa
Periorbital/supraorbital pain dissection cervical portion of int
carotid artery

orbitotemporal pain, hour/two after falling
asleep/predictable time during the day, recurring
nightly/daily for a period of several weeks months
(30-45 min)

Admit to the hospital, discontinue all ergot & narcotic medication
Administer IV hydration, corticosteroids, one of the serotonin
agonist medications/dihydroergotamine & lidocaine IV infusion
Cause & pathogenesis of migraine
Underlying genetic factors

Distention & excessive pulsation of branches of the external
carotid artery (Harold Wolff)
Regional reduction in cerebral circulation spreading forward
from the occipital region during the period when neurologic
symptoms appear (Olsen & colleagues)
Dilatation of the superior temporal artery on the side of the
migraine during the headache period; frequently a reduction in
posterior cortical blood flow during auras, similarly during aura
The trigeminovascular complexs pathogenesis
Innervation both extracranial & intracranial vessels by
small unmyelinated fibers of trigeminal nerve that subserve
both pain & autonomic function
Activation of these fibers
Releases substance P, calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP),
other peptides to vessel wall
Sensitize the trigeminal system
pulsatility of cranial vessels
Permeability > inflammatory response
5-HT/serotonin humoral mediator in the neural &
vascular component of migraine headache
Aspirin, acetaminophen, NSAID
Codeine / oxycodeine; usually combined with
aspirin/acetaminophen limited periods
Combination of aspirin/acetaminophen, caffeine &

Menjelaskan vertigo
Anatomic & physiologic consideration
Dizziness & vertigo
Along with headache, back pain, & fatigue
Dizziness a number of different sensory experiences (a
feeling of rotation or whirling as well as nonrotatory
swaying, weakness, faintness, light headedness,
4 categories
Vertigo a physical sensation of motion of self or the
Near syncope sensation of faintness
Disequilibrium disorder imbalance of stance or gait
Ill defined light headedness, accompanies anxiety
Approach to the patient with vertigo
Spontaneous vertigo
Single prolonged episode
Vestibular neuronitis
Labyrinthine concussions
Lateral medullary / cerebellar infarction
Recurrent episodes
Meniere disease
Perilymph fistula
Posterior circulation ischemia
Positional vertigo
Clinical characteristics of vertigo
Statement that objects in the environment have spun
around/moved rhythmically in one direction/that a sensation of
whirling of the had & body
Up & down movement of the body, usually the head
Patient may compare the feeling to that imparted by the pitch
& roll of a ship
Floor or wall may seem to tilt/to sink/rise up
In walking the patient may have had sensation of leaning/
being pulled to the ground/to one side or another (static tilt)
Being drawn by strong magnet
Oscillopsia illusionary movement of the environment
should be interpreted as vertigo (due to nystagmus)
An aggravation of symptoms by turning over in bed or
closing his eyes, a sense of imbalance when making a quick
turn on foot/in car
Abruptness & severity virtually throw the patient to the
Mildest form vertigo+nausea, vomitting, palor,
perspiration, some difficulty with walking
Forced to lie down, realized that one position (one side
with the eyes closed) reduced vertigo
Meniere disease & other forms of labyrinthine vertigo
Meniere disease recurrent attacks of vertigo + fluctuating
tinnitus & deafness
Labyrinthine disease most common cause of true vertigo

Men & women equally; 5th decade of life; hereditary form

& sporadic

Endolymph volume > distention of the endolymphatic system
(endolympathic hydrops)
Ruptures of the membranous labyrinth
Dumping of potassium containing endolymph into perilymph

Unmistakably whirling/rotational
Cannot stand/walk (severe)
Nausea & vomitting, low pitched tinnitus, feeling fullness in
ear, diminution in hearing
Nystagmus is present during acute attack horizontal in
Patient prefers to lie with the faulty ear uppermost
Recur several times weekly for many weeks on end, may
be remissions of several years duration
Symptoms on anxiety
Sudden, violent falling attacks (otolithic catastrophe)
Little evidence deformation of the otolothic membrane of the
utricle & saccule
Sensation of being pushed/knocked to the ground without
May be sudden movement/tilt of the environment before the fall
Hearing loss
May be the 1st attack of vertigo, but may appear later
Episodic deafness without vertigo (cochlear meniere syndrome)
Rest in bed (most effective)
antihistaminic agents cyclizine (Marezine), meclizine
(Bonine, Antivert), or transdermal scopolamine are useful in
the more protracted cases

trimethobenzamide 200-mg suppositories nausea &
low-salt diet in combination with ammonium chloride or
potassium and diuretics
dehydrating agents such as oral glycerol

Surgical means
Destruction of the labyrinth
Only in patient with strictly UNILATERAL diseas
Endolympathic-subarachnoid shunt
Selective destruction of the vestibule by cryogenic probe
Decompression of the eight cranial nerve
Separating it from an adjacent vessel
Benign positional vertigo
Paroxysmal vertigo & nystagmus that occur only with the
assumption of certain positions of the head
More frequent than meniere

Vertigo started when lying down/rolling over in bed,

bending over, straightening up, tilting the head backward
Began in the middle of the night/early morning,
presumably while shifting position during sleep & rapidly
making one ear dependent/rolling over to get out of bed
Last for less than a minute, but these may recur periodically
for several days/for many months (rarely years)
As the rule examination discloses no abnormalities of
hearing/other identifiable lesions in the ear/elsewhere
Vertigo accompanied ny oscillopsia & nystagmus with the
rapid component away from the affected ear
Nystagmus is predominantly torsional & may have additional
vertical component in the eye opposite the affected ear
Several days/weeks after cerebral trauma
Viral neurolabyrinthitis
Meniere disease, types with vertebrobasilar stroke, trauma,
posterior fossa tumors + positional change that induce vertigo &

Cupulolithiasis (pathophysiology)
Otolithic crystal that detached attached themselves to the cupula
of the posterior semicircular canal
free-floating clot in the endolymph of the canal (canalolithiasis)
gravitates to the most dependant part of the canal during changes in
the position of the head
90% posterior semicircular canal
10% lateral canal
Diagnosis (Dix-Hallpike maneuver)
Dix-Hallpike maneuver to elicit benign positional vertigo
(originating in the right ear). The maneuver begins with the
patient seated and the head turned to one side at 45 degrees
which aligns the right posterior semicircular canal with the
sagittal plane of the head. The patient is then helped to recline
rapidly so that the head hangs over the edge of the table (B),
still turned 45 degrees from the midline.
Within several seconds, this elicits vertigo and nystagmus that is
right beating with a rotary (counterclockwise) component. An
important feature of this type of "peripheral" vertigo is a
change in the direction of nystagmus when the patient sits up
again with his head still rotated. If no nystagmus is elicited, the
maneuver is repeated after a pause of 30 s, with the head
turned to the left
Treatment (Dix-Hallpike maneuver)
Bedside maneuver for the treatment of a patient with benign
paroxysmal positional vertigo affecting the right ear. The presumed
position of the debris within the labyrinth during the maneuver is
shown on each panel. The maneuver is a four-step procedure. First, a
DixHallpike test is performed with the patient's head rotated 45
degrees toward the (affected) right ear and the neck slightly
extended with the chin pointed slightly upward. This position results in
the patient's head hanging to the right (A).
Once the vertigo and nystagmus provoked by this maneuver cease,
the patient's head is rotated about the rostralcaudal body axis until
the left ear is down (B).
Then the head and body are further rotated until the head is almost
face down (C).
The vertex of the head is kept tilted upward throughout the rotation.
The patient should be kept in the final, facedown position for about
10 to 15 s. With the head kept turned toward the left shoulder, the
patient is brought into the seated position (D).
