182. Incidence and Causes of Overdiagnosis of Optic Neuritis. (PubMed)

Incidence and Causes of Overdiagnosis of Optic Neuritis. Diagnostic error is an important source of medical error. Overdiagnosis of optic neuritis may prompt unnecessary and costly diagnostic tests, procedures, and treatments.To assess the incidence of and characterize factors contributing to overdiagnosis of acute optic neuritis.In this retrospective clinic-based cross-sectional study of new patient encounters, 122 patients referred for acute optic neuritis at a university-based Midwestern (...) diagnosis and interventions undergone prior to referral.A total of 122 patients were referred with acute optic neuritis during the study period; 88 (72.1%) were female, and the mean (SD) age was 42.6 (14.0) years. Of these, 49 patients (40.2%; 95% CI, 31.4-49.4) were confirmed to have optic neuritis, and 73 (59.8%; 95% CI, 50.6-68.6) had an alternative diagnosis.

183. Mystery solved: Chiropractic manipulation of the neck did cause Katie May’s death from stroke

Bacon (not verified) on 22 Oct 2016 . More really strong evidence that there is no link between chiropractic & stroke was published last year when researchers analysed the data from over a million patient records & found that people were no more likely to suffer a stroke after seeing a chiropractor than after seeing a medical practitioner. What we do know is that when the vertebral artery starts to rupture from other causes, this often causes neck pain & headaches etc. This prompts the patient (...) for (headaches, neck pain).

Retrospective study to identify trigeminal–cervical ocular referred pain as a new causative entity of ocular pain To determine the prevalence and clinical characteristics of trigeminal-cervical (TC) ocular referred pain.A retrospective study of 1,680 patients seen during 2002-2010 was performed in an ocular surface specialty center to identify patients with or without TC pain defined as ocular pain with ipsilateral trigger points located at the occipital region. Patients with refractory TC (...) pain despite topical anesthetics and conventional treatments received interventional injection to each trigger point.A total of 81 (4.8%) patients (study group) with TC pain and 241 patients (control group) without TC pain were identified out of the 1,680 patients over an 8 year period. There was no difference in age, gender, prior surgeries, medications, non-pain symptoms, pain laterality, and concomitant ocular diseases between the 2 groups.

189. Beware the hazards of over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications

, menstrual cramps or headache are likely to treat themselves with ibuprofen or naproxen. But do they take the time to read the packaging information? While OTC warnings advise consulting a doctor for additional information, how often do patients actually come to the clinic with questions about their NSAID intake? The truth is these medications are not typically discussed unless a patient is admitted with a GI bleed or acute renal failure. This case encouraged me to begin questioning my patients about (...) their use of NSAIDs to find out if they were aware of the possible harm these drugs can cause. While most admitted using NSAIDs they gave different answers when it came to knowledge of side effects. Many patients were unaware of any complications. Others knew the medications should be taken with food, while some mentioned adverse effects such as liver toxicity. But the majority had no knowledge of the dangers of inappropriate doses of NSAIDs. I found this not only alarming, but something that needs

We know that if you have a runny nose, cough, and a sore throat, it’s probably a cold, and a test is not helpful because it’s more likely to give us the wrong diagnosis (i.e., it will tell us you have strep because you’re a carrier, not because you actually have strep throat).
