Triptans for symptomatic treatment of migraine headache

A 30 year old woman has debilitating, pulsating right sided headaches up to twice a month for several years. Her pain builds up rapidly and usually lasts 24 hours. She has to lie down during episodes, which are associated with sensitivity to light, severe nausea, and occasional vomiting. Over the counter analgesics such as ibuprofen or paracetamol were initially helpful in relieving pain, but not recently. She asks if any treatments may help with her headaches and allow her to return to her usual activities sooner.

How effective is the stethoscope at eliciting pathology?

I have been thinking for a while, most tests in medicine have a sensitivity and specificity when related to pathology. How does this relate to examination findings and especially those done with the stethoscope in cardiological and respiratory examinations?

Which exact parts of the hand are affected in carpal tunnel syndrome?

I'm asking only about sensitivity. Most pictures of carpal tunnel syndrome show that the thumb, index, middle and the adjacent half of the ring AND the related part of the hand are affected. But this image from fpnotebook.com clearly shows and says that the palm sensitivity is mediated by the branch of the median nerve that does not go through the carpal tunnel. So, I made a new image of carpal tunnel syndrome with only fingers colored. Can anyone who is certain of this say did I make it correct or not?

Guyon's canal syndrome - tingling in hand?

The same question as with carpal tunnel syndrome. Are only the fingers (the pinky and adjacent half of the ring finger) affected or also the related part of the hand? Acoording to my research until now, there can be paresthesia in the pinky side of the hand but only about halfway toward the wrist. Most other pictures show altered sensitivity beyond the wrist.

Signs and Symptoms in Family Medicine

Signs and Symptoms in Family Medicine, by Paul M. Paulman, MD et al, provides a unique evidence-based approach to diagnosis based on presenting signs. Focusing on the most common diagnoses observed in a medical practice, the book helps you "think horses, not zebras." A rating system for the sensitivity and specificity of the signs, symptoms, and diagnostic tests aids in the development of a focused and accurate differential diagnosis. This handy, take-along guide is ideal for quick reference at the bedside or a refresher while prepping for the boards. Confidently diagnose and treat common illnesses and conditions using an evidence-based, systematic approach. A unique ratings system indicates how frequently various symptoms and signs are associated with a particular diagnosis. Easily find what you need with consistently organized chapters and an at-a-glance bulleted format. "Think horses, not zebras" with a focus on the most frequently encountered diagnoses. Rule out the most serious possibilities quickly with differential diagnoses listed in descending order of severity. Review symptoms, signs, suggested work-up, and patient disposition for each diagnosis. Patients present with symptoms, not diagnoses
