An experimental study has found that lack of sleep can increase the levels of brain chemicals that make eating pleasurable.

The various neuralgia conditions include Occipital Neuralgia, Supraorbital Neuralgia, Infraorbital Neuralgia, Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia, and Hypoglossal Neuralgia.The nerve may be damaged by injury, infection or the cause may not be known. It’s important to precisely identify the source of the pain in order to treat it effectively. Migraine may mimic one or more of these or these may mimic migraine symptoms. This means treatments may work for migraine patients. It is worth investigating.

hypoglossal nerve lesion is TONGUE TOWARDS!! - but the upper motor fibers in the corticobulbar tract are different, if these have a lesion, the tongue goes away!

Cranial nerves: I. OLFACTORY = smell. 2. OPTIC = vision. 3. OCULOMOTOR = pupil constriction. 4. TROCHLEAR = eye movements, (down & in). 5. TRIGEMINAL = blink reflex. 6. ABDUCENS = eye movement, (outward). 7. FACIAL = smiling. 8. ACOUSTIC = hearing & balance 9. GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL = swallowing 10. VAGUS = gagging & swallowing 11. SPINAL ACCESSORY = shoulder shrug 12.

A recent study showed that the use of a pacemaker on the hypoglossal nerve in the neck effectively treated people with moderate to severe sleep apnea.
