Central nervous system (CNS) sensitization refers to a state in which the CNS, specifically the brain and spinal cord, becomes increasingly hypersensitive to stimuli. This heightened sensitivity results in an amplified response to painful or non-painful stimuli.

In CNS sensitization, there is an increased responsiveness of neurons in the CNS, leading to a lower threshold for activation and an enhanced transmission of nociceptive (pain) signals. This can occur due to various factors such as tissue injury, inflammation, or nerve damage, which trigger changes in the nervous system that contribute to the development and maintenance of chronic pain conditions.

CNS sensitization is associated with functional and structural reorganization within the CNS, including alterations in neurotransmitter release, ion channel function, and synaptic plasticity. These changes can result in long-term modifications in the processing and perception of pain, making it more difficult to manage and treat chronic pain conditions.

The Central Nervous System (CNS) is the part of the nervous system that consists of the brain and spinal cord. It is called the "central" system because it receives information from, and sends information to, the rest of the body through peripheral nerves, which make up the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS).

The CNS is responsible for processing sensory information, controlling motor functions, and regulating various autonomic processes like heart rate, respiration, and digestion. The brain, as the command center of the CNS, interprets sensory stimuli, formulates thoughts, and initiates actions. The spinal cord serves as a conduit for nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and the rest of the body.

The CNS is protected by several structures, including the skull (which houses the brain) and the vertebral column (which surrounds and protects the spinal cord). Despite these protective measures, the CNS remains vulnerable to injury and disease, which can have severe consequences due to its crucial role in controlling essential bodily functions.

Central nervous system (CNS) diseases refer to medical conditions that primarily affect the brain and spinal cord. The CNS is responsible for controlling various functions in the body, including movement, sensation, cognition, and behavior. Therefore, diseases of the CNS can have significant impacts on a person's quality of life and overall health.

There are many different types of CNS diseases, including:

1. Infectious diseases: These are caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites that infect the brain or spinal cord. Examples include meningitis, encephalitis, and polio.
2. Neurodegenerative diseases: These are characterized by progressive loss of nerve cells in the brain or spinal cord. Examples include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease.
3. Structural diseases: These involve damage to the physical structure of the brain or spinal cord, such as from trauma, tumors, or stroke.
4. Functional diseases: These affect the function of the nervous system without obvious structural damage, such as multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.
5. Genetic disorders: Some CNS diseases are caused by genetic mutations, such as spinal muscular atrophy and Friedreich's ataxia.

Symptoms of CNS diseases can vary widely depending on the specific condition and the area of the brain or spinal cord that is affected. They may include muscle weakness, paralysis, seizures, loss of sensation, difficulty with coordination and balance, confusion, memory loss, changes in behavior or mood, and pain. Treatment for CNS diseases depends on the specific condition and may involve medications, surgery, rehabilitation therapy, or a combination of these approaches.

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) are comorbid visceral pain disorders seen commonly in women with unknown etiology and limited treatment options and can involve visceral organ cross-sensitization. (aspetjournals.org)
  • These conditions like fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, and headache have taught us about this third mechanism of pain, which is being called nociplastic pain and used to be called central sensitization, where the pain is really coming from the central nervous system rather than from the region of the body in which the person is experiencing pain. (medscape.com)
  • In three rodent models, we employed a monoclonal anti-CGRP F(ab') 2 to investigate the hypothesis that visceral organ cross-sensitization is mediated by abnormal CGRP signaling. (aspetjournals.org)

  • The aims of this study were to (1) examine the pattern of experimental pain responses in the affected and nonaffected extremities in patients with shoulder pain and (2) explore the intraindividual association between sensitization states derived from experimental pain testing. (utmb.edu)
  • The administration of TNF- α and interleukins IL-1 β , IL-8, IL-12, IL-15, and IL-18 in rodents via intradermal route has been shown to produce a heightened and prolonged mechanical sensitization and hypernociception [ 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • A secondary goal of this pilot study was to see whether it was possible to measure improvement in localized areas of pain in conditions that result in widespread pain and central sensitization-conditions that include fibromyalgia, low back pain and temporomandibular disorder. (amtamassage.org)
  • Objetivo: analisar parâmetros clínicos sugestivos de sensibilização central em mulheres com disfunção temporomandibular dolorosa crônica antes e após uma intervenção baseada em mindfulness . (bvsalud.org)
  • The early presence of central sensitization is associated with poor recovery. (edu.au)
  • Sixty seven participants were placed into one of the 3 sub-groups and further assessed to identify the presence of central sensitisation (CS). (brighton.ac.uk)

  • Background: Withdrawal is believed to play a central role in the brain disease model of addiction. (bvsalud.org)
  • Pregabalin's effects on central sensitization indicate the potential to prevent or modulate these processes after whiplash injury and to improve health outcomes, but this has not been investigated. (edu.au)
  • Not only are patients who suffer from central sensitization extremely sensitive to things that should hurt, but ordinary things like a simple touch or slight pressure can be excruciating. (progressivepain.com)
  • Pain that typical patients may describe as a two on a numeric pain scale (1-10 level of pain) may feel like an 8 or a 9 for patients that have central sensitization. (progressivepain.com)
  • Similar to central sensitization, central pain syndrome is heightened by light touch. (progressivepain.com)
  • The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. (whatsinproducts.com)
  • The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labelling of chemicals. (whatsinproducts.com)
  • Chemicals are associated with codes that define their health, physical and environmental hazards.This universal hazard communication system was developed to ensure that employers, employees and consumers are provided with adequate, practical, reliable and comprehensible information on the hazards of chemicals, so that they can take effective preventive and protective measure for their own health and safety. (whatsinproducts.com)
  • With the advent of improved tools to examine the astrocytes, which have been believed to play a supportive role in the central nervous system (CNS) for years, their participation in the operation of the CNS and drug addiction was unveiled. (degruyter.com)
  • Nerve endings in the degenerated disc are activated due to a constant inflammation and they are thought to transmit the pain signals to the central nervous system. (aofoundation.org)
  • Fibromyalgia is recognized as one of many central pain-related syndromes that are common in the general population. (medscape.com)
  • During flare ups, the nervous system goes into shock and is in a constant state of high reactivity. (progressivepain.com)
  • A central tenet of controlling AMR is antibiotic drug stewardship, which seeks to limit inappropriate antibiotic drug usage by avoiding unnecessary prescribing, including discontinuing antibiotic therapy if it is not required. (cdc.gov)
  • By using an in vitro model (with inflamed intervertebral disc cells), the effect of celecoxib on outgrowth and sensitization of dorsal root ganglion cells (DRG), which are the main transmitter of pain signals in the IVD, will be investigated. (aofoundation.org)
  • Central nervous system effect. (customisedconsulting.com)
  • The endocrine system-the other communication system in the body-is made up of endocrine glands that produce hormones, chemical substances released into the bloodstream to guide processes such as metabolism, growth, and sexual development. (medscape.com)
