Trigeminal Neuralgia: A syndrome characterized by recurrent episodes of excruciating pain lasting several seconds or longer in the sensory distribution of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. Pain may be initiated by stimulation of trigger points on the face, lips, or gums or by movement of facial muscles or chewing. Associated conditions include MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, vascular anomalies, ANEURYSMS, and neoplasms. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p187)Neuralgia, Postherpetic: Pain in nerves, frequently involving facial SKIN, resulting from the activation the latent varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). The two forms of the condition preceding the pain are HERPES ZOSTER OTICUS; and HERPES ZOSTER OPHTHALMICUS. Following the healing of the rashes and blisters, the pain sometimes persists.Neuralgia: Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.Facial Neuralgia: Neuralgic syndromes which feature chronic or recurrent FACIAL PAIN as the primary manifestation of disease. Disorders of the trigeminal and facial nerves are frequently associated with these conditions.Trigeminal Nerve: The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the TRIGEMINAL GANGLION and project to the TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.Glossopharyngeal Nerve Diseases: Diseases of the ninth cranial (glossopharyngeal) nerve or its nuclei in the medulla. The nerve may be injured by diseases affecting the lower brain stem, floor of the posterior fossa, jugular foramen, or the nerve's extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include loss of sensation from the pharynx, decreased salivation, and syncope. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia refers to a condition that features recurrent unilateral sharp pain in the tongue, angle of the jaw, external auditory meatus and throat that may be associated with SYNCOPE. Episodes may be triggered by cough, sneeze, swallowing, or pressure on the tragus of the ear. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1390)Pudendal Neuralgia: Pain associated with a damaged PUDENDAL NERVE. Clinical features may include positional pain with sitting in the perineal and genital areas, sexual dysfunction and FECAL INCONTINENCE and URINARY INCONTINENCE.Nerve Compression Syndromes: Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.Rhizotomy: Surgical interruption of a spinal or cranial nerve root. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Herpes Zoster Vaccine: An attenuated vaccine used to prevent and/or treat HERPES ZOSTER, a disease caused by HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 3.Microvascular Decompression Surgery: Surgery performed to relieve pressure from MICROVESSELS that are located around nerves and are causing NERVE COMPRESSION SYNDROMES.Cerebellopontine Angle: Junction between the cerebellum and the pons.Facial Pain: Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.Decompression, Surgical: A surgical operation for the relief of pressure in a body compartment or on a body part. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Microsurgery: The performance of surgical procedures with the aid of a microscope.Pulsed Radiofrequency Treatment: The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.Electrocoagulation: Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.Carbamazepine: An anticonvulsant used to control grand mal and psychomotor or focal seizures. Its mode of action is not fully understood, but some of its actions resemble those of PHENYTOIN; although there is little chemical resemblance between the two compounds, their three-dimensional structure is similar.Occipital Bone: Part of the back and base of the CRANIUM that encloses the FORAMEN MAGNUM.Analgesics: Compounds capable of relieving pain without the loss of CONSCIOUSNESS.Hemifacial Spasm: Recurrent clonic contraction of facial muscles, restricted to one side. It may occur as a manifestation of compressive lesions involving the seventh cranial nerve (FACIAL NERVE DISEASES), during recovery from BELL PALSY, or in association with other disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1378)Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus: Virus infection of the Gasserian ganglion and its nerve branches characterized by pain and vesicular eruptions with much swelling. Ocular involvement is usually heralded by a vesicle on the tip of the nose. This area is innervated by the nasociliary nerve.Herpesvirus 3, Human: The type species of VARICELLOVIRUS causing CHICKENPOX (varicella) and HERPES ZOSTER (shingles) in humans.Cyclohexanecarboxylic AcidsPain Measurement: Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.Glossopharyngeal Nerve: The 9th cranial nerve. The glossopharyngeal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve; it conveys somatic and autonomic efferents as well as general, special, and visceral afferents. Among the connections are motor fibers to the stylopharyngeus muscle, parasympathetic fibers to the parotid glands, general and taste afferents from the posterior third of the tongue, the nasopharynx, and the palate, and afferents from baroreceptors and CHEMORECEPTOR CELLS of the carotid sinus.Hypesthesia: Absent or reduced sensitivity to cutaneous stimulation.Central Nervous System Venous Angioma: A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.Paresthesia: Subjective cutaneous sensations (e.g., cold, warmth, tingling, pressure, etc.) that are experienced spontaneously in the absence of stimulation.Brachial Plexus Neuritis: A syndrome associated with inflammation of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical features include severe pain in the shoulder region which may be accompanied by MUSCLE WEAKNESS and loss of sensation in the upper extremity. This condition may be associated with VIRUS DISEASES; IMMUNIZATION; SURGERY; heroin use (see HEROIN DEPENDENCE); and other conditions. The term brachial neuralgia generally refers to pain associated with brachial plexus injury. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1355-6)Trigeminal Nerve Diseases: Diseases of the trigeminal nerve or its nuclei, which are located in the pons and medulla. The nerve is composed of three divisions: ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular, which provide sensory innervation to structures of the face, sinuses, and portions of the cranial vault. The mandibular nerve also innervates muscles of mastication. Clinical features include loss of facial and intra-oral sensation and weakness of jaw closure. Common conditions affecting the nerve include brain stem ischemia, INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS, and TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA.Headache: The symptom of PAIN in the cranial region. It may be an isolated benign occurrence or manifestation of a wide variety of HEADACHE DISORDERS.Acyclovir: A GUANOSINE analog that acts as an antimetabolite. Viruses are especially susceptible. Used especially against herpes.Cranial Nerves: Twelve pairs of nerves that carry general afferent, visceral afferent, special afferent, somatic efferent, and autonomic efferent fibers.Visual Analog Scale: A subjective psychometric response scale used to measure distinct behavioral or physiological phenomena based on linear numerical gradient or yes/no alternatives.Amitriptyline: Tricyclic antidepressant with anticholinergic and sedative properties. It appears to prevent the re-uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin at nerve terminals, thus potentiating the action of these neurotransmitters. Amitriptyline also appears to antagonize cholinergic and alpha-1 adrenergic responses to bioactive amines.Trigeminal Nerve Injuries: Traumatic injuries to the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. It may result in extreme pain, abnormal sensation in the areas the nerve innervates on face, jaw, gums and tongue and can cause difficulties with speech and chewing. It is sometimes associated with various dental treatments.Spinal Nerves: The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.Amines: A group of compounds derived from ammonia by substituting organic radicals for the hydrogens. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)Pain, Intractable: Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.Trigeminal Ganglion: The semilunar-shaped ganglion containing the cells of origin of most of the sensory fibers of the trigeminal nerve. It is situated within the dural cleft on the cerebral surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone and gives off the ophthalmic, maxillary, and part of the mandibular nerves.Lidocaine: A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of PROCAINE but its duration of action is shorter than that of BUPIVACAINE or PRILOCAINE.Antidepressive Agents, Tricyclic: Substances that contain a fused three-ring moiety and are used in the treatment of depression. These drugs block the uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin into axon terminals and may block some subtypes of serotonin, adrenergic, and histamine receptors. However the mechanism of their antidepressant effects is not clear because the therapeutic effects usually take weeks to develop and may reflect compensatory changes in the central nervous system.Lateral Medullary Syndrome: INFARCTION of the dorsolateral aspect of MEDULLA OBLONGATA in the BRAIN STEM. It is caused by occlusion of the VERTEBRAL ARTERY and/or the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. Clinical manifestations vary with the size of infarction, but may include loss of pain and temperature sensation in the ipsilateral face and contralateral body below the chin; ipsilateral HORNER SYNDROME; ipsilateral ATAXIA; DYSARTHRIA; VERTIGO; nausea, hiccup; dysphagia; and VOCAL CORD PARALYSIS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p801)Spasm: An involuntary contraction of a muscle or group of muscles. Spasms may involve SKELETAL MUSCLE or SMOOTH MUSCLE.Facial Hemiatrophy: A syndrome characterized by slowly progressive unilateral atrophy of facial subcutaneous fat, muscle tissue, skin, cartilage, and bone. The condition typically progresses over a period of 2-10 years and then stabilizes.Sensory System Agents: Drugs that act on neuronal sensory receptors resulting in an increase, decrease, or modification of afferent nerve activity. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p367)Radiosurgery: A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.Anesthetics, Local: Drugs that block nerve conduction when applied locally to nerve tissue in appropriate concentrations. They act on any part of the nervous system and on every type of nerve fiber. In contact with a nerve trunk, these anesthetics can cause both sensory and motor paralysis in the innervated area. Their action is completely reversible. (From Gilman AG, et. al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) Nearly all local anesthetics act by reducing the tendency of voltage-dependent sodium channels to activate.Trigeminal Nuclei: Nuclei of the trigeminal nerve situated in the brain stem. They include the nucleus of the spinal trigeminal tract (TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS, SPINAL), the principal sensory nucleus, the mesencephalic nucleus, and the motor nucleus.SUNCT Syndrome: A primary headache disorder that is characterized by frequent short-lasting, unilateral, neuralgiform pain attacks in the ocular area, with CONJUNCTIVA fluid-filling and tearing. SUNCT syndrome is usually resistant to treatment.2-Aminopurine: A purine that is an isomer of ADENINE (6-aminopurine).Hypnosis, Dental: Process in which a patient is induced into a trance-like state in order to relieve anxiety during a dental procedure.Pain: An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.Neurosurgical Procedures: Surgery performed on the nervous system or its parts.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Analgesics, Non-Narcotic: A subclass of analgesic agents that typically do not bind to OPIOID RECEPTORS and are not addictive. Many non-narcotic analgesics are offered as NONPRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

The novel analgesic compound OT-7100 (5-n-butyl-7-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoylamino)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimid ine) attenuates mechanical nociceptive responses in animal models of acute and peripheral neuropathic hyperalgesia. (1/1061)

We investigated the effects of OT-7100, a novel analgesic compound (5-n-butyl-7-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoylamino)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidi ne), on prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis in vitro, acute hyperalgesia induced by yeast and substance P in rats and hyperalgesia in rats with a chronic constriction injury to the sciatic nerve (Bennett model), which is a model for peripheral neuropathic pain. OT-7100 did not inhibit prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis at 10(-8)-10(-4) M. Single oral doses of 3 and 10 mg/kg OT-7100 were effective on the hyperalgesia induced by yeast. Single oral doses of 0.1, 0.3, 1 and 3 mg/kg OT-7100 were effective on the hyperalgesia induced by substance P in which indomethacin had no effect. Repeated oral administration of OT-7100 (10 and 30 mg/kg) was effective in normalizing the mechanical nociceptive threshold in the injured paw without affecting the nociceptive threshold in the uninjured paw in the Bennett model. Indomethacin had no effect in this model. While amitriptyline (10 and 30 mg/kg) and clonazepam (3 and 10 mg/kg) significantly normalized the nociceptive threshold in the injured paw, they also increased the nociceptive threshold in the uninjured paw. These results suggest that OT-7100 is a new type of analgesic with the effect of normalizing the nociceptive threshold in peripheral neuropathic hyperalgesia.  (+info)

Characterization of antiallodynic actions of ALE-0540, a novel nerve growth factor receptor antagonist, in the rat. (2/1061)

There is growing evidence that nerve growth factor (NGF) may function as a mediator of persistent pain states. We have identified a novel nonpeptidic molecule, ALE-0540, that inhibits the binding of NGF to tyrosine kinase (Trk) A or both p75 and TrkA (IC50 5.88 +/- 1. 87 microM, 3.72 +/- 1.3 microM, respectively), as well as signal transduction and biological responses mediated by TrkA receptors. ALE-0540 was tested in models of neuropathic pain and thermally-induced inflammatory pain, using two routes of administration, a systemic i.p. and a spinal intrathecal (i.th.) route. Morphine was also tested for comparison in the antiallodynia model using mechanical stimuli. We show that either i.p. or i.th. administration of ALE-0540 in rats produced antiallodynia in the L5/L6 ligation model of neuropathic pain. The calculated A50 values (and 95% confidence intervals) for ALE-0540 administered i.p. and i. th. were 38 (17.5-83) mg/kg and 34.6 (17.3-69.4) microgram, respectively. ALE-0540 given i.th., at doses of 30 and 60 microgram, also blocked tactile allodynia in the thermal sensitization model. Although morphine displayed greater potency [A50 value of 7.1 (5.6-8. 8) mg/kg] than ALE-0540 in anti-allodynic effect when given i.p. to L5/L6-ligated rats, it was not active when administered i.th. These data suggest that a blockade of NGF bioactivity using a NGF receptor antagonist is capable of blocking neuropathic and inflammatory pain and further support the hypothesis that NGF is involved in signaling pathways associated with these pain states. ALE-0540 represents a nonpeptidic small molecule which can be used to examine mechanisms leading to the development of agents for the treatment of pain.  (+info)

Cellular mechanisms of neuropathic pain, morphine tolerance, and their interactions. (3/1061)

Compelling evidence has accumulated over the last several years from our laboratory, as well as others, indicating that central hyperactive states resulting from neuronal plastic changes within the spinal cord play a critical role in hyperalgesia associated with nerve injury and inflammation. In our laboratory, chronic constriction injury of the common sciatic nerve, a rat model of neuropathic pain, has been shown to result in activation of central nervous system excitatory amino acid receptors and subsequent intracellular cascades including protein kinase C translocation and activation, nitric oxide production, and nitric oxide-activated poly(ADP ribose) synthetase activation. Similar cellular mechanisms also have been implicated in the development of tolerance to the analgesic effects of morphine. A recently observed phenomenon, the development of "dark neurons," is associated with both chronic constriction injury and morphine tolerance. A site of action involved in both hyperalgesia and morphine tolerance is in the superficial laminae of the spinal cord dorsal horn. These observations suggest that hyperalgesia and morphine tolerance may be interrelated at the level of the superficial laminae of the dorsal horn by common neural substrates that interact at the level of excitatory amino acid receptor activation and subsequent intracellular events. The demonstration of interrelationships between neural mechanisms underlying hyperalgesia and morphine tolerance may lead to a better understanding of the neurobiology of these two phenomena in particular and pain in general. This knowledge may also provide a scientific basis for improved pain management with opiate analgesics.  (+info)

Does a neuroimmune interaction contribute to the genesis of painful peripheral neuropathies? (4/1061)

Painful peripheral neuropathies are precipitated by nerve injury from disease or trauma. All such injuries will be accompanied by an inflammatory reaction, a neuritis, that will mobilize the immune system. The role of the inflammation itself is difficult to determine in the presence of structural damage to the nerve. A method has been devised to produce a focal neuritis in the rat sciatic nerve that involves no more than trivial structural damage to the nerve. This experimental focal neuritis produces neuropathic pain sensations (heat- and mechano-hyperalgesia, and cold- and mechano-allodynia) in the ipsilateral hind paw. The abnormal pain sensations begin in 1-2 days and last for 4-6 days, with a subsequent return to normal. These results suggest that there is a neuroimmune interaction that occurs at the outset of nerve injury (and perhaps episodically over time in slow developing conditions like diabetic neuropathy) that produces neuropathic pain. The short duration of the phenomena suggest that they may prime the system for more slowly developing mechanisms of abnormal pain (e.g., ectopic discharge in axotomized primary afferent neurons) that underlie the chronic phase of painful neuropathy.  (+info)

Using gabapentin to treat neuropathic pain. (5/1061)

OBJECTIVE: To review use of gabapentin as an adjuvant agent to treat neuropathic pain. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: MEDLINE was searched from 1995 to October 1998 for reports. There were approximately 20 citations. Additional articles from Pain and other medical journals were reviewed. No double-blind studies have examined gabapentin and its use as an analgesic adjuvant agent. MAIN MESSAGE: Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant medication used recently as an effective adjuvant agent for treating neuropathic pain. It is a structural analogue of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), but its receptor and biochemical function remain unknown. Gabapentin has desirable pharmacokinetic properties and acceptable side effects, which simplify its use. There are very few interactions between gabapentin and other medications, and gabapentin is well tolerated. CONCLUSION: Gabapentin could be an effective adjuvant agent for many neuropathic pain states.  (+info)

Transmission of chronic nociception by spinal neurons expressing the substance P receptor. (6/1061)

Substance P receptor (SPR)-expressing spinal neurons were ablated with the selective cytotoxin substance P-saporin. Loss of these neurons resulted in a reduction of thermal hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia associated with persistent neuropathic and inflammatory pain states. This loss appeared to be permanent. Responses to mildly painful stimuli and morphine analgesia were unaffected by this treatment. These results identify a target for treating persistent pain and suggest that the small population of SPR-expressing neurons in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord plays a pivotal role in the generation and maintenance of chronic neuropathic and inflammatory pain.  (+info)

Integrative approach to the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia: a case series. (7/1061)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if the addition of alternative therapy to conventional medicine enhances the treatment of pain in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). METHODOLOGY: A review of literature from 1988-1998 was conducted on the MEDLINE database, searching for information on the current treatment of PHN. The literature review found that although many medications have been used to reduce the pain of PHN, no treatments have been completely successful in decreasing pain. Data on pain reduction in PHN following treatment with a multifaceted alternative therapy combined with conventional treatment were compiled from a group of patients in the principal investigator's family medicine practice. RESULTS: The alternative therapy employed in this study, combined with selected medications, showed an average pain reduction of 72.1 percent. There was a 77-percent average pain reduction in patients with herpes zoster (HZ) onset of more than one year and a 68-percent reduction in patients with HZ onset between one month and one year. Almost two-thirds of the 56 PHN patients reported pain reductions of between 75 and 100 percent. CONCLUSION: These preliminary data suggest the combination of alternative therapy and selected conventional medications provides good pain relief for most patients presenting with PHN. Randomized trials with appropriate control groups are needed to validate the effectiveness of this therapy in the treatment of PHN.  (+info)

I. Cellular and molecular biology of sodium channel beta-subunits: therapeutic implications for pain? I. Cellular and molecular biology of sodium channel beta-subunits: therapeutic implications for pain? (8/1061)

Voltage-gated sodium channel alpha-subunits have been shown to be key mediators of the pathophysiology of pain. The present review considers the role of sodium channel auxiliary beta-subunits in channel modulation, channel protein expression levels, and interactions with extracellular matrix and cytoskeletal signaling molecules. Although beta-subunits have not yet been directly implicated in pain mechanisms, their intimate association with and ability to regulate alpha-subunits predicts that they may be a viable target for therapeutic intervention in the future. It is proposed that multifunctional sodium channel beta-subunits provide a critical link between extracellular and intracellular signaling molecules and thus have the ability to fine tune channel activity and electrical excitability.  (+info)

Neuropathic pain is pain caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system. Neuropathic pain may be associated with abnormal sensations called dysesthesia or pain from normally non-painful stimuli (allodynia). It may have continuous and/or episodic (paroxysmal) components. The latter resemble stabbings or electric shocks. Common qualities include burning or coldness, "pins and needles" sensations, numbness and itching. Up to 7% to 8% of the European population is affected, and in 5% of persons it may be severe. Neuropathic pain may result from disorders of the peripheral nervous system or the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Thus, neuropathic pain may be divided into peripheral neuropathic pain, central neuropathic pain, or mixed (peripheral and central) neuropathic pain. Central neuropathic pain is found in spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and some strokes. Aside from diabetes (see diabetic neuropathy) and other metabolic conditions, the common causes ...
Pain as a result of nerve injury (neuropathic pain) is a particularly severe form of chronic pain. Common examples of neuropathic pain are pain due to diabetes and shingles. There is good evidence that an intravenous infusion of lidocaine (local anesthetic) is useful for the management of neuropathic pain in the short term - up to six hours ...
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO), a medical technology company with a pioneering navigated non-invasive brain stimulation system, announces it has CE marked and released for sales its Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT®) system for the relief of chronic neuropathic pain, a new and potentially major indication for Nexstims technology.. Neuropathic pain is a significant public health problem affecting 6-7% of the general population[1] and chronic neuropathic pain is estimated to affect more than six million people across the seven major pharmaceutical markets (USA, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom). Current therapies have limited efficacy with only 30-40% of patients declaring that they receive satisfactory (,50%) relief from their pharmacological treatment[2]. A significant minority of patients fail to gain satisfactory relief with current therapies and are seeking additional options.. Nexstims NBT® system is based on its clinically validated navigation software which ...
Central neuropathic pain. The most common type of MS-associated pain is central neuropathic pain, or pain due to a lesion affecting the somatosensory system-ie, a lesion that causes damage in, and alterations to, the pain-sensing mechanisms in the central nervous system.4 Among the central neuropathic pain syndromes, dysesthetic extremity pain is the most common condition reported by MS patients.1,5 Usually a chronic condition, dysesthetic extremity pain is a persistent burning, stinging, or aching pain that typically affects feet and legs bilaterally (but can be unilateral), although sometimes truncal pain is present. Central dysesthesia may be worse at night and may be exacerbated by physical activity. The pain can be girdling or band-like, or can be similar to unilateral radicular pain that follows the nerve; conversely, the pain may be diffuse, widespread, multifocal, or changing. Other diagnoses, such as musculoskeletal pain and peripheral neuropathy, should be ruled out when diagnosing ...
Studies investigating CBZ and LTG in rat neuropathic pain models are limited, and direct comparisons with the current work are difficult due to differences in rat strain, model, routes of administration, and behavioral measurement (e.g., Hunter et al., 1997; Erichsen et al., 2003; Decosterd et al., 2004; Lindia et al., 2005). In most cases, however, doses associated with efficacy in neuropathic pain models are in the same range that would have produced ataxic/sedative effects in our accelerating Rotarod assay. Thus, for CBZ and LTG, it is difficult to distinguish "efficacy" from side effects. This lack of TI in rats seems to translate directly to a poor TI for treating neuropathic pain in humans (Mao and Chen, 2000; Jensen, 2002; Petersen et al., 2003). In contrast, PPPA has a TI ,10, suggesting a meaningful separation between doses that are efficacious in reversing mechanical hyperalgesia and those producing ataxia. To confirm this, exploratory pharmacokinetic studies in rats were conducted and ...

Anaesthesiology Faculty: Health Sciences, Bloemfontein Correspondence Prof CL Odendaal [email protected] Neuropathic Pain Introduction The incidence of neuropathic pain has been put at 20% of all patients visiting pain clinics.1 The prevalence of neuropathic pain is not at all clear and this can be attributed to the fact that terminology defining the disease is very uncertain. Neuropathic pain conditions are not at all a new entity. The first cases have been described in the 19th century. However, only recently has the ..
1 It is important to differentiate nociceptive pain from neuropathic pain because certain medications are more effective for one type of pain than another.. 2 Analgesics are the most effective medications for nociceptive pain and include peripherally acting analgesics (e.g. acetaminophen, aspirin, NSAIDs) or centrally acting analgesics (e.g. opioids).. 3 The drugs of choice for neuropathic pain are anticonvulsants and noradrenergic antidepressants.. 4 Muscle relaxants are a class of medications that do not specifically relax tight muscles but instead exert a therapeutic effect through sedation and central depression of neuronal transmission.. 5 NSAIDs are extensively prescribed for spinal pain but have serious potential side effects related to the gastrointestinal tract, renal, and cardiovascular system..

Experiments in animal models have greatly enriched our understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of nerve injury-induced neuropathic pain. Undoubtedly, structural and functional alterations on neuronal pathways play determinant roles. In addition, findings from the past 20 years have demonstrated the importance of the immune system in modulating neuronal activities (Scholz and Woolf, 2007). Although the involvement of both neuronal and immune systems has been characterized in the context of neuropathic pain, very little is known about the role that the vascular system plays in the development and maintenance of debilitating chronic pain conditions.. Although the direct contribution of vascular dysfunction to neuropathic pain has not been explored fully, evidence of microvascular disturbances has been reported in both humans having neuropathic pain and in neuropathic pain animal models. For example, in diabetes, pathological changes result in basement ...
Neuropathic pain is difficult to control because it is only partially sensitive to opioid analgesics, and requires the addition of other therapies such as antidepressants and epileptics. Ziconotide is a drug that is used to treat neuropathic pain in patients who have had inadequate pain control with prior combination of medicines ...
We have shown in a small cohort of healthy subjects using the capsaicin-induced model of central sensitization that imaging can convincingly differentiate an analgesic that is effective in neuropathic pain from one that is not, as well as differentiate both from placebo. Although our model elicits some of the key features and mechanisms of neuropathic pain, there is no injury to the nervous system. Therefore, the mechanisms responsible for analgesic modulation of the neural response in neuropathic pain patients might not be precisely the same as those in our healthy volunteers-albeit in a centrally sensitized state. We found no significant relationship between any of the gabapentin-modulated pain reports and neural activity in the nociceptive- and pain-processing areas. Although this is most likely explained by the inherently large variability of subjective pain reports from a small sample, it is possible that this gabapentin-induced modulation of neural activity might reflect additional central ...
Peripheral neuropathy is a widespread and potentially incapacitating pathological condition that encompasses more than 100 different forms and manifestations of nerve damage. The diverse pathogenesis of peripheral neuropathy affects autonomic, motor and/or sensory neurons, and the symptoms that typify the condition are abnormal cutaneous sensation, muscle dysfunction and, most notably, chronic pain. Chronic neuropathic pain is difficult to treat and is often characterized by either exaggerated responses to painful stimuli (hyperalgesia) or pain resulting from stimuli that would not normally provoke pain (allodynia). The objective of this review is to provide an overview of some pathways associated with the development of peripheral neuropathy and then discuss the benefits of exercise interventions. The development of neuropathic pain is a highly complex and multifactorial process, but recent evidence indicates that the activation of spinal glial cells via the enzyme glycogen synthase kinase 3 and

Neuropathic pain is one of the most common, most debilitating, most costly, and most difficult to treat categories of chronic pain conditions that are characterized by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system. Managing neuropathic pain is challenging and requires skillful assessment and comprehensive and integrated treatment strategies that are mechanism-guided, evidence-based, and individualized.
Results- CHEP amplitude was reduced in patients compared to age- and gender-matched controls (14.8±15.6 vs 33.7±10.1 μV, p,0.001). Abnormal CHEP patterns (reduced amplitude or prolonged latency) were noted in 81.3% of these patients. The CHEP amplitude was the most significant parameter correlated with IENF density (p=0.003) and pain perception to contact heat stimuli (p=0.019) on multiple linear regression models. An excitability index was derived by calculating the ratio of the CHEP amplitude over the IENF density. This excitability index was higher in diabetic patients compared to controls (p=0.023), indicating enhanced brain activities in neuropathic pain. Among different neuropathic pain symptoms, the subgroup with evoked pain had higher CHEP amplitudes than the subgroup without evoked pain (p=0.011). ...

Background and objective: Post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a distressing neuropathic pain condition mainly affecting elderly patients. Neuropathic pain symptoms can be of a burning, shooting and stabbing nature, and may continue for prolonged periods and are often poorly controlled by polymedication. The aim of this study was to evaluate the analgesic efficacy and safety of topical analgesic treatment (5% lidocaine [lignocaine] medicated plaster) compared with placebo plaster in patients with PHN. Methods: This was a double-blind, placebo plaster-controlled, parallel-group, multicentre study employing enriched enrolment with randomized withdrawal methodology. After an initial 8-week open-label, active run-in phase, responders entered a 2-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase. The study was conducted at 33 outpatient investigational centres in 12 European countries. Patients with PHN were selected who were aged >=50 years, had experienced neuropathic pain persisting for >=3 ...
Nociceptive Pain and Neuropathic pain are two different types which refer to the source of the physiological trigger of a pain. When we say Nociceptive pain it can either be Somatic or Visceral in nature. Somatic pain is because of a physical injury triggered to a human body part just like a bone, joint or human body tissue. Sprains, bumps, bruises and some kinds of inflammation because of infection or arthritis all fall under this group of pain as well. Some obstructions and Myofascial pain because of muscle abnormalities is also under this group of pain. Nociceptive pain is for probably the most part localized in the area thats suffering from a personal injury. Pain of this kind has been identified as being from dull to sharp, aching to throbbing and or perhaps gnawing. The examples of injuries that triggers this pain could be fractures, cancer that spreads "metastatic" to the bone, rheumatoid arthritis and also tumors. Nociceptors are definitely the nerves inside our body systems that react ...
RnRMarketResearch.com adds report "PharmaPoint: Neuropathic Pain - 5EU Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022" to its store.. Neuropathic pain (NP) is defined as a disorder of the sensorimotor system and is distinctly different from nociceptive pain, which is a consequence of trauma, injury, or inflammation. The main difference between neuropathic and nociceptive pain is the absence of a continuous nociceptive input in neuropathic pain. Although the term neuropathic pain is used to describe a wide range of pain syndromes with varying etiologies, this report focuses on 3 distinct forms of NP: Painful diabetic neuropathy, Postherpetic neuralgia and trigeminal neuralgia. The main classes of drugs used to treat these three neuropathic pain indications include anticonvulsants, antidepressants, opioids and topical treatments. However, despite the availability of multiple pain medications only 50% of patients respond to any given drug and there are numerous the side effects associated particularly ...
We have a range of medications that are available for treating pain following spinal chord injury.. But its very important to match the medication to the type of pain.. And this means using the classification of pain, which identifies the different types of pain that weve been talking about.. So this means working out exactly what type of pain you have and then using the appropriate drugs for that type of pain.. For example if you have musculoskeletal pain the type of drugs that we use would be quite different from those that if you had neuropathic pain.. As weve looked at before, musculoskeletal pain is pain that arises from bones, muscles, joints and tendons.. And this sort of pain responds fairly well to simple analgesics such as paracetamol, or anti inflammatory medications.. Some of these, such as Ibuprofen, are available over the counter from your pharmacist and other anti-inflammatory medications are available via prescription from your doctor.. What these medications are doing is to ...
Scientists studying induced nerve injury in rodents have found that the analgesic effects of morphine can decline over time. When morphine is used in combination with carbamazepine, which prevents epileptic seizures, this loss of drug efficacy may be reversed.. There has been mixed efficacy in general using opioids to treat neuropathic pain. The pain relief brought about by morphine can diminish over time. In this study, when carbamazepine was added to the morphine regimen, opioid induced hyperalgesia was reversed. As reported in PLOS ONE, the combination of drugs administered to rodents showed that "the dampening of the analgesic effects of morphine on neuropathic pain behavior in vivo can be countered with the addition of CBZ.".

DNA methylation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic pain. However, the specific genes that are regulated by DNA methylation under neuropathic pain condition remain largely unknown. Here we investigated how chemokine receptor CXCR3 is regulated by DNA methylation and its contribution to neuropathic pain induced by spinal nerve ligation (SNL) in mice. SNL increased Cxcr3 mRNA and protein expression in the neurons of spinal cord. Meanwhile, the CpG island in the Cxcr3 gene promoter region was demethylated, and the expression of DNA methyltransferase 3b (DNMT3b) was decreased. SNL also increased the binding of CCAAT/enhancer binding protein α (C/EBPα) with Cxcr3 promoter and decreased the binding of DNMT3b with Cxcr3 promoter in the spinal cord. C/EBPα expression was increased in spinal neurons after SNL, and inhibition of C/EBPα by intrathecal siRNA attenuated SNL-induced pain hypersensitivity and reduced Cxcr3 expression. Furthermore, SNL-induced mechanical allodynia and heat ...
... is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain, Neuropathic Special Interest group as "pain arising as a direct consequence of a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system". It can be caused by lesions of the peripheral or central nervous system or both.. The nerves involved can then transmit abnormal or incorrect messages to the brain resulting in increased intensity of pain, pain over a larger area or persistent pain. Neuropathic pain episodes can be divided into spontaneous or stimulus-evoked pain i.e. sensory changes.. It is estimated that neuropathic pain could be a significant feature in up to 40% of cancer pain syndromes and in one case series it was found that 79% of neuropathic pain cases result from nerve compression, 16% from nerve injury and 5% are sympathetically mediated1. Nerve injury in cancer has 3 main causes:. ...

The recent clamour for wider access to cannabis or cannabinoids as analgesics in chronic painful conditions has some logic. Humans have cannabinoid receptors in the central and peripheral nervous system,1 although the functions of these receptors and the endogenous ligands may yet be unclear. In animal testing cannabinoids reduce the hyperalgesia and allodynia associated with formalin, capsaicin, carrageenan, nerve injury, and visceral persistent pain.2 The hope then is that exogenous cannabis or cannabinoid may work as analgesics in pain syndromes that are poorly managed. The spasms of multiple sclerosis and resistant neuropathic pain are two obvious targets.. The background to this debate about legitimising cannabis (also called marijuana)-from the plant Cannabis sativa-for analgesic use is that the drug has been used both therapeutically and recreationally for thousands of years.3 In Britain doctors were able to prescribe cannabis as recently as 1971,4 and in a 1994 survey 74% of UK doctors ...
Nearly one-fifth of us will experience neuropathic pain during our lifetimes, with exaggerated pain sensations or pain in response to a stimulus that is not normally painful, such as a light touch. Now, researchers report that overly active immune cells in the spinal cord may be to blame.. Yves De Koninck at Laval University and Michael Salter at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and colleagues have linked two earlier observations together to map of at least one route to neuropathic pain. The new data may suggest novel ways to treat the problem.. Normal pain is triggered by a stimulus somewhere in the body. The signal then passes through the spinal cord, where initial processing occurs, and travels to the brain, where it is perceived as pain. Any disruption along the way can lead to neuropathic pain, including abnormal processing of information from nonpainful stimuli.. In 2003, De Konincks team identified a key mechanism in the spinal cord that leads to neuropathic pain. In healthy ...

To date, data have been published about economic evaluation of oral therapies for peripheral NeP disorders, including modelling the cost-effectiveness of gabapentin and PGB [33-37]. However, data presented here are the first to evaluate the effect of PGB on cost and consequences of the treatment of NeP of peripheral origin in routine clinical practice conditions ("the Real World") and, thus, complementing the findings from previous clinical trial data. PGB, monotherapy and add-on therapy, administered at doses within the therapeutically recommended range, produced a marked reduction of pain (over 50%). Percentage of patient responders were very similar to those reported in published clinical trials of PGB in patients with diabetic neuropathy [38-40], and post-herpetic neuralgia [21-23, 41]. Variability in mean PGB doses observed in both PGB groups reinforces the absence, in clinical practice, of a single drug, or a single effective dose suitable for all NeP patients. This point is supported by ...

Todays post from zen-haven.com (see link below) is a realistic look at the reality of neuropathic pain but becomes subjective when considering the use of ketamine to control it. Ketamine has a bad rap. Its widely known as a party drug and is on many countries banned lists. It is used under controlled conditions in hospital situations after surgery but many mainstream doctors will raise their eyebrows at the idea of it as a neuropathic pain controller. Yet the article is correct in that theoretically, the way ketamine works it could well help reduce chronic nerve pain. The suggestion is that a hospital administered infusion may give reasonably long lasting relief but the conclusion that this will then give the nervous system time to repair itself is optimistic at best. The drug may well play a part in reducing neuropathic pain but the nerve damage cant logically be repaired due to its administration - so far, no drug can repair nerve damage. ...
The peripheral nerve system includes all the nerves that lead to and from the spinal cord. These nerves transmit pain signals to the brain. If theyre injured, neuropathic pain may develop-pain caused by injury to the nerves themselves. You may also hear the term peripheral neuropathy, which is another way to say neuropathic pain since it is damage to the peripheral nerve system.. Damage to the central nervous system can also trigger neuropathic pain.. Chronic neuropathic pain can be especially challenging to treat because it can be difficult to pinpoint where and how the nerves are damaged.. Nociceptive Pain ...
Chronic neuropathic pain is the net result of sensory input greater than the central inhibitory response" the uniqueness of chronic neuropathic pain is that its multiple etiologies share a common pathway."[5] The pain signal is processed via the dorsal horn of the spinal cord and transmitted in the central nervous system (CNS). After an injury, the healing process may be altered and actually increase rather than decrease the pain response. The development of dendritic growth (neuroplasticity) can increase the number of alternate neural pathways, which may actually increase the sensitivity to pain. These alternate pathways may have an accumulation of Na+ channels that become "leaky" and fire spontaneously or with very little provocation. "Neurons fire, or spontaneously produce electrical impulses on a regular basis" they may fire more or less slowly depending on whether or not they are excited or inhibited from firing by various types of chemicals called neurotransmitters" naturally occurring ...

NICE has back-tracked on controversial plans to demote pregabalin to second-line use after gabapentin in the management of neuropathic pain, it revealed in updated guidance released this week.
This information from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about medicines used to treat children and young people with neuropathic pain - pain caused by the nerves sending wrong signals to and from the brain. At GOSH, we mainly use amitriptyline, gabapentin and pregabalin, although other medicines are available. It is important that you should also read the information provided by the pain relief manufacturer, however our information relates specifically to children and young people and so may differ.

There are many causes of peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral nerve blocks for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy involve single or multiple injections of agents or a combination of agents including local anesthetics (such as bupivacaine or lidocaine) with or without corticosteroids into or near peripheral nerves or a nerve ganglion. A peripheral nerve block attempts to block or interrupt the conduction of pain signals to the brain and provide temporary or permanent relief from chronic neuropathic pain conditions. The peer-reviewed medical literature includes numerous systematic reviews and practice guidelines evaluating the use of nerve blocks for the diagnosis and treatment of neuralgias and neuropathic pain conditions supporting the use of peripheral nerve blockade. However, there is a paucity of well-designed trials and trials with adequate long-term follow-up addressing the use of peripheral nerve blocks for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy. There are many small case series studies ...

Effective treatment and management of neuropathic pain have been limited. Tetrahydrocannabinol:cannabidiol (THC:CBD) endocannabinoid buccomucosal spray (Sativex) is used in this case study to treat a patient suffering from neuropathic pain postparotidectomy. Furthermore, this particular case study shows that cannabinoids may be effective, at least in part, through a central mechanism to relieve allodynia. This patients allodynia was treated with Sativex buccomucosal spray. Six weeks later, the patient returned to the clinic with pain symptoms alleviated and transient decrease in alertness as the only side effect experienced. Two years since the initiation of Sativex treatment for allodynia, the patient has not experienced any relapse and is now working and fully functional. This case study demonstrates a successful off-label use of Sativex to treat post-parotidectomy neuropathic pain. Sativex is currently indicated in Canada to treat neuropathic pain only in multiple sclerosis and cancer. This ...
... is a distinct type of headache characterized by piercing, throbbing, or electric-shock-like chronic pain in the upper neck, back of the head, and behind the ears, usually on one side of the head. Typically, the pain of occipital neuralgia begins in the neck and then spreads upwards. Some individuals will also experience pain in the scalp, forehead, and behind the eyes. Their scalp may also be tender to the touch, and their eyes especially sensitive to light. The location of pain is related to the areas supplied by the greater and lesser occipital nerves, which run from the area where the spinal column meets the neck, up to the scalp at the back of the head. The pain is caused by irritation or injury to the nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles, compression of the nerve as it leaves the spine due to osteoarthritis, or tumors or other types of lesions in the neck.

I am a 35-year-old male, who had in 1986 a spinal cord injury at the level of Th12-L1. Fortunately there was just a period of few days, when I had a total paraplegia, after which I started to move my legs more and more. At present I walk with a crutch, but there are many things which do not go well. Among them the major problems are the bladder, which I do not feel at all and the pain along my left leg. Whereas I feel quite normally the right, I do not have a good perception of some areas of the left leg; the sensitivity lacks on the back side and down below the knee. Since the injury I have strong pain along this leg, it has increased and spread over the past years. Then I had learned that there is a great psychological component in this matter, I can live better when I do not care about pain. Sometimes it begins when the weather is changing, other times it is due to a wrong position of sitting (bad circulation), or when I get angry! A good thing is that the frequency of hard pain problems is ...

Neuropathic pain (NP) is a complex condition caused by a lesion of the central nervous system. It may result from various causes that affect the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves, including diabetic neuropathy, cancer-related neuropathic pain, postherpetic neuralgia, HIV-related neuropathy, spinal cord injury, trigeminal neuralgia and other pain syndromes.
In modern days, human beings are facing different types of body pain. Neuropathic pain is a type of pain, which has been found increasingly among men and women these days. A person will feel this pain, when the special nerve ending sends pain signals to the brain and spinal cord, upon sensing that there is something faulty in his/her body. This type of pain is very awful and difficult to treat. The neuropathic pain is mainly caused due to the nerve damage. You may try Nerve Renew capsules to cure this condition. You can read reviews of Nerve Renew to find out whether these capsules are ideal for you or not. If you are looking for broader information on health matters, you may visit https://medlineplus.gov/..

Neuropathic pain is induced by the injury to nervous systems and characterized by hyperalgesia, allodynia and spontaneous pain. The underlying mechanisms include peripheral and central sensitization resulted from neuronal hyperexcitability. A number of ion channels are considered to contribute to the neuronal hyperexcitability. Here, we particularly concentrate on an interesting ion channel, hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide gated (HCN) channels. We overview its biophysical properties, physiological functions, followed by focusing on the current progress in the study of its role in the development of neuropathic pain. We attempt to provide a comprehensive review of the potential valuable target, HCN channels, in the treatment of neuropathic pain. ...
OBJECTIVE: The N-methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptor has been proposed as a primary target for the treatment of neuropathic pain. The aim of the present study was to perform a meta-analysis evaluating the effects of (individual) NMDA receptor antagonists on neuropathic pain, and the response (sensitivity) of individual neuropathic pain disorders to NMDA receptor antagonist therapy.

Chronic pain presents a widespread and intractable medical problem. While numerous pharmaceuticals are used to treat chronic pain, drugs that are safe for extended use and highly effective at treating the most severe pain do not yet exist. Chronic pain resulting from nervous system injury (neuropathic pain) is common in conditions ranging from multiple sclerosis to HIV-1 infection to type II diabetes. Inflammation caused by neuropathy is believed to contribute to the generation and maintenance of neuropathic pain. Chemokines are key inflammatory mediators, several of which (MCP-1, RANTES, MIP-1α, fractalkine, SDF-1 among others) have been linked to chronic, neuropathic pain in both human conditions and animal models. The important roles chemokines play in inflammation and pain make them an attractive therapeutic target. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors are a family of nuclear receptors known for their roles in metabolism. Recent research has revealed that PPARs also play a role in
Neuralgias are disorders of the cranial nerves which result in intensely painful episodes for those affected. Neuralgias are associated with all of the cranial nerves: trigeminal neuralgia in the facial area, glossopharyngeal neuralgia in the throat, occipital neuralgia in the rear and side of the head, geniculate neuralgia in the ear, vegal neuralgia in the jaw, etc. Shingles, or post-herpetic neuralgia, can occur lower on the body (the ribcage, for instance), and is also accompanied by intense pain. This condition has led to the suggestion that the cranial neuralgias might be associated with herpes simplex infections of the nerves. Neuralgias are extremely painful; trigeminal neuralgia (tic doloroux) is thought to be the most painful condition known. Fortunately, there are avenues of treatment available. The most common drug treatment is carbamazepine (tegretol). Neurontin is also used. In cases where this does not work, and breakthrough pain cannot be controlled, microsurgery can be performed.
Postherpetic neuralgia: epidemiology, pathophysiology, and pain management pharmacology Theresa Mallick-Searle,1 Brett Snodgrass,2 Jeannine M Brant,3 1Pain Management Center, Stanford Health Care, Redwood City, CA, 2LifeLinc Pain Centers, Cordova, TN, 3Billings Clinic, Billings, MT, USA Abstract: Herpes zoster, also known as shingles, is a distinctive clinical condition caused by the reactivation of latent varicella zoster (chickenpox) virus following an initial infection. Approximately 1 million cases of herpes zoster occur annually in the US, and one in every three people develops herpes zoster during their lifetime. Postherpetic neuralgia is a neuropathic pain syndrome characterized by pain that persists for months to years after resolution of the herpes zoster rash. It stems from damage to peripheral and central neurons that may be a byproduct of the immune/inflammatory response accompanying varicella zoster virus reactivation. Patients with postherpetic neuralgia report decreased quality of life

What is pudendal neuralgia?. Pudendal neuralgia is a rare problem with the pudendal nerve that can affect both men and women. The pudendal nerve runs through your pelvic region, including your genitals, urethra, anus, and perineum. Your perineum is the area between your anus and genitals. The condition is also known as pudendal neuropathy, pudendal nerve entrapment, cyclists syndrome, pudendal canal syndrome, or Alcocks syndrome. Pudendal neuralgia can cause pain, especially when you sit. Men with pudendal neuralgia may have pain in the buttocks, scrotum, penis, and perineum. Women with pudendal neuralgia may have pain in their buttocks, vulva, urethra, and perineum.. For more information, talk to your doctor.. ...
Shingles (herpes zoster) is a debilitating, painful skin rash acquired in adulthood. After a child has been exposed to the chickenpox virus, the virus remains latent in the body. The varicella virus can later be reactivated as shingles later in life. If the varicella virus infects the nerve cells, it can cause an extremely painful condition called postherpetic neuralgia. Nerve pain caused by postherpetic neuralgia can last for months and in some cases even years. Approximately 200,000 adult Americans are afflicted with postherpetic neuralgia every year.. There is scientific evidence that adults who are regularly exposed to children infected with the chickenpox virus have increased protection against the shingles (Thomas). Thus, natural exposure to the chickenpox virus boosts adults immunity against shingles, acting like a natural shingles vaccine. Since chickenpox infection rates are now so low in Canada and the US, chances of adult exposure to the virus is also low, thus scientists expect an ...
