Pyorrhoea as cause of pyrexia. (1/11014)

Three patients with fever and malaise, one of whom also had joint pains, were extensively investigated before their condition was attributed to dental sepsis. Each patient recovered fully after appropriate dental treatment. Dental sepsis should be added to the list of possible causes of pyrexia of undetermined origin, and a routine dental examination should be carried out in each case.  (+info)

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and quality of life. (2/11014)

The quality of life (QOL) of 79 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and 37 non-diabetic controls was assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). The NHP consists of six domains assessing energy, sleep, pain, physical mobility, emotional reactions and social isolation. Symptomatic diabetic neuropathy was present in 41 of the patients. The neuropathy patients had significantly higher scores (impaired QOL) in 5/6 NHP domains than either the other diabetic patients (p < 0.01) or the non-diabetic (p < 0.001) controls. These were: emotional reaction, energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep. The diabetic patients without neuropathy also had significantly impaired QOL for 4/6 NHP domains compared with the non-diabetic control group (p < 0.05) (energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep). This quantification of the detrimental effect on QOL of diabetes, and in particular of chronic symptomatic peripheral diabetic neuropathy, emphasizes the need for further research into effective management of these patients.  (+info)

Relative efficacy of 32P and 89Sr in palliation in skeletal metastases. (3/11014)

32p and 89Sr have been shown to produce significant pain relief in patients with skeletal metastases from advanced cancer. Clinically significant pancytopenia has not been reported in doses up to 12 mCi (444 MBq) of either radionuclide. To date, no reports comparing the relative efficacy and toxicity of the two radionuclides in comparable patient populations have been available. Although a cure has not been reported, both treatments have achieved substantial pain relief. However, several studies have used semiquantitative measures such as "slight," "fair," "partial" and "dramatic" responses, which lend themselves to subjective bias. This report examines the responses to treatment with 32P or 89Sr by attempting a quantification of pain relief and quality of life using the patients as their own controls and compares toxicity in terms of hematological parameters. METHODS: Thirty-one patients with skeletal metastases were treated for pain relief with either 32P (16 patients) or 89Sr (15 patients). Inclusion criteria were pain from bone scan-positive sites above a subjective score of 5 of 10 despite analgesic therapy with narcotic or non-narcotic medication, limitation of movement related to the performance of routine daily activity and a predicted life expectancy of at least 4 mo. The patients had not had chemotherapy or radiotherapy during the previous 6 wk and had normal serum creatinine, white cell and platelet counts. 32P was given orally as a 12 mCi dose, and 89Sr was given intravenously as a 4 mCi (148 MBq) dose. The patients were monitored for 4 mo. RESULTS: Complete absence of pain was seen in 7 of 16 patients who were given 32P and in 7 of 15 patients who were given 89Sr. Pain scores fell by at least 50% of the pretreatment score in 14 of 16 patients who were given 32P and 14 of 15 patients who were given 89Sr. Mean duration of pain relief was 9.6 wk with 32P and 10 wk with 89Sr. Analgesic scores fell along with the drop in pain scores. A fall in total white cell, absolute granulocyte and platelet counts occurred in all patients. Subnormal values of white cells and platelets were seen in 5 and 7 patients, respectively, with 32P, and in 0 and 4 patients, respectively, after 89Sr therapy. The decrease in platelet count (but not absolute granulocyte count) was statistically significant when 32P patients were compared with 89Sr patients. However, in no instance did the fall in blood counts require treatment. Absolute granulocyte counts did not fall below 1000 in any patient. There was no significant difference between the two treatments in terms of either efficacy or toxicity. CONCLUSION: No justification has been found in this study for the recommendation of 89Sr over the considerably less expensive oral 32P for the palliation of skeletal pain from metastases of advanced cancer.  (+info)

Use of positron emission tomography in evaluation of brachial plexopathy in breast cancer patients. (4/11014)

18-Fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) has previously been used successfully to image primary and metastatic breast cancer. In this pilot study, 19 breast cancer patients with symptoms/signs referrable to the brachial plexus were evaluated with 18FDG-PET. In 11 cases computerized tomography (CT) scanning was also performed. Of the 19 patients referred for PET study, 14 had abnormal uptake of 18FDG in the region of the symptomatic plexus. Four patients had normal PET studies and one had increased FDG uptake in the chest wall that accounted for her axillary pain. CT scans were performed in 9 of the 14 patients who had positive brachial plexus PET studies; six of these were either normal or showed no clear evidence of recurrent disease, while three CTs demonstrated clear brachial plexus involvement. Of two of the four patients with normal PET studies, one has had complete resolution of symptoms untreated while the other was found to have cervical disc herniation on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The remaining two patients almost certainly had radiation-induced plexopathy and had normal CT, MRI and PET study. These data suggest that 18FDG-PET scanning is a useful tool in evaluation of patients with suspected metastatic plexopathy, particularly if other imaging studies are normal. It may also be useful in distinguishing between radiation-induced and metastatic plexopathy.  (+info)

Intensive weekly chemotherapy is not effective in advanced pancreatic cancer patients: a report from the Italian Group for the Study of Digestive Tract Cancer (GISCAD). (5/11014)

Twenty-two patients, with locally advanced unresectable and/or metastatic pancreatic carcinoma, received weekly administration of cisplatin 40 mg m(-2), 5-fluorouracil 500 mg m(-2), epidoxorubicin 35 mg m(-2), 6S stereoisomer of leucovorin 250 mg m(-2) and glutathione 1.5 mg m(-2), supported by a daily administration of lenograstim at a dose of 5 microg kg(-1). Nineteen patients were men and three were women. Median age was 63 years (range 47-70). At study entry, pain was present in 15 out of 22 patients (68%) with a mean value of Scott-Huskisson scale of 27.6+/-23.8, whereas a weight loss >10% was present in 15 patients. After eight weekly treatments, three partial responses were achieved for a response rate of 13% (95% CI 0-26%), five patients had stable disease and 14 progressed on therapy. Pain was present in 9 out of 22 patients (40%) with a mean value of Scott-Huskisson scale of 12.3+/-18.4. Eight patients (36%) (three partial response and five stable disease) had a positive weight change. Toxicity was mild: WHO grade III or IV toxicity was recorded in terms of anaemia in 7 out of 188 cycles (3.7%), of neutropenia in 9 out of 188 cycles (4.7%) and of thrombocytopenia in 3 out of 188 cycles (1.5%). Median survival of all patients was 6 months. The outcome of this intensive chemotherapy regimen does not support its use in pancreatic cancer.  (+info)

Paracrine changes in the peritoneal environment of women with endometriosis. (6/11014)

During the past decade, macrophage-derived substances such as prostanoids, cytokines, growth factors and angiogenic factors have been detected in the peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis. In particular, growth-promoting and angiogenic factors are considered to be substantially involved in the pathogenesis of endometriosis. In this study, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1), substances recently detected in the peritoneal fluid of women with endometriosis, were assessed with regard to their concentrations in different stages of endometriosis and changes of the peritoneal paracrine activity after medical treatment with a gonadotrophin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa). Peritoneal fluid was obtained from patients with endometriosis during laparoscopy before and after a 4-month treatment with a GnRHa. VEGF, TGF-beta and ICAM-1 could be detected in all women presenting with various stages of active endometriosis. After GnRHa therapy, all patients showed significant decreases in mean concentrations of VEGF (194+/-77 pg/ml), TGF-beta (902+/-273 pg/ml) and ICAM-1 (157+/-52 ng/ml). Patients with stage III and IV endometriosis (according to the rAFS score) had much higher concentrations of VEGF and TGF-beta before treatment compared with those patients with mild endometriosis (rAFS stages I and II). The most striking decrease in concentration was for TGF-beta, from 902 pg/ml before to 273 pg/ml after therapy. These results indicate an important role for paracrine activity in the establishment and maintenance of endometriosis. Indeed, treatment with a GnRHa may reduce paracrine activity in the peritoneal cavity via hypo-oestrogenism and provide proof of successful therapy.  (+info)

Gabapentin suppresses ectopic nerve discharges and reverses allodynia in neuropathic rats. (7/11014)

Repetitive ectopic discharges from injured afferent nerves play an important role in initiation and maintenance of neuropathic pain. Gabapentin is effective for treatment of neuropathic pain but the sites and mechanisms of its antinociceptive actions remain uncertain. In the present study, we tested a hypothesis that therapeutic doses of gabapentin suppress ectopic afferent discharge activity generated from injured peripheral nerves. Mechanical allodynia, induced by partial ligation of the sciatic nerve in rats, was determined by application of von Frey filaments to the hindpaw. Single-unit afferent nerve activity was recorded proximal to the ligated sciatic nerve site. Intravenous gabapentin, in a range of 30 to 90 mg/kg, significantly attenuated allodynia in nerve-injured rats. Furthermore, gabapentin, in the same therapeutic dose range, dose-dependently inhibited the ectopic discharge activity of 15 injured sciatic afferent nerve fibers through an action on impulse generation. However, the conduction velocity and responses of 12 normal afferent fibers to mechanical stimulation were not affected by gabapentin. Therefore, this study provides electrophysiological evidence that gabapentin is capable of suppressing the ectopic discharge activity from injured peripheral nerves. This action may contribute, at least in part, to the antiallodynic effect of gabapentin on neuropathic pain.  (+info)

The Sock Test for evaluating activity limitation in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (8/11014)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Assessment within rehabilitation often must reflect patients' perceived functional problems and provide information on whether these problems are caused by impairments of the musculoskeletal system. Such capabilities were examined in a new functional test, the Sock Test, simulating the activity of putting on a sock. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Intertester reliability was examined in 21 patients. Concurrent validity, responsiveness, and predictive validity were examined in a sample of 337 patients and in subgroups of this sample. RESULTS: Intertester reliability was acceptable. Sock Test scores were related to concurrent reports of activity limitation in dressing activities. Scores also reflected questionnaire-derived reports of problems in a broad range of activities of daily living and pain and were responsive to change over time. Increases in age and body mass index increased the likelihood of Sock Test scores indicating activity limitation. Pretest scores were predictive of perceived difficulties in dressing activities after 1 year. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: Sock Test scores reflect perceived activity limitations and restrictions of the musculoskeletal system.  (+info)

Descending pain inhibition is a powerful endogenous pain control system that originates in the brainstem and descends to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. There, it inhibits spinal nociception by releasing serotonin and noradrenalin and hence reduces nociceptive input to the brain, which in turn leads to reduced pain sensation. Cognitive and emotional processes modulate the activity of descending pain inhibition, and thus also pain sensation.. Patients with chronic pain exhibit impaired descending pain inhibition, which might be one reason for the persistence of pain. Improving descending pain inhibition in patients with chronic pain is therefore a promising target for pain therapy.. We previously developed a feedback training in which healthy subjects learned control over their spinal nociception, by using cognitive-emotional strategies and receiving visual feedback about their nociceptive flexor reflex (RIII reflex), a measure of spinal nociception. Likely, this spinal nociception control ...

Dr. Beth: Many chronic pain conditions, such as autoimmune conditions, migraine and fibromyalgia, are up to 10 times more common in women. So women are simply more likely to acquire chronic pain than men.. Once women have chronic pain, they suffer more from it than men. Research shows women experience pain more frequently, severely, and for a longer duration than men do.. There are many reasons why women have more pain than men. Sex/gender differences in hormones, pain processing, and psychological factors known to influence pain (such as cognition, anxiety, depression and history of abuse) are just a few known reasons.. Pain becomes more common as we age and menopause is known to worsen chronic pain due to hormonal changes. Also, women live longer than men and thus have more years of life to experience pain!. There is growing need to better understand pain in women and how to best treat it. I believe the future of the field of pain medicine is sex-specific pain treatment (medical and ...

Methods In a population based study participants pain reports were coded and those free of CWP (ACR criteria: pain lasting ≥3 months in the axial skeleton and contralateral body quadrants) identified. Participants also completed the Douleur Neuropathique 4 (DN4) (which has 7 sensory descriptors of pain (burning, painful cold, electric shocks, tingling, pins and needles, itching, and numbness), scores ≥3 indicating NP); demographics (date of birth, sex, English Index of Multiple Deprivation, occupational status); Hospital Anxiety and Depression (HAD) scale; Estimation of Sleep Problem Scale (ESPS); self-reported pain medications (summed to give a total count); and signed consent. Participants were classified as no pain, having some pain that wasnt neuropathic (NP-; DN4 score ,3), or neuropathic pain (NP+; DN4 score ≥3). A follow-up questionnaire mailed 12 months later gathered pain data using the methods in the baseline survey. Based upon their pain reports at follow up participants were ...

Most cancer patients experience severe pain during their disease course, and the management of cancer pain is a major challenge for patients and the healthcare team. Many diverse translational models of cancer pain in recent years have improved our understanding of cancer-related pain. Cancer and associated cells in the cancer microenvironment may release various peripheral mediators, including ATP, formaldehyde, protons, proteases, endothelin, bradykinin, TNF and NGF, that result in the activation and/or sensitization of peripheral and central neurons, that contribute to the clinical manifestations of cancer-related pain. Identification of these mediators and the peripheral and central mechanisms by which they contribute to cancer-related pain may provide novel therapeutic targets to alleviate cancer patient suffering.

Chronic pain is generally regarded as being divided into two mutually exclusive pain mechanisms: nociceptive and neuropathic. Recently, this dichotomous approach has been questioned and a model of chronic pain being more or less neuropathic has been suggested. To test whether such a spectrum exists, we examined responses by patients with chronic pain to validated neuropathic pain assessment tools and compared these with ratings of certainty about the neuropathic origin of pain by their specialist pain physicians. We examined 200 patients (100 each with nociceptive and neuropathic pain) and administered the self-complete Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs (S-LANSS score) and the Neuropathic Pain Scale (NPS). Clinicians were asked to rate their certainty of the presence of neuropathic pain mechanisms on a 100 mm visual analogue scale (VAS) (0 = not at all neuropathic in origin to 100 = completely neuropathic in origin). The whole sample was divided into tertiles based on ...
to the editor: I was pleased to read the article1 on management of nonmalignant pain. The undertreatment of pain is a widespread issue in the United States, and helping to educate practicing family physicians in the most current pain management techniques is an important, even critical, goal.. I was disappointed, however, by the relative lack of information in the article on the two newest classes of oral analgesics: (1) tramadol (Ultram) and (2) cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, which represent a new type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).. Tramadol has been available in the United States for five years. It is effective not only for an acute episode of neuropathic pain (as suggested in the article), but also for chronic neuropathic pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis pain2 and chronic low back pain.3 Tramadol may be most notable for what it is not-tramadol is not an NSAID, nor is it a typical opioid. Tramadol has a dual mechanism of action: it acts centrally at ...

The Pain Patient Pain sensation is highly subjective, and individual pain threshold levels differ. Accurate assessment generally requires understanding the patients pain history, and many programs employ rating scales to measure pain intensity. Cognitive impairment or physical trauma, however, often stifles patients communication. Cognitively impaired patients may underreport pain frequency and intensity,8 leaving nonverbal cues, like labored breathing, aggression, and agitation, to be the first signs of pain.9 Pain oscillates, especially at night. Caregivers must be especially vigilant for nonverbal cues and document carefully, or oscillations may be confused with treatment response. Treatment Approaches Although no ideal agent exists, todays pain treatments include a range of interventions and strategies. Certified pain specialist and geriatric psychiatrist Howard Cohen, MD, director of Dallas Mind/Body Medicine, indicates, "Rational polypharmacy is the rule of thumb when treating chronic ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Association between Widespread Pain Scores and Functional Impairment and Health-Related Quality of Life in Clinical Samples of Children. AU - Rabbitts, Jennifer A.. AU - Holley, Amy. AU - Groenewald, Cornelius B.. AU - Palermo, Tonya M.. PY - 2016/6/1. Y1 - 2016/6/1. N2 - Pain involving several body regions generally represents nervous system pathophysiology shifting from predominantly peripheral to more central. In adults, higher widespread pain scores are clinically meaningful and confer risk for poor response to treatment. It is unknown whether widespread pain is similarly important in children. To address this gap, we conducted an observational study examining 1) associations between widespread pain and functional impairment and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in clinical pediatric samples, and 2) associations among sociodemographic factors and pain catastrophizing with widespread pain scores. Participants were 166 children aged 10 to 18 years from 3 samples (acute ...
Needle fear is a common problem in children undergoing immunization. To ensure that the individual childs needs are met during a painful procedure it would be beneficial to be able to predict whether there is a need for extra support. The self-reporting instrument facial affective scale (FAS) could have potential for this purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the FAS can predict pain unpleasantness in girls undergoing immunization. Girls, aged 11-12 years, reported their expected pain unpleasantness on the FAS at least two weeks before and then experienced pain unpleasantness immediately before each vaccination. The experienced pain unpleasantness during the vaccination was also reported immediately after each immunization. The level of anxiety was similarly assessed during each vaccination and supplemented with stress measures in relation to the procedure in order to assess and evaluate concurrent validity. The results show that the FAS is valid to predict pain unpleasantness ...
Foreman: Absolutely unaddressed. I have two big infrastructure points in the book. One is that medical schools do not teach pain. There was a big study by Johns Hopkins in 2011. They did a survey of 117 medical schools and found that the median number of hours that students get learning about pain is nine. Thats over four years of medical school! Even veterinarians get more hours on pain education than doctors.. Next time you go to your doctor, ask in a friendly way how many hours of pain education did they get in medical school. A lot of them will say one or zero. They really dont know the neurobiology of it. They dont know the types of pain very well. They certainly dont know a lot about how acute pain transforms into chronic pain, which is a whole complicated nervous system problem. The nervous system essentially gets revved up and gets better and better at transmitting pain signals. So it becomes a self-fulfilling thing, a self-perpetuating problem. Its now known that cells derived from ...
This article focuses on patients accounts of chronic pain and the manner in which they communicate their experiences. The data have been generated through interviews with chronic pain patients undergoing treatment for their problems. The results show that patients develop a set of discursive markers by means of which they are able to make distinctions between different kinds of pain. These distinctions are made with respect to pain qualities and pain localizations in the body. Further, a majority of the patients report that one pain generally transforms into another. This subjectively perceived patterning we refer to as pain transformations and these, in turn, contain different pain phases. Most patients report pains as dynamic and tients report pains as dynamic and stable and consistent sensation. The results also show that some patients identify certain pain phases as precursors of more severe phases, and that they use this knowledge as a means for taking preventive actions. Since ...
About 39 million people in the U.S., or 19%, have persistent pain, and the incidence varies according to age and gender, according to a recent study. For the study, researchers at the Washington State University College of Nursing in Spokane defined persistent pain as frequent or constant pain lasting longer than three months.. Researchers used data from the 2010 Quality of Life Supplement of the National Health Interview Survey to calculate the prevalence of persistent pain. They also calculated persistent pain based on risk group, chronic condition and disability status. Findings were published in the October issue of The Journal of Pain, the peer-reviewed publication of the American Pain Society.. Results of the analysis showed about 19% of U.S. adults reported persistent pain in 2010, and older adults were more likely to experience persistent pain than younger adults. The age group at highest risk of persistent pain was adults ages 60-69, findings showed. Women also had a slightly higher ...

Pain is highly prevalent in nursing homes (NH) in several countries. Data about pain in Dutch NHs, where medical care is delivered by specifically trained NH-physicians, are not available. The aim of the present study is to determine prevalence, course, correlates, recognition and treatment of pain among Dutch NH-patients and to make a comparison with international data. The study-population consisted of 350 elderly NH-patients from 14 Dutch NHs. Pain (pain-subscale Nottingham Health Profile) and clinical characteristics (gender, age, cognition, depression, anxiety, sleeping problems, morbidity and functional status) were measured at baseline and at six months. Association of pain (baseline and six months) with clinical characteristics was assessed with chi-square and multiple logistic regression analyses. Pain-prevalence was 68.0% (40.5% mild pain symptoms, 27.5% serious pain symptoms). 80% of the patients with pain at baseline still experienced pain at six months. Serious pain at baseline was
The statistics are staggering. Despite the development of novel analgesics and the increasing awareness of the importance of adequately controlling pain from cancer or its treatment, up to 50% of patients undergoing treatment and between 70% and 90% of patients with advanced disease experience some degree of pain.1 Whats more, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 25% of all patients with cancer die with unrelieved pain.2. Although pain from cancer can usually be sufficiently controlled for most patients, the problem remains undertreated due to several factors. They include professional-related barriers, such as poor pain management education during medical training; underutilization of opioids; unavailability of analgesics from pharmacies; inadequate pain assessment; and patient-related barriers, such as adherence to analgesic regimens and cultural differences in response to pain.. Compounding these factors is the multidimensional nature of cancer pain, which can include physical, ...
Chronic pain affects all segments of the population, but of course older adults are more likely to be impacted, particularly by joint pain and other forms of musculoskeletal pain. In some studies, up to 50% of the older population reports clinically significant pain. Those numbers go even higher in nursing home residents where the reported rate is as high as 80%. So, given that the population as we know is aging, we need to be prepared to manage pain in this segment of the population.. When we think about how our bodies perceive pain and handle pain signals, we have one system to amplify pain to let us know and take corrective action, and balancing that, we have a pain inhibition system to diminish the amount of pain that we experience. In healthy, younger adults, those systems are in balance so that we can feel pain when we need to, but we can also control our own pain and move on with our lives. What we see with age is we get better at increasing the pain and we get worse at decreasing the ...
Unlike acute pain that is often associated with hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system (e.g., elevated blood pressure and respiratory rate, tachycardia, diaphoresis, dilated pupils), persistent pain frequently leads to gradually developing vegetative signs (e.g., listlessness, decreased appetite, loss of taste for food, weight loss, decreased libido, constipation, and sleep disturbance).3 Impaired ambulation may also be observed. In the elderly, psychosocial factors both affect pain and are affected by pain. 1 Patients with persistent pain may withdraw socially; psychologic and social impairment may be severe, resulting in virtual lack of function.3 Older adults with good coping strategies have been shown to have considerably lower pain and psychologic disability.1 Depression may occur in patients with persistent pain and is commonly associated with pain in the elderly; a significant correlation has been shown between pain and depression among nursing home residents.1,3 Untreated pain ...
Pain assessment is a complex task often hindered by subjectivity, an overabundance of measurement options, and communication barriers. Research has focused on psychosocial factors that affect pain assessment as well as the need for a more concise method by which to measure pain. This study explored a previously proposed method of pain assessment involving corneal drying, deemed the Blink Test, as a potential method of determining individual pain tolerance. A correlational analysis was used to determine the usefulness of the Blink Test by comparing how long individuals could keep their eyes open with their performance on the Cold Pressor Test, a previously validated pain tool only used in research. No significant correlations were found between performances on the Blink Test with those on the Cold Pressor Test, suggesting that it is not a useful pain assessment. Further, scores on a measure of hope were collected to explore previous research connecting the pain experience to psychological factors ...
DUBLIN, May 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Pain Therapeutics - Drugs, Markets and Companies" report from Jain PharmaBiotech has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.coms offering. This report describes the latest concepts of pathomechanisms of pain as a basis for management and development of new pharmacotherapies for pain. Major segments of the pain market are arthritis, neuropathic pain and cancer pain. Because pain is a subjective sensation, it is difficult to evaluate objectively in clinical trials. Various tools for pain measurement are described, including brain imaging.. Most of the currently used analgesic drugs fall into the categories of opioids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as COX-2 inhibitors. Non-opioid analgesics include ketamine, a N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonist. Adjuvant analgesics include antidepressants and antiepileptic drugs used for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Management of pain is multidisciplinary and includes both pharmacological and ...
This involves the use of an epidural catheter into space within the spinal cord. Pain medications are injected through the catheter post-surgery by the use of a PCA pump.It is an effective method of controlling pain. However, it is associated with some side effects such as nausea, numbness, vomiting, and headaches. Supraclavicular nerve blocks. They are used to control pain in extremities and they also involve the use of a catheter to administer pain medication. They work by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals to the brain. They are also associated with side effects such as nausea and vomiting. They can be used together with other oral pain medications and are very effective in relieving pain.. Intravenous analgesia. They involve the use of a computer programmed PCA pump that pushes medication directly into the blood veins relieving post-surgical shoulder pain.The patients can push the PCA pump by themselves and it is safe as only a limited amount of medication is allowed into the ...
BACKGROUND: Pain and sedation assessment are an important aspect of medical care of the hospitalized patient of all ages. Inadequate pain assessment contributes to sub-optimal pain management leading to morbidity and mortality. A clinically useable, reliable, and valid pain and sedation tool is needed to improve patient care and clinical outcomes. The currently available Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP) was created for procedural pain. The N-PASS: Neonatal Pain, Agitation and Sedation Scale was developed in response to the need for a clinically useable, consistent, age appropriate assessment and documentation methodology for ongoing infant pain and also sedation in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of Ronald McDonald Childrens Hospital of Loyola University Medical Center. OBJECTIVE: To establish the inter-rater and internal consistency as measures of reliability of the N-PASS instrument as well as the convergent and concurrent validity. DESIGN/METHODS: NICU nurses were trained in the ...

... 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:. ...

Do primary care physicians also misinterpret other patients pain levels? A recent study in the British Journal of General Practice examined the variation between practitioner and patient perceptions of pain intensity. Nearly 30 general practitioners in Finland and more than 700 of their patients seeking pain relief rated the patients perceived pain levels. A visual pain scale was utilized, with "no pain" at one extreme and the "worst imaginable pain" at the other; a person would make a mark on the scale at the place where they thought their pain level ranked. There was little similarity between doctor and patient ratings of an individuals pain. Patients rated their pain significantly higher than did their physicians in chronic-pain cases. In other words, people who experienced long-term suffering were in more pain than their doctors realized. In fact, general practitioners rated pain intensity significantly lower than the sufferer in almost 40% of cases, and higher in 30% of cases - usually ...
Pain at any age is a disruptive part of life and, as a member ages, is most likely to increase. Pain Assessment and Management is an important part of care for the elderly. In the older patient, the incidence and prevalence of certain pain syndromes may increase. While not all pain can be eliminated, most pain can be managed. Pain may be underreported and undertreated by your elderly patients because they believe that pain is a normal process of aging. Because your elderly patients may not volunteer information about living with chronic pain, it is important that you assess their pain at least annually.. Undertreating pain can severely affect your patients health and quality of life, and can lead to adverse physical and psychological outcomes for them and their families. The effects of chronic pain show up as depression or anxiety, and may create a sense of helplessness and even hopelessness. Be sure to document medical records carefully and include the date of your pain assessment exam. ...
For those who live every day with chronic pain, the simplest activity can be torturous. There are places that can help when it feels that there is nowhere to turn. The purpose of the pain management clinic is to give back some part of a patients life that was stolen by uncontrollable pain. Not every doctor is a specialist in the treatment of pain, particularly chronic pain. Referrals arent always necessary to be seen by a specialist, but it is always best to make sure before making an appointment. Confirm the type of coverage an insurance policy provides, but its important to know pain can be managed.. Various conditions can result in the need for specialty care. Physicians who havent been trained to care for them do not always understand neurological and physiological pain conditions. Chronic pain is defined as pain that routine treatment and care has not helped for six months or longer. The pain may come and go. It may be piercing and sharp or dull and achy. When these pain signals remain ...
Pain classification is important because treatment for each type of pain is unique. Pain management specialists use multimodal treatments. This means that we use many different types of medications and procedures to maximize pain control and minimize side effects. Opioid medications such as morphine are the mainstay of management. However we try to minimise use of opioids because of side effects including nausea vomiting constipation sleepiness and sometimes inadequate pain control. Opioids control your pain well when remaining motionless but as soon as you move they do not help. For movement-evoked pain we use medications such as Tylenol and ibuprofen. One of the most effective ways to control pain is with a nerve block. Nerve blocks use local anaesthetics numbing medicine to put a specific part of your body to sleep (like your right arm). Depending on the type of nerve block this nerve sleep can last anywhere from hours to days. For neuropathic pain we use medications such as neurontin to ...
Pain palliation is the proportion of patients showing a two-point reduction in the Worst Pain score (WPS) maintained for two consecutive assessments with no increase in analgesic use. Increase in analgesic use is defined as an increase in Analgesic code Level to 2 (weak opioid) or 3 (strong opioid). Patients will be classified as pain palliated or not palliated. Patients with a WPS of 0 will be defined as stable if their WPS remains 0 for Weeks 7 and 10 with no increase in analgesic use, but they will not be categorized as responders. Pain palliation response is measured by BPI short form that has the following: yes/no question about pain today; 4 pain rating questions (worst pain, least pain, average pain, and current pain); pain medications and pain relief; 7 items addressing effect of pain on functioning. For patients who continue to receive treatment beyond 12 treatment cycles, the Worst Pain item is measured by Pain Medication Log and Pain ...

Pain is an unpleasant feeling that lets you know that something may be wrong. It is one of the bodys warning signals indicating that a problem needs attention.. Pain starts in receptor nerve cells located beneath the skin and in organs throughout the body.. When there is an illness, injury, or other type of problem, these receptor cells send messages along nerve pathways to the spinal cord, which then carries the message to the brain.. Pain medications work by reducing or blocking these messages before they reach the brain.. Pain can be anything from a slight nuisance, such as a mild headache, to something excruciating and emergent, such as the chest pain that accompanies a heart attack.. Back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitation in people younger than 45 years old.. Cancer pain affects the majority of patients in intermediate or advanced stages of cancer. About 1.4 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in the US.. Arthritis pain affects nearly 47 million ...

The character of the pain associated with this syndrome differs widely among individuals partly because of the variety of potential causes. Central pain syndrome may affect a large portion of the body or may be more restricted to specific areas, such as hands or feet. The extent of pain is usually related to the cause of the CNS injury or damage. Pain is typically constant, may be moderate to severe in intensity, and is often made worse by touch, movement, emotions, and temperature changes, usually cold temperatures. Individuals experience one or more types of pain sensations, the most prominent being burning. Mingled with the burning may be sensations of "pins and needles;" pressing, lacerating, or aching pain; and brief, intolerable bursts of sharp pain similar to the pain caused by a dental probe on an exposed nerve.. Individuals may have numbness in the areas affected by the pain. The burning and loss of touch sensations are usually most severe on the distant parts of the body, such as the ...
Participants will be provided with forms by site coordinators and will be provided in person instruction on how to fill out the pain intensity scores, the pain interference scores, the pain medication diary, and the final pain relief assessment form.. Medications will be identified only by number and will be available to the participant after standard instruction on use of medications is provided by the surgeon or research associate. Patients will be instructed - verbally and written - to take the study medication (2 capsules per dose) up to four times per day as needed for pain for 1 week or until pain free.. If patients experience intolerable discomfort, they will be able to contact personnel (24 hours on call) associated with the study to receive an alternate analgesic. The surgeon will determine if the patient is taking the maximum dose and then prescribe additional study drug or a non-study drug as an alternative. If the patient receives pain medication outside of the study protocol, the ...
Cancer-related pain is caused by several different factors; in most cases it is directly related to the cancer itself and the location of the tumor(s). As a tumor grows, it can press on internal organs, tissues and joints, creating pressure that ultimately leads to pain in that specific area. Pain can also be caused by cancer that has spread to bone. This pain is typically felt in the back, pelvis and hips, as these bones are the most common sites of cancer spread (metastasis). Cancer-related pain may be felt in parts of the body other than where the primary tumor is located, especially in advanced disease.. In addition to cancer-specific pain, diagnostic procedures and treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may cause different types of pain. After surgery, pain is usually felt in the area of the surgery. This pain will gradually lessen as the body heals and recovers. The pain or discomfort caused by chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be mild to severe, but often ...
I just realized something that probably was obvious to many people: the opposite of the pleasant isnt the painful, but the unpleasant. Great physical effort can be painful, but it could also just be effortful and unpleasant (though there can also be a pleasure mixed with the unpleasantness). An even clearer case is distasteful food, which is unpleasant but not painful to eat.. While it would sound wimpy to talk about "the problem of the unpleasant" in place of "the problem of pain", pain isnt in general worse than the non-painfully unpleasant. For instance, there are distasteful foods to which I would prefer the pain of a flu shot.. It may be that among physically unpleasant events, pains monopolize the top of the unpleasantness hierarchy (test case: extreme bitterness-maybe thats actually painful?). So while some instances of non-painful physical unpleasantness are worse than some instances of painful physical unpleasantness, some instances of physical pain are worse than any non-painful ...

[Spring 2018 / HTP101-FA] When we were teenagers and in our 20s, we had energy at its peak. However, as we reach our 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, we find that we dont feel as vigorous as before. Most of us start getting aches and pains. Pain is normally caused by injury or illness, but they can also be caused by bad eating or sleeping habits, lack of exercise or incorrect posture. In this one-day workshop, we will learn about the mechanisms of joints, muscles and nerves and their relation to the aches and pains we or our loved ones experience. We will also discuss symptoms and types of pain, learn about specific disorders related to the weakening of these parts of the body (Hemiplegia or Parkinsons) and discuss practical care for loved ones with disability, movement and balance disorders. Taking a practical approach through lectures, slide presentations and hands-on tips and exercises (self-care message, foot muscle training and how to choose appropriate footwear and assistive devices), this one-day

We try to combine studies in pain epidemiology, experimental pain and clinical pain research. Topics of special interest are the individual difference in pain sensitivity, pain pharmacology and mechanisms in general, mechanisms of neuropathic pain, and mechanisms involved the transition from acute to chronic pain.. These topics are studied in a variety of models, from large community-based studies to smaller studies in the perioperative period and in experimental human models. ...
Referred pain" can be a perplexing phenomenon for anyone who experiences it. Referred pain is what happens when you feel pain in an area of your body that is not actually the original source of the pain signals. The most common example of referred pain is when pain is felt in the left arm, neck or jaw of a person suffering a heart attack, while they often have no feelings of pain in the chest area itself.. Its important to note that referred pain is different from radiating pain, in which the pain felt in one area travels down a nerve, causing pain along the length of the nerve. This is often the case with sciatica, where pain originates in the lower back and radiates down the leg. Researchers are still not exactly sure what causes referred pain. Some experts believe that it is due to a mix-up in nerve messaging. The central nervous system (CNS) is constantly receiving a barrage of different messages from different parts of the body. These messages may get mixed up somewhere along the path ...
Social influences can profoundly modulate pain in both humans and rodents. A handful of studies have shown that when two animals experience the same pain stimulus while housed together, exposure to one another causes each animal to have a greater pain response than if they were housed alone. Now, new research shows that not only can social factors enhance pain in the setting of injury or noxious stimulation, but they can also cause pain in control mice-and without the need for the animals to ever interact.
This represents the first study using techniques of objective analysis to demonstrate an association between HAPPWs and pain in a subset of patients with IBS studied under physiologic conditions. The study authors found that for 4 of 7 patients reporting pain on day 2, the SAP was , 95%. HAPPWs that were associated with episodes of abdominal pain originated at a more proximal level (P = .026) and occurred earlier (P = .007) than HAPPWs that were not associated with pain. The duration of a pain period was correlated with the number of pain-related HAPPWs occurring in that period (r = 0.906, P = .013). Two of the 10 control patients experienced pain, but these pain episodes were not related to occurrence of HAPPWs ...
Worldwide, acute, and chronic pain affects 20% of the adult population and represents an enormous financial and emotional burden. Using genome-wide neuronal-specific RNAi knockdown in Drosophila, we report a global screen for an innate behavior and identify hundreds of genes implicated in heat nociception, including the alpha2delta family calcium channel subunit straightjacket (stj). Mice mutant for the stj ortholog CACNA2D3 (alpha2delta3) also exhibit impaired behavioral heat pain sensitivity. In addition, in humans, alpha2delta3 SNP variants associate with reduced sensitivity to acute noxious heat and chronic back pain. Functional imaging in alpha2delta3 mutant mice revealed impaired transmission of thermal pain-evoked signals from the thalamus to higher-order pain centers. Intriguingly, in alpha2delta3 mutant mice, thermal pain and tactile stimulation triggered strong cross-activation, or synesthesia, of brain regions involved in vision, olfaction, and hearing.

Implementing a recall paradigm without hypnosis, we use functional MRI (fMRI) to explore and compare nociceptive and centrally-driven pain experiences. We posit that a trace of a recent nociceptive event can be used to create sensory-re-experiencing of pain that can be qualified in terms of intensity and vividness. Fifteen healthy volunteers received three levels of thermal stimuli (warm, low pain and high pain) and subsequently were asked to recall and then rate this experience. Neuroimaging results reveal that recalling a previous sensory experience activates an extensive network of classical pain processing structures except the contralateral posterior insular cortex. Nociceptive-specific activation of this structure and the rated intensity difference between physical and recalled pain events allow us to investigate the link between the quality of the original nociceptive stimulus and the mental trace, as well as the differences between the accompanying neural responses. Additionally, by
Types of stimuli that excite the pain receptors include mechanical forces, such as stretching, tearing or fracturing of tissues; thermal stimuli, such as cold or heat; and chemical substances. The chemical substances that stimulate pain receptors are tiny molecules produced in the body when tissues are damaged or inflamed. They include chemicals like serotonin, histamine, prostaglandins, bradykinin, and various enzymes. These chemicals are all mediators of inflammation in the body.. Once a pain receptor is stimulated, information on the pain is transported back to the brain, where the sensation is perceived. Both fast and slow pain fibers exist in the cats body. The fast transmission of pain signals allows the animal to be rapidly warned about impending damage to some area of the body, and allows them to react quickly. The slow transmission of pain information allows the pain sensation to continue and provides a mechanism for chronic pain to develop.. Pain may be perceived only at the site of ...
Pain is a highly complex and subjective experience that is not linearly related to the nociceptive input. What is clear from anecdotal reports over the centuries and more recently from animal and human experimentation is that nociceptive information processing and consequent pain perception is subject to significant pro- and anti-nociceptive modulations. These modulations can be initiated reflexively or by contextual manipulations of the pain experience including cognitive and emotional factors. This provides a necessary survival function since it allows the pain experience to be altered according to the situation rather than having pain always dominate. The so-called descending pain modulatory network involving predominantly medial and frontal cortical areas, in combination with specific subcortical and brain stem nuclei appears to be one key system for the endogenous modulation of pain. Furthermore, recent findings from functional and anatomical neuroimaging support the notion that an altered

How Scar Tissue Affects Pain and Performance by Justin Price explains how scar tissue is formed, how it affects pain and performance and some simple and effective techniques to help yourself and your
There is no one best way to treat pain associated with arthritis, but I always recommend starting with very simple things with little known bad effect and then progressing onward to more complex treatments. The simplest things are over the counter analgesics, nonsteroidals, then progressing to muscle relaxants, some physical therapy, heat for chronic pain, ice for acute muscular pain, progressing to pain evaluations, perhaps pain injections. Weve found putting steroids at the site of the pain with local anesthetics can break a pain cycle and can give significant increased function and decreased pain.
Ethnic differences in central sensitization of pain processing and stress-relevant endogenous pain regulatory mechanisms were examined. Forty-four African Americans (AAs; 50% women) and 44 non-Hispanic Whites (nHWs; 50% women) matched for socioeconomic status, were tested for pain responses to the temporal summation of heat pulses and ischemic and cold pain. Resting and stress blood pressure (BP) and norepinephrine (NE) were assessed. AAs had heightened pain responses to all 3 pain tasks relative to nHWs. In nHWs, higher BP and NE were related to reduced pain. In AAs, there was no relationship between BP and pain, but higher NE was related to increased pain. This study provides evidence for ethnic differences in centrally mediated pain and extends prior research demonstrating ethnic differences in endogenous pain regulatory mechanisms. These results have implications for understanding biobehavioral factors contributing to ethnic disparities in clinical pain ...
This module will focus on issues of acute and chronic pain from conventional and complementary perspectives. This may include identifying and critically analysing aspects of anatomy, physiology, psychology, communication theory, or pharmacology that underpin current practice. The theories and methods of pain assessment will be discussed. Sessions will allow the opportunity to explore some of the different intervention strategies. The overall aim of the module is to facilitate the participants understanding of this important area. It will allow them to explore their own views, beliefs and experiences of pain and also discuss current themes so that they may have a better understanding of clients / patients who experience pain in its broadest concept. The module will cover different aspects of pain management such as: • Multidimensional nature of pain and aspects of the physiological and psychological basis of pain • Pain assessment and measurement • The management of pain - the effective ...

Ok so I know I should know the answer to this question but the truth is I dont. Are Central pain and Neuropathic pain one in the same or are they different or just related?? If so how is one treated vs the other? I always thought that the burning...I want to rip my skin off pain was considered neuro. pain but I have heard others call it central pain. Also is it usual to have numbness along with the burning pain? I assume that it is but even though its been almost a year I am still learning.
Acute pain is normal pain that warns that youve been hurt, Fraifeld says. "When you break your leg, when you hit your thumb with the hammer, when you put your hand on the hot plate and you burn yourself … thats good pain. It tells you that you have an injury." When you touch that scorching dish, your body will react immediately and youll pull your hand away. Acute pain starts suddenly and usually doesnt last long. When the injury heals, the pain stops. For example, a broken leg will hurt during recovery, but "as time goes on, it gets better and better," Fraifeld says. With chronic pain, "the pain itself becomes a disease," Fraifeld says. "When the injury heals and you continue having pain beyond the time of expected recovery, thats chronic pain ...

Neuropathic condition usually shown symptoms that are not related to the condition or injury of one. This condition causes nerves to send pain signals to the brain even when there is no ongoing tissue damage. Neuropathic condition is unlike pain that is caused by an underlying injury. Usually when one does not fully understand the condition of neuropathic pain, they believe that injury to the sensory or motor nerves in the peripheral nervous system can potentially cause neuropathy. Neuropathic problem has a hint of musculoskeletal nature and a combination of the usual unpleasant sensation as mentioned above. However, Neuropathic condition feels different compared to usual musculoskeletal pain and is often described as severe, sharp, piercing, stabbing, burning, cold, and numbness, tingling or weakness. This sensation will travel along the nerve path from the spine down to the arms and hands or legs and feet. Its important to understand the symptoms of neuropathic pain so that you will seek the ...

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 ...

Converting mouse and human skin cells into pain sensing neurons that respond to a number of stimuli causing acute inflammatory pain has been successfully done by scientists.
Acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself. However, chronic pain is different-it is pain that persists for weeks, months, even years. Many chronic pain conditions affect older adults. Chronic pain may include headache, low back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain, neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself), and psychogenic pain (pain not due to an obvious disease or injury or any visible sign of damage to the nervous system).. If you do not see a topic of interest to you, please try the A to Z listing of health conditions. ...
From emerging research in this new field, it is becoming clear that glial cells release cytokines, chemokines, and other neuroactive substances that disrupt the excitatory and inhibitory amino acid and neurotransmitter homeostasis and, consequently, elevate neuronal excitability, which manifests as both heightened and prolonged pain.. It has been suggested that glial cells are implicated in the onset or maintenance of multiple pain types and in the "chronification" of acute pain to chronic pain.. some substances released by these cells attenuate the response to pain-relieving therapies, particularly opioids.. For example, as Ji et al discuss, "glial activation is not well defined," and it will be "difficult to design drugs that target only glial cells without affecting neurons.". In the interim, pain patients might take a practical approach to improving their pain by improving their glial health through adoption of a healthier lifestyle and diet, losing weight, and maintaining a regular exercise ...

Why would you choose a Pain Relieving Gel over a Pain Relieving Medicine? The main reason would be that the Pain Relieving Gel would target the specific region you were looking for relief for. For insteance, a Pain Relieving Gel would be applied directly over the targeted area and used for muscle soreness or arthritis pain. However, a pain relieving medicine would be ingested and would be disrtibuted throughout your whole body not targeting the specific areas of need. Now that you have decided to use a Pain Relieving Gel to target your specific needs then choosing the right one would be the next decision. When going under the category Topicals and Analgesics on Discount Medical Suplies there are many popular brands to choose from like Biofreeze, Sub Zero, Sombra, Salonpas, Kool-N-Fit and many more. However, just becasue a Pain Relieving Gel is popular doesnt mean that it is the most effective or even a natural or healthy choice. There are four main types of Pain Relieving gels to choose from that have
Variants of two genes were related to clinically meaningful increases in pain scores-at least four peak scores higher than six (on a ten-point scale) during the 24 hours after surgery. After adjustment for other factors, the risk of elevated pain scores was 4.5 times higher for children with a specific variant of the gene ABCB1, which affects the transport of opioid drugs to the central nervous system.. Risk of elevated pain scores was 3.5 times higher for children with a certain variant of the gene OPRM, a key target receptor for opioid binding. The associations with ABCB1 and OPRM variants remained significant after adjustment for patterns of gene inheritance from parents. Variants of two additional genes affecting pain perception-NTRK and COMT-were linked to more subtle, subclinical effects on pain scores.. …But Have No Effect on Use of Pain ...

Related conditions - Everyone has experienced pain at some time or other. A cut, a sports injury, childbirth, surgery, or kidney stones all can produce varying degrees of pain. In these cases, the pain has a known cause and resolves when the cause is no longer there. This type of pain is acute pain. Acute pain performs a function - it warns the body of a problem or injury.
Rating scales like the visual analogue scale, VAS, and the verbal rating scale, VRS, are often used for pain assessments both in clinical work and in research, despite the lack of a gold standard. Interchangeability of recorded pain intensity captured in the two scales has been discussed earlier, but not in conjunction with taking the influence of pain etiology into consideration. In this cross-sectional study, patients with their pain classified according to its etiology (chronic/idiopathic, nociceptive and neuropathic pain) were consecutively recruited for self-assessment of their actual pain intensity using a continuous VAS, 0-100, and a discrete five-category VRS. The data were analyzed with a non-parametric statistical method, suitable for comparison of scales with different numbers of response alternatives. An overlapping of the VAS records relative the VRS categories was seen in all pain groups. Cut-off positions for the VAS records related to the VRS categories were found lower in patients with
Pain management is an important concern for a child with cancer or other pain-causing diseases. When a child has cancer, one of his or her greatest fears, and the fear of parents, is pain. Every effort should be made to ease the pain during the treatment process.. Pain is a sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony. Because pain is unique to each person, a childs pain cant be measured with a lab test or imaging study. Healthcare providers can evaluate a childs pain by observing him or her and asking about it. There are a number of tools and methods available to help assess pain in children.. Pain may be acute or chronic. Acute pain is severe and lasts a relatively short time. It is usually a sign that body tissue is being injured in some way. The pain generally disappears when the injury heals. Chronic pain may range from mild to severe, and is present to some degree for long periods of time.. Many people believe that if a person has been diagnosed with cancer, they must be in pain. This is ...
Pain in dementia is a critical clinical issue which presents significant challenges for treatment and care. As the numbers of people with dementia increase alongside the ageing population, assessment and treatment of pain in this patient group will become an increasingly important and potentially costly consideration. The EU-COST initiative aims to address this issue by drawing on existing evidence and leading experts in clinical, professional and academic fields and by strengthening international collaboration. The initiative aims to provide an international roadmap to a better understanding of pain in people with cognitive impairment and ultimately to improve the assessment of pain across all treatment settings. This paper describes the first phase of the collaboration. The objective is to combine evidence from the literature and published pain assessment instruments with clinical and methodological expertise to reach consensus within Europe on a core assessment tool for pain in people with ...
NP is a form of chronic pain in which a sustained activation of nociceptive pathway cause a "maladaptive" response/plasticity of the pain circuitry in which the nociceptive transmission is enhanced and altered so that pain is felt in the absence of stimuli and the response to innocuous (allodynia) and noxious stimuli are enhanced (hyperalgesia). It can persist years and even decades after its first expression so that it is considered itself a disabling disease.. In addition to its nociceptive and the nocifensive component NP is also considered by the emotional-affective and cognitive aspects which are crucial for a whole knowledge of the pain mechanisms. In fact pain can induce impairment of cognitive processes that in turn modulate pain perception. In other words, chronic pain conditions cause depression and anxiety and vice versa patients with depression and/or anxiety feel pain intensely. To this regard, specific brain areas, such as the cingulate and somatosensory cortex, undergo changes ...
The management of your pain is of great importance to us. We will be assessing your level of pain from the time of admission until you receive our post operative call at home. During your stay at the facility, you will be repeatedly asked to rate your pain using a numerical scale (1-10), or for children, the "Faces Pain Scale" (shown below). We will often use a combination of different modalities to help make you comfortable - choosing from oral medications, intravenous medications, nerve blocks, injection of local anesthetic during the surgery, etc. Prior to the surgery, the management of your pain should be discussed with both your anesthesiologist and surgeon. Please feel free to bring up any concerns or fears you may have. Remember that information on pain management gives you the appropriate expectations and hence a smoother, more comfortable recovery. It is important to follow instructions regarding your post operative pain medication closely. Many pain medications take 20 to 30 minutes to ...

Pain management. Pain management is an important concern in the dying child. With a child who is dying, one of the greatest fears is pain. Every measure should be taken to eliminate pain from the dying process.. Pain control choices and management plans should be discussed before the child experiences significant pain. Fear of addiction to narcotics is common among families. Its important to understand, however, that the ultimate goal is comfort, which means taking appropriate measures to assure the child is free from pain. Theres no evidence of addiction to pain medicines in dying children.. Pain is a sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony. Because pain is unique to each individual, a persons pain cant truly be judged by anyone else.. Pain may be acute or chronic. Acute pain is severe and lasts a relatively short time. Its usually a signal that body tissue is being injured in some way, and the pain generally disappears when the injury heals. Chronic pain may range from mild to severe, ...
How well are patients in one Norwegian emergency department having their pain managed? According to this study in the Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation & Emergency Medicine, not very well. Of patients with moderate to severe pain (58% of all study participants), only 14% received pain medications. The authors note that "Pain management is accepted as a quality indicator of care, and additional focus on strategies to improve pain management in the ED is necessary to ensure that all patients receive optimal pain assessment and treatment." First of all, not all patients come to the emergency department with pain complaints. It gets idiotic when asking patients with a rash, a runny nose, or a cough about their level of pain. Second, the study required that anyone with a pain rating more than 3 of 10 be treated for pain. Demanding medication be given for 4 of 10 pain? Give me a break. Third if you want "strategies" to improve compliance, just take a page from the US playbook. Call pain ...

Individual interpretation of pain can vary among patients as well as in certain populations. Patients and health care providers assessment of pain and its treatment modalities can affect goals of therapy and overall success of treatment. Exploring these related perceptions will allow a more effective approach to the management of pain in the elderly population and improve the use of appropriate pain medications. This literature review will provide a better understanding of the associated emotional, physical, and perceptional aspects of pain within the elderly population and discuss barriers associated with the effective treatment of pain. This knowledge will serve as a resource for geriatric practitioners to select and provide appropriate therapeutic interventions for pain management in the elderly population.
Its a commonly held belief that women are better able to tolerate pain than men. The reasoning behind this is often that women are built to withstand pain because of how frequently they experience pain in their lives from events such as periods and childbirth. On the other hand, when a typical man gets a cold hes often laughed at for suffering a bout of "man-flu". There are clear and consistent gender differences in the perception and experience of pain. But are such views really a helpful way of thinking about men and womens pain? After all, men will never experience period pain or childbirth, so why are we speculating how they would cope in such a situation? Why do we dismiss male pain responses as exaggerated and trivial, and what effect does the normalization of womens pain have on treatment? Science Fact Not Fiction Surveys and clinical studies have confirmed that women actually experience more pain, with greater frequency and intensity. They take more painkillers, suffer more from ...
The spinal cord acts as a sort of relay center where the pain signal can be blocked, enhanced, or otherwise modified before it is relayed to the brain. One area of the spinal cord in particular, called the dorsal horn is important in the reception of pain signals.
Pain catastrophizing (the cognitive-emotional tendency to ruminate about pain, magnify pain, and feel helplessness in response to pain) enhances pain and pain-related outcomes. However, the mechanisms by which catastrophizing modulates pain are poorly understood. Evidence suggests that catastrophizing modulates supraspinal processing of pain, but does not modulate spinal nociception (as assessed by nociceptive flexion reflex [NFR]). Unfortunately, these studies have all been cross-sectional and relied on between-subject correlations, which limit conclusions about causation. To address this limitation, the present study experimentally reduced catastrophizing to determine whether it modulates spinal nociception (NFR). Healthy pain-free participants (N=113) were randomly assigned to a brief 30-minute catastrophizing reduction manipulation or a control group that received pain education. Before and after manipulations, 2 types of painful stimuli were delivered to elicit (1) NFR (single trains of ...

Muscle Pain!!!. Muscle pain is also known as myofascial pain syndrome which is just another fancy way of naming it.. It is referred as pain and inflammation in bodys soft tissues.. Muscle pain is a chronic condition that affects the connective tissue that covers the muscle tissue.. Muscle pain or as it is called myofascial pain syndrome may involve either a single muscle or a muscle group.. The area where the muscle pain is generated may not be where a person experiences a pain.. The main site of the injury influences the development of a trigger point that causes pain in other areas.. This situation is called as referred pain.. The symptoms of muscle pain usually involve muscle pain with specific "trigger" or "tender" points.. The pain can grow from bad to worse with activity or stress.. Also along with the local or regional pain which is associated with myofascial pain syndrome, the people with this disorder also may suffer from depression, fatigue and behavioural disturbances.. Muscle pain ...
Background: Agriculture poses varied dangers to hired farm workers in the U.S., but little information exists on occupational risks for chronic musculoskeletal pain. We examined common work positions, such as kneeling, carrying heavy loads, and repetitive motion that may increase the risk for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Methods: MICASA is a population-based study of occupational exposures and he
Background: Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a worldwide health problem. Anxiety and depression are common among patients suffering from chronic pain. Self-management strategies are used to help patients manage the emotional distress associated with pain.

ABSTRACT: Background. Albeit exercise is currently advocated as one of the most effective management strategies for fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS); the implementation of exercise as a FMS treatment in reality is significantly hampered by patients poor compliance. The inference that pain catastrophizing is a key predictor of poor compliance in FMS patients, justifies considering the alteration of pain catastrophizing in improving compliance towards exercises in FMS patients. The aim of this study is to provide proof-of-concept for the development and testing of a novel virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET) program as treatment for exercise-related pain catastrophizing in FMS patients. Methods. Two interlinked experimental studies will be conducted. Study 1 aims to objectively ascertain if neurophysiological changes occur in the functional brain areas associated with pain catastrophizing, when catastrophizing FMS subjects are exposed to visuals of exercise activities. Study 2 aims to ascertain the ...
