BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to characterize patients with chronic temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in terms of existing hyperalgesia against cold, heat and pressure. METHODS: The extent of hyperalgesia for pressure and thermal sensation in TMD patients was determined by the use of the painDETECT questionnaire ("Is cold or heat in this area occasionally painful?" "Does slight pressure in this area, e.g., with a finger, trigger pain?") and experimental somatosensory testing against thermal and pressure stimuli (Quantitative Sensory Testing; QST)...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the most common physical symptom requiring medical care, yet the current methods for assessing pain are sorely inadequate. Pain assessment tools can be either too simplistic or take too long to complete to be useful for point-of-care diagnosis and treatment. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to develop and test Painimation, a novel tool that uses graphic visualizations and animations instead of words or numeric scales to assess pain quality, intensity, and course...

BACKGROUND: Cervical spondylotic radiculopathy (CSR) is a relatively common neurological disease caused by the mechanical compression of nerve roots. Limaprost, a prostaglandin E1 derivative, functions as a vasodilator and has been used in the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis in Japan. However, the effects of limaprost in cervical radiculopathy remain unclear. Our aim was to compare the efficacy of limaprost with that of pregabalin, which is widely used for the treatment of neuropathic pain...

OBJECTIVE: There is an association between osteoarthritis-related pain severity and function, yet clear evidence about the sole influence of neuropathic-like symptoms on joint function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is lacking. Previous studies among knee OA patients show an association between neuropathic-like symptoms, lower functional status and lower quality of life, however analyses were unadjusted or had limited adjustment for influential covariates like pain intensity...

We describe qualitative and quantitative development and preliminary validation of the Patient Assessment for Low Back Pain-Impacts (PAL-I), a patient-reported outcome measure for use in chronic low back pain (cLBP) clinical trials. Concept elicitation and cognitive interviews (qualitative methods) were used to identify and refine symptom concepts. Classical test theory and Rasch measurement theory (quantitative methods) were used to evaluate item-level and scale-level performance of the PAL-I using an iterative approach between qualitative and quantitative methods...

BACKGROUND: Evidence is emerging that pain in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) exists without underlying inflammation. Our objective was to evaluate the prognostic value of pain classification at treatment initiation using the painDETECT questionnaire (PDQ). Outcomes were change in DAS28-CRP and RAMRIS synovitis score. METHODS: RA patients initiating a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) or initiating/ switching a biological agent were included. Follow-up time was 4 months...

Surgery for sarcoma frequently causes nerve damage as the dissection often violates the internervous plane. Nerve damage may cause neuropathic pain (NP), which can result in persistent pain after surgery. This is the first study to investigate the prevalence and associated factors of postoperative NP in patients who underwent surgery for sarcoma of the extremities or pelvis.Patients (n = 144) who underwent curative surgery at least 6 months prior to the visit for histologically confirmed sarcoma were enrolled...

Background/aim: Increased neuropathic pain (NP) symptoms are seen in rheumatologic diseases such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, but no studies have demonstrated a relationship between ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and NP except for a brain imaging study. The aim of this study was to estimate the presence of NP in patients with AS and to investigate how NP was related to disease activity, functional status, and quality of life. Materials and methods: A total of 100 AS patients (71 males and 29 females; median age: 37 years, range: 18–71 years) were included in the study...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic, progressive, and inflammatory disorder and causes chronic back pain. It is not unusual for patients with AS to have symptoms similar to neuropathic pain. We aimed to investigate the neuropathic pain (NeP) component in patients with AS using the painDETECT questionnaire (PD-Q) and to assess the relation between NeP and the disease characteristics of AS. A single-center prospective study was performed, including 105 patients. Patients with AS completed three questionnaires: PD-Q, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and Euro Quality of Life (EQ-5D) questionnaires...

INTRODUCTION: Neuropathic pain (NP) can cause substantial suffering and, therefore, it must be diagnosed and treated promptly. Diagnosis of NP can be difficult and if made by an expert pain physician is considered the gold standard, however where expert help may not be easily available, screening tools for NP can be used. The painDETECT questionnaire (PD-Q) is a simple screening tool and has been widely used in several languages. We developed an Arabic version of PD-Q and tested its validity and reliability...
