Neuropathic pain is a worldwide health problem with no consensus regarding its optimal therapy. This study compared the analgesic effect and gastric, hepatic, and renal safety of combined low doses of diclofenac and celecoxib with gabapentin versus their individual high doses in the treatment of neuropathic pain in rats. Left sciatic nerve ligation was used as neuropathic pain model. Rats were allocated into 7 groups (7 rats for each): sham control; model group (received vehicle); Gaba-group (received gabapentin (100 mg/kg /day); Diclo 10-group (received diclofenac (10 mg/kg); Cele 10-group (received celecoxib (10 mg/kg/day); Gaba + Diclo 5 (receivedgabapentin(100 mg/kg /day) plus diclofenac (5 mg/kg); Gaba + Cele 5 (received gabapentin (100 mg/kg/day) plus celecoxib (5 mg/kg))...

Fabry disease, a lysosomal storage disorder, is a rare inborn error of metabolism caused by deficiency of the enzyme alpha galactosidase A and resulting accumulation of globotriaosylceramide. The symptoms of Fabry disease are heterogeneous including renal failure, cardiac hypertrophy, and stroke and may not be well recognized by non-specialist physicians. Patients with milder, later onset of disease often have a delay in diagnosis.Fabry patients may suffer significant neuropathic pain in the extremities (acroparasthesia) but the degree to which musculoskeletal symptoms contribute to total pain and disability is unknown...

Pain management in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is a complex and challenging task to accomplish, and effective pain and symptom control improves quality of life. Pain is prevalent in more than 50% of hemodialysis patients and up to 75% of these patients are treated ineffectively due to its poor recognition by providers. A good history for PQRST factors and intensity assessment using visual analog scale are the initial steps in the management of pain followed by involvement of palliative care, patient and family counseling, discussion of treatment options, and correction of reversible causes...

Neuropathic pain increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases including hypertension with the characteristic of sympathetic overactivity. The enhanced tonically active glutamatergic input to the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) contributes to sympathetic overactivity and blood pressure (BP) in cardiovascular diseases. We hypothesize that neuropathic pain enhances tonically active glutamatergic inputs to the RVLM, which contributes to high level of BP and sympathetic outflow. Animal model with the trigeminal neuropathic pain was induced by the infraorbital nerve-chronic constriction injury (ION-CCI)...

INTRODUCTION: Negative myoclonus is a jerky, brief, and sudden interruption of voluntary muscle contraction. Although gabapentin and pregabalin have been reported to induce positive myoclonus in some patients with impaired renal function, there are only a few studies describing pregabalin- or gabapentin-induced negative myoclonus. This study reviewed patients who had developed pregabalin- or gabapentin-induced negative myoclonus. METHODS: We collected the patients with negative myoclonus who were referred to the department of neurology at a university-affiliated hospital and selected pregabalin- or gabapentin-induced negative myoclonus...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes Mellitus is a pandemic of the modern era owing to our rapidly deteriorating lifestyle. Painful diabetic neuropathy is one of the costliest and disabling complications of diabetes mellitus. No single treatment exists to prevent or reverse neuropathic changes or to provide total pain relief. Topical Capsaicin and Turpentine Oil are found to be effective in treatment of painful diabetic neuropathy. METHODS: Patients of either gender with ages between 18 and 70 years having painful diabetic neuropathy already taking one oral drug for painful neuropathy and treatment for diabetes mellitus and an HbA1C less than 8...

BACKGROUND: Pain is a common feature of childhood and adolescence around the world, and for many young people, that pain is chronic. The World Health Organization guidelines for pharmacological treatments for children's persisting pain acknowledge that pain in children is a major public health concern of high significance in most parts of the world. While in the past pain was largely dismissed and was frequently left untreated, views on children's pain have changed over time, and relief of pain is now seen as important...

Like several other anticancer drugs, methotrexate (MTX) causes side effects, such as neuropathic pain, hepatotoxicity, and nephrotoxicity. Abnormal production of reactive oxygen species has been suspected in the pathophysiology of MTX-induced hepatorenal toxicity. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the probable protective role of vitamin C (Vit C) on oxidative stress induced by MTX in the liver and kidney tissues of rats. A total of 32 rats were randomly and equally divided into four groups...

A middle-aged woman with diabetic nephropathy on pregabalin for neuropathic pain presented with a diarrhoeal illness. She was found to have acute on chronic renal impairment with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 10 mL/min, and her usual 150 mg/day of pregabalin was abruptly ceased. Although renal recovery to her baseline of eGFR 15 mL/min was achieved within 3 days, her pregabalin was not restarted. She suffered a tonic-clonic seizure 4 days later, thought to be due to pregabalin withdrawal as there were no other likely causes identified...

Objective: Current treatment strategies for painful critical ischemia in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are suboptimal. A drug that is non-renally excreted has minimal systemic absorption and does not require dose adjustment in renal failure is attractive. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Qutenza® (topical capsaicin 8%) for chronic neuropathic pain from critical ischemia in patients with ESRD. Design and Setting: A prospective cohort study was conducted in a single-center, university teaching hospital...

Bone loss is asymptomatic and will progress without pain and other symptoms until the occurrence of a fracture. The occurrence of a breaking bone induce acute pain determined and supported by a mechanical, inflammatory and neuropathic component. Very often the acute component evolves in a chronic musculoskeletal component. Overall objectives of the analgesic therapy can be summarized in pain relief, improving sleep, improve mobility, reduce anxiety, emotional component and depression. Osteoporosis is predominantly a condition of the elderly, more likely to have coexisting cardiovascular disease and age-related decline in renal function, receiving treatment for one or more comorbid conditions, taking multiple medications...

BACKGROUND: Fabry's disease is a rare X-linked genetic disorder characterized by reduced levels of the α-galactosidase A enzyme. It may present with a cardiac phenotype resembling hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. However, as a specific enzyme replacement therapy is available, it remains an important differential diagnoses in patients presenting with cardiac hypertrophy. In boys, onset has been reported in early childhood with complaints initially comprising neuropathic pain, reduced sweat production, and gastrointestinal symptoms...

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are frequently afflicted with neurological complications. These complications can potentially affect both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Common neurological complications in CKD include stroke, cognitive dysfunction, encephalopathy, peripheral and autonomic neuropathies. These conditions have significant impact not only on patient morbidity but also on mortality risk through a variety of mechanisms. Understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms of these conditions can provide insights into effective management strategies for neurological complications...

Fabry disease (Anderson-Fabry disease) is an X-linked recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from deficient activity of lysosomal hydrolase, alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-Gal A), which leads to progressive accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) in various cells, predominantly endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells, with clinical manifestations affecting major organs including the central nervous system. Manifestations of Fabry disease include progressive renal and cardiac insufficiency, neuropathic pain, stroke and cerebral disease, skin and gastrointestinal symptoms...

Palliative care clinicians are increasingly involved in the care of elderly patients suffering from chronic malignant and nonmalignant illnesses, of which neuropathic pain is a prevalent problem. As a person becomes more frail, pain medications such as opioid analgesics and adjuvant pain medications can result in unwanted effects such as sedation, confusion, and increased risk of falls. Treating pain in patients with advanced dementia or neurodegenerative diseases that can affect swallowing is particularly challenging because most adjuvant pain medications used to ameliorate neuropathic pain must be taken orally...

Cancer pain and pain associated with non-neoplastic diseases can be associated with pain mechanisms, such as a peripheral or central sensitization or deafferentation. The clarification allows indirect conclusions about the underlying mechanisms based on clinical signs, such as allodynia or hyperalgesia. Non-opioid analgesics are the basis of cancer pain therapy according to the World Health Organization (WHO) pain ladder. In the case of severe cancer pain, treatment can be escalated directly from level 1 to level 3...
