OBJECTIVES: A relationship between sleep and pain is well established. A better understanding of the mechanisms that link sleep and pain intensity is urgently needed to optimise pain management interventions. The objective of this systematic review was to identify, synthesise and critically appraise studies that have investigated putative mediators on the path between sleep and pain intensity. METHODS: A systematic search of five electronic bibliographic databases (EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL, PsycINFO and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials) was conducted...

OBJECTIVES: Pain affects over 70% of individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with abdominal and musculoskeletal pain representing the most common complaints. Musculoskeletal pain in IBD is reported to be associated with multiple clinical features, however the scope and nature of pain is not well understood. Primary aims were to identify subgroups of musculoskeletal pain in individuals with IBD based on clinical features of pain, and assess how these subgroups differ in aspects of demographics, comorbidity, and IBD characteristics...

OBJECTIVES: Conditioned Pain Modulation (CPM) and Manipulation Induced Analgesia (MIA) may activate similar neurophysiological mechanisms to mediate their analgesic effects. This study assessed the association between CPM and MIA responses in people with lateral epicondylalgia (LE). METHODS: Seventy participants with LE were assessed for CPM followed by MIA. A single assessor measured pressure pain thresholds (PPT) before, during, and after cold water immersion (10°C) of the asymptomatic hand and contralateral lateral glide (CLG) mobilization of the neck...

OBJECTIVES: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a chronically painful condition whose symptoms are widely reported to be exacerbated by stress. We hypothesized that female patients with FMS differ from healthy female controls in their sympathetic responses, a fact that may unmask important biomarkers and factors that contribute to the etiology of FMS. METHODS: In a pilot study, blood pressure (BP), skin temperature, thermogenic activity, circulating glucose, and pain sensitivity of 13 patients and 11 controls at room temperature (24°C) were compared to that after exposure to cold (19°C)...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence supports high rates of co-occurrence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain disorders involving central sensitization (CS). The nature of this relationship, however, remains relatively unexplored. In this study, we aimed to (1) assess how both trauma exposure and current PTSD symptoms are related to clinical manifestations of CS, and (2) test whether PTSD symptoms explain the relationship between trauma exposure and CS. Because experiential avoidance has been shown to impact the relationship between trauma and health outcomes, we (3) explored experiential avoidance as a possible mediator or moderator of the trauma-CS relationship...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with non-specific low back pain (NSLBP) rely more on ankle compared to lower back proprioception during standing, perform sit-to-stand-to-sit (STSTS) movements slower, and exhibit perceptual impairments at the lower back. However, no studies investigated whether these sensorimotor impairments relate to a reorganization of the primary and secondary somatosensory cortices (S1 and S2) and primary motor cortex (M1) during proprioceptive processing. METHODS: Proprioceptive stimuli were applied at lower back and ankle muscles during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in 15 patients with NSLBP and 13 controls...

BACKGROUND: Transient receptor potential ion channels play a role in thermal hyperalgesia and are among targets of novel analgesics. However, a role of TRPA1 in either heat or cold hyperalgesia is controversial. In this study, changes in thermal sensitivity were assessed following topical application of a specific sensitizer of TRPA1 and compared with the effects of sensitizers of TRPV1 and TRPM8. METHODS: Employing a randomized cross-over design, thermal thresholds were assessed in 16 pain-free volunteers before and at 20 minutes after topical application of cinnamaldehyde, capsaicin or menthol stimulating TRPA1, TRPV1, or TRPM8, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: Continuous wound infiltration of local anesthetics has been proposed as an alternative to epidural analgesia during abdominal surgery. Cytokines have a major role in inflammatory changes caused by surgery. This study aimed to compare the effects of continuous preperitoneal versus epidural analgesia on inflammatory cytokines postoperatively. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty patients scheduled for radical cystectomy were included in this observer-blinded, randomized trial; patients were randomly assigned into 2 groups to receive; continuous preperitoneal wound infiltration (PPB) or epidural analgesia (EDB)...
