Purpose of reviewPatients receiving chronic opioid treatment who develop paradoxical pain sensations, as well as worsening existing pain, can be diagnosed as suffering from opioid-induced hyperalgesia (OIH). As the worldwide population expands so too does the proportion of patients who experience pain that requires a strong opioid. Recognizing the symptoms of OIH and optimizing the use of morphine in the hospital setting is imperative. This review focuses on clinical data relating to evidence… 
Opioid-Induced Hyperalgesia After Surgery: Clinical Relevance
TLDR
Experimental studies suggest that sensitivity to pain is greater in those animals who have been exposed to opioids perioperatively as compared to those who were unexposed animals.
Linking opioid-induced hyperalgesia and withdrawal-associated injury site pain: a case report
TLDR
It is illustrated that both opioid use and withdrawal can reactivate injury site pain, which can increase with dose escalation and repeated withdrawal events.

Pearls for opioid use in seriously ill patients
Abstract Opioids are often the foundation of pain management in seriously ill patients. Unfortunately, even experienced providers carry with them information that they consider “fact”, when this
Physiological Response to Opioids
TLDR
Women’s health providers should have in-depth understanding of such reverberations on patients’ wellbeing to maintain the safest level of care and a solid grasp of physiological repercussions of opioid use would encourage physicians to seek alternative treatment options.
Optimizing the management of chronic pain in sickle cell disease.
TLDR
The complexity of managing chronic pain in SCD is discussed; pain that may be dependent or independent of the underlying SCD diagnosis, and emerging data suggests that chronic opioid therapy (COT) is a suboptimal treatment strategy for chronic pain.
Withdrawal-associated injury site pain (WISP): a descriptive case series of an opioid cessation phenomenon
TLDR
This research represents the first known documentation that previously healed, and pain-free injury sites can temporarily become painful again during opioid withdrawal, an experience which may be a barrier to opioid cessation, and a contributor to opioid reinitiation.

Oral opioid administration and hyperalgesia in patients with cancer or chronic nonmalignant pain.
TLDR
The results suggest that the administration of 'commonly used' dosages of oral opioids does not result in abnormal pain sensitivity beyond that of patients receiving non-opioid analgesia.
Opioid-induced hyperalgesia in patients after surgery: a systematic review and a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that high intra-operative doses of remifentanil are associated with small but significant increases in acute pain after surgery.
Opioid-induced hyperalgesia: when pain killers make pain worse
TLDR
The team suspected opioid-induced hyperalgesia and decided to cut the patient's opioids by one-third initially, which immediately improved the overall pain and Mood and memory also improved as opioids decreased and she was discharged home after 8 days.
Pain responses in methadone-maintained opioid abusers.
High-dose daily opioid administration and poor functional status intensify local anesthetic injection pain in cancer patients.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that opioid medication is an important contributing factor to pain perception accompanying LA injection, and cancer patients using high-dose opioids may be highly susceptible to hyperalgesic responses to this clinical stimulus.
Perioperative dilemma: challenges of the management of a patient on mega doses of morphine and methadone.
TLDR
The successful management of this patient was multimodal and included the use of potent analgesics, N-methyl-D-aspartatereceptor antagonists, and the α-2 agonist clonidine.
Conversion from high-dose full-opioid agonists to sublingual buprenorphine reduces pain scores and improves quality of life for chronic pain patients.
TLDR
Clinicians should consider buprenorphine SL conversion for all patients on high- dose opioids, particularly patients with severe pain unrelieved by their current opioid regimen or patients for whom the clinician does not feel comfortable prescribing high-dose opioids.
