The role of nervi nervorum in the distinction between acute nociceptive and neuropathic pain

  title={The role of nervi nervorum in the distinction between acute nociceptive and neuropathic pain},
  author={Manoel Jacobsen Teixeira and Daniel Benzecry de Almeida and Lin Tchia Yeng},
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Several pathophysiological mechanisms are involved in the genesis of neuropathic pain. However, available justifications for its onset are unsatisfying and do not explain the participation of nervi nervorum and nervi vasorum abnormalities on functional aberrations which characterize pain generated by injuries to the peripheral nervous system. There are evidences that nervi nervorum contribute to the development and justify many clinical findings and prophylactic… 



A mechanism-based classification of pain in multiple sclerosis

Nine types of MS-related pain are distinguished, which include trigeminal neuralgia and Lhermitte’s phenomenon, ongoing extremity pain, mixed pains secondary to lesions in the central motor pathways but mediated by muscle nociceptors, musculoskeletal pains, migraine, and treatment-induced pains.

Nerve trunk pain: physical diagnosis and treatment.

A treatment approach is presented which has been shown to have efficacy in the relief of pain and restoration of function in cervicobrachial pain disorders where there is evidence according to the outlined examination protocol of nerve trunk pain.

It is suggested, in this review, that the peripheral nerve trunk is capable of sustaining a “flare” response as observed in injured skin and other tissues.

Effects of Gabapentin on the Different Components of Peripheral and Central Neuropathic Pain Syndromes: A Pilot Study

It is suggested that gabapentin has preferential antihyperalgesic and/or antiallodynic effects, and is equally effective in pain due to peripheral nerve injuries and central lesions and is particularly effective in reducing paroxysmal pain.

Many of the most effective therapeutic modalities recommended for neuropathic pain act by reducing the generation of an abnormal ongoing and evoked discharge, originating, alternatively, at various ectopic neural pacemaker sites.
