This is the truth, right here. So very true. I wrote a reply to this one. If you have had chronic pain for many years, you will want to read this one. Thank you EDS Info for posting such timely, up-to-date information about chronic pain. If you have not read this blog, I highly recommend it if you have chronic pain of any kind. This is a fantastic blog!!!
Patients suffering chronic pain are at high risk of suffering long-lasting emotional disturbances characterized by persistent low mood and anxiety. We propose that this might be the result of a functional impairment in noradrenergic circuits associated with locus coeruleus (LC) and prefrontal cortex, where emotional and sensorial pain processes overlap.
As expected, nerve injury produced an early and stable decrease in sensorial pain threshold over the testing period
Most people believe you get used to constant pain, but it’s exactly the opposite: long-lasting pain reduces pain threshold, rather than increasing it as expected.
