Chronic Pain Leads to Concomitant Noradrenergic Impairment and Mood Disorders

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.
