Advances in Pain Management
Pain is the most common reason patients seek medical care. Pain has sensory and emotional components and is often classified as acute or chronic. Acute pain is frequently associated with anxiety and hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system (e.g., tachycardia, increased respiratory rate and BP, diaphoresis, dilated pupils). Chronic pain does not involve sympathetic hyperactivity but may be associated with vegetative signs (e.g., fatigue, loss of libido, loss of appetite) and depressed mood. The pain associate with the rheumatic disorders is very difficult to find, but the development of the pain makes the tissue damage with or without inflammatory condition.
