Generalized sensory sensitivity is associated with comorbid pain symptoms: a replication study in women with dysmenorrhea.

Pain 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Evanston, IL, USA.

Abstract: Dysmenorrhea is characterized by high rates of transition to chronic pain. In a previous study using structural equation modeling we demonstrated that several symptom domains associated with the emerging concept of nociplastic pain can be described using two symptom groups: generalized sensory sensitivity (GSS; composed of widespread pain, interceptive sensitivity, and environmental sensitivity) and SPACE (composed of unrefreshing Sleep, Pain, Affective disturbances, Cognitive issues, and reduced Energy). Here we perform a secondary cross-sectional analysis examining the same symptoms groups in a cohort of dysmenorrhea patients without a diagnosis of chronic pain. Read More

J Integr Complement Med 2022 Apr 26. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

Despite substantial progress made in the field of acupuncture research, the existence and specificity of acupoints remain controversial. In recent years, the concept of acupoint sensitization has emerged as a theoretical framework for understanding acupoints as dynamic functional entities that are sensitized in pathological conditions. Based on this premise, some have claimed that specific acupoints are thermally distinct between healthy and clinical populations, but no systematic review has been conducted to synthesize and evaluate the quality of studies supporting such claims.
