Association between child maltreatment and central sensitivity syndromes: a systematic review protocol.

BMJ Open 2019 Feb 19;9(2):e025436. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

School of Nursing, College of Medical and Dental Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Introduction: A growing body of evidence is identifying the link between a history of child maltreatment and a variety of adverse health outcomes ultimately leading to significant social and healthcare burden. Initial work has identified a potential association between child maltreatment and the development of a selection of somatic and visceral central sensitivity syndromes: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder, chronic lower back pain, chronic neck pain, chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, chronic prostatitis, tension-type headache, migraine, myofascial pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and restless legs syndrome.

Methods And Analysis: Primary electronic searches will be performed in the Embase, MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus, PyscINFO, CINAHL and Cochrane Library databases and a number of Grey Literature sources including child protection and paediatric conference proceedings. Read More

Mat Pilates and aquatic aerobic exercises for women with fibromyalgia: a protocol for a randomised controlled blind study.

BMJ Open 2019 Feb 19;9(2):e022306. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Faculty of Health Sciences of Trairi - UFRN/FACISA, Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Santa Cruz, Brazil.

Introduction: Physical exercises have been recommended to improve the overall well-being of patients with fibromyalgia, with the main objective of repairing the effects of lack of physical conditioning and of improving the symptoms, especially pain and fatigue. Although widely recommended and widely known, few studies support the use of Pilates as an effective method in improving the symptoms of the disease, comparing it with other well-founded exercise modalities. This protocol was developed to describe the design of a randomised controlled study with a blind evaluator that evaluates the effectiveness of mat Pilates, comparing it with aquatic aerobic exercises, in improving pain in women with fibromyalgia.

A role for corticosteroid-binding globulin variants in stress-related disorders.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2012 May;7(3):301-308

b Endocrine & Metabolic Unit, The University of Adelaide, Royal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide, Australia.

Primary stress-related diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia or chronic widespread pain have been associated with altered activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis due to measured relative hyper- or hypo-cortisolism in basal or experimentally stimulated states. A hereditary risk to development of these diseases has been proposed. Corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG), a plasma transport vehicle for cortisol, may play a more active role in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Read More

Analgesic effects of mirogabalin, a novel ligand for αδ subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels, in experimental animal models of fibromyalgia.

Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Pain & Neuroscience Laboratories, Daiichi-Sankyo Co., Ltd., 1-2-58, Hiromachi, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, 140-8710, Japan.

Mirogabalin, a novel ligand for the αδ subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels, is under the development for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Mirogabalin specifically and potently binds to αδ subunits, and it shows analgesic effects in both peripheral and central neuropathic pain models in rats. To expand pharmacological findings on mirogabalin and provide additional information of its potential for chronic pain therapy, we examined the effects of mirogabalin in 2 experimental models of fibromyalgia, namely, the intermittent cold stress model (ICS model) and the unilateral intramuscular acidic saline injection model (Sluka model).

Exposure to Cold Unmasks Potential Biomarkers of Fibromyalgia Syndrome Reflecting Insufficient Sympathetic Responses to Stress.

Clin J Pain 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Dept. Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences, University of Minnesota, St. Paul MN.

Objectives: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a chronically painful condition whose symptoms are widely reported to be exacerbated by stress. We hypothesized that female patients with FMS differ from healthy female controls in their sympathetic responses, a fact that may unmask important biomarkers and factors that contribute to the etiology of FMS.

Methods: In a pilot study, blood pressure (BP), skin temperature, thermogenic activity, circulating glucose, and pain sensitivity of 13 patients and 11 controls at room temperature (24°C) were compared to that after exposure to cold (19°C). Read More

FHU INOVPAIN, centre d'évaluation et de traitement de la douleur, CHU de Timone, pôle de neurosciences cliniques, 13005 Marseille, France.

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria of the B. burgdorferi sensu lato complex, and can give polymorphic clinical manifestations that can affect several organs such as the skin, the central nervous system, or the joints. In recent years, patients' associations and physicians have been supporting the hypothesis that this infection would manifest as chronic generalized musculoskeletal pain symptoms, named "chronic Lyme disease".

Functional and neurochemical disruptions of brain hub topology in chronic pain.

Pain 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Anesthesiology, Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, United States.

A critical component of brain network architecture is a robust hub structure, wherein hub regions facilitate efficient information integration by occupying highly connected and functionally central roles in the network. Across a wide range of neurological disorders, hub brain regions seem to be disrupted, and the character of this disruption can yield insights into the pathophysiology of these disorders. We applied a brain network-based approach to examine hub topology in fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition with prominent central nervous system involvement. Read More

Effects of a brief cognitive behavioral intervention and transcranial direct current stimulation on odor sensitivity: An exploratory investigation.

Psychosom Med 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, USA.

Objective: Enhanced odor sensitivity is a phenomenon that potentially underlies conditions such as multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). Currently, there are no treatments that have been shown to effectively decrease odor sensitivity. Given similarities of odor hypersensitivity/MCS to pain sensitization disorders such as fibromyalgia, there may be a potential for interventions that improve pain tolerance to modulate odor sensitivity.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Skeletal Muscle of a Fibromyalgia Model: The Potential Benefits of Melatonin.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Feb 11;20(3). Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Anatomy and Physiopathology Division, Department of Clinical and Experimental Sciences, University of Brescia, Viale Europa 11, 25123 Brescia, Italy.

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is considered a musculoskeletal disorder associated to other symptoms including chronic pain. Since the hypothesis of FMS etiogenesis is consistent with mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress, we evaluated the pathophysiological correlation among these factors studying some proteins involved in the mitochondrial homeostasis. We focused our attention on the roles of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma coactivator-1alpha (PGC-1α), mitofusin2 (Mfn2), and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in reserpine-induced myalgic (RIM) rats that manifest fibromyalgia-like chronic pain symptoms.

A psychoeducational intervention is a treatment for fibromyalgia syndrome.

Clin Exp Rheumatol 2019 Jan-Feb;37 Suppl 116(1):98-104. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Surgical, Medical and Molecular Pathology, Critical and Care Medicine, University of Pisa, Italy.

Although the mechanisms underlying fibromyalgia are not yet clear, many attempts have been made to implement pharmacological therapy and help patients manage its psychological and physical symptoms. Recent evidence has shown that an interdisciplinary multidimensional approach encompassing psychological factors, emotion regulation strategies and education on illness is more effective in improving quality of life, both in the short- and long-term, than usual treatments alone. The purpose of this review is to provide an updated overview of the available literature regarding the role of psychoeducation on fibromyalgia symptoms and health outcomes. Read More

Health beliefs, attitudes, and health-related quality of life in persons with fibromyalgia: mediating role of treatment adherence.

Psychol Health Med 2019 Feb 6:1-16. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

f Department of Psychology , East Tennessee State University , Johnson City , TN , USA.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness characterized by pain and fatigue. Persons with fibromyalgia experience increased the risk for poor mental and physical health-related quality of life, which may be dependent on multiple factors, including health beliefs, such as confidence in physicians and the health-care system, and health behaviors, such as treatment adherence. Respondents with fibromyalgia (n = 409) were recruited nationally, via support organizations, and completed self-report measures: Multidimensional Health Profile - Health Functioning Index (MHP-H), Short-Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36v2), and Medical Outcomes Study (MOS) Measure of Patient Adherence - General Adherence Items.

Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia: Disagreement Between Fibromyalgia Criteria and Clinician-Based Fibromyalgia Diagnosis in a University Clinic.

Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken) 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.

Objective: Recent studies have suggested that fibromyalgia is inaccurately diagnosed in the community, and that ~75% of persons reporting a physician diagnosis of fibromyalgia would not satisfy published criteria. To investigate possible diagnostic misclassification, we compared expert physician diagnosis with published criteria.

Methods: In a university rheumatology clinic, 497 patients completed the Multidimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MD-HAQ) and the 2010 American College of Rheumatology preliminary diagnostic criteria modified for self-administration during their ordinary medical visits. Read More

Cutaneous silent periods - Part 2: Update on pathophysiology and clinical utility.

Clin Neurophysiol 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Unitat d'Electromiografia, Servei de Neurologia, Hospital Clínic, IDIBAPS (Institut d'Investigació Biomèdica August Pi i Sunyer), Universitat de Barcelona, Hospital Clinic I Provincial de Barcelona, Spain.

Testing of exteroceptive electromyographic modulation of ongoing voluntary muscle activity is of increasing interest as a diagnostic tool in clinical neurophysiology. The cutaneous silent period (CSP) is a robust and reproducible nociceptive EMG suppression, mediated at the spinal level by small-diameter A-delta afferents. The techniques and physiological principles of CSP testing, which are a fundamental prerequisite for a valid and thoughtful clinical application, are reviewed separately in part 1 (Kofler et al.

Reframing chronic pain as a disease, not a symptom: rationale and implications for pain management.

Postgrad Med 2019 Jan 31:1-14. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

c School of Nursing , Linfield College , Portland , OR , USA.

Chronic pain is a common public health problem that has a detrimental impact on patient health, quality of life (QoL), and function, and poses a substantial socioeconomic burden. Evidence supports the redefinition of chronic pain as a distinct disease entity, not simply a symptom of injury or illness. Chronic pain conditions are characterized by three types of pain pathophysiology (i. Read More

Prevalence of depressive disorder among patients with fibromyalgia: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

J Affect Disord 2019 02 3;245:1098-1105. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Psychiatric Research Unit, Institute of Clinical Research, Odense University Hospital, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark. Electronic address:

Background: It is acknowledged that fibromyalgia (FM) as a medical (rheumatological) disorder and major depressive disorder (MDD) as a mental disorder often co-occurs, but the inconsistency is prevailing at study-level and no overall estimate of the co-occurrence exist.

Aims: This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to estimate the overall point- and life-time prevalence of MDD among FM patients based on structured clinical interviews (SCI); and to estimate the point-prevalence of MDD among FM patients based on screening symptom scales (SSS).

Method: The electronical databases MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and PsycINFO were searched for papers that reported on prevalence of MDD among FM patients. Read More

Could Dietary Glutamate Play a Role in Psychiatric Distress?

Neuropsychobiology 2019 Jan 30:1-7. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Department of Psychology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan,

Glutamate is an amino acid that functions as an excitatory neurotransmitter. It has also been associated with somatic and psychiatric distress and is implicated in the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. Ingestion of dietary glutamate, such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), has been mechanistically linked with greater distress among patients with chronic pain conditions, though findings have been equivocal.

Department of Physical Therapy, Instituto de Investigación Biosanitaria Granada (IBIS Granada), University of Granada (UGR), Granada, Spain.

Introduction: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic illness characterised by the presence of generalised musculoskeletal pain among other symptoms, which reduce the quality of life of the patient. Clinical interventions such as patient education on central pain management could lead to promising results. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of education techniques on the main symptoms such as pain, quality of life, anxiety, functionality or catastrophisation in the treatment of FM.
