Michiel Tack

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 Apr 8;16(7). Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Independent researcher, Sint-Laurentiusstraat 87, 9700 Oudenaarde, Belgium.

The classification of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) could have negative consequences for patients with functional somatic syndromes (FSS). By grouping related but distinct syndromes into one label, the MUS classification fails to inform clinicians about their patients' health condition. In research settings, the MUS classification makes patient samples more heterogeneous, obstructing research into the underlying pathology of FSS. Read More

Pharmacology Update: Low-Dose Naltrexone as a Possible Nonopioid Modality for Some Chronic, Nonmalignant Pain Syndromes.

Am J Hosp Palliat Care 2019 Mar 27:1049909119838974. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

2 Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Ballad Health System, Kingsport, TN, USA.

Pain can have a devastating effect on the quality of life of patients in palliative medicine. Thus far, majority of research has been centered on opioid-based pain management, with a limited empirical evidence for the use of nonopioid medications in palliative care. However, opioid and nonopioid medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have their limitations in the clinical use due to risk of adverse effects, therefore, there is a need for more research to be directed to finding an alternative approach to pain management in comfort care setting.

Associations Between Bone Mass in Women With Fibromyalgia and Widespread Pressure Pain Hypersensitivity, Tenderness, Perceived Pain Level, and Disability.

Biol Res Nurs 2019 May 27;21(3):272-278. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

4 Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Health Science, Instituto de Investigación Biosanitaria Granada, University of Granada, Granada, Spain.

This study aimed to evaluate the impact of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) on bone mass assessed by calcaneal quantitative ultrasound (QUS) in pre- and postmenopausal women and determine whether there are associations between bone status and pressure pain thresholds (PPTs), tender point counts (TPCs), self-reported global pain, or disease severity. Ninety-five women with a diagnosis of FMS and 108 healthy controls matched on menopause status were included in this cross-sectional study. PPT and TPC were measured by algometry pressure. Read More

BEEP-Bodily and Emotional Perception of Pain. A Questionnaire to Measure Reaction to Pain in Chronic Pain Disorders.

Front Psychol 2019 12;10:480. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Medical Sciences and Public Health, University of Cagliari, Cagliari, Italy.

The assessment of pain and its impact on quality of life is central to the evaluation of chronic pain syndromes. However, most available tools focus on the nociceptive experience of pain, and at best only consider the occurrence of anxious, depressive, or cognitive problems. Here is a new questionnaire aimed at measuring the multifaceted impact of pain in chronic pain syndromes, the Bodily and Emotional pErception of Pain (BEEP). Read More

Involvement of Substance P in the Analgesic Effect of Low-Level Laser Therapy in a Mouse Model of Chronic Widespread Muscle Pain.

Pain Med 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is widely used in pain control in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation and is effective for fibromyalgia pain. However, its analgesic mechanism remains unknown. A possible mechanism for the effect of LLLT on fibromyalgia pain is via the antinociceptive signaling of substance P in muscle nociceptors, although the neuropeptide has been known as a neurotransmitter to facilitate pain signals in the spinal cord.

JAMA Intern Med 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Medicine, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Columbia.

Background: The gabapentinoid drugs gabapentin and pregabalin were originally developed as antiseizure drugs but now are prescribed mainly for treatment of pain. For gabapentin, the only pain-related indication approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is postherpetic neuralgia. For pregabalin, FDA-approved indications related to pain are limited to postherpetic neuralgia, neuropathic pain associated with diabetic neuropathy or spinal cord injury, and fibromyalgia.

Impact of Polypharmacy on Candidate Biomarker miRNomes for the Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Striking Back on Treatments.

Pharmaceutics 2019 Mar 18;11(3). Epub 2019 Mar 18.

School of Medicine, Universidad Católica de Valencia San Vicente Mártir, 46001 Valencia, Spain.

Fibromyalgia (FM) and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) are diseases of unknown etiology presenting complex and often overlapping symptomatology. Despite promising advances on the study of miRNomes of these diseases, no validated molecular diagnostic biomarker yet exists. Since FM and ME/CFS patient treatments commonly include polypharmacy, it is of concern that biomarker miRNAs are masked by drug interactions. Read More
