Chronic pain syndromes

overlapping phenotypes with common mechanisms

Research output: Contribution to journalReview ArticleOtherpeer-review

Abstract

The common chronic pain syndromes of fibromyalgia, regional pain syndrome, and complex regional pain syndrome have been made to appear separate because they have been historically described by different groups and with different criteria, but they are really phenotypically accented expressions of the same processes triggered by emotional distress and filtered or modified by genetics, psychology, and local physical factors.
