152 Possible Causes for High Pain Threshold

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    The signs and symptoms of acute alcohol intoxication resemble those of vertebrobasilar stroke. Due to their shared symptoms including double vision, nystagmus, dysarthria, and ataxia, the differential diagnosis of alcohol intoxication and vertebrobasilar stroke may pose a challenge. Moreover, if alcohol intoxication[…][]

  • Overdose

    Background: Naloxone is effective for reversing opioid overdose, but optimal strategies for out-of-hospital use are uncertain. Purpose: To synthesize evidence on 1) the effects of naloxone route of administration and dosing for suspected opioid overdose in out-of-hospital settings on mortality, reversal of[…][]

  • Alcohol Hallucinosis

    INTRODUCTION: Previous studies showed that patients with acute alcohol hallucinosis had significantly lower levels of the inhibitory amino acid neurotransmitter, glycine. METHODS: A placebo-controlled, double-blind study of glycine in 40 patients with acute alcohol hallucinosis. Treatment duration was 7 days with no other[…][]

  • Congenital Pain Insensitivity

    These high threshold stimuli are detected by specialised peripheral sensory neurons known as nociceptors which are abundant in the Peripheral Pain Pathway.[] ., 2007). 2.2 Physiological Mechanisms The perception of pain is usually evoked at pressures and temperatures extreme enough to cause potential tissue damage and also by toxic[]

  • Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

    We propose in this study to examine whether sensory testing to determine mechanical pain threshold [MPT] or heat pain threshold [HPT] will predict the subject's response to[] This combination of decreased pain threshold, abnormally high foot pressures, and repetitive stress (such as from walking) can lead to calluses and ulcerations in the high-pressure[] We hypothesize that people with painful DPN who have high MPT or HPT are more likely to respond to lidocaine treatment.[]

  • Drug-induced Delirium

Abstract Delirium, an acute confusional state with changes in attention and cognition, is a common cause of[…][]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    Abstract The history, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of phencyclidine hydrochloride (PCP) intoxication and the pharmacology of PCP are reviewed. Intoxication with low to moderate doses of PCP (5-20 mg) resembles an acute, confusional state generally lasting four to six hours. High doses (greater than 20 mg)[…][]
