The finding led her to develop a new model for the pathogenesis of these cases: An adverse life event or other predisposing factor leads to a more proinflammatory cytokine profile that causes small-nerve fiber damage and ongoing pain system activity that produces central sensitization and changes in central pain processing.
It has been suggested that heightened sensitivity to pain, also known as a low pain threshold, could be caused by dysfunction of peripheral or central pain processing, or dysfunction of opioidmediated endogenous pain inhibitory systems.
Factors observed by clinicians leading to changes included (1) criteria for some categories were largely similar, (2) the large number of categories created a lengthy exam, (3) the neurogenic claudication category required a checklist item(s) to help rule-out similarly presenting conditions, such as vascular claudication, (4) a single category entitled central pain better represented the chronic pain syndrome and non-organic pain categories, and (5) separating nociceptive and neuropathic pain diagnoses into subcategories is more aligned with clinical assessment.
