The google search terms are telling me something

Just a quick note to the people clicking through here looking for info on hyperalgesia and allodynia and/or central sensitization. I am happy to see that people are coming here as a result of these search terms and it is worth noting that we are right below wikipedia on the google search terms. If you’re reading through and happen to see this post, please know that I am more than happy to field some questions. Mind you, I am not the world expert but I can try my best to be helpful. Moreover, I have several ideas for some pain-related posts in the coming weeks but none of them are set in stone and I’d love to hear any suggestions. Remember, I am doing this in an effort to compile some reliable and free info (including links to freely available lit) so any suggestions on how this series should go forward are most welcome.

  1. There are some cases where the amplification is thought to occur in higher brain centers as well. This can happen, for instance, after a stroke.

    I’d be interested in learning more about this stroke connection…

  2. Bayman,
    You would pick one of the biggest enigmas in pain research and clinical pain practice for the first suggestion! I’ll give it a shot, but it may be awhile before it shows up.
