ConclusionsIn chronic pain patients with fibromyalgia, the increase in endogenous pain inhibition by tapentadol was translated into analgesia in patients with a normal CNFS. In those with abnormal CNFS, tapentadol treatment was without analgesic effect.SignificanceIn this double ‐blind randomized placebo‐controlled trial, we showed that tapentadol significantly enhanced the descending pain inhibition in fibromyalgia patients. Tapentadol‐induced pain relief was only present in patients with a normal CNFS.

Conclusion: The results of our study may suggest the presence of FM as a clinical sign of a more severe migraine. However, the long-term prospective studies including these group of patients are needed to understand the prognostic impact and importance of the comorbid FM in migraine.

Anyone who remembers the days before finger stick blood glucose meters became available to people with diabetes will recall how awful life was for diabetics. All they had was urine dipsticks which were sloppy, yielded only crude non-quantitative feedback on blood sugars, and gave you a gauge of what blood sugars were in the recent past, not the present. It meant that dosing insulin or diabetes drugs was grotesquely imprecise and accounted for many episodes of hypoglycemic coma and acceleration of diabetic complications. It was not uncommon in those days, for instance, for a type 1 diabetic to be blind and experience kidney...

As physicians, many of our daily practices involve administration of substances that are shrouded in mystery. Certain medications, specifically opioids, have been part of tragic news stories, and have turned young children into orphans, happy spouses into widows and widowers, and once-aspirational youth into memories. The CDC reports that on average, 130 people die each day from an opioid overdose. With such harrowing statistics, why take opioids in the first place? Well, if used appropriately, opioids can significantly improve pain with relatively tolerable side effects. A short-term course of opioids (typically 3 to 7 da...

Abstract Background: Current therapeutic modalities for fibromyalgia (FM) do not provide satisfactory results and new approaches have to be explored. Objectives: To assess efficacy and safety of adding a phytotherapy treatment (Fib-19-01) to the current therapeutic regimen in patients with FM. Methods: Double-blind controlled trial: women with active FM (Fibromyalgia Index Questionnaire FIQ> 40) were randomised to receive Fib-19-01 or a food supplement (FS) undistinguishable from Fib-19-01 or no supplementary treatment (NoST). All continued the conventional therapy throughout the 6 month follow-up. Pr...
