Chronic pain management is a major challenge for primary care providers (PCPs). PCPs manage many patients with chronic pain and other comorbidities including mental health problems like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. Chronic pain and opioid problems are a national crisis, particularly among veterans (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 2019). There are many veterans with chronic non-cancer pain who are being treated with opioids. Chronic opioid use has contributed to an epidemic of opioid-related adverse events (VA, 2017).

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of chronic pain in pediatrics is substantial and is estimated to be around 20%. Orchialgia remains difficult and problematic to treat. Mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression are also significantly associated with chronic pain. Following consideration and implementation of steps for all these concerns, a diagnostic block and microsurgical denervation led to successful resolution of chronic testicular pain in a pediatric patient.PMID:34291422 | DOI:10.1007/s12630-021-02072-5
