Conclusion: Fibromyalgia patients are particularly prone to suicide, in terms of ideation, attempt, risk and events, warranting a pre-emptive screening of their mental health status. Given the few studies available, the high amount of heterogeneity, the evidence of publications bias and the lack of statistical significance when adjusting for underlying psychiatric co-morbidities, further high-quality studies should be conducted.Clinical Trial, identifier 10.17605/OSF.IO/Y4BUE.

CONCLUSIONS: The utility and feasibility of psychological and behavioral health assessments appear to be a critical component of a pain management practice as there is substantial overlap with psychological comorbidities (e.g., depression and anxiety) and chronic pain. Positive affect, such as resilience, may act to confer some protection against the sequelae of chronic pain, and identifying such factors appears vital.PMID:34793657

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTrauma and posttraumatic stress are common among individuals with chronic pain and contribute to increased morbidity and impairment. Individuals with trauma and chronic pain may be prone to non-suicidal self-injury, a relatively common yet risky self-regulatory behavior. There is a dearth of research on the intersection of trauma, chronic pain, and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). We conducted a systematic review of the extant literature.Recent FindingsFive quantitative and eight case reports were identified. Only one quantitative study reported specifically on NSSI. Self-harm rates varied across s...

CONCLUSION: Identified themes suggest pathways to improve understanding and support for those experiencing physical ill health and associated suicide risk. These supports include contextually and culturally appropriate rural services to provide effective and necessary treatment, pain relief and mental health support; acknowledgement and response to a culture of alcohol misuse as an (ultimately ineffective) coping strategy; proactive psychosocial support mechanisms; and alternative approaches to support including consideration of innovative peer support models.PMID:34748670 | DOI:10.1111/ajr.12801

Adin James is only 8 years old, but he has some very strict rules about how the world should work in the age of the pandemic. For starters, there’s the business of avoiding unmasked people. “They don’t have their masks on,” he’ll say when he sees an uncovered face on the street or in a store. “That’s not right. They’re making other people sick.” Then there’s the matter of doctors—who might have been trusted once but not anymore. “They lied to me. They told me my dad was gonna be better,” he tells his mother, Ebony James, 50, a principal at a mid...

Meeting of the Working Group on the National Mental Health Strategic Plan, April 2019By Saima Wazed and Nazish ArmanDHAKA, Oct 27 2021 (IPS) Mental health is a state of well-being when both your body and your mind are in balance, and you are able to deal with the difficulties and challenges that come your way and easily find joy, peace, and happiness once the challenge is overcome. For many people though, the challenges often remain for too long – the pain of losing someone you dearly loved, being diagnosed with a chronic disease like cancer or a heart condition, losing your family/home/job or feeling like you failed...

Abdominal trauma leads rarely to severe renal injury such as acquired arterioveinous fistula. Here, we present the case of a 46-year-old man with a history of suicide attempt by a gunshot in the abdomen. At that time, explorative laparotomy was unremarkable. He consulted 23 years later for chronic left lumbar pain and was diagnosed with an arterioveinous fistula of left renal vessels with a-10-cm aneurysm of the left renal artery. We performed a left nephrectomy and endovascular clamping was the best option to manage this giant aneurysm in a hostile abdomen.

Conclusions: While it is established that co-occurring depression is associated with increased risk of overdose and suicide, this study adds that other health conditions, including chronic pain and common medical conditions, are more prevalent among persons with co-occurring depressive disorders. Results highlight the need to consider these complex health needs when developing treatment plans and services.PMID:34581663 | DOI:10.1080/15504263.2021.1979349
