2014-08-26 22:16:20 | BioPortfolio


Patients with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue or pain benefit minimally from a conventional medical evaluation yet consume a large amount of medical resources and time. The question is to see if patients with a diagnosis of chronic pain or fatigue benefit from an Integrative Medicine medical evaluation conducted by physician who has additional training in Integrative Medicine. Patients who call for a general medical examination with a complaint of chronic fatigue or pain will be set up with the integrative medical specialist or standard general medical evaluation.

Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.

Sudden temporary alterations in the normally integrative functions of consciousness.

Conditions characterized by pain involving an extremity or other body region, HYPERESTHESIA, and localized autonomic dysfunction following injury to soft tissue or nerve. The pain is usually associated with ERYTHEMA; SKIN TEMPERATURE changes, abnormal sudomotor activity (i.e., changes in sweating due to altered sympathetic innervation) or edema. The degree of pain and other manifestations is out of proportion to that expected from the inciting event. Two subtypes of this condition have been described: type I; (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY) and type II; (CAUSALGIA). (From Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)
