Apparently, I sent this to GeoB, yesterday. I meant it for
for the group.
Christina et al., another good one:
Han, H. et al. 2000. Characteristics of ectopic discharges
in a rat neuropathic pain model. PAIN 84:253-261.
(Ectopic discharges are certainly my favorite, and I like rats, too. :))
Randy- from what I've read, brachial plexus injuries tend to cause long-term
pain problems. I assume they've tried some of the newer nerve pains drugs
such as gabapentin? I do a lot of med. lit. research, soo if I run across
any recent articles re: b.p. avulsion pain treatment, I'll pass the info.
Before people lose their tempers, there are some commonalities in
pain and sensation between amps and between amps and people with
brachial plexus injuries. There are also differences. Individuals from both
groups can have persistent pain problems, and both are very difficult
to treat with complete success. -Jill
