Smoking and Neuropathic Pain

Introduction: This study aims to determine the percentage of community subjects with chronic neuropathic pain that smoke. (205 subjects)

Conclusions: Smoking was twice as common (62% versus 33%) in subjects that were diagnosed by clinical assessment as having neuropathic versus nociceptive pain. Similar differences were not found among those positive and negative on screening assessment for neuropathic pain. The possible physiological relationship between smoking and development of chronic neuropathic pain deserves further evaluation.

Investigators: Todd G. Call, MD Mayo, Toby N. Weingarten, MD, James C. Watson, MD, W. Michael Hooten, MD, Peter C. Wollan, PhD Mayo, Lee J. Melton, MD, Barbara P. Yawn, MD, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN

Editors note: Funding was provided by AstraZeneca and NIH grant AR30852.
