Pain has been classified into three distinct types (nociceptive, neuropathic, centralized), but emerging research suggests many pain conditions are mixed pain states, lying on a continuum from nociceptive (acute) to centralized (fibromyalgia). Patients exhibiting centralized pain preoperatively have increased short- and long-term postoperative pain, opioid use, and worse surgical outcomes. Treatments effective for nociceptive pain, in particular opioids, are not effective for centralized pain. This educational session will examine central and peripheral nervous system changes in individuals with centralized pain, discuss ways to detect centralized pain, treatment options for centralized versus nociceptive pain, and examine research on the effects of centralized pain to important surgical outcomes.
