The presence of more than six symptoms of pain in patients with Grade II disabilities can be attributed to chronic neuropathy, the physiological basis of which are the phenomena of hypersensitisation and cellular memory, which act in perpetuating the pain making it chronic, and sometimes making it difficult to control.
This peripheral sensitisation allows nociceptors to fire more easily and more rapidly--a hypersensitisation that can, in chronic pain states, cause nociceptors to fire to non-noxious stimuli.
