Herpes zoster, especially acute herpes zoster, is associated with the reactivation of the inactivated varicella zoster virus in individuals who have had chickenpox. PHN is associated with persistent and often refractory neuropathic pain. Patients may experience several types of pain, including deep pain, intolerable pain, burning, paroxysmal pain, stabbing pain, hyperalgesia, and allodynia. Pharmacological treatment of PHN may include a variety of drugs, including alpha-2 delta ligands (gabapentin and pregabalin), other anticonvulsants (carbamazepine), tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline, nortriptyline, doxepin), topical analgesics (5% lidocaine patch, capsaicin) tramadol, or other opioids. The sizeable side effect profile of commonly used oral drugs often limits their practical use, and a combination of topical and systemic agents may be required for optimal results. Doctors and other care providers must adapt treatment based on individual patient responses.</p> 2022-02-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Pain, Headache and Vertigo HNP LUMBALIS 2023-03-02T04:39:41+00:00 Mega Yulia Rusmayanti Shahdevi Nandar Kurniawan <p>Lumbar herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) is a disorder characterized by local displacement of the disc beyond the anatomical boundaries of the intervertebral space causing pain, weakness or numbness, and/or tingling in myotomal or dermatomal distribution. HNP is the most common cause of low back pain. Lumbar HNP itself has several underlying etiologies, such as old age, excessive axial load, connective tissue disorders, and congenital abnormalities. Management of HNP can be carried out non-operatively or operatively, depending on the severity, the symptoms that arise, and the response to non-operative treatment.</p> 2023-03-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Pain, Headache and Vertigo LEPROSY NEUROPATHY 2023-02-24T02:46:05+00:00 Fahrani Yossa Prachika Shahdevi Nandar Kurniawan <p>Leprosy is a major cause of peripheral neuropathy in developing countries, affecting sensory, motor, and autonomic nerve function. Neuropathy complications can include sensory loss and muscle weakness. Impaired sensory nerve function is often the first symptom encountered in leprosy neuropathy. Early detection and treatment of neuropathy in leprosy are important to prevent disability.</p> 2023-03-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Pain, Headache and Vertigo
