Management should be approached on an individual basis according to the patient’s health status, age, previous response to opioids and the risk of dependence. Treatment with an opioid should be started at the lowest dose (10mg oral morphine or equivalent), re-evaluated after 72 hours and continuously monitored. Opioids should be tapered off in case of lack of efficacy

228. Vitamin D for the treatment of chronic painful conditions in adults.

Vitamin D for the treatment of chronic painful conditions in adults. BACKGROUND: This review is an update of a previously published review in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (Issue 1, 2010) on 'Vitamin D for the treatment of chronic painful conditions in adults'.Vitamin D is produced in the skin after exposure to sunlight and can be obtained through food. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with a range of conditions, including chronic pain. Observational and circumstantial (...) evidence suggests that there may be a role for vitamin D deficiency in the aetiology of chronic painful conditions. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy and safety of vitamin D supplementation in chronic painful conditions when tested against placebo or against active comparators. SEARCH METHODS: For this update, we searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, and EMBASE to February 2015. This was supplemented by searching the reference lists of retrieved articles

An initial assessment (detailed history, psychoso- cialassessment, and physicalexamination) should be performed to determine the most likely basis of chronic pain in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The initial evaluation should attempt to distin- guish between acute pathology (often due to cyst infection, stones, or bleeding) and chronic pathol- ogy (caused by cyst expansion or mechanical back pain from increased kidney mass). Thus, pain due to cyst infection
