From the IACM-Bulletin:
Two doctors from the Institute for Neuropathic Pain in Soest, The Netherlands, reported of a 56 year old woman suffering from severe chronic neuropathic pain due to damage of the right ulnar nerve. During her life she had had several fractures and surgeries of her right arm. Since 1996 she suffers from pain in the innervation area of the ulnar nerve, which is mainly the area of the fourth and fifth finger. The pain increased in the following years with a pain intensity of 7 on an 11-point numerical rating scale (NRS) with "0=no pain" and "10=highest possible pain," despite the use of opiates and other pain medication.
