Visceral Pain

Pathology in visceral structures, such as urinary tract infections, bowel impaction, and renal calculi, will generally give rise to nociceptive pain, although the level of the injury will affect the quality of the pain. Individuals with paraplegia may experience visceral pain that is identical to those who have no spinal cord damage. Individuals with tetraplegia, however, may experience less well-defined, generalized unpleasant symptoms that are difficult to interpret. For a full discussion of the applied physiology of visceral pain, see Chapter 3, Applied physiology: persistent visceral pain.
