Referred Pain with Hyperalgesia

This type of pain is also called true parietal pain (the term parietal is here used to indicate pain in parietal somatic structures including three tissues: skin, subcutaneous tissue, and muscle; the use is different from that reported by Bonica in which parietal pain refers to pain originating from a disease of the parietal pleura or parietal peritoneum). Non-noxious stimulus on skin areas where referred pain exists can provoke pain. Stimulation of the skin area causes a sensation of greater pain than would typically be expected (allodynia) as well as lowering the pain threshold.
