Referred Pain

Referred pain is best described in neurological terms as "pain perceived as arising or occurring in a region of the body innervated by nerves or branches of nerves other than those that innervate the actual source of pain" (IASP definition).

The topographical definition becomes ambiguous in cases where it is unclear where one region of the body ends and an adjacent region begins. Referred pain is a very common presentation of pain. For pain in a particular area, the diagnostic process should start by asking which body segment are they indicating, and then translate that into which structures are supplied by those spinal cord segments. - Read More
