Abdominal pain is the most common symptom in chronic pancreatitis and has extensive impact on patients' lives. Quantitative sensory testing (QST) provides information on sensitivity to pain and mechanisms which can help quantify pain and guide treatment. The aims of this study were (1) to explore sensitivity to pain in patients with chronic pancreatitis using QST, and (2) to associate patient- and disease characteristics with QST results.
