Can interoceptive sensitivity provide information on the difference in the perceptual mechanisms of recurrent and chronic pain? Part I. A retrospective clinical study related to multidimensional pain assessment.


Although neurobiological research has shown that interoception plays a role in the perception of pain and its chronification, the relationship between interoceptive sensitivity and pain has not been definitively confirmed by clinical studies. The aim of this study was therefore to better understand the relationship between interoceptive sensitivity, somatization, and clinical pain, and to identify any differences in the interoceptive sensitivity of patients with recurrent vs. chronic pain.
