Raising Awareness About Neuropathic Pain

"Neuropathic pain can be frustrating for people because the person is experiencing pain in a body part that appears perfectly normal," said Edward Covington, MD, Director of the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program, Cleveland Clinic Foundation.


Dr. Covington Joins RSD Foundation's Scientific Advisory Committee

www.rsdfoundation.org [cached]

The Foundation is delighted to announce that Ed Covington MD, internationally known expert on the psychosocial aspects of pain, has agreed to join our Scientific Advisory Committee.
He is highly published. This is a recent article published in the May 5 issue of PEOPLE MAGAZINE about Dr. Covington's extraordinary accomplishments at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. "All of us would rather have someone take away our pain with an injection than be taught how to live with it," says Dr. Edward Covington, director of the Cleveland Clinic program. But meds often offer only brief or partial relief, and when prescribed improperly their side effects (ulcers from analgesics; dopiness from narcotics) can be nasty. Covington, 56, is helping to pioneer a more comprehensive - and, experts say, effective - approach. "Ed is a leader in his field," says Dr. Jeffrey D. Rome, medical director of pain rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. That regimen is based on a growing body of research showing that pain is "intensely affected by emotions, fears and beliefs," says Covington, and that treating it as a mere symptom is not always enough. In chronic cases, says Covington, pain can cause permanent neurological changes. "Pain becomes an evolving, perpetuating problem," he explains. "A disease." Dr. Edward Covington says his clinic encourages the pain sufferer to "be less of a patient and more of a person." "That's what allows you to score a touchdown with a broken leg," says Covington, a psychiatrist and married father of three who got his medical degree at the University of Tennessee and came to the Cleveland Clinic in 1979. On the other hand, he notes, brain-imaging studies show that fear or anxiety increases pain. "Some areas of the brain reflect the sensory component - the 'ouch' factor," he says. "Others reflect emotional suffering." Covington "understands that you can't be in pain for any significant period and not become depressed or anxious," says Dr. Hubert Rosomoff, medical director of the University of Miami's pain rehab center. Thanks to Covington, Davis is working at her family's window company and now makes the clinic sound like Lourdes on Lake Erie. "One of the most important things we do is send people to the gym, where they find themselves doing things they didn't think they could do," says Covington. Covington prescribed a battery of medications - including an anti-depressant, two anti-epileptic drugs known to fight pain, and Ultram, an analgesic. But she was also assigned activities such as walking, yoga and relaxation exercises. "I'm still in pain, but when I find myself slipping back, I can catch myself and try to calm down," she says.
