Abstract

Background and purpose: It has been proposed that stress may contribute to chronic tension-type headache (CTH) through hyperalgesic effects on already sensitized pain pathways in CTH sufferers. This hypothesis could be partially tested by examining effects of stress on mechanical and thermal pain sensitivity in CTH sufferers. Such examinations have not been reported to date.
