Within this text, specific consideration of visceral referred pain is provided within the appropriate chapters as part of differential diagnosis. However, just as we have attempted to separate out the characteristics of somatic and radicular pain, Vecchiet & Giamberardino (1997) have described general aspects of visceral pain that can be borne in mind, particularly for those conditions requiring more urgent referral, for example myocardial infarction, pancreatitis, etc. Initially, the pain is usually felt in the same site along the midline of the chest or abdomen, mainly in the lower sternal area and the epigastric region, regardless of the viscera affected.

This is not the cogwheel resistance to movement encountered in parkinsonism. g. in resisted wrist extension as a test for tennis elbow where the wrist ‘breaks’ due to the sharp pain elicited. Active movements are cited later in this chapter as a useful means of establishing the patient’s willingness to perform the movement. This can relate to the psychosocial influence as well as allowing consideration of any unwillingness caused by actual pain, or fear of producing it.
