This is in line with previous findings indicating hypoalgesia in hypertensives.
ARF caused by CP has also seen reported to impair motor activity, cause depression-like behavior and hypoalgesia in mice.7 Other studies have also revealed alterations in the central nervous system (CNS) related to accumulation of uremic toxins and inflammatory mediators caused by hormonal imbalances in the brains of patients affected by ARF and chronic kidney disease (CKD).8

Stress induced somatic hypoalgesia mediated by descending pain inhibitory pathways involving opioidergic, glutaminergic, and serotonergic systems can be accompanied by a stress induced visceral hyperalgesia indirectly mediated by sympathetic and/or parasympathetic nerves stimulating the release of chemicals from mast and enterochromaffin like (ECL) cells within the gut wall which sensitizes the visceral afferent terminals.
Regardless, researchers have shown that correlating a particular environmental context (an NS) with painful stimulation (electric shock) actually decreases the aversive value of shock when it is later presented in that same environment (i.e., "conditioned hypoalgesia"; Domjan 2005).
