Resumo

Accurate diagnosis and treatment of pain is dependent on knowledge of the variables that might alter this response. Some of these variables are the locality of the noxious stimulus, the sex of the individual, and the presence of chronic diseases. Among these chronic diseases, hypertension is considered a serious and silent disease that has been associated with hypoalgesia. The main goal of this study was to evaluate the potential nociceptive differences in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) regarding the locality of the stimulus, i.e., the temporomandibular joint or paw, the sex, and the role of ovarian hormones in a model of mechanical nociception (Von Frey test) or formalin-induced inflammatory nociception. Our results indicate that SHR had lower orofacial mechanical nociception beyond the lower mechanical nociception in the paw compared with WKY rats. In a model of formalin-induced inflammatory nociception, SHR also had decreased nociception compared with normotensive rats. We also sought to evaluate the influence of sex and ovarian hormones on orofacial mechanical nociception in SHR. We observed that female SHR had higher mechanical nociception than male SHR only in the paw, but it had higher formalin-induced orofacial nociception than male SHR. Moreover, the absence of ovarian hormones caused an increase in mean arterial pressure and a decrease in paw nociception in female SHR. (AU)
