Arthritis and related diseases present systemic and local symptoms not infrequently dominated chiefly by persistent, intractable pain or discomfort. Certain of these rheumatic conditions are preëminently painful, such as neuritis, bursitis, fibrositis and traumatic conditions of muscle, tendon, fascia and joint. While rheumatoid arthritis often is associated with discomfort, it is not as likely to present localized, intractable involvement of one or more joints, as osteoarthritis. We have been impressed by the frequency of severe, localized pain in many of these ailments, for which ordinary systemic and local measures fail to give sufficient or enduring relief.
