Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Epidemiological data on the frequency, quantity, and consequences of symptomatic diabetic neuropathy remain poor. We conducted this study to examine the characteristic of neuropathic pain in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM).
Materials and Methods: Average daily pain intensity was measured using a 100 mm visual analog scale (VAS). Localization of the pain, position that aggravated pain, frequency of the pain, duration of the pain, pain’s influence on daily living activities were examined.
Results: The average patient age was 62.56 years and the number of males was 21 (42%). 29 Patients had only DM and 13 patients had hypertension (HT) plus DM, 4 patients had DM+HT+heart disease. The mean of pain according to VAS was 6.86±2.79. Thirty-two patients defined that the pain affected their daily living activities negatively; 30 patients’ pain localization was lower extremity,12 patients’ was upper and lower extremity; mostly pain was aggravated by standing and 40 patients’ pain frequency was as every day; 24 patients’ pain duration was less than 1 year and 18 patients’ was between 1-5 years.
Conclusion: Studies on diabetic neuropathy are important drivers to improve the treatment of these patients. Neuropathic pain is considered to be more serious than other types of pain. So patients diagnosed with DM should be examined for neuropathic pain and the treatment plan should include pain decreasing medication and/or neurosurgical interventions.

Keywords: Diabetes mellitus; neuropathic pain, pain; spinal cord stimulation
