The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of opioid taper on pain sensitivity in patients with chronic pain. In a well-characterized sample of men and women with chronic neuropathic pain on high-dose opioid therapy, experimental pain responses (cold-pressor, quantitative sensory testing) will be serially described over the course of and following an individualized opioid taper. In addition, functional improvements and subject-level predictors of response will be described.
