Move radiculitis to Radiculopathy[edit]

I suggest radiculitis be moved to Radiculopathy, and Radicular pain be used throughout this article, because, according to Medterms.com, radiculopathy is synonymous with radiculitis. Any objections? Mikael Häggström 06:49, 16 June 2007 (UTC)


Radiation along Dermatomes?[edit]

Radicular pain does not radiate along Dermatomes. See D. R. Murphy, E. L. Hurwitz, J. K. Gerrard, and R. Clary, “Pain patterns and descriptions in patients with radicular pain: Does the pain necessarily follow a specific dermatome?,” Chiropractic & Osteopathy, vol. 17, no. 9, pp. 1-9, 2009.

Would you like to correct the article, autonomics? I've filled in this "citation template" with the details of your source.

<ref>{{cite journal |author=Murphy DR, Hurwitz EL, Gerrard JK, Clary R |title=Pain patterns and descriptions in patients with radicular pain: does the pain necessarily follow a specific dermatome? |journal=Chiropr Osteopat |volume=17 |issue= |pages=9 |year=2009 |pmid=19772560 |pmc=2753622 |doi=10.1186/1746-1340-17-9 |url=}}</ref>

Just copy and paste it after your correction, and it will appear as a correctly-formatted footnote when you click "save." It'll look like this:
