Signs or Symptoms of Central Pain Syndrome:
The pain is steady and is usually described as
a burning, aching, or cutting sensation. Occasionally there may be brief,
intolerable bursts of sharp pain.
Central pain is characterized by a
mixture of pain sensations, the most prominent being constant burning.
Mingled with the burning are sensations of cold, "pins and needles"
tingling, and nerve proximity (like that of a dental probe on an exposed
nerve). The steady burning sensation is increased significantly by any
light touch. Patients are somewhat numb in the areas affected by this
burning pain. The burning and loss of touch appreciation are usually most
severe on the distant parts of the body, such as the feet or hands. Pain
may be moderate to severe in intensity and is often exacerbated by
movement and temperature changes, usually cold temperatures.
