General Discussion
Central pain syndrome is a neurological disorder caused by damage to the main nervous system (CNS). Common signs consist of discomfort as well as loss of feeling, generally in the face, arms and/or legs. Pain is frequently constant and can be moderate, moderate, or severe in strength. Affected individuals could end up being oversensitive to unpleasant stimulations. The specific kind of pain experience could vary from one individual to an additional based, partially, upon the underlying source of the disorder and the area of the central nerves impacted. Central pain disorder could possibly interfere with a person’s daily program. In severe cases, the discomfort could be painful as well as unrelenting and also drastically affect an individual’s lifestyle. Central pain syndrome could create following a selection of problems including stroke, numerous sclerosis, spinal cord injury, or human brain lumps.

For many years, it was believed that most situations of main discomfort disorder were due to damage of the thalamus usually dued to a stroke. The condition was often described as thalamic pain disorder or Dejerine-Roussy syndrome after 2 French neurologists that reported on the condition in the very early 1900s. Actually, to some degree main pain came to be associated with thalamic discomfort disorder for years. However, researchers now understand that damage to other areas of the CNS can trigger main discomfort disorder, including cases following a stroke. Consequently, the favored name for this group of disorders is central discomfort disorder to recognize that harm to different locations of the CNS (and also not mainly the thalamus) could trigger central discomfort which a stroke is not always the main source. The recommended term for the certain subtype of central pain disorder dued to CNS damage as a result of a stroke is main post-stroke pain.
