5 Common Types Of Neuropathic Pain And Their Symptoms
Central pain syndrome
Central pain syndrome is a neuropathic pain condition that can be caused by stroke, multiple sclerosis, tumors, epilepsy, brain or spinal cord trauma or Parkinson’s disease. Although pain is almost always constant in people suffering from central pain syndrome, it can vary in terms of severity from moderate to severe. Furthermore, pain can be aggravated by a number of factors including temperature, movement, touch or even emotions. Central pain syndrome differs from peripheral neuropathic pain in that it directly affects the central nervous system.
As with all medical issues, you will want to be sure to discuss any plans for treatment with a licensed medical practitioner. Only a health provider who is familiar with both your health history, current condition and the neuropathic pain condition you are suffering from is qualified to dispense any type of advice. Neuropathy treatment often includes prescription, medications, physical therapy, nerve stimulation therapy or other therapies. The approach (or combination of approaches) that is used will be highly dependent on your situation.
