Central Pain Syndrome Definition:
- Central pain syndrome is a neurological condition caused by damage to or dysfunction of the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord. This syndrome can be caused by stroke, multiple sclerosis, tumors, epilepsy, brain or spinal cord trauma, or Parkinson’s disease. The character of the pain associated with this syndrome differs widely among individuals partly because of the variety of potential causes.
What has caused my chronic pain?
We mostly think of neck pain coming from some kind of major trauma. Whiplash is likely the best known type of neck pain. It is caused during a traffic accident when the neck snaps back and forth. What makes whiplash so difficult to live with is that some symptoms associated with the trauma may not show up for weeks or even months down the road. Insurance companies are famous for denying whiplash claims after a certain point, but you still have to deal with chronic pain. If this sounds like your situation, contact the office of Interventional Pain Associates in Austin today to learn more.
