I found this article on chesterlaw.com. Very interesting on why after a serious injury your whole body becomes very sensitive to pain.
With central pain syndrome your body becomes hypersensitive to pain.
This may happen because of damage to the thalams which is a brain pain center.
Damage to peripheral tissues brain, brain stem andor spinal column can cause central pain sydrome.
Treatmeant for central pain syndrome is very difficult. Medications such as anti-depressants andor anti-convulsants are used however may not provide complete pain relief.
While not fatal a person with central pain syndrome can have disabling chronic pain and longterm suffering.
