Updated: Sep 12, 2023

QUESTION:

We want to know more about core stroke pain, pins and needles sensation over one half of the body. No one talks about it!

-G.M.

ANSWER:

Core stroke pain, also known as central post-stroke pain (CPSP) or central pain syndrome, is a form of chronic pain that can occur after a stroke. It is characterized by persistent, often intense pain on one side of the body, affecting areas such as the face, torso, and/or limbs. The exact cause of CPSP is not fully understood, but it may involve damage or changes in the brain's pain-processing pathways.


Pins and needles sensations, medically referred to as paresthesia, can also occur as a result of a stroke. Paresthesia is often described as a tingling, pricking, or numbness sensation. It can affect various parts of the body, including the arms, legs, hands, and feet.
