Somnolence and dizziness are the most common side effects rousy carbamazepine. Any patient may experience one or more of these components of this neuropathic pain.

This provides indirect evidence for the damage of central neurons from N-methyl-D-aspartate-receptor activation in central sensitization. Antiplatelet medications especially cilostazol may have a role in the treatment of central post-stroke pain.

In general, the term central post-stroke pain is now preferred to describe the neuropathic pain after stroke as thalamic syndrome cannot be considered synonymous with all central pains.

Central pain was first described in by German neurologist L. It is particularly effective for the spontaneous intermittent component of pain or thermal allodynia. In particular, one study showed that involvement of the anterior pulvinar nucleus and surrounding nuclei as highly correlating with development of thalamic pain 1. Overall results to relieve pain in the patients are variable but encouraging.

Indeed, multiple studies have cited involvement of the ventroposterior aspect in thalamic lesions as being crucial to the development of this syndrome Diffusion tensor tractography DTT shows a 3-dimensional view and estimation of the function of the spinothalamic tract.


Central Sensitization Central sensitization is the increased synaptic efficacy of the central afferent neurons leads to spontaneous pain or nociception on suboptimal stimulus.

Thereafter, and up until recently, central pain became synonymous with thalamic pain syndrome. Consequentially, many will undergo some form of pain treatment and adjust to their new lives as best they can.

For information about clinical trials sponsored by private sources, contact: A spontaneous bursting pattern of multifocal asynchronous electrical activity has been recorded in the deafferented thalamic nuclei, with the help dejerie microelectrodes, in patients of central post-stroke pain.
