    the strange sensations of CP

    It's amazing what strange sensations central pain can cause. Red-hot burning that feels wet at the same time. Broken bones that stick through skin. Skin scraped off. Appendages stuck together. Electrical shocks. Heaviness. Cramping. Ripping skin and muscles. And many more, all at the same time. Nerves are funky things.

    yes i agree, i remember some nights and days waiting for the breakthrough meds to take effect how to verbalize the sensations i was feeling so i could explain them to the doctors. i though the weirdest were the feeling of my big toe and rest of toes being separated and ripped apart.
    last week i awoke at 7am to the feeling my big toe was being smashed with a jack hammer, weird how i could be asleep like that lying down and get this 8 on the pain square out of nowhere.
    fortunately it didnt last to long, 1 minute here a minute there, squares me though i remember when these attacks would last for constant hours, and i had to wait for the breakthrough meds to hopefully work, usually had to increase the doses higher too,
    reminds me i need to become a criminal and get some reeefer to help with these attacks

    I can't believe you guys expect me to believe all these weirdo CP sensations. Fortunately for you, I have them myself. LOL
    Keep going guys.

    Metro,

    Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is supposedly from nerve/vessel compression in the low neck, upper chest. If so, it is peripheral nerve pain and not central pain. I do not know if any hypersensitization is involved so do not know if it is neuropathic, but from what you say it sounds like it.

    dejerine , i was looking for some other stuff on brain talk i found the TOS information, it seems a lot of the peple were gettng burning and other symptoms that sounded very familiar to Alans shoulder blade popping and upper body pain , i wonder if its possible for some to have developed TOS years after original their original injury..from posture or ?

    I check out that TOS forum (and several others there.) I figure you never know where you might pick up helpful info.

    Congratulate me - my right shoulder blade has gotten as bad as the left! Now I feel like I have two huge skinned lumps, to go with my skinned permacramped abdomen and the rest of my skinned, alcohol, doused body. I can barely use my arms, because of the ripping skin sensation and rubbing bones that occur with even the slightest movement.

    I love this shit. Fidgeting every few seconds to (vainly) try to loosen up my back and sit straight. Inability to concentrate on anything for more than a few seconds at a time before the pain requires a move. What a fun life. And the nights are really great. And I feel like such a wimp, especially seeing all the quads here who are very independent, live alone, work, etc., while I sit here and complain. At least the folks in this forum understand - nobody else without similar sensations seems to.

    I don't have central pain, and I don't really know anything about it now. I'd like to understand it more. As a recently injured para, I've got my fair share of pains to complain about, but I don't think it's much like what you've described.

    Are these sensations occuring all the time? 8/10 on the pain scale for real? How do you manage? Meds? Meditation? Screaming?

    I'd like to hear anything you have to say, and am more than happy to listen to any venting. You've got my respect and empathy for dealing with something I doubt I would be able to.
