Can you imagine living in a world where caresses hurt, in which the rubbing of clothing hurts you and human warmth is not possible? Unfortunately, you don't have to imagine it. That world exists and is lived by people with allodynia.
Chronic pain can interfere with the ability to touch, feel, hug, or be hugged.
Imagine rolling the back of your hand lightly with a cotton ball. It shouldn't hurt, but now imagine that doing so is suddenly associated with a sensation of severe pain in your hand.

Complex regional pain syndrome can be an extremely sensitive pain problem after some type of tissue injury has been suffered. One of the characteristics of complex regional pain syndrome that makes it so difficult to treat is the severe pain that can be experienced when trying to use a part of the body that is hypersensitive.
What all of these syndromes seem to have in common is what is known as central sensitization, where there is an amplification of pain signals that occur in the brain.

/ ALODINIA, CUANDO LOS ABRAZOS DUELEN /

¿Te imaginas vivir en un mundo dónde las caricias duelan, en el que el roce de la ropa te lastime y el calor humano no sea posible? Por desgracia no es necesario que lo imagines, ya que ese mundo existe y lo viven las personas que padecen alodinia.
Un dolor crónico puede interferir con la capacidad para tocar, sentir, abrazar o ser abrazado.
Imagínate rodar ligeramente el dorso de tu mano con una bola de algodón. No debería doler, pero ahora imagina que hacerlo se asocia repentinamente con una sensación de dolor intenso en la mano.

El síndrome de dolor regional complejo puede ser un problema de dolor extremadamente sensible después de haber sufrido algún tipo de lesión tisular. Una de las características del síndrome de dolor regional complejo que lo hace tan difícil de tratar es el dolor intenso que se puede experimentar al tratar de usar una parte del cuerpo que es hipersensible.
Lo que todos estos síndromes parecen tener en común es lo que se conoce como sensibilización central, donde hay una amplificación de las señales de dolor que ocurren en el cerebro.
