Pain

You may feel pain during a stroke depending on the location of the blood vessels involved. Additionally, you may also experience numbness or tingling sensations in the affected regions of the body, e.g., in the face, arms, or legs.

Besides common painful symptoms, many people also complain of experiencing certain strange sensations all over the body like temperature changes, especially extreme cold, after a stroke. Some doctors describe such condition as central pain syndrome or central stroke pain. It usually develops several weeks after an attack and may also improve with time. As this pain or extreme temperature sensation has no physiological origin and it is caused by a problem within the brain, there are very limited treatment options available to treat this condition.
