Skin | Neurology | Thermoanesthesia (Symptom)


Thermoanesthesia is the suppression of heat sensitivity. The loss of pain and / or temperature sensation may accompany any condition that damages the nerve pathways responsible for receiving, transmitting or processing of external stimuli.


Therefore, the problems with the body's peripheral nerves and the conditions affecting the brain or spinal cord can result in loss of temperature sensation. A wide variety of conditions, ranging from tumours to chronic diseases to infections, can cause nerve damage resulting in loss of sensitivity. When there is loss of sensation in the vicinity of peripheral neuropathy (damage to peripheral nerves of the body), antidepressants and anticonvulsants are sometimes used for relief.
