Answer

Neuropathic pain

  • Patients with central cord syndrome occasionally experience allodynia below the level of injury.

  • The first line of treatment is evaluation and removal of possible exacerbating factors (eg, infections, new pressure ulcers).

  • After that, the possible introduction of anticonvulsant medications should be considered.
