Ayurvedic Treatment for Central Pain Syndrome (CPS)


Central Pain Syndrome (CPS) is a neurological disorder which results from damage to or dysfunction of the central nervous system (the system which comprises the brain, brainstem, and spinal cord.

The chief causes of Central Pain Syndrome can be brain hemorrhage, stroke, brain tumor, aneurysm, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, brain trauma/injury, spinal cord trauma, or surgeries which involve the brain and the spinal cord.

Central Pain Syndrome differs from other pain disorders in terms of origin of the pain. In this disorder, persistent pain comes from the brain rather than from the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (that is, peripheral nerves). This persistent pain may be caused by dysfunctional nerves or inflammation, and may last for several weeks or several years. In some cases, Central Pain Syndrome may become a lifelong condition.

The pain suffered by the patients of Central Pain Syndrome is often described as excruciating or agonizing, and it can generally range from moderate to severe. In patients suffering from severe pain, even a light touch of clothing, blankets, or a strong wind may lead to a painful sensation.

Broadly, some of the factors which can worsen the pain for Central Pain Syndrome patients include: touch, stress, strong emotions like anger, exercise and other movements, loud noises, reflexive/involuntary movements like yawning or sneezing, sun exposure, bright lights, wind, rain, temperature changes, altitude changes, and barometric pressure changes.


The pain which is typically experienced by people suffering from Central Pain Syndrome is felt in the form of different kinds of sensations which can be categorized as the symptoms of the disorder. Some of these sensations characteristically include:

  • Sharp pain
  • Aching
  • Stabbing pain
  • Numbness
  • Freezing
  • Tearing
  • Itching which leads to pain
  • Prickling or tingling sensation
  • Burning sensation.

The symptoms of Central Pain Syndrome, and the pain experienced by the patients, may vary greatly for different patients. Overall, the pain associated with this disorder can be any of the following:

  • Constant pain
  • Intermittent pain
  • Pain limited to a specific part of the body
  • Pain which is widespread throughout the body.


The treatment of Central Pain Syndrome is quite challenging because the disorder is difficult to treat. The line of treatment for the disorder largely depends on the neurological damage suffered by the patients. Doctors mostly prescribe analgesics (pain medications) to relieve the patients from pain. In some cases, antiepileptic medications or antidepressant medications are also prescribed.
