Hyperesthesia, also known as mechanical allodynia
, is characterized by an exacerbated sensitivity to different stimuli of the senses. This affects the perception of pain
, vibration, hot or cold, and touch. Hyperesthesia can be caused by a disease or physiological condition, and the resulting sensation is sometimes described by sufferers as painful, or even unbearable. This condition requires multifactor treatment methods, along with consultations with a doctor, specialist, and psychotherapist. It can be treated with pain relief medication and anxiolytics.
