Paradoxical heat sensation

Yup, a nice new symptom to worry about "Paradoxical heat sensation" according to google is more usually associated with multiple sclerosis or uremic polyneuropathy, one has to search very hard to find any mention of fibromyalgia...too tired to read this article now, will have to come back to it - if I remember...Entrez PubMed: "Quantitative and qualitative perceptual analysis of cold dysesthesia and hyperalgesia in fibromyalgia...

The combination of cold hyperesthesia, cold dysesthesia, and multimodal hyperalgesia suggests a selective pathophysiology at a particular level of integration, possibly in the insular cortex. It is suggested that the aberrations revealed by the supraliminal sensory evaluation may be generic for FMS. Particularly, the aberrations established in all patients for perceived quality and intensity in the cold sensory channel may be an additional diagnostic criterion.
