Definition of the noun Allodynia

What does Allodynia mean as a name of something?


  1. Pain produced by innocuous stimulation of normal skin; may result from sensitization of central pain pathways in migraine


Allodynia is a pain due to a stimulus which does not normally provoke pain. Temperature or physical stimuli can provoke allodynia, which may feel like a burning sensation, and it often occurs after injury to a site. Allodynia is different from hyperalgesia, an extreme, exaggerated reaction to a stimulus which is normally painful.
