Symptom: Loss of Temperature Sensation

    The loss of pain and/or temperature sensation can accompany any condition that damages the nerve pathways responsible for receiving, transmitting, or processing external stimuli. Therefore, problems with the peripheral nerves in the body as well as conditions affecting the brain or spinal cord may result in the loss of temperature sensation. A wide variety of conditions, ranging from tumors to chronic diseases to infections, can cause damage to the nerves that results in loss of sensation. When loss of sensation occurs in the setting of peripheral neuropathy (damage to the peripheral nerves in the body), antidepressant and antiseizure medications are sometimes used for relief.
