Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
Introduction: Pain is an obvious important type of sensory symptom. Milder abnormal nerve sensations such as pins-and-needles, tingling, burning, prickling or similar are all known as "paresthesias" and can lead to numbness. The various senses can have problems; see vision symptoms, hearing impairment, taste symptoms, and temperature sensitivity. Any sensory symptoms need medical investigation.
