Aching or Burning Pain

Paresthesia can cause a person's extremities to feel aching or burning pain. Achiness is a continuous and localized pain at mild or moderate levels. It's generally described as dull discomfort, similar to that of sore muscles. Burning pain is distinct from dull or achy pain in that it feels like the skin is on fire. This type of pain is generally associated with nerve problems.

Although these sensations can be a symptom of paresthesia, the condition is generally painless.
