A sensation usually refers to an abnormal sensation of the skin, such as tingling, burning sensations, and so on. The medical name for this type of symptom is paresthesia. Pain is obviously a type of sensation. Another type is numbness, the absence of sensation, and partial numbness is basically the same as paresthesias. Tingling symptoms will often progress to partial numbness and then to numbness as a nerve becomes degraded. There are also various types of sensory symptoms: vision symptoms, taste symptoms, hearing symptoms, touch symptoms, and so on.
