Allodynia is a rare type of pain, generally on the skin, that’s caused by something that wouldn’t normally cause pain. This pain type is frequently associated with fibromyalgia, and some people with chronic fatigue syndrome have it as well.

Other conditions associated with allodynia include neuropathypostherpetic neuralgia (shingles), and migraines. Outside of these conditions, allodynia is a rare symptom.
