Hi:

Please forgive me for my hypothetical questions. I am just so
interested in what theoretical. I just can't help it. I apologize
profusely if anyone is annoyed. Here is the hypothetical scenario.

1. All my voluntary muscles -- excluding breathing muscles but
including speech muscles -- are relaxed to a state of total paralysis
[no amount of stimulation could cause these muscles to contract or
"un-relax"]. Thus I am unable to move or vocalize.

2. While my breathing muscles are not paralyzed, my voluntary control
of them is totally lost [this means that my autonomic nervous system
has complete control over my respiration].

3. The motor nerves supplying my voluntary muscles -- including speech
muscles but excluding breathing muscles -- are also relaxed into total
paralysis [these motor nerves are hyper-polarized] and unable to
"un-relax".

4. My entire autonomic nervous system [and their effectors], my heart's
natural pacemaker, my natural pain-relieving mechanisms, smooth muscles
[including those in the respiratory system], endocrine, hormonal, and
immune systems remain totally unresponsive to the infliction of even
the most excruciating pain.

The above symptoms are induced by some mysterious power and last for an
hour. Ten minutes after the above symptoms start, each and every
A-delta fiber throughout my body are stimulated all at the same time by
that same mysterious source and does not cause any actual injury. The
massive A-delta stimulation then ends [in an abrupt and sudden "flash"]
10 minutes before the above 4 listed symptoms end.

My questions:

Q1. What symptoms -- other than the obvious sharp pain -- will I
experience during the A-delta stimulation?

Q2. What symptoms -- other than the obvious loss of the sharp pain --
will I experience after the A-delta stimulation stops?

Q3. Will I continue to experience any other symptoms after the above 4
listed symptoms stop**? If so, what symptoms?

**The 4 listed symptoms will end in a flash after the hour is up

http://courses.washington.edu/conj/sensory/pain.htm

Quotes from the above site:

"An A-delta fiber responds to either mechanical stimuli or temperature
stimuli in the painful realm and produces the acute sensation of sharp,
bright pain."

"By contrast, a C fiber can respond to a broad range of painful
stimuli, including mechanical, thermal or metabolic factors. The pain
produced is slow, burning, and long lasting."


Thanks,

Radium

Stuart, my question is serious. I request a serious response, please. I
know my question is far-fetched but please resist the temptation to
post messages that joke about my question or otherwise trivialize its
seriousness.

This isn't the first time you've asked something which at first sight seems
to be nonsense. Why are you asking these questions. What's your agenda?

The last time, wasn't he asking something like "How much would it hurt
to have third-degree burns all over my body?"?

One day he will say "How would it feel to have a brain?" and the rest
of us might be able to give him some sort of answer.

I have no agenda. I am just interested in this question of mine.
