Hi:

Here is the theoretical scenario.

1. All my voluntary muscles [and their fibers] -- excluding breathing
muscles but including speech muscles -- are relaxed to a state of total
paralysis [no amount of stimulation (whether neural or direct electric
stimulation of the muscle fibers) 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 -- and stress-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.

5. The parts of my brain that deal exclusively with movement,
contraction/relaxation of all voluntary muscles [including speech
muscles but excluding breathing] muscles are also relaxed into a state
of hyperpolarization.

6. The parts of my brain that deal solely with voluntary -- but not
involuntary -- control of breathing are also relaxed into
hyperpolarization.

7. All pain reflexes -- somatic and visceral -- are totally paralyzed.

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 7 listed symptoms end.

My questions:

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

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

Q3. Will I continue to experience any other symptoms after the above 7
listed symptoms stop**? If so, what symptoms?

**The 7 listed symptoms will end in a flash after the hour is up

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
