Post stroke pain: Some individuals suffer what is called Thalamic pain, or post stroke pain. This nerve related pain ( neuropathic pain) can be treated with certain classes of medications like antoconvulsants. The best example is Gabapentin. You should request a consultation with a pain specialist.
