What is the difference between the medical terms "paresthesias" and "dysesthesias"?

Itching versus pain

Nerve
Paresthesias refer to abnormal sensation "numbness and tingling" which can be annoying. Dysesthesias are a more intense version of the same sensation which you would call painful. The sensations run on the same nerve endings, again one is just more intense than the other.
