Context: Condicionada por causas conocidas o desconocidas, ocasiona una sintomatología motora, ***sensorial, sensitiva*** y/o vegetativa dependiendo de la zona que descarga.

As far as I've been able to determine these mean exactly the same thing. Could somebody please explain the difference? Thanks.

I copy below another two definitions of some that may help.
I know that you are a physician, and as such, you know these concepts; but I think that reading the definitions in Spanish make help you to see the difference.
Best luck.

sensory/thermal thresholds/cold and warm sensation


Explanation:
Not sure about this, just that "sensitive" doesn't appear to be used to describe symptomatology in UK English.

Most UK sites just refer to "sensoryand motor" symptomatology.

So I'm just making a bit of a guess when I suggest "thermal thresholds".

The distinction is that "sensitivo/sensitive means "pertaining or relative to the sensations produced by the senses and especially the skin; having the ability to arouse sensitivity; similarly sensorial is pertaining or relative to sensitivity- sensorial seems to be used more in connection to scientific nomenclature, whereas sensitivity is more generic and is used more widely.
