Neuralgia (Nerve Pain)
Nerve pain feels like shooting or burning pain. It can sometimes go away on its own, however it is often perpetual. Sometimes it is persistent and sometimes it comes and goes over many months. It is the result of nerve damage. The impact of nerve damage changes nerve function, both at the injury location and surrounding areas. Here is what you need to know about treating nerve pain and how to resolve nerve pain.
What Can Cause Nerve Pain?
Neuropathic pain does not start abruptly; it is a perpetual condition and leads to unrelenting pain symptoms. For several patients, the intensity of symptoms worsen throughout time, with brief moments of relief.
Although nerve pain is associated with peripheral nerve problems, like diabetic neuropathy or spinal stenosis, injuries to the brain or spinal cord can also lead to perpetual neuropathic pain. Patients will describe symptoms as sharp, dull, painful symptoms. Other symptoms include: sensitive, itchy, deep, or burning pain. Patients may feel pain with light touch or pressure.
