Nerve pain or neuropathic pain can be debilitating for the sufferer. It is the result of damage and/or dysfunction to parts of the sensory nervous system. Nerve pain can be caused by a variety of underlying conditions from local trauma to viral infections.
Patients complain of very severe, intense pain and may describe relentless, burning, sharp, stabbing or electric shock-like pain. There may be an associated loss of function with disability and often the affected area can be hypersensitive. Nerve pain often causes an increase in distress and anxiety and can lead to depression.
