Nerve pain

What is nerve pain?

Nerve pain, or neuropathic pain, is usually due to damaged nerves that send false signals that result in chronic pain. Also, the signals may not function to register the pain associated with an injury normally. In a case like this, the person may lack a pain response indicating injury. Sometimes, no reasons can be found for nerve pain.  In other instances, there are many reasons for nerve pain from diabetes and shingles to cancer.

Symptoms of nerve pain can vary from patient to patient and may encompass the following:

  • Stabbing pain
  • Prickling pain
  • Burning pain
  • Tingling pain
  • Loss of feeling or numbness
  • The above descriptions of pain that can get worse at night and cause difficulty sleeping
  • The above descriptions of pain that worsens over time or becomes progressive
