Nerve pain, also called neuropathic pain is caused by nerve disease or damage to the nerves.
People suffering with neuropathic pain often describe it as burning, aching or similar to little electric shocks. Sufferers may also report numbness, weakness and/or pins & needles.
Nerve pain is different to other types of pain and is treated differently. It cannot usually be relived with traditional pain relief options such as paracetamol or anti-inflammatory medication. This makes it especially important that it is diagnosed correctly.
The condition can be caused by a number of things including:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Post-surgical pain
- HIV infection
- Chemotherapy treatment
