Neuropathic pain is pain that is caused by damage to the nervous system. Simply put, it is nerve-related pain. It is characterized by chronic pain that is burning and tingling. The pain can be intense—shooting from one location to another. Fortunately, there are drugs and medications available that can help relieve neuropathic pain.
Nerve damage doesn’t show up the same way in everyone. But potential signs and symptoms of neuropathy include temporary or permanent numbness; a tingling, prickling, or burning sensation; increased sensitivity to touch; pain; muscle weakness or wasting; paralysis; dysfunction in organs or glands; or impairment to urination and sexual function.
The symptoms you develop depend on which nerves are affected. For example, autonomic nerve damage can lead to changes in blood pressure or cause symptoms impacting your gastrointestinal system. On the other hand, sensory nerve damage may impact your sense of balance. Last, motor nerve damage can lead to issues with your reflexes and movement.
Your doctor may ask you questions about the history of your pain. He or she may ask you to describe your pain using a scale, such as 0 (no pain) to 10 (unbearable pain), or use other scales and measurements. Once your doctor determines whether your pain is acute or chronic, and uncovers the source of the pain, he or she can determine the best way to treat it. However, doctors often begin treating pain before they identify the cause.
Treating chronic nerve pain can be a challenge, as the cause is not always understood. Traditional painkillers used alone, such as NSAIDs, are often ineffective at treating this type of pain; however, a multimodal treatment approach can keep nerve pain symptoms under better control. This approach includes both traditional painkillers, nontraditional pain medications, and other related pain treatments.
