Neuropathic pain is a complex, chronic pain state that usually is accompanied by tissue injury. With Neuropathic pain, the nerve fibres themselves may be damaged, dysfunctional, or injured. These damaged nerve fibres send incorrect signals to other pain centres. The impact of nerve fibre injury includes a change in nerve function both at the site of injury and areas around the injury.

For an example of Neuropathic pain is called phantom limb syndrome. This rare condition occurs when an arm or a leg has been removed because of illness or injury, but the brain still gets pain messages from the nerves that originally carried impulses from the missing limb. These nerves now misfire and cause pain.

Neuropathic pain often seems to have no obvious cause; but some common causes of Neuropathic pain include:

  • Amputation
  • Back, leg and hip problems
  • Chemotherapy
  • Diabetes
  • Facial nerve problems
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Spinal Surgery
