A shooting or searing sensation is a common description of neuropathic pain. It may go away on its own, but usually it is a long-term problem.
Neuropathic pain can be relentless and terrible at times, and it can come and go of its own accord.
Nerve injury or a dysfunctional nervous system are common causes for neuropathic pain. Nerve damage causes a change in nerve function both at the lesion site and in the surrounding tissues.
Phantom limb syndrome is a type of neuropathic pain. When an arm or a leg is removed due to disease or accident, the brain still receives pain signals from the nerves that used to carry impulses from the missing limb. These nerves are now malfunctioning and cause discomfort.
Tissue and nerve damage can occur as a result of an injury, as well as excessive strain on the nerves. This could happen during surgery or as a result of a serious accident, such as a car accident resulting in a spinal cord injury. Certain infections, such as shingles, can damage nerves and result in neuropathic pain. Neuropathy can also be caused by excessive alcohol consumption. This could be because alcohol causes dietary deficits and toxic nerve damage.
Nerve damage can be caused by a variety of health issues, resulting in neuropathic pain. These are some of them:
As every nerve in your peripheral system serves a distinct purpose, symptoms may vary upon which nerves are injured. Nerves are divided into three types:
Peripheral neuropathy can affect just one nerve (mononeuropathy), two or more nerves in separate regions (multiple mononeuropathy), or a large number of nerves (multiple polyneuropathy) (polyneuropathy). Mononeuropathy manifests itself in the form of carpal tunnel syndrome. Polyneuropathy affects the majority of patients with peripheral neuropathy.
