What is neuropathic pain?

click here2

Neuropathic pain is about a problem in the nerves. The nerves transmit signals from an injured body part, that sort of pain is called "nociceptive" as it is about tissue damage. When the nerve itself is unwell, this is called "neuropathic pain". Examples of neuropathic pain included post - shingles pain or post herpetic neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy - where nerves are damaged by diabetes, and phantom pain, where pain continues after amputation.
