Neuropathic pain – also called nerve pain – may occur due to nervous system damage or malfunction. Unlike the pain people feel when they stub a toe or strain a muscle, nerve pain may occur without any obvious cause, and it may radiate from the source of nerve damage to other parts of the body.
In addition to pain, nerve damage may cause a pins-and-needles sensation, numbness, or abnormal sensitivity to touch. The cause of neuropathic pain is often difficult to diagnose without the use of advanced medical imaging tools and diagnostic tests.
