Neuropathic Pain: Chronic Pain With Complex Symptoms

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. 

Center for Pain Management specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neuropathic pain. If you need help managing chronic nerve pain, please contact us to schedule an appointment in Indianapolis, Lafayette, or Greenwood: (317) 706-7246.

Causes of Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain may occur due to injuries or illnesses such as: 

  • Diabetes
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Spinal nerve compression (radiculopathy)
  • Multiple sclerosis and other central nervous system disorders
  • Trauma to the spine
  • Post-surgical nerve damage

With a combination of treatment methods, most patients who have neuropathic pain show considerable improvement.

Nerve Pain Treatment

Treatments for neuropathic pain include steroid injections, nerve blocks, and radiofrequency rhizotomy (heating a nerve root to disrupt pain signals). A spinal cord stimulator implant is one of the most effective methods for treating severe and chronic nerve pain.
