Neuropathic pain is a pain condition that’s usually chronic. It’s usually
caused by chronic, progressive nerve disease, and it can also occur as the result of injury or
infection. Neuropathic pain is caused by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory system,
including peripheral fibres (Aβ, Aδ and C fibres) and central neurons. Many terms are used
to describe neuropathic pain, such as sharp, shooting or "electrical shock", burning or hot,
tingling, pins and needles, or prickling, stabbing pain.
