Neuropathic pain - also known as nerve pain - is a type of chronic pain that occurs when nerves in the central nervous system become injured or damaged. Symptoms are often described as a burning, stabbing, or tingling pain. Sometimes nerve pain starts with numbness and pins and needles and develops into stabbing and burning sensations. With time, nerve pain can spread up the legs from the feet or up the arms from the hands. There are many things you can do to manage the symptoms of nerve pain, including stress management, meditation, and mild exercise. However, the most important step is to work with your doctor to develop an overall pain management program suited to your medical history and nerve pain symptoms.
