Neuralgia is a form of non-nocioceptive pain. Neuralgia (neuropathy or neuritis) is caused by nerve dsyfunction. Neuralgia is usually caused by a nerve being trapped, compressed or pinched and less commonly caused by some other diseased process. Causes of neuralgia include: 

    • Nerve Degeneration - multiple sclerosis, stroke , brain 
        hemorrhage, oxygen starvation
    • Nerve Pressure – trapped nerve
    • Nerve Inflammation – torn or slipped disc
    • Nerve Infection – shingles and other viral infections.


Types of Neuralgia (Nerve Pain): 

    • Entrapment Neuropathy 
    • Trigeminal Neuralgia
    • Peripheral Neuropathy:
Peripheral Neuropathy is not a disease but a symptom of other diseases. It is associated with loss of function of touch, pain, vibration, positional sense and is associated with painful tingling sensations and numbness. 
    • Phantom Limb Pain: 
Pain arising from a part of the body that has been amputated. 
    •Central Post Stroke Pain:
This pain starts when part of the CNS is injured. It usually occurs after a stroke.
    •Post Herpetic Neuralgia:
Pain that persists after an acute case of Shingles. Shingles is a an acute viral infection of the Peripheral and Central nervous system by the herpes zoster virus. It usually affects a single spinal nerve root. The virus is constantly surpressed. When the immune system become suppressed the virus will acutely infect the nerve.
    • Post Traumatic Neuropathy:
Pain that occurs after an injury or after a medical procedure such as surgery, injections, radiotherapy, etc. 
    •Pudendal Neuralgia:
Pain in the pelvis. Pelvic, perineal region (genitals, perianal). The nerves in these areas are damaged from: delivery of a baby, bone tumors, pelvic surgery, pelvic fracture, direct blunt trauma, excessive cycling, horse back riding, constipation.
    •Sympathetic Pain: 
Pain from the abnormal function of the sympathetic nervous system.
    •Syringomyelia:
Caused by the formation of cavities in the spinal cord, most commonly in the cervical (neck) region . It causes nerve pain (neuralgia), tingling, numbness and muscle atrophy in the upper limbs. It needs to be differentiated from a slipped disc in the neck.
