Neuropathic pain is linked to many medical disorders but has limited options for treatment, unlike chronic pain caused by inflammation.
According to experts in pain management in Miami, this condition is caused by damage in the nerves due to many factors like spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes. Those who experience neuropathic pain feel some sort of electric shock, pins and needles sensation, itching, and numbness in certain areas of their body.
In the U.S., this condition is more prevalent among African-American and Hispanic races compared to the Caucasians between the ages of 35 to 54 years old by around 24 to 32 percent, per the Journal of Pain Research.
