Neuropathic pain is an unpleasant sensation that normally occurs as a result of a stimulus such as extreme heat or an injury. It’s the body’s way of warning that it is being damaged – or may be damaged – so that the cause of the pain can be avoided or removed.
The body feels pain through special nerve endings called ‘nociceptors’ that are found in the skin and throughout the body. When these nerve endings are activated – for instance, by touching a sharp knife blade – they send a message to the brain, via pain channels in the nerves, to warn of possible injury. This type of pain is called nociceptive pain.
