Pain caused by a neurological issue
(neuralgia) can be difficult to live with. Neuralgia is a chronic
condition of pain that does not get better on its own. It also does
not respond well to typical, over the counter medications for relief.
Patients suffering from neuralgia need attention from a professional
neurologist to correctly diagnose and treat it.
Neuralgia is commonly experienced in
the face, back, and neck. It occurs as an extreme, short burst of
pain. It usually feels like a sharp or burning sensation. The feeling
often trails down the length of the affected nerve. Although each
experience of pain is short lived, it can continue to occur and get
worse over time if left untreated.
