Neuralgia is a burning, stabbing and severe pain that occurs when a nerve has been damaged. Even the slightest touch to the area can send an excruciating jolt through the body. Because it’s difficult to pinpoint the cause of the pain, neuralgia may create a dreary outlook for the future. Neuralgia symptoms can occur in any part of the body and can affect individuals of any age.

Neuralgia Statistics

Statistics suggest that neuralgia symptoms exist in close to one million people in the United States, or three in every 1,000 people. Because the pain is different than an ache or a throb, many people may not realize that there is hope available and treatments that can change your life.

Causes of Neuralgia

Individuals that suffer from neuralgia have dealt with some type of trauma to a nerve. The nerves in the body are protected by a coating that is referred to as the myelin sheath. When this coating is damaged or worn, neuralgia may occur. The most noticeable symptoms are the stabbing, severe pain from the damaged nerve. Neuralgia may be caused by several things.

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Infection
  • Diabetes
  • Pressure on the nerves
  • Some medications
  • Trauma caused by surgery
  • Chemical irritations
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Rare blood diseases

Common Neuralgia Symptoms

The most common symptoms of neuralgia are sharp, stabbing, severe pains in a certain area of the body. If the pain can’t be treated with over the counter pain relievers and doesn’t seem to go away, you should schedule a visit with a physician immediately. You may also develop shingles, which cause a blistering rash, typically on the abdomen or the back.

Treatments will vary based on the severity of your condition, but miVIP offers a minimally invasive neuroplasty to repair the damaged nerve that is causing you pain.
