Since neuropathic pain is different from noci-ceptive pain and requires a different therapeutic approach, the management of neuropathic pain is complicated and continues to be a challenge [4]. This chapter discusses the available clinical practice guidelines for neuropathic pain and their usefulness in the clinical practice setting.   Neuropathic pain (neuralgia) is a pain that comes from problems with signals from the nerves. There are various causes. It is different to the common type of pain that is due to an injury, burn, pressure, etc. Traditional painkillers such as paracetamol, .

  Neuropathic Pain is highly prevalent among a number of different patients Woolf and Mannion. Lancet ; Neuropathic pain Spontaneous pain Stimulus-evoked pain Mechanisms Metabolic Traumatic ToxicIschemic Hereditary Compression Infectious Immune-related Syndrome Symptoms Pathophysiology Etiology Nerve damage Neuropathic pain is pain caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system. Neuropathic pain may be associated with abnormal sensations called dysesthesia or pain from normally non-painful stimuli ().It may have continuous and/or episodic latter resemble stabbings or electric shocks.

  Pain can be categorized into four mechanistic types: nociceptive, inflammatory, functional, and neuropathic. 1 Nociceptive pain, a transient response to a noxious stimulus, performs a protective function to prevent tissue injury. Inflammatory pain, in which tissue damage causes both spontaneous pain and hypersensitivity, also has a protective function that may prevent further insults .

In addition, there may be a high degree of interpatient variability. Context and Policy Issues. Neuropathic pain typically develops as a result of lesions or disease that results in damage to the nervous system including areas such as the peripheral nerve, the dorsal root ganglion or dorsal root, or the central nervous system.

Neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain (NP) has been defined as a “pain arising as a direct consequence of a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system”.1–4 NP results from maladaptive neuroplastic responses that follow a “damage” to the nervous system from a large range of potential causes (ie, peripheral neuropathies, spinal cord injuries, and brain lesions).
