Pain produced by a malfunctioning of the (CNS) central nervous system
can occur from injury to peripheral nerves that have been cut or exposed to chemotherapeutic agents or viruses.
Definition: Chronic pain which sets in following nerve injury (e.g. following crush, transection or compression of nerves or following nerve degeneration produced by diseases such as diabetes or by viral infections). The underlying mechanisms include chronic alterations in peripheral as well as central components of pain pathways.
Any pain originating from the central nervous system, especially pain affecting the cranial or spinal nerves.
the result of a disturbance of the peripheral or central nervous system that results in pain that may or may not be associated with an ongoing tissue-damaging process
Pain caused by disease of dysfunction, originating in the nerves or nervous system. Also called deafferentation pain or neurogenic pain.
Pain caused by altered excitability of the nervous system, usually caused by dysfunction or injury. Frequently described as a burning, stabbing, or shooting sensation.
Pain that begins or is caused by damage or dysfunction to the nervous system. The pain frequently has burning, lancinating, or electric shock qualities.
Pain that originates in the nerve, usually due to injury or disease.
Pain that results from a disturbance of function or pathologic change in a nerve; in one nerve mononeuropathy; in several nerves, mononeuropathy multiplex; if diffuse and bilateral, polyneuropathy.
Pain caused by damage to nerve tissue. It is often felt as a burning or stabbing pain. One example of neuropathic pain is a "pinched nerve."
Pain caused by disease in, or injury to, the nervous system.
Persistent, chronic pain without an obvious cause. Often associated with damage to nerves or nerve fibers. Such pain is associated with the transmission of abnormal pain signals from injured peripheral nerves to neurons in the brain and spinal cord.
Pain that originates from a damaged nerve within the nervous system.
a different pain experience, because the ability of the nervous system to perceive pain has been damaged by chronic pain.
Chronic pain resulting from injury to the nervous system. The injury can be to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) or the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord). Neuropathic pain can occur after trauma and many diseases such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. It is common and affects more than 2 million people in the US alone. This type of pain is notoriously difficult to treat.
Pain that originates from a damaged nerve or nervous system.
pain due to nerve damage, often severe and often described as burning
A debilitating form of chronic pain that results from peripheral or central nervous system damage. BACK
