Neuropathic pain is chronic pain caused by damage to sensory nerves and is usually accompanied by tissue damage. The damaged nerve fibres send incorrect nerve signals to pain centres in the brain. This pain is caused by abnormal and incorrect firing of nerve cells and so it does not get better by using normal painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Alternative medication is usually prescribed.
