Neuropathic pain

Neuropathic pain is caused by damage, injury or dysfunction of nerves due to trauma, surgery, disease or medication. It is described as burning, painful, cold or electric shocks and may be associated with tingling, pins and needles, numbness or itching. Without effective treatment, neuropathic pain can lead to serious disability.

If you or a loved one has neuropathic pain, find more information at the website or call the Pain Link Helpline 1300 340 357.
