Whether nerve pain is related to cancer, diabetes, kidney or other diseases, an accident or injury, it can take a toll when severe and persistent. Symptoms may include burning, tingling, sharp or stabbing pain, or a combination of these sensations. Sometimes the pain is there all the time, sometimes it comes and goes. It can even cause depression and anxiety.
There are ways to manage neuropathic pain — also called nerve pain. Hear about the causes and consequences of unrelieved nerve pain and the range of treatment approaches, including palliative care, that can improve quality of life. Learn what can work and what to avoid.
