Nerve pain of unexplained origin
About 300,000 people in Germany (out of 82 million inhabitants) suffer from nerve pain. Usually the causes are known, and shingles, slipped disc pain or nerve damage are diagnosed. Often, however, the cause remains unclear and cannot be determined for certain, even using modern scientific methods. If one nerve is affected, the condition is called mononeuropathy, while if several nerves are affected it is called polyneuropathy.
The pains have different symptoms, with sometimes burning pain, chronic pain, tingling or pins and needles, or at other times stabbing pains or pins and needles, itching or cramps. The pains are not always constant, they can occur in attacks and are activated by certain triggers such as heat or cold, touch or pressure.
