Neuropathic Pain Linked to Chronic Low Back Pain.

Neuropathic pain is pain caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system. Symptoms often include burning or coldness, “pins and needles” sensations, numbness, and itching. A recent study investigated the prevalence of neuropathic pain among a group of 1,200 Korean adults with chronic low back pain. The research team found that not only was neuropathic pain a common complaint among these patients but those with both chronic low back pain and neuropathic pain experienced a lower quality of life and greater disability.
