Neuropathic Pain Common in Pregnant Women with Lumbopelvic Pain.

Neuropathic pain is often described as shooting or burning pain, which can resolve on its own or become chronic in nature. A recent study found that up to 37% of pregnant women with lumbopelvic pain also experience neuropathic pain. According to researchers, the presence of lumbopelvic pain increases the risk of neuropathic pain by about 600%! Further analysis showed that the combination of neuropathic pain and lumbopelvic pain can take a substantial toll on an expectant mother’s functional status as well as her quality of life.
