Secondly, neuropathic pain which is as a result of actual or potential damage to either the peripheral or central nervous system, for example, diabetic neuropathy and trigeminal neuralgia, commonly described as burning, tingling or shooting sensation. Third and most commonly, nociceptive pain which is caused by the flare-up of sensory nerve receptors in the skin, muscles or internal organs, such as This kind of pain typically tends to lead to chronic persistent pain.
