Neuropathic pain also sometimes called nerve pain (NP) is a prevalent and etiologically complex disease defined as central or peripheral nervous system pain caused by direct injury or dysfunction (1). NP is chronic and progressive, often characterized by continuous or intermittent, as burning or coldness, “pins and needles” sensations, numbness and itching. Causes of NP are numerous and range from metabolic (i.e. diabetes), infectious (i.e. post herpetic neuralgia), autoimmune (i.e. multiple sclerosis), nervous (I.e. trigeminal neuralgia), cancerous, to vascular (i.e. stroke)(1).
