Neuropathic Pain Information

APMA has partnered with NPS MedicineWise to produce these best practice information sheets for people suffering nerve pain and their GPs treating neuropathic pain.

Nerve pain (also called neuropathic pain) is caused by damage or injury to nerves from conditions like shingles, diabetes, stroke and HIV. Nerve pain is different from other types of pain and simple pain medicines have little effect.
