Dufree-M 20/1500 Capsule 10's

Neuropathic pain: Neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disease, infection, or injury caused due to damaged sensory nerves. Pain could be intermittent or continuous, which is felt as a prickling, stabbing, tingling, or burning sensation. A feeling of numbness and loss of sensations is also common with neuropathic pain. In normal condition, our body sends the pain signals when there is an injury, but in neuropathic pain, pain is not triggered by an injury, the body unpromptedly sends the pain signals. Symptoms include spontaneous, untriggered pain, unpleasant feeling, shooting, burning or stabbing pain, difficulty resting or sleeping, and evoked pain (pain caused by events usually not painful).
