Neuralgia

It is acute, strong, burning, paroxysmal penetrated pain, spreading along the course of the affected nerve. As a result, pain occurs not only where there is some damage to the tissues or organs of the body, but also in healthy tissues where the nerve passes. The longer the pain lasts, the more sensitive it is to the nerve cells of the spinal cord and brain.
