The Types Of Pain And How They’re Different By Dr Brian Blick

If you have pain, it’s likely to be one of several different types. The types of pain vary widely in severity and can have very different causes. It’s important to know which type of pain you have so that you can get the right treatment for your body. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the most common types of pain and how they’re different.


Neuralgia is a type of pain caused by a damaged or irritated nerve. Nerves can be damaged in a variety of ways–by injury, surgery, infection, or even tumors, according to Dr Brian Blick. Neuralgia may come on suddenly or gradually over time.

Neuralgia can be treated with medications that reduce inflammation and swelling around the nerve; physical therapy to increase mobility and strengthen surrounding muscles; injections directly into the affected area (this may be done in combination with other treatments); or surgery to remove excess tissue around a damaged nerve.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition that can develop after an injury or trauma to the body. CRPS typically affects one limb, but it can also affect the face, genitals and torso.

The most common symptoms of CRPS include intense burning pain in areas like your fingers or toes, as well as changes in skin temperature and coloration–for example, your hand may feel icy cold even when it’s warm out. You may also have swelling around your joints or increased sensitivity to touch or pressure on those areas of your body affected by CRPS–Dr Brian Blick if you rub these areas too hard with a washcloth while bathing yourself for example, they’ll hurt much more than usual!


Fibromyalgia pain is often described as aching or burning in the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. It’s not related to any injury or medical condition and isn’t constant throughout the day (though it may feel like it). The location of your pain will depend on which part of your body is affected by fibromyalgia; for example:

• If your lower back hurts when you wake up in the morning then this could be related to poor posture while sleeping which puts pressure on nerves as they exit through small openings called openings between vertebrae bones within our spinal column (backbone).
