Neuropathic pain: "normal" or physiologic pain is associated with an inflammatory response that is part of the healing process. Pathophysiologic pain is pain that continues even after healing has occurred and painful stimulation has ceased. When pain is due to a functional abnormality of the nervous system, the term neuropathic pain is used. See pain management to diagnose and treat the condition.
