In brief: Neuropathy

There are numerous causes ; some potential pain management procedures for neuropathy pain.
However, the cause must be established before proper treatment can occur. Some options include nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, sympathetic blocks ; spinal cord stimulators.

This really depends on the cause.
If it's progressive then injection if they work will really be very temporary. Medications may help to a limited extent. If it's a painful neuropathy then spinal stimulation may be useful.
