Neurological Evaluation of Neuropathic Pain Abstract. Neuropathic pain arises after lesions of the central or peripheral nervous system. The treatment of nociceptive pain - pain in which the somatosensory nervous system is intact - is different from neuropathic pain. Patient history and detailed neurological examination describe the patient's specific pain phenotype, and with additional diagnostic tests the structural damage or functional impairment of the somatosensory nervous system can be identified. Some of these tests have been validated in the assessment of neuropathic pain and comprise MR and ultrasound imaging, histopathological examinations, and neurophysiological studies.
