What does nerve pain feel like?

Nerve pain is described differently from person to person. The most common terms used are burning, tingling, shooting, sharp, stabbing, and prickling. In addition to a different pain sensation, each person experiences a distinct pain intensity. Pain can be localized (felt near the area of nerve damage) or referred (felt somewhere else in the body).
