Pain & Depression
Is there any relation between neuropathic pain and depression? This was the first study to explore the relation between these two. Lot of studies are there and relation between chronic pain & depression is well known. Chronic pain can be broadly of three types: 1) nociceptive pain which is because of non-neural tissue damage, 2) neuropathic pain which is because of damage or dysfunction of neural tissue or it can be mixed nociceptive & neuropathic. This study tries to find out whether depression is more common in neuropathic pain or chance of depression is equal in all types of chronic pain.
