Burning Sensation

A burning sensation is a particular type of pain distinct from dull, stabbing, or aching pains. Often, a burning kind of pain is related to nerves, but there are many other potential causes. Injuries, natural wear and tear, infections, and autoimmune disorders all have the potential to cause nerve damage and pain. Many causes of a burning sensation have no cure, but treatments are helpful in controlling the pain.
