Nerve Pain

Few days following hair transplant surgery (including FUE), some patients say they experience nerve pain. Sometimes referred as occipital nerve pain, post-op nerve sensitivity or neuropathic pain. This pain is believed to be caused by damaged nerves. The main symptom is sharp pain at the donor area + very sensitive to touch. Gets worse at night for some reason. I have read that this may be caused by trauma to the occipital nerve during administration of the local anaesthetic. Does a manual punch vs motorized punch make any difference? Is this caused by the punch going too deep? What do you think? Have you experienced this? On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad was your pain? When did it start? How long did it last? How did you treat it? How can this be avoided?
