Infiltration adjacent to or along a nerve. This may be due to recurrent stretch injuries or certain positions like prolonged kneeling and squatting, which cause perineural fibrosis. Oedema after trauma may result in a mini compartment syndrome which may occur when the tunnel was fibrotic

I have perineural fibrosis & was told that it's a build up of scar tissue around the spinal cord from all the surgery I've had, I get nerve pain everywhere now & take amitriptyline to block some of the nerve signals on top of the morphine etc I take already.
