Because nerves are essential to everything you do, nerve pain can seriously affect your quality of life.
Nerve pain can take many forms like burning, tingling, stiffness, or spasms. Because nerves are involved with everything the body does, there can be many causes for the pain. Some of those causes include (but are not limited to): compression or trauma to a nerve, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and nutritional deficiencies. Oftentimes nerve damage is progressive, so it is important to consult a doctor when you first notice symptoms in order to reduce the likelihood of permanent damage.
Physical therapy, nutritional changes, and medication may be recommended, depending on the cause of pain. Acupuncture may also help relieve nerve pain.
