Nerve Pain Relief, Causes and Symptoms

Every person has different symptoms of nerve damage.

Sometimes, the nerves become hypersensitive.

Whether it feels like burning, pinpricks, or sudden shocks of electricity, nerve pain can disrupt your life at home and work.

In some cases, nerve damage can cause paralysis and affect things like digestion and breathing.

Symptoms of damaged sensory nerves:

  • Chest pain,
  • Tingling,
  • Pricking,
  • Headache,
  • Itching,
  • Nausea,
  • Swelling.

Nerve pain also tends to get worse over time.

Nerve Pain And Sleep

Nerve pain can become severe enough to disrupt sleep patterns and cause poor quality sleep.

Symptoms associated with neuropathy can make it difficult to fall asleep.

Lack of sleep may cause pain symptoms to worsen.

Nerve Pain And Anxiety

Anxiety and stress do affect the body in many ways.

The most obvious signs of stress symptoms are:

  • Numbness,
  • Burning,
  • Tingling,
  • Pain or discomfort when moving.

As you can see, these symptoms are very similar to what you might feel with nerve pain(neuropathy).

That’s why many people think they have neuropathy when they don’t.

If you assume that’s what you are dealing with, consult your doctor because you won’t be able to address the actual problem. 

How To Relief Nerve Pain

If the nerve pain is caused by a condition like diabetes, HIV, or cancer, getting treatment is the priority.

But it might not necessarily help with your treatment.

Nerve pain may need its own treatment, separate from treatment for the disease that’s causing it.

Topical treatments – like creams, lotions, gels, and patches tend to work best for pain that’s isolated in specific areas on your skin.

Lifestyle changes – Exercise more, quit smoking, control blood sugar levels, take care of your feet, vitamins.

Antidepressants – Studies have shown that using them along with anticonvulsants may have bigger benefits than using them alone.

Antidepressants may help with diabetic nerve pain but might not help with nerve pain caused by HIV or cancer chemotherapy.

Complementary treatments – acupuncture, meditation, massage, and supplements like Nervogen Pro. 

If you are interested in what Nervogen Pro is I did a review covering this supplement:
