Nerve pain can be a minor annoyance or a devastating, life-changing challenge that requires extensive therapy to alleviate. This variance is because nerves carry signals to and from the brain, including messages that control movement, sensations and pain, and involuntary functions like breathing and heartbeat.
The issue involves pain sensations emanating from damaged or aggravated nerves. Luickly, there are treatments that can help you live a fuller life, whether your nerve pain is minor or severe. All things considered, the severity often correlates with how aggressive the treatment may be.

Nerve pain comes in many varieties. Sensory nerve damage may produce pain, sensitivity, numbness, tingling or prickling, burning sensations, problems with positional awareness and balance, or other symptoms.
