SYMPTOMS / CAUSES

Nerve pain is a condition that affects the nerves in your body, mostly those from the spine. The most common symptom of nerve pain is tingling, numbness and burning in the hand. Nerve pain can also affect other parts of the body such as buttocks, legs and feet.

CAUSES

Nerve pain can be quite devastating to an individual. Diverse types of nerve pain can occur and can impact your life in many different ways. For example, intractable pain syndrome or migraine headaches are commonly afflicted by nerve pain. Nerve pain is defined as a persistent, throbbing sensation that originates from the brain and travels along nerves through the body. It can result from a wide range of disorders including:

  • A structural pathology like a disc prolapse, protrusion or herniation
  • Degenerative changes such as stenosis
  • Inflammation of a nerve
  • Developmental dysfunctions
