Pain getting on your nerves?
Living with pain may severely impact your quality of life – daily activities can become a real battle. Unsurprisingly many people become less active which is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you’ve been putting up with ongoing pain talk to your doctor about identifying the causes of your pain in order to find the best way to manage it.  You could be suffering from nerve pain, also known as neuropathic pain, a condition that needs to be managed and treated properly.

What does nerve pain feel like?
There isn’t one type of nerve pain. Commonly caused by damage to the nerves or nerve abnormalities, it can affect almost any part of the body including the brain and spinal cord with people describing the symptoms in a variety of ways:

  • A severe burning sensation
  • Numbness
  • Constant stabbing pain
  • Recurring electric shocks
  • Sudden jolts of pain
  • Chronic tingling or a prickly feeling

If some of these symptoms sound familiar, there’s a real possibility you have nerve pain. Your doctor will discuss the most appropriate options for managing your nerve pain.
