What Does Nerve Pain Feel Like?
Nerve symptoms and pain can present as burning, aching, tingling, or numbness sensation in the impacted area of your body. For most, nerve pain is the most excruciating pain ever felt — some complaints of mild and intermittent symptoms. Regardless of the severity of symptoms, nerve-related issues need targeted corrective care. Restorative care is possible when the root-causes are addressed or treated. The actual cause of pain or symptoms can vary. Regardless of the reason, target non-surgical methods of care can address and treat issues that lead to a nerve disorder. In this article, we will focus on the most common causes of nerve pain in your neuro-musculoskeletal systems (muscles, ligaments, joints, and nervous systems). We will provide brief answers as well as the therapy options you need for a healthier life.
Nerve Pain Is A Neurological Disorder
Nerve disorder is a common neurological condition linked to a sudden traumatic event, like a slip or a fall, a car accident, or a sports injury. It may also result from poor posture, prolonged sitting, obesity, and diabetes.
“Neuropathy” is a general term used to describe nervous diseases or neurological damage. There are over 100 conditions that cause neuropathic pain symptoms. Some are far more common than others, and a few are far more severe. Common signs of neuropathy or neuropathic pain (nerve pain) are limited to the extremities (legs, ankles, feet, toes, arms, wrists, hands, or fingers).
Common signs of nerve damage include limited motion, pain, numbness or tingling, headaches, migraines, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and fatigue. Now that we have covered some basics on nerve pain (neuropathic pain) let’s look at the common conditions that cause it.
The Aching Pinched Nerve
Pinched nerve results when nearby tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, spinal discs, or joints, compress or irritate the nerve. Nerves are delicate and highly sensitive tissues. The slightest pressure on a nerve leads to irritation and nerve damage. Prolonged impingement of a nerve can lead to permanent nerve damage. In essence, a pinched nerve is a neurological disorder needing urgent repair. Common conditions caused by a pinched nerve include sciatica, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and misaligned spinal bones.
An Aching Weak leg, Sciatica Nerve & Sciatica
Sciatica is a painful condition that causes shooting or radiating aches down one or both legs. Symptoms of sciatic nerve dominate along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve emerges from the lower back and runs down the leg, ending at the feet. Nerve disorders such as leg pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness are the results of sciatic nerve impingement or compression.
Sciatica is the most common source of nerve symptoms. Leg pain and sciatica happens when the vertebrae of the backbone are misaligned or if you have a slipped disc. Nerve issues related to sciatica may also come about from muscular spasms of the gluteus muscles, piriformis muscle, or the hamstrings.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS, is a common nerve-related disorder that causes numbness, tingling, burning sensations, and discomfort in the hand, wrist, or arm. It occurs with compression, damage, or irritation of the median nerve at the wrist before the nerve enters that hand. The median nerve is the main nerve that controls the function of the wrist, hand, and fingers. Prolonged or neglected carpal tunnel condition can result in weakness of the hands and permanent damage, such as paralysis.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
Thoracic outlet syndrome or TOS is a known cause of nerve pain. TOS or Thoracic outlet syndrome occurs with the impingement of nerves and vessels near the neck, at the space between your first rib and collarbone. Symptoms of Thoracic outlet syndrome include pain, numbness, tingling, burning sensations, or weakness in shoulders, arms, wrists, or hands.
Slip-Disc & Nerve Pain
Slip disc is the term given to tears and slippage of spinal discs. Herniated and bulging disc (Slip disc) is a common synonym for slipped disc, bulging disc, or herniated disc. The neck and lower back are the most common sites for slip- disc (slipped disc). A slipped disc (slip- disc) in the neck or the lower back impinges nerves and other tissues. The compressive nature of a slip-disc (bulging disc or herniated disc) is the culprit for nerve pain and other nerve-related symptoms (numbness, tingling, burning, or weakness).
