Causes & Symptoms of Nerve Pain
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system. Damages from disease or work related injuries or car accident injuries can cause intense nerve pain. Pain caused by nerve damage can feel different to each person. Sometimes nerve pain, also called neuropathic pain, can range from numbness to a burning, tingling, prickling, or a sharp sudden stabbing feeling.
Conditions that can cause nerve pain include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Infections (Lyme disease, shingles, STDs)
- Diseases (kidney, thyroid, or liver)
- Medication or alcohol abuse
- Disc injuries
- Lumbar Radiculopathy
