What Is Nerve Pain?
Nerves run throughout your entire body, sending messages from the brain and to the brain. These nerves, along with your brain and spinal cord, make up your nervous system. This system is essential to the proper functioning of your body.
When nerves are not sending and receiving messages properly, problems such as nerve pain can develop.
What Causes Nerve Pain?
Nerve pain can be caused in a few different ways. One of the most common reasons for nerve pain is a pinched nerve. A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve becomes trapped between inflamed tissue or some other structure. This can happen due to an injury or because of other conditions which cause inflammation in the body.
Another cause of nerve pain is autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune disorders cause the body to move into an inflammatory state or immune response for no reason. When this happens, nerves can also become inflamed or pinched between inflamed tissues.
