Nerve Pain Management

Nerve pain is a common affliction that can affect individuals of all ages and backgrounds. For those that suffer from it, managing the frequent pain can be a difficult task. Nerve pain is frequently sharp and stinging pain, and can have a significant impact on the quality of life of those it impacts. While nerve pain can often improve or subside on its own, there are ways to successfully manage it with self-care. Following are some of the root causes of nerve pain and ways you can treat it at home.


What Is Nerve Pain?

Neuropathic (nerve) pain is a result of nerves misfiring and sending pain signals, when there is no outward cause for pain. Pain normally occurs when there is some sort of stimulus acting on your body, such as the pain you feel when you stub your toe. Nerve pain on the other hand, is a chronic condition caused by inflamed or irritated nerves.

Are Shingles Contagious?

Shingles are caused by the reemergence of the varicella-zoster virus, which causes chickenpox. After an outbreak of chickenpox, the virus retreats to the person’s nerve cells, where it lies inactive until something (cause yet unknown) triggers its release.
