Nerve Pain Q & A

Nerve Pain is caused by damage or injury either to the nerves that send messages to your brain to signal pain, or to the brain itself. Some common causes for nerve pain includes Diabetes, facial nerve conditions, Central nervous system disorders such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Other causes of neuropathic pain include chemotherapy drugs, radiation therapy, amputation, which can cause phantom limb pain, spinal nerve compression or inflammation, trauma or surgeries with resulting nerve damage, and tempers that press on the nerves

Some common symptoms of nerve pain might include a burning, stabbing, or electric shock-like pain, tingling, numbness, or a “pins and needles” feeling. Other symptoms include extreme sensitivity to touch, extreme or increased pain sensation, a decreased pain response, and insomnia or difficulty sleeping due to stress and pain.

The treatment of knee osteoarthritis using hyaluronic acid injections to improve the functions of the knee joint is called knee viscosupplementation. It is a method by which a small amount of hyaluronic acid is injected into your knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. The hyaluronic acid will improve the lubricating properties of the synovial fluid in your knee and reduce the pain from osteoarthritis. Viscosupplementation will not cure osteoarthritis. It will only improve the mobility of your knee and slows the progression of osteoarthritis.

Nerve pain is usually treated with over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Other treatments include topical treatments such as Lidocaine or capsaicin. Usually these come in the form of patches, creams, or ointments and are applied directly to the affected areas. Other treatments for nerve pain include nerve blocks which Dr. Rehan Ali does at an outpatient surgical center. Additional treatments include spinal cord stimulators, physical therapy, and surgery.
