What You Need To Know About Nerve Pain

Nerve pain, also called neuropathic pain, occurs when a health condition or injury impacts nerves that carry sensation to the brain. It can also include numbness – which while is not necessarily painful, can lead to other complications. Typically, nerve “pain” can range from sharp pain, to nonstop “pins and needles” sensations.

This is especially common in those with diabetes, as prolonged insulin resistance can lead to damaged nerves.

Nerve pain can also be caused or irritated by other lifestyle factors which induce oxidative stress. Poor diet, prolonged inflammation, and more can contribute – but this means there are steps you can take to combat nerve pain.

4 Common Causes of Nerve Pain
Diabetes
Diabetes is the leading cause of peripheral neuropathy. Insulin resistance can damage nerve endings over time by restricting blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet. This can lead to other complications, such as Charctot’s Foot.
Chronic Inflammation
Chronic inflammation not only damages nerve endings, but can contribute to insulin resistance, making it a risk factor for diabetes. Since diabetes is one of the risk factors of peripheral neuropathy, avoiding inflammation is essential to avoiding nerve pain.
Vitamin Deficiencies
Vitamin deficiencies, such as B-12, may cause the “pins and needles” sensation in the hands and feet. Vitamins that play crucial roles in the health and function of the nervous system need to be part of your diet or supplement routine to avoid nerve damage.
Oxidative Stress
Free radicals can damage every cell in your body – including nerve cells. Increase your antioxidant intake and avoid toxins, like pollution, that produce the damaging free radicals that cause Oxidative Stress.
 
WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS FOR RELIEVING NERVE PAIN?

AT WELL THEORY, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CURATE A LIFE LIVED WELL

– IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.

1. Exercise
Your body produces natural painkillers during exercise, called endorphins, that can combat nerve pain. Exercise also promotes better blood flow to the nerves in your extremities, which is a huge benefit for those suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Start with a daily walk, bike rides, and/or a yoga routine.
2. Take Your Time For Self-Care
Soaking in a warm bath is a simple way to relieve nerve pain. Warm water temporarily increases blood flow, helping damaged nerves with better blood flow. Warm water can help ease any stress that prolonged nerve pain is causing as well.
3. Dietary Changes
Dietary changes can lower your blood sugar levels and ease symptoms of diabetes-related neuropathy – and potentially reverse the damage. A diet rich in fiber and low in simple carbohydrates can prevent blood sugar spikes. Additionally, eating antioxidant-rich foods, such as blueberries, flaxseed oil, and more can help combat inflammation.
4. Improve Your Sleep Habits
Nerve pain can worsen at night, disrupting your natural sleep cycles. This can also translate into worse pain over time because when your body rests, your brain and nervous system heal and perform “housekeeping” tasks like clearing our inflammatory free radicals. Limit your caffeine intake, wear blue light glasses at work, and consider taking a natural melatonin supplement that can help improve restful sleep.
5. Use Anti-Inflammatory Supplements
Dr. Warner’s Well Theory Alpha-Lipoic Acid supplement and Nervous System Multi are a powerhouse duo for combating nerve pain. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant and helps ward off damaging oxidative stress. The Nervous System Multi contains several powerful, natural ingredients Dr. Warner recommends to her patients suffering from neuropathy for decreased pain, improved neuron health, and optimized brain health.
