Unexplained Nerve Pain


It is estimated that one in ten Americans over age 40 experiences unexplained nerve pain. Also known as idiopathic nerve pain, this condition can have many causes and can manifest as tingling, numbness, burning, pins-and-needles, “electrical shock,” dull ache or sharp pain. Nerve damage is the underlying problem and can be caused by more than 50 medical conditions, drugs and toxins. Once a nerve is damaged, it may start sending excessive pain messages. The exact cause of some nerve pain may remain unexplained, but there are still therapies to help reduce your pain.

How Our Doctors Diagnose

We begin with a physical examination and a thorough discussion of your medical history. Tests may be run to eliminate common causes of nerve pain, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, certain viruses and exposure to toxins. Even if we cannot pinpoint the exact cause, we have many solutions to help reduce your pain.

Been going to Spine and Joint for the last few years and my experiences have been positive. Recently had a procedure done and the environment was relaxed, pleasant, and professional. This helps ease some of the stress and edginess that comes with most medical procedures. Thank you S&J.
