Unexplained Nerve Pain

Overview

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.

Treatment Options

  • Dorsal root ganglion therapy (DRG)
  • Spinal cord stimulation (SCS)
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS)
  • Epidural steroid injection (ESI)
  • Facet joint injections
  • Lumbar epidural steroid injections(LESI)
  • Transforaminal epidural steroid injections (Transforaminal ESI)
  • Radiofrequency ablation (neuorotomy) (RFA)
