FAQs About Nerve Pain – Part Two

In Part Two, we cover more FAQs regarding nerve pain and your overall health. To recap, the nerves are responsible for carrying signals between your brain and body. When your nerves are damaged due to injury or disease, they can misfire, causing your brain to think you’re feeling pain when you’re really not. Some of the most common causes of neuropathy are injuries to the nerves, diseases like diabetes, autoimmune conditions and metabolic syndromes. 

In most cases, neuropathy cannot be cured. However, there are a number of treatments out there to help you manage your nerve pain and improve your quality of life. Neuro Health is one of them. We offer supplements and topical creams to relieve nerve pain and inflammation. They are safe and made from natural ingredients that are well-tolerated. Let’s cover some more frequently asked questions about neuropathy so that you can empower yourself with the right information! 

What makes nerve pain worse? 

Emotional stress and anxiety can amplify nerve pain, as can physical stress and exertion. Fortunately, these are in your control, and there are things you can do to alleviate them. However, there are other factors that can make your pain worse that you can’t control, such as the temperature outside and fluctuating hormones. 

What can calm down nerve pain? 

A variety of over-the-counter treatments are available for calming down nerve pain, such as topical painkillers, NSAIDs, supplements and vitamins. People also have success in the following non-prescription treatments: 

  • Acupuncture
  • Physical therapy 
  • Massage therapy 
  • Biofeedback
  • Hypnosis 
  • Relaxation techniques 
  • Talk therapy 

It’s also important to eat a healthy diet, get sufficient sleep at night and avoid smoking. Managing your stress levels is also helpful. The goal is to keep your nerves as healthy as possible. 

What are the best foods for nerve pain?

Foods with a low glycemic index are ideal when living with neuropathy. They release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, regulating blood sugar levels. Some of the best foods to eat include whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, lean meats, eggs and fortified cereals. 

Which foods should I avoid when I have neuropathy? 

Be wary of processed foods, added sugars, dairy products, gluten and alcohol consumption. These foods increase inflammation in the body, which can exacerbate neuropathy symptoms. 

Is there a difference between nerve pain and neuropathy? 

Neuropathy is a general term used for any type of damage or dysfunction to the nervous system. Nerve pain refers specifically to pain felt from the nerves misfiring. They essentially mean the same thing, though, and can be used interchangeably. 

How long do damaged nerves take to heal? 

Regeneration time can take a while and depends on how badly your nerve was injured. Bruised nerves, for instance, can take 12 weeks to heal. However, keep in mind that while some damaged nerves can heal, some cannot. In the case of peripheral neuropathy, it is most likely to be permanent. 

What does it feel like when the nerves are healing? 

When your nerves are recovering, the sensations they put out are often unpleasant. They may be accompanied by electric shock sensations or tingling. Recovery can be slow, so it’s important to keep moving to increase blood flow and strengthen the muscles. 

What is the best home remedy for foot neuropathy? 

Living with foot neuropathy is not easy as the pain, burning and tingling can make it difficult to walk, rest and stay active. Fortunately, a number of home treatments can alleviate this pain: 

  • Wear neuropathy socks 
  • Check your feet daily for wounds or infections
  • Get a good night’s rest 
  • Limit your alcohol intake 
  • Exercise — even gentle stretches can be beneficial! 
  • Massage your feet using essential oils  
  • Apply topical creams 
  • Manage diabetes and blood sugar levels 

What is the best natural remedy for peripheral neuropathy? 

The best way to treat peripheral neuropathy depends on the underlying cause. If it’s diabetes, you’ll want to manage blood sugar levels and take your medications on time. If it’s due to alcohol use, you’ll want to quit drinking and possibly take thiamine, as your body is likely to be deficient in it. Other natural remedies include: 

  • Anti-inflammatory herbs (cayenne pepper, tarragon, turmeric)
  • Vitamins and minerals 
  • Essential oils 
  • Quitting smoking 
  • Warm baths 
  • Regular exercise 
  • Medication 
  • Acupuncture 

What’s the best cream for neuropathy in the feet? 

The best topical creams for neuropathy in the feet typically contain capsaicin, the substance that makes chili peppers hot. It’s believed to stop the nerves from sending pain messages to the brain. However, capsaicin creams have mixed results, so if it’s not working for you, there are better options out there! 

Neuro Health has a cream for neuropathy in the feet that contains vitamin B12, alpha lipoic acid, benfotiamine, folate and several other vitamins. These ingredients are safe, effective and well-tolerated by most individuals. There’s even a money back guarantee! 

Can nerve pain cause swelling? 

It is possible for damaged nerves to cause swelling. One way it can do this is by causing an inflammatory response where the cells release inflammatory mediators. Also, if your nerve is compressed for a long time, it can cause the protective barrier around it to break down, allowing fluid to leak into the nerve. This can cause swelling and inflammation. 

Is it normal to feel nauseous with neuropathy? 

When we experience chronic and debilitating pain, it causes the millions of nerve cells in the autonomic nervous system to enter self-protection mode. This causes the body to release stress hormones, activate other neurotransmitters and disrupt communication between your brain and gut, leaving your body with a nauseous feeling.
