Nerve pain can be excruciating and debilitating – interrupting your usual activities of daily living and psychologically challenging to you. Sadly, nerve pain is typically worse at night when you are trying to sleep, denying you an essential, refreshing sleep.
There are a number of conditions that can cause nerve pain: diabetes, shingles and cancer. The appropriate treatment for these underlying illnesses is important to relieve your pain. Additionally, our medical team at Tristate Multi-Specialty Medical Services PC is here to offer relief through nerve blocks to ease your pain and stop the progression of nerve damage.
Nerve damage can act in several ways. Some nerve damage may send false signals which cause sharp pain and other types of nerve damage result in numbness or no feeling at all, leaving you vulnerable to injury because you cannot feel sensation. This numbness can also cause the performance of certain activities to be challenging. For example, numb fingertips make it hard to type or tie your shoes. Some nerve pain causes muscle weakness and balance problems, both conditions making you prone to additional injuries. Left untreated, nerve problems may get worse as the damage progresses along the nerve.
There are ways to control nerve pain and the doctors at Tristate Multi-Specialty Medical Services PC are skilled at performing a range of nerve blocks to treat this condition. Our medical team will take a medical history and assessment of your pain. Based upon their findings, they will give you a clear diagnosis and treatment plan.
We share your goal of a return to an active and healthy lifestyle minus the burden of this pain.
