Our nervous system is a fascinating part of our body. Instantaneously messages can be sent from one part of the body to another and when it works well it is a thing of wonder. Of course we take this for granted when it works well. It is only when there is a problem that we notice.
Nervous system pain can cause symptoms like tingling, burning, weakness and numbness. The key to treating nerve problems is to find out the cause. In many cases there is some form of compression to the nerves. Your family doctor can help with an overall evaluation but sometimes a neurologist is necessary who can do detailed tests.
