Nerve Pain Q & A
"Nerves can cause pain in two ways. Sometimes the nerves that carry pain signals fire too loudly or too often. The nerve system itself is not the problem; something else is triggering the alarm. The other kind of nerve pain occurs because the nerves themselves are injured or malfunctioning. It is not always clear why this happens, but aggressively controlling the pain, regardless of its genesis, offers the best chance of preventing an acute injury from becoming chronic pain."
— Dr. Scott Fishman
