Have a Pinched Nerve? Know What You Can Do!

Our body is composed of many elements that carry out emotional and physical functions that are usually in sync with one another. It is important for these organs and other elements to be in sync for good health. All nerves are connected to the brain and are responsible for sending important signals throughout your body. Therefore, even one pressed nerve may send you warning signals such as pain to the body. It is advisable not to overlook these signals. Damage from a pressed nerve might be minor or extreme. It might bring about persistent and chronic issues. Therefore, the sooner you get a treatment for nerve compression, the more relieving experience you will have. In a few cases, you cannot reverse the damage caused by a pressed nerve. However, treatment does relieve you from the pain in most cases.

Nerves are the most vulnerable at spots in your body where they go through narrow spaces and have very less tissue to protect them. These are the places they are more likely to get pinched. A number of the causes may include:

  1. If the nerve is pressed between tissues, for example, your tendon, ligament or bone.
  2. Nerve compression in your neck or arm may likewise bring pain in zones, for example, your elbow, hand, wrist or fingers.
  3. Aggravation or weight on a nerve root leaving the spine may bring about neck or low back pain.
  4. In case a disc tears, it is known as a herniated circle that can put weight on a spinal nerve.

Some of the common symptoms of pinched nerves are:

  1. Pain in the region of pressure, for example, the neck or low back
  2. Transmitting pain, for example, sciatica or radicular pain
  3. Numbness
  4. Tingling
  5. Blazing sensation
  6. Weakness

To what extent you are affected depends from individual to individual. Treatment fluctuates, based upon the seriousness and reason for the pinched nerve. You may find that you benefit from just resting the affected area and by maintaining distance from any exercises that may cause you harm. If side effects endure or torment is serious, it is best to see your specialist. You may require one or more types of treatment to contract swollen tissue around the nerve.

Treatment may include:

  1. NSAIDs - Non steroidal inflammation mitigating drugs (NSAIDs, for example, headache medicine, ibuprofen, or naproxen may diminish swelling).
  2. Oral corticosteroids - These are utilized to lessen swelling and agony.
  3. Opiates - These are utilized for brief periods to lessen extreme pain.
  4. Steroid infusions - These infusions may diminish swelling and allow the affected nerves to recover.
  5. Exercise based recuperation - This will extend and reinforce muscles.
  6. Brace - A prop or delicate neckline limits movement and permits muscles to rest for brief periods.
  7. Interventional Pain Procedures: They are the most cost effective and non invasive methods for pain relief as recommended by the WHO. Your pain will be taken care of by the interventional pain physician or the pain specialist.
  8. Surgery - Surgery might be required for more serious issues that do not react to different sorts of treatment.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The best way to avoid migraine is to avoid the precipitating factor for it which can be different for everyone so try to find out what triggers your problem stay in a calm and quite place avoid very harsh light and sound if required take a pain killer meditation can also help you a lot.

I have been feeling my body shaking/unsteady while I am sitting on chair or standing or walking constantly. But feel relaxed if I sit on floor leaning against something or lying in a cool place. It increases in heat atmospher and in empty stomach or any stress.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. These may be some kind of tremors or dystonia, the best way is to consult a neurophysician, maybe get some relevant investigations done and then management can proceed from there on. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I have a migraine pain over 3 years. I m taking some medicine as prescribed by doctor, but it not much helpful. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: Take Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.
