About Nerve Pain
Nerve or neuropathic pain is a chronic condition that causes discomfort that is not prompted by any one event or injury. For example, if you were to stub your toe, your nervous system would send signals to register the pain you are experiencing. However, with chronic neuropathic disorder, your nervous system is constantly sending pain signals throughout your body, despite no injury. Studies have shown that this condition affects one in five Americans, causing debilitating discomfort. Our skilled physicians at Tricity Pain Associates in Texas are excited to offer state-of-the-art pain management care to men and women who are experiencing nerve pain. Our team is highly trained and experienced in treating neuropathic pain, including more specific nerve pain, such as occipital neuralgia and trigeminal neuralgia.

"I would recommend. I suffer with chronic lower back pain and nerve pain in my legs due to degenerative diseases of my lumbar spine and a lumbar fusion surgery that did not alleviate my pain.

Causes of Nerve Pain
Nerve pain isn't the result of any one factor but is usually accompanied by an injury, infection, surgery, or certain medical conditions and diseases. It's possible to have lasting nerve damage after a surgery or injury, even after your initial incision or trauma has healed. This can result in chronic nerve pain. Other conditions, like a herniated disc, spinal cord compression, diabetes, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and abnormal pressure on the nerves, can cause neuropathic pain. Contributing factors may also include carpal tunnel syndrome, thyroid issues, facial nerve problems, arthritis, and Vitamin B deficiency.
At Tricity Pain Associates, our first step in treating nerve pain is to identify the underlying cause of your discomfort. This is achieved by performing a thorough consultation to review your specific symptoms and discuss your medical history. We may also perform a series of diagnostic tests (including pain mapping) to properly evaluate your condition and pinpoint the specific location of your discomfort. Once we have determined the source of your pain, we can review all of your treatment options. We offer a variety of solutions, including steroid injections and nerve blocks, but can provide recommendations on other therapies as well.
