10 Ways to Relieve Unexpected Nerve Pain at Home.

October 04, 2017 in Nerve Pain

Prickling, stabbing, burning, or tingling. People experience nerve pain in different ways. All people experience it as an unpleasant sensation that they want to be rid of. Nerve pain can strike when we least expect it. For this reason, it's important to have solutions for pain ready at home.

Why do you experience nerve pain?

Nerve pain is often caused by damaged nerves sending false pain signals to the brain. This gives the nerves heightened sensitivity to stimuli. The hypersensitive nerves can be set off and pained by something as simple as the touch of a fabric or the way you sleep. A few common causes of nerve pain include:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Sciatica
  • Injuries
  • Tense muscles

Home treatment and self-care for nerve pain.

There are a number of ways you can engage in healthy self-care that will manage nerve pain and help the body deal damaged nerves.

1. Vitamins.

Vitamins and minerals can help the nerves heal and reduce pain. Take these supplements for 3-12 months to see the results of the nerves healing. The following vitamins are beneficial for alleviating nerve pain and supporting better health:

  • Lipoic acid (300 mg, 2x a day)
  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine (2,000 mg a day)
  • Inositol (500-1,000 mg a day)
  • B6 Vitamins (50-100 mg a day)
  • B12 Vitamins (500-5,000 mcg a day)

2. Regular long walks.

Walking is gentle on the body but can produce many benefits. Exercise in general releases the body's natural painkillers; endorphins. Exercise like walking can also increase blood flow and circulation throughout the body. Start walking every day and work on increasing speed and distance.

3. Alcohol detox.

Alcohol worsens nerve pain. Drinking alcohol is toxic for the body's nerves. If you're dedicated to alleviating nerve pain and damage, try cutting alcohol out of your diet for a set period of time and observe your symptoms.

4. Adopt a comfortable sleep position and routine.

Sometimes we forget about the importance of our sleep cycle. As an adult you should be sleeping 7-8 hours every night. Experiment with sleeping positions.

Often people with sciatic neuropathy sleep with a pillow between their legs to ease pain. Other sleep tips include: limit caffeine, keep bedtime consistent, and don't use your bed for other activities like watching television or eating.

5. Use a TENS machine.

If you have a TENS machine handy at home, you can take it out when nerve pain strikes unexpectedly. Place the gel pads on the affected area and turn on the TENS device. The device will send waves of massage-like sensations and electric impulses that release natural painkillers in the body and override the nerve's pain signals.


6. Neuropathic massage.

Research massage therapy in your area and try to find a therapist that specializes in neuropathic pain. When done correctly, a massage along the nerve pathways can ease pain. Tense muscles can often pinch or irritate nerve pathways. Relieving tensity can also help alleviate pressure being placed on the nerves.

7. Run a hot bath.

Hot water increases blood flow in the body. If you have a bath at home, this may be one of the most relaxing, affordable, and convenient pain-relief options. Soak up pain relief while simultaneously relieving stress.

8. Eat better foods, eat less garbage foods.

The foods we put in our body account for a lot of our body's reaction to pain. Eating refined, processed, and high-sugar foods aggravates pain and encourages inflammation in the body. Eating dark green leafy vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats are some of the best ingredients for a pain-free life. Cutting out foods the body is hypersensitive to like grains, dairy, fake foods, and refined sugar, can cut out a lot of pain.

9. Lather up with oils.

Botanical oils and other essential oils have been shown to reduce the pain of postherpetic neuralgia, a form of nerve pain. Calming scents like lavender can relax the mind and body and start to relieve the intensity of symptoms.

10. Relax, de-stress, unwind.

People tend to get frustrated when we tell them that engaging in mindfulness and meditating can help with pain. Trust us, it really helps! Observing pain can take its power away. Accepting painful symptoms instead of resisting them can create instant relief. Overall, focusing on mental health can encourage better physical health.
