Nerve Weakness

Nerve weakness is the result of a damaged or destroyed nerve cell or neuron. The associated pain is often described to be stabbing, pricking, stinging, burning, and tingling in nature. It is referred to as neuropathic pain. Diabetes, multiple sclerosis, pancreatic cancer, trauma, shingles, vitamin B deficiency, spinal arthritis, etc., are some causes. A healthy nervous system can be achieved by eating a healthy diet rich in calcium, potassium, and vitamin B12. Exercise, yoga, and stretching can strengthen the nervous system.
