How can I treat nerve pain at home?
Nerve pain is unfortunately common, but it can be managed appropriately. The right treatment for nerve pain will vary somewhat depending on the underlying condition, but there are definitely ways for you to alleviate your discomfort. One of the most important methods is to exercise regularly and carefully. Exercise improves blood flow, bringing the oxygen and nutrients your feet need to your lower limbs and painful nervous tissue. Walking and yoga are two safe exercise options. In a few cases, warm foot soaks may help encourage circulation and relieve discomfort as well. Massages work a similar way. Most likely you’ll need to make some changes to your health and lifestyle. If you have diabetes, you’ll need to take steps to keep your blood sugar under control. If you drink alcohol or smoke, start working on ways to quit, since they contribute to nerve damage. There are a few other treatments available, including medications, but exactly what will help you will depend on your unique situation. Let our team at Absolute Foot Care Specialists in Las Vegas treat you. Make an appointment online, or call (702) 839-2010 for more information.
Why might my toes hurt, burn, or tingle?
Toes hurt, burn, and tingle for several reasons, but if it’s just one or two of your little digits, the problem is probably the result of a Morton’s neuroma. This is an irritated, swollen, thickened nerve in between two metatarsal heads in the ball of your foot. Pressure and pinching on this nerve causes it to thicken and misfire—creating that burning and tingling sensation in your toes. You might also develop numbness that radiates into your digits. Like any other nerve damage, this does have the potential to become an increasingly painful and possibly permanent problem unless it’s treated early. Nerves are sensitive and unless you remove the excess pressure and decompress them, they might not fully heal. Conservative care early on, though, can be very successful for alleviating the problem.
