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.
