Nerve Pain

Why do you need nerve cells?

Organisms need nerve cells to respond to the environment. Plants respond to the environment through reactions to and the production of chemicals. Animals often have to react more quickly to the environment to avoid danger, capture food, secure a mate etc.

Nerve cells in humans allow us to think (the brain), see, avoid pain and danger. There is a rare disorder where people do not feel pain. This is very dangerous as the can break a limb or bleed without knowing they are injured.

Can neuropathy affect your back face and head?

I do not know how your doctors are, but our doctors in IRAN do their best for evaluation of the patient. neuropathy usually afflicts abdomen and back lastly and usually if afect foot and hands

you must do EMG and NCV to study what kind of neuropathy you have.

Yes it certainly can. Many ignorant doctors try and avoid the difficult work with testing and researching the cause. I suggest to get a thorough neurological examination and all thorough testings done to rule out any diseases. You must try and investigate your problem and not rely on your doctor to do everything as most doctors are ignorant as hell and don't care of your suffering. Doctors just want to use patients as pill dispensers for profit rather than taking the time to find the problem. Doctors can kill patients and get away with it without impunity.

If you are worried about your health ask your Doctor to send you for assessment by a Neurologist.

Nerve Pain

What is neuropathy?

NeuropathyNeuropathy is usually short for peripheral neuropathy, meaning a disease of the peripheral nervous system. Strictly speaking, however, neuropathy is any disease that affects any part of the nervous system.

Neuropathy often results in numbness, abnormal sensations called dysesthesias and allodynias that occur either spontaneously or in reaction to external stimuli, and a characteristic form of pain, called neuropathic pain or neuralgia, that is qualitatively different from the ordinary nociceptive pain one might experience from stubbing a toe or hitting a finger with a hammer.

Neuropathic pain is usually perceived as a steady burning and/or "pins and needles" and/or "electric shock" sensations. The difference is due to the fact that "ordinary" pain stimulates only pain nerves, while a neuropathy often results in the firing of both pain and non-pain (touch, warm, cool) sensory nerves in the same area, producing signals that the spinal cord and brain do not normally expect to receive.1


Common causes of neuropathy include diabetic peripheral neuropathy, alcoholic neuropathy, and various polyneuropathies.

Why do you feel pain?

Your body makes you feel pain to alert you that something is wrong by sending a message to your brain. FOR EXAMPLE: You put your hand in a fire and the cells send a message to your brain saying "Hey Stupid! Get your hand out of the fire! It'll burn you very very badly!" Your brain gets the message and then makes your hand move out of the fire and then you go run it under cold water.

NOTE: If you put ice on a burn, even for a short amount of time, you could get frostbite.

What is autonomic neuropathy?

Not knowing your science background, I will define autonomic neuopathy in a terse and cogent manner: this entity is damage to the nerves that regulate the body functions that you can not control, including nerves that regulate the heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, and digestion. Autonomic neuropathy results in faulty commmunication between your brain and the parts of the body that your autonomic nervous system serves.

Nerve Pain

Where does neuropathy come from?

Despite the fact that this is posted in the dermatorlogy section and that the sensation (burning pain, heaviness, cold, pins/needles, etc) can be felt in the skin, this is not a skin problem. Neuropathy is a nerve issue, generally the peripheral nerves such as those that lead to the arms, wrists or hands/legs, shins or feet. The causes are numerous and can include diabetes (very common) arthritis, injury, contraindications (bad reactions) to medication, vitamin deficiency or excess, or even heavy metal poisoning. This is not something to treat over the internet, and should be addressed by a board certified neurologist or pain management specialist. Neuropathy can often be treated by mediations containing anti-convulsants (anti-seizure medication) to slow down the excitable neurons. There are also many physical therapy techniques that can reduce the annoying and/or painful symptoms. Take away message: neuropathy is not a normal part of aging and is something that should be examined by a doctor and treated as soon as possible. Its course can often be reversed, but can become permanent if not addressed.

Nerve Pain

Does diabetic neuropathy affect the entire body?

No. It typically starts in the feet, then moves up the legs. At about the time it reaches the knees, it starts in the hands.

The progression of this disease can usually be prevented by keeping your blood sugar under control.

Neuropathy CAN affect the entire body:

Neuropathy is caused by damage to the peripheral nerves that link the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) to the rest of the body. The condition can trigger pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness in any part of the body.

Nerve Pain

Which nerve lies deep to the sciatic nerve in the gluteal region?

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body, originating from the lumbosacral plexus (L4-5 and S1-3) and providing sensory and motor innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve exits the pelvis via the greater sciatic foramen below the piriformis muscle. In the gluteal region, the sciatic nerve courses between muscle layers. The nerve is deep (anterior) to the gluteus maximus muscle and is superficial (posterior) to the inner muscle layers (superior and inferior gemellus muscles, obturator internus muscle, quadratus femoris muscle).

It courses down the midline of the posterior thigh and branches into the tibial and common peroneal nerves usually in the popliteal fossa. Sciatic nerve block is most commonly performed for foot or ankle surgery

I don't believe there is a cure. Damaged nerves. from any cause, either heal themselves or your body learns how to function around them.

Botany or Plant Biology
Nerve Pain

Do plants feel pain?

Plants can not feel pain

Plants can react to stimuli, but they have no central nervous system, so they cannot feel pain.

Studies have been done on plants by reputable sources e.g. The Smithsonian, but they have merely showed plants reacting to sunlight, drugs, and various stimuli.

There are no peer-reviewed studies showing that plants are conscious in any way or that they can feel pain. No credible scientific groups have published papers to this effect.

Unlike almost every animal, plants are not sentient.

Many people say that plants feel pain as an excuse to continue eating animals. However, more plants are killed to satisfy a carnist diet than a vegan diet, so even if it were true that plants can feel pain, the argument still makes no sense.
