Nerve damage or injury can occur as a result of physical trauma or from numerous medical conditions, disorders, and dysfunctions. Common causes of nerve damage, also known as neuropathy, include metabolic disorders such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, vitamin deficiencies, toxins and alcoholism, and infectious diseases.
Also, physical trauma from an injury, herniated disks, or compression and surgery can also cause nerve damage. The symptoms for nerve injuries include pain and discomfort, among other impairing symptoms but, studies show that the food we consume can play an important role in treating neuropathic pain.
