As a person experiencing pain, you have the right to have your condition taken seriously. Nerve pain is a medical condition that affects more than four million Americans. It is often under-diagnosed and many people go on living their lives in pain.
When not properly managed, pain can seem to take over your life. People often have problems concentrating during the day and sleeping at night. Even simple acts, like walking or putting on socks, are agonizing. People with nerve pain may become reclusive and isolated from other people.
