Nerve Pain Q & A

What causes nerve pain?

Nerve pain can occur when you damage a nerve, have a deformity, or continuously have excessive pressure on a nerve. Common causes of nerve pain include:

  • Heel spurs 
  • Pinched nerve 
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Trauma or sports injury 
  • Diabetic or peripheral neuropathy 
  • Tumors or cysts, including ganglion cysts

Occasionally, nerve pain is associated with serious viral infections, vitamin deficiencies, or certain prescription medications. Because nerve pain can be caused by an underlying condition that may worsen with each step you take, it’s important to have a comprehensive evaluation with a skilled podiatrist. 

When should I see a podiatrist for nerve pain?

The nerve pain specialists at The Foot Specialty Practice encourage you to come in as soon as possible if you’re experiencing any type of discomfort in your feet, ankles, or lower legs. It’s especially important to have a comprehensive podiatric examination if you’re noticing:

  • Frequent falls due to nerve discomfort
  • Difficulty bearing weight on a foot
  • Burning or electrical sensations
  • Redness or tenderness
  • Numbness or tingling

With on-site imaging available at The Foot Specialty Practice, your podiatrist can gather any essential X-ray or ultrasound images on the spot, so they can quickly diagnose you and talk with you about your treatment options. 

Can I get treatment for nerve pain?
