Nerve pain seems to be a pretty common symptom. I am not sure if I have ever had it, though.
Can someone who suffers from it describe what it feels like? I assume it is usually a symptom of Bart?

There's different 'types' of nerve pain.

What I've experienced:

- a sharp shooting pain

- a burning, searing pain

The burning, searing pain is what I usually experience in my thoracic back, left arm, and hand. Not much helps to relieve it.

I would take joint pain or muscle pain over the nerve pain in a heartbeat.
Not only is the pain intense...it's worrisome knowing it's the nerves and they are generally more difficult to heal.

burning, shooting, stabbing, can just come out of no where.
