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.
