Home Remedies for Nerve Pain

Nerve pain hits millions of adults every year. Moreover, it is not just shooting pain. Sometimes it feels like an electric shock. Alternatively, like being jabbed with pins and needles. Alternatively, burning pain.

However, sometimes it is not even “pain” so much as numbness and weakness. On the other hand, an in the middle annoying, tingling, “my foot just woke up” feeling. Fortunately, there are some simple and natural things you can do yourself right at home to help ease or even completely stop these symptoms of nerve pain.

First, find out what’s causing your nerve pain and work to cure the cause. If you have diabetes then you have to work on lowering your blood sugar levels and perhaps if you are newly diagnosed as being diabetic then perhaps you can turn it around and get things back to normal with exercise, diet, and great herbs. In addition, excessive alcohol used can start the process of nerve pain and thus cut back or stop the use of alcohol can stop the cycle. Singles can cause nerve pain and are directly associated with stress… learn to relax, meditate and take time for yourself. Hormones problems can also lead to nerve pain, make sure to have your thyroid levels checked, your thyroid could be the culprit. Even being depressed can start the cycle of stress that leads to nerve pain.

Symptoms of Nerve Pain

·       Lower back pain
·       Pain in the legs or ears turns severe while sitting down
·       Numbness in the foot, weakness, and difficulty with movement
·       Pain in the rear more pronounced on one side
Hot compress and Cold Compress


·      Take two handfuls of wheat or rice bran. Heat it in a pan (keep stirring until hot). Tie up the heated bran in a piece of soft cloth. Apply this homemade heat pack on the affected area. Repeat the process for as long as required.

·      Take a handful of ice cubes. Tie up the ice-cubes in a polythene bag. Apply the cold compress on the affected area. Apply hot and cold packs alternatively.


If you have never tried acupressure, you should try it. It is completely safe to perform on yourself and others and can often bring fast pain relief. Acupressure offers many benefits including:
  Direct finger pressure and elongated hand massage during acupressure stimulate the brain to release its “feel good” endorphins.  This, in turn, reduces your sensitivity to the pain and burning symptoms while normalizing your nervous system.

·   Add a massaging motion to the painful area to help remove excess lymph and inflammation, improve blood circulation and reduce the pressure that is irritating your nerves.

Stretching / Range of Motion

Tight muscles are frequent contributors to nerve pain. Sometimes they pinch the nerve directly, such as when the sciatic nerve gets pinched while traveling through your piriformis muscle.

Stretching these, overly tight muscles increase their length while loosening their stranglehold on your nerves, often resulting in immediate pain relief. Stretching can also improve the effective range of motion in your joints.

Gentle but correct whole body stretching is best for reducing stiffness, improving blood flow and increasing range of motion over the entire body. However, for quick relief from nerve pain, simply stretching the affected area may be all that is needed.


·       Take one or two teaspoons of organic Turmeric Powder.
·     Heat a glass of cow’s milk in a small bowl. Add the Turmeric Powder and mix well.
·      Drink the mixture while it is hot. Repeat the process twice daily for a week or so.


·   Take 2 to 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil. Heat it gently and add some camphor.

·       Apply the camphor oil on the painful areas. Massage the areas gently with a rotating motion.

·       Repeat process until the pain subsides.

How does this work?

Massaging to relieve pain has been in practice from time immemorial, and it gives instant relief from severe pain caused by nerve pain or sciatica. While there are professionals who are experienced in giving massages, it can also be done by inexperienced people.

Massaging helps get relief from pain as it inhibits the production of the stress hormone known as cortisol and enhances the production of serotonin that elevates the mood. Massaging also helps control the production of the P Substance, which is a neurotransmitter that indicates the sense of pain. Massage is a natural treatment particularly for nerve pain in legs.
