Barrow Pain Expert Dr. Muley Gives Tips for Patients
When patients arrive in the doctor’s office with nerve pain, they don’t always know that’s what it is. But their symptoms often stand out.
“Things that are typical for nerve pain is that it tends to be sharp, electric-like, shooting pain with a pins-and-needles sensation or tingling,” says Dr. Suraj Muley, a neurologist and director of the neuromuscular division at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.
Clinicians say patients may also describe or experience:
— Ice-cold sensation.
— Sensitivity to touch.
“Also, nerve pain tends to be worse at night,” Muley adds in an interview with U.S. News.
