@SkyWhisperer - That’s good to hear that you found some help. What’s fascinating to me from the article is to discover that spinal nerves do more than manage nervous information transmitted from the spine.
They basically deliver all sorts of information from the body to the brain, regardless of where the external stimulus may exist.
I imagine that anyone who had suffered any sort of severe spinal nerve damage would be in a world of hurt. Imagine touching a hot stove and not feeling the sensation of pain because your nervous system didn’t function properly, or not being able to tell the difference between smooth and rough surfaces which could potentially scratch you in some way.
I think it’s worth it to take care of any nerve pain, regardless of where it originates, before it becomes something worse.
