The networks of nerves which lead from your brain and spine are important in ensuring your brain can send signals to the rest of your body parts. When a nerve becomes compressed or pinched, the normal function of those signals is interrupted. Your brain will then send a signal through the network of nerves, alerting you that there is a problem.
The most common way in which a warning is received is through pain. However, the level of pain experienced is not always indicative of the severity of the damage being done to the nerve. A compressed nerve can result in varying degrees of damage, or no long-lasting damage at all. There is little distinction regarding how much pain or discomfort sufferers will initially experience, so it is essential to seek treatment as soon as you begin receiving pain signals from suspected nerve compression.
