7 Common Signs You Might Have Nerve Damage

We have billions of nerves in our bodies and most of them are like little branches which spread out all over and transmit messages back to the brain and spinal cord. If these peripheral nerves get damaged, you can experience unrelenting pain, or you could end up with serious injuries.
