For the treatment :
[Of all the diseases of the nervous system, the most common difficulty that people have is pain, and much of that is nerve-related," according to Dr. Shai Gozani, founder and CEO of NeuroMetrix, a medical device company. [There are 100 million people who live with chronic pain."
According to the Mayo Clinic, patients with nerve disorders experience functional difficulties, which result in conditions such as:
Epilepsy, in which abnormal electrical discharges from brain cells cause seizures
Parkinson's disease, which is a progressive nerve disease that affects movement
Multiple sclerosis (MS), in which the protective lining of the nerves is attacked by the body`s immune system
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a motor neuron disease which weakens the muscles and progressively hampers physical function
Huntington's disease, which is an inherited condition that cause the nerve cells in the brain to degenerate
Alzheimer's disease, which covers a wide range of disorders that impacts mental functions, particularly memory.
Mayo Clinic also noted that the nervous system can also be affected by vascular disorders such as:
Stroke, which occurs when there is bleeding on the brain or the blow flow to the brain is obstructed;
Transient ischemic attack (TIA), which are mini-type strokes that last a shorter period of time but mimic stroke symptoms; and
Subarachnoid hemorrhage, which is specifically bleeding in the space between your brain and the surrounding membrane that can be the result of a trauma or rupturing of a weak blood vessel;
Infections such as meningitis, encephalitis, polio, and epidural abscess can also affect the nervous system, the NIH noted.
Treatments vary from anti inflammatory medications and pain medications such as opiates , to implanted nerve stimulators and wearable devices, Gozani said. [Many people also turn to herbal and holistic methods to reduce pain, such as acupuncture."
