Our Members Asked:
Do any supplements, like Nervive, help with nerve pain, like sciatica or diabetic neuropathy?
Several supplements may have limited benefit in reducing nerve pain caused by conditions such as sciatica or diabetic neuropathy, but the evidence remains weak. These include fish oil, curcumin, alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and GLA, vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin E, benfotiamine and Ginkgo biloba.
Be aware that deficiencies in certain vitamins can cause nerve pain and/or weakness even in people without conditions such as sciatica or diabetes. Having low blood levels of vitamins B-6 or B-12, for example, may cause nerve pain, tingling or weakness -- although getting too much vitamin B-6 can also cause these symptoms.
