Nerve compression symptoms do not necessarily begin with pain. The degenerative changes in the spine sometimes produce only mild nerve root
irritation. Apart from pain medicines, taking methylcobalamin
supplements will help in reducing nerve related symptoms. Taking local steroid injections
also retards the progress of disease. Surgery is the last option.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
