What causes pain in the radial nerve?

I think my radial nerve is causing me pain. I saw a neurologist an he told me that my nerve is slowing down. The doctor was one of those that don t really explain things to you. He was not explicit about it. So I m wondering what I should expect about this, or if there s anything that I can do. Other than taking pain medication. Thank you

Hello,

It might be due to neuropathic arising from nerve compression.

Consult an orthopedician and plan for an MRI scan.

You might require drugs like Gabapentin for symptomatic relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
