  3.  Nerve damage after an injury.
  4. Impaired thyroid gland activity.
  5.  Chronic liver disease.

Nerve strengthening methods:

 Exercise :

It is believed that people with nerve dysfunction should not exercise, but this is not true. There are benefits to doing aerobic exercise and practicing flexibility exercises that help with movement, and increase the heart rate, which is especially needed by people with weak nerves, and exercise strengthens nerve tissues and increases blood flow, in addition to many other benefits.

 Foods that help strengthen nerves:

 One of the most important parts of treating nerve impairment is good food. It is worth noting that people with weak nerves need a diet rich in nutrients to improve nerve function, including focusing on foods that contain vitamins B1, B6, and B12, which contain omega-3 fatty acid, and eating vegetables, fruits and proteins that do not contain fat, and In general, people with nerve dysfunction are advised to eat fortified foods, including vitamin B. Deficiency of this vitamin causes a feeling of staples in the toes, or burning in the feet, especially at night, and foods that contain this vitamin include liver, beef, seafood, yeast, beans, eggs, and sunflower seeds.

Antidepressant drugs:

Treating nerve weakness:

If the treatment of nerve dysfunction is based on the cause that leads to it, then the situation may be different. For example, nerve weakness caused by diabetes is treated by controlling blood sugar levels, and even if this is the case, the treatment is:

  • Drug treatment with over-the-counter painkillers, which includes analgesics and NSAIDs.

  •  Prescription drug therapy, including some anticonvulsant drugs, and some anti-depressants.

  • Quitting smoking, considering all its forms, makes the nerves weaker and may damage the nerves.

  •  It is preferable not to over-eat stimulants, such as tea and coffee, at this stage. As it works the opposite way by increasing the pressure on the nerves.
  •  Exercising because it reduces the discomfort that the sufferer feels.
