What Does Nerve Damage Feel Like?

Just because you don't realize that you have nerve damage, doesn't mean it's not there. Sometimes nerve damage may not show up immediately. This is why it is extremely important to get checked out by a doctor in the days following your accident. Ideally, you will be seen within a few hours.

After a car crash, you may develop noticeable symptoms of nerve damage that you should have your doctor examine immediately, including:

  • Tingling sensation in your extremities
  • Limbs falling asleep when compressed
  • Abnormal sensitivity and pain
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Muscle atrophy and loss of strength
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Problems holding or releasing urine and stool
  • Paralysis

Experiencing These Symptoms? Seek Medical Help Immediately

A doctor should run tests to uncover the extent of your nerve damage and provide you with treatment options. The diagnosis process will include a review of your medical history to see if there are any other explanations for your chronic pain or numbness.

The doctor might also want to conduct tests that involve:

  • Closely examining your skin for reactions and sensitivity
  • Measuring your pulse at several different body locations
  • Checking your reflexes, possibly with a tuning fork
  • Ordering diagnostic tests like nerve and skin biopsies

Time, surgery, and physical therapy may help correct the damage that has been done. For many victims of car accidents that suffer from nerve damage, doctors are able to provide them with pain medication so that they can live a more comfortable life in the meantime.

When nerve damage is severe, such as in some cases of paralysis, a full recovery may not be possible. If this is the case, your treatment will focus on managing your symptoms.

How Often Do Car Accidents Cause Nerve Damage?

It’s more common than you may think. Even low-speed collisions can cause it.

Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries. This type of nerve damage affects the nerves in the neck, shoulder, and upper back. Most often, rear-end collisions cause whiplash.

Pinched Nerves

Another common type of nerve injury is a pinched nerve, which can happen due to a sudden blunt force trauma compressing a body part around a nerve. This amount of force is typical of a high-speed collision.


Neuropathy occurs when a nerve or bundle of nerves becomes inflamed due to irritation, which can result in sharp, chronic pain that worsens when the affected body part is used.


Radiculopathy occurs when the spinal nerve or cord is inflamed. Depending on what part of the spinal cord is afflicted, radiculopathy has the potential to be completely debilitating.
