    Is there any way to tell the difference between nerve pain and muscle pain? I get these brief, mild throbbing pains that last 15 seconds to a minute. Just now I had one in my right forearm. Earlier it was in the side of my left thigh. Any thoughts?

    Hello. Well I am no doctor but when I describe my nerve pain its like noise and light physically hurt. its like my nerves are my skin and they bounce hostily. You should tell your doctor about ur pain though. I hope it gets better soon!

    is quick sharp pain, stabbing. Muscle pain is more constant and aches.
