Nerve Back Pain: Eat Vitamin B12
People who are vitamin B12–deficient usually have neuropathy or sciatica. Your body doesn't naturally make B12 so it's important to incorporate it into your diet in general, but especially if you have nerve back pain. Dr. Shosany recommends including foods like meat, fish, and dairy into your daily diet in order to increase your vitamin intake.
