Let’s Discuss Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a very serious condition that has the potential to take independence away from its suffers, causing pain and discomfort that can ruin any chance of a normal life. Ability to sense your feet, ability to walk and ability to sleep may be reduced in addition to the enjoyment of life. Let’s dive in and explore neuropathy in more detail.

Peripheral neuropathy comes about from damage to your peripheral nerves, which are responsible for sending signals between your brain (via the spinal cord) and the rest of your body such as your hands, feet, and organs. Damage to your peripheral nerves can come from diabetes, chemotherapy, side effects of medications, nutritional or vitamin deficiencies, injury, infections, or even exposure to toxins.

Your nerves may become damaged, forcing them to send erroneous signals to your brain. You may experience numbness, unending jabbing sensations, and extreme sensitivity with every touch. Neuropathic symptoms vary from person to person, so some may feel only numbness in their body whereas others may experience excruciating pain. No matter the severity, it is a progressive condition, meaning your neuropathy can get worse if left unmanaged. There is no single cure to eradicate neuropathy, but a doctor with specific training in diagnosing and treating peripheral neuropathy can help you relieve pain, minimize the symptoms, and also recommend lifestyle changes that can help you live with your neuropathy better.
