What Is Peripheral Neuropathy and What Treatments Are Available?

Peripheral neuropathy is a debilitating and chronic condition that can rob you of your independence and ability to lead a normal life. If left untreated, it could get to the point where you are unable to sense your feet, sleep or function normally. However, peripheral neuropathy treatments in Naples, FL are available to help you deal with or heal from this condition.

WHAT IS PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves outside the spine and brain, which are called peripheral nerves. It often causes weakness, numbness and pain to the nerves in your hands, feet and other parts of the body.

Peripheral neuropathy often presents as tingling or numbness in the hands and feet before it moves into other parts of the body. As the nerves are damaged, whether from injury, infection, metabolic problems or other causes, the patient might feel numb or incredibly sensitive to every touch. Diabetes is a leading cause of peripheral neuropathy, but there are many potential ailments that can lead to this condition, such as chemotherapy treatment, alcoholism, injury, autoimmune disorders, tumors and infections.

If the underlying cause of the peripheral neuropathy can be treated, the symptoms may go away on their own. However, if it is a chronic illness or the symptoms do not disappear, you may need to seek alternative treatments.

Peripheral neuropathy is a progressive disease, meaning that if left untreated, it can worsen over time. If you’re suffering from peripheral neuropathy—either on its own or as an offshoot of another disease—you should seek to treat any underlying conditions as well as the nerve damage itself.
