Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments
Peripheral neuropathy is the medical term used for damage to the nervous system, most notably, the nerves that carry information to and from the brain and the rest of the body. Patients with this condition often experience pain mainly in both their feet and hands.
Peripheral neuropathy has a number of causes, including idiopathic,(cause unknown), alcoholism, exposure to toxins, cancer-fighting medication, illnesses, and injuries. However, 30% of peripheral neuropathy cases are a direct result of diabetes. For those with diabetes, the toxic effects of high-blood sugar can cause damage to the nerves, resulting in this condition. Patients with Advanced neuropathy report a “coldness” in hands/feet along with slow wound healing.
Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy often affect the extremities—that is, the hands, arms, feet, and legs—and may include:
- Muscle weakness
- Burning sensations
- Freezing pain
- Sharp pain
- Extreme sensitivity
- Inability to walk
Many people experience other problems as a result of these symptoms. For example, some people suffer from insomnia because the pain makes it difficult to fully relax.
