Need Pain Refleif from Peripheral Neuropathy?
Suffering from peripheral neuropathy, can be one of the most debilitating medical conditions for seniors.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy results from damage to the peripheral system, the communications network that is responsible for connecting limbs and organs to the central nervous system. Peripheral neuropathy is the most common complication of diabetes. Chronically high blood sugar levels damage nerves in the extremities and other parts of the body, as well as weaken the walls of blood vessels that supply nerves with oxygen and nutrients. While peripheral neuropathy is commonly associated with diabetes, it can also be caused by autoimmune disorders, infections, tumors, nutritional imbalances, and can even be hereditary.
Here are just a few of the many symptoms that neuropathy can cause:
- Foot and ankle pain
- Numbness and tingling
- Headaches and migraines
- Burning or stabbing pain
- Sleepless nights
- Stiff neck muscles
- Other adverse symptoms in the feet and hands
Overtime, as nerves in the feet continue die off, even worse symptoms can appear, including:
- Difficulty getting around
- Balance problems
- Frequent falls
- Sciatica pain
- Sleepless nights
Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
While keeping your blood sugar levels within your target range can keep diabetic neuropathy from getting worse, there aren’t treatments that can reverse nerve disease. However, rather than mask the pain and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy with harmful medications, we look at nerve damage holistically to treat the source of the problem in order to improve overall health.
