Neuropathy is a large and growing issue that affects 30 million Americans. Neuropathy or Peripheral neuropathy can affect a single nerve or many nerves at once. While the cause is not always easily definable, common risk factors include:
Certain types of cancer
Infections that can lead to nerve damage
60 to 70% of those who suffer from neuropathy is caused by diabetes, making it the most common cause of neuropathy.
30 to 40% of all cancer patients have chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy.
23% of those suffering from neuropathy have an unknown cause.
Typically, symptoms are a gradual onset of numbness, prickling, and tingling in the hands or feet. It can however spread upward into the legs and arms. Many patients often describe the sensation of wearing gloves or socks when they aren’t.
Other common symptoms include:
Sharp, jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain
Extreme sensitivity to touch
Muscle weakness or paralysis
Lack of coordination which can lead to falling
If your autonomic nerves (controls and regulates your internal organs without conscious effort) are affected, signs and symptoms include:
Bowel & bladder or digestive problems
Change in blood pressure causing dizziness & light headedness
Typical medical treatments include:
Anti-seizure medications (Gabapentin & Lyrica)
However, these treatments can have side effects that accompany the use of the medication.
