Bailey Health & Wellness Center at Renner Chiropractic :: Neuropathy
Peripheral Neuropathy can be a devastating disorder affecting all facets of life.
College Station and Bryan residents should know that numbness and pain commonly begin in the feet, but may include the legs, hands and arms. In many patients, the pain is worse at night or after exercise.
Peripheral Neuropathy is not a single disease, but rather is the result of conditions such as traumatic injuries, lumbar disc herniations, metabolic disorders (commonly diabetes), use of certain drugs, nutritional deficiencies, and exposure to toxins.
Regardless of the cause of the Peripheral Neuropathy, the effect on the nerves is the same. Damage from the above mentioned conditions decrease the oxygen and nutrient supply to nerves. The nerves cannot function properly, and begin to cry out, causing burning, numbness, shooting pain, weakness, and other troubling symptoms.
Peripheral Neuropathy typically begins in the longest nerves that reach down to your toes, which is why most sufferers will have pain in the feet and legs.
Symptoms and their severity between patients will vary, depending on which types of nerves are affected and the degree of damage. Signs and symptoms include:
- Numbness and tingling in your feet or hands, which may spread upwards into your legs and arms
- Burning pain
- Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Lack of coordination
- Loss of balance
- Muscle weakness or paralysis
