The stabbing, burning, and tingling of peripheral neuropathy can be tough to ignore, but our medical clinic offers safe and effective treatment solutions to combat the unpleasant sensations that accompany this condition.
The symptoms of neuropathy are widespread and may include:
- Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet that gradually spreads to the arms or legs.
- Sensations of burning or freezing.
- Sharp, throbbing or jabbing pain.
- Increased sensitivity to touch.
- Decreased coordination.
- Muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.
- Decreased tolerance to heat and changes in sweating.
- Digestive or bladder problems.
- Lightheadedness or dizziness caused by changes in blood pressure.
Some of the most common causes of nerve damage that lead to the development of peripheral neuropathy are:
- Trauma (sports injuries, falls, car accidents, and repetitive motions)
- Autoimmune Disorders (lupus and rheumatoid arthritis)
- Vitamin Deficiencies
- Cancer treatments (chemotherapy)
- Infections (Lyme disease, shingles, hepatitis C, Epstein-Barr virus, and other viral or bacterial infections)
- Exposure to Toxic Chemicals or Heavy Metals
- Hereditary Disorders
- Tumors (malignant or benign)
- Bone Marrow Disorders
- Kidney or Liver Disease
