Do you suffer from pain, weakness, tingling, numbness or burning sensations in your arms, legs, fingers or toes?
If so, you may have Peripheral Neuropathy…
What is Peripheral Neuropathy? This common disorder stems from damage to the peripheral nerves, especially those that branch out through the arms, legs, fingers and toes.
What are the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy? Symptoms include weakness, numbness, tingling, burning or painful sensations, loss of balance.
What are the causes of Peripheral Neuropathy? Diabetes is a frequent cause, but peripheral neuropathy can also be due to toxic trauma (such as from chemotherapy) or mechanical injury, as with carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be caused by putting pressure on nerves, such as the prolonged use of crutches, or even by sitting in the same position for too long. Disorders such as atherosclerosis, autoimmunity, advanced kidney disease and hypothyroidism may also be to blame, as well as certain drugs or environmental toxins.
