Neuropathy is a medical condition caused by damaged nerve cells and often associated with autoimmune diseases, infections, diabetes, tumors, or hereditary conditions.
Peripheral neuropathy typically is nerve damage starting in your hands and feet, but other parts of your body can be affected too. Peripheral neuropathy currently affects over 20 million people in the United States with symptoms ranging from tingling or burning pain and nausea to muscle spasms, difficulty moving your arms or legs, or atrophy.
Loss of balance and injuries related to poor balance are a serious concern. Losing your foot sensation can result in hip fractures, broken arms and concussions. You will have to give up driving a vehicle if you can’t “feel” your feet!
You will know you have peripheral neuropathy if you experience:
- Burning pain
- Stabbing pain
- Shooting pain
- Throbbing pain
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Balance problems
