Get Help for Your Neuropathy from a Broomfield Neurological Chiropractor Today
There are several classifications of neuropathy and the most commonly diagnosed is peripheral neuropathy. Multiple causes can bring about this condition including diabetes, hereditary disorders, auto-immune diseases, infections, and side effects to medications. Neuropathy of the arms, legs, hands, and feet can also be brought on by protein abnormalities, reaction to toxins, poor nutrition, alcoholism, blood and circulatory disorders, kidney failure, and prolonged chronic health conditions such as cancer or lupus. In some cases, despite all the best testing and investigation, the causes of peripheral neuropathy remain unknown, a condition that is called idiopathic neuropathy.
Symptoms from peripheral neuropathy can be varied and will largely depend on the area of the nervosa system that is most affected.
These nerves control the movement of your body and relay messages from the brain to all the parts of your body that can move. When these nerves are affected by neuropathy, you may experience symptoms including:
- muscle weakness or shrinking of muscles
- difficulty with movement and control of arms and legs
- muscle spasms, tremors and uncontrollable twitching
- decreased reflexes, slow response time and stiff muscles
- losing control of muscles, dropping things, loosing dexterity
Sensory nerves send messages from the brain to parts of the body that link to our five senses and helps keep us safe and helps us avoid pain and injury. If the sensory nerves are affected, you may experience:
- tingling or numbness in hands and feet or arms and legs
- sensitivity to touch, constant pain, and intense tingling
- decreased sensation, numbness, weakness, and loss of sensation
- inability to sense temperature, pain, or touch of any kind
- increased injury due to inability to feel pain as a warning
These nerves control all the functions of the body that happen with little to no thought on our part like, heart beats, breathing, bladder control, and so forth. If these nerves are affected from peripheral neuropathy, symptoms include:
- nausea, bloating, vomiting, indigestion, digestion issues
- Dizziness upon standing, bending, or moving too quickly
- excessive sweating and poor internal temperature control
- inability to control bowel and bladder functions
- problems with breathing and heart rate
