Effectively Treating Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy occurs when the nerves of the hands and feet are damaged, with the most common nerve pain affecting the feet. More than 100 types of peripheral neuropathy have been identified, and each type has its own unique symptoms and progression. Symptoms usually begin with pain in the toes or feet, with the pain spreading up the legs over time.



Common Symptoms Include:

  • Burning pain
  • Sharp electrical pain
  • Aching
  • Cramping
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Difficulty walking
  • Loss of balance
  • Symptoms traveling up the legs over time
  • Pain is worse at night

The most common causes of neuropathic pain are diabetes, cancer treatment, vascular diseases, auto immune responses, and alcoholism. It occurs when the nerves become damaged and no longer communicate properly with the brain. Many different types of nerves can become damaged, and different nerve types create different types of symptoms. This explains why people can have cold feet and burning pain at the same time.

Neuropathy is often progressive and can lead to complications. These complications include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of independence
  • In severe cases, amputation

Conventional neuropathic pain treatment is difficult due to the combination of issues with different nerves. By the time most people come to our office they have been given prescription medications by their doctors and that’s usually the only option offered. Gabapentin, Neurontin, and Lyrica are the most common medications prescribed and are anti-seizure medications designed to slow down the brain so that the brain becomes less aware of the pain. This is why many people complain that they can’t think very well when they are on these medications. These medications attempt to mask their symptoms and are in no way designed to correct the problem of peripheral neuropathy. Sadly, for most people it is the only option they are aware off.
