What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a frustrating, life impairing condition that is frequently overlooked until it’s too late to treat effectively.
This disorder involves nerve damage that affects the extremities of the body, such as the arms and legs, with symptoms that often include pain resembling the experience of pressure from pins and needles. It may result from an underlying cause such as diabetic neuropathy, or the disorder can be idiopathic, with no apparent cause.
Common causes of peripheral neuropathy include vitamin deficiencies, injury, and medication. In many cases of peripheral neuropathy, the underlying cause is idiopathic. Fortunately, recent advances in treatment are offering relief even for idiopathic peripheral neuropathy sufferers.
Treating Peripheral Neuropathy
When it comes to the conventional treatment options available for peripheral neuropathy, many patients choose medication to alleviate their symptoms. The most common medical treatment consists of prescription drugs, such as Gabapentin, Neurontin, Lyrica and Cymbalta.
Unfortunately, these prescription medications interact with all of your nerves. They may relieve the pain that neuropathy can cause, but they won’t treat the underlying condition. There are better options available for sufferers today, and you can choose the treatment option you believe is best for your health.
