Does leg and or foot pain keep you awake at night? Do you feel a prickling and or tingling in your hands and or feet? Do you suffer from restless leg syndrome? You may be suffering from Neuropathy. The good news is that there is hope!
Neuropathy is a disease or degenerative state of the peripheral nerves in which motor, sensory, or vasomotor nerve fibers may be affected, which is marked by muscle weakness and atrophy, pain and numbness. There are three types of neuropathy: the most common is peripheral neuropathy, followed by diabetic neuropathy and pharmaceutical neuropathy, including post chemotherapy neuropathy. All three types of neuropathy have differing symptoms, the most common being prickling or tingling in your extremities, the feeling that there is a stone or something in your shoe and difficulty sleeping from leg and foot discomfort.
The underlying cause of all types of neuropathy is the problem of impaired circulation in the capillary beds. Without blood flow to the tissues, oxygen and nutrients cannot get into the tissues and the waste products of metabolism cannot get out. This puts a severe stress on the tissues causing them to go into survival mode. The cells use what limited resources they have to stay alive and higher functions including healing and repair essentially shut down. When nerves “shut down” you may experience burning, numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities as well as difficulty walking.
