Neuropathy is a condition that simply means “nerve pain”. A common form is referred to as Peripheral Neuropathy, a disorder that is separate from the spinal cord and the brain, but causes extreme discomfort. Peripheral neuropathy, also called distal symmetric neuropathy or sensorimotor neuropathy, is nerve damage in the arms and legs. Other types of neuropathies include Autonomic Neuropathy, Proximal Neuropathy, and Focal Neuropathy. Most of these nerve conditions are caused by diabetes.
What You Notice
Peripheral Neuropathy produces muscle weakness and loss of reflexes, especially at the ankle, leading to changes in walking. Foot deformities may develop such as hammertoes and the arch may collapse. Blisters and sores may start to appear on numb foot areas due to unnoticed pressure or injury. These injuries can become infected, spreading to the bone, resulting in amputation. It is estimated that half of amputations are preventable if issues are found and treated.
Autonomic Neuropathy affects the nerves of the heart, affecting blood pressure and blood glucose levels. It also affects internal organs, causing problems with digestion, respiratory function, urination, sexual response, and vision. .
