Peripheral Neuropathy Q & A

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage that stems from the brain or spinal cord. While neuropathy can affect many of your bodily functions, the most common sign of the condition is pain, tingling, or weakness in the arms, hands, legs, or feet.

Without proper treatment, neuropathy tends to worsen over time. The sooner you seek professional treatment for neuropathy, the less likely you are to suffer long-term nerve damage.

Are there different types of neuropathy?

Among several types of neuropathies, but the main four are:

Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy, which typically affects the extremities, is highly common in individuals with diabetes and vascular disorders.

Autonomic neuropathy

Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves responsible for controlling your involuntary functions, such as heart rate and digestion.

Proximal neuropathy

Far less common than the previous two, proximal neuropathy primarily occurs on one side of your body, often in the buttocks, thigh, or leg.

What are the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy?

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy depend primarily on the type, location, and severity of your condition. The most common signs of neuropathy include:

  • Tingling, numbness, pain, or weakness in the extremities
  • Difficulty feeling temperature changes
  • Poor balance
  • Difficulty walking
  • Excessive sweating
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Muscle weakness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Constipation or diarrhea

Neuropathy symptoms can become debilitating without early intervention. Seeking treatment at the first sign of neuropathy can help prevent additional nerve damage.

What causes peripheral neuropathy?

Many degenerative conditions, diseases, and traumatic injuries can cause neuropathy, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Tumors
  • Chemotherapy
  • Automimmmune disease
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lymphoma
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Lyme disease
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Human immunodeficiency virus
  • Spinal cord injuries

Alcohol abuse, heavy metals, and other toxic substances can also increase your risk of neuropathy.

What are the treatments for peripheral neuropathy?

To minimize pain and treat nerve damage from peripheral neuropathy, Dr. Horrilleno offers a clinically proven protocol that’s  FDA-cleared. By combining a pain-reducing local anesthetic with electronic cell signaling treatment (EST), this innovative treatment can help relieve your discomfort and regenerate your damaged nerves.
