Neuropathy Q & A

What is neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy, often simply called neuropathy, is a condition that affects nearly 20 million Americans. 

Your body has nerves running along its periphery (e.g., in your hands and feet). These nerves are supposed to relay the state of your peripheral body to your central nervous system, alerting it if you’re experiencing pain or discomfort. 

However, in people with neuropathy, these peripheral nerves don’t communicate the way they should. Neuropathy can affect any of the three different nerve types in your peripheral system. This means it can impact your:

  • Sensory nerves, which allow you to feel
  • Automatic nerves, which control bodily functions like heart rate and digestion
  • Motor nerves, which allow you to control muscular movement

What are the symptoms of neuropathy?

Because neuropathy can affect your sensory, automatic, or motor nerves or a combination of the three, its symptoms vary from person to person. That said, some of the most common symptoms include:

  • A numb, tingling sensation in your limbs
  • Muscular weakness
  • Pain that feels sharp, throbbing, or burning
  • Lack of coordination
  • Heightened sensitivity to touch
  • Intolerance to heat
  • Digestion problems

Clearly, neuropathy can exhibit in a number of different ways in your body. If you have unexplained pain, weakness, or numbness in your limbs, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Jassal. 

He has years of experience treating neurological conditions and can help you get the diagnosis and treatment you need to find relief. 

What causes neuropathy?

Neuropathy can be caused by other health conditions, like diabetes and autoimmune disorders, or by imbalances in your body, like vitamin deficiencies or high levels of toxins. Repetitive motion, alcohol abuse, and a family history of neuropathy all heighten your risk for this condition.
