Remember that the following can be signs of a Neuropathy:
Peripheral neuropathy may affect one nerve (mononeuropathy), two or more nerves in different areas (multiple mononeuropathy) or many nerves (polyneuropathy).
For some, it may only be a few of these symptoms that occur on a daily basis. Whether it’s a few symptoms or a handful, they have a serious negative effect on your life. The most common symptoms are usually the first ones to occur, but once these first symptoms of numbing and tingling start, they quickly get affect your life in more and more dangerous and painful ways:
The tingling and numbness comes and goes at first, and it’s so minor you don’t think twice. Pretty soon it’s more frequent and painful, especially at night when you’re trying to sleep. You wake up after tossing and turning all night and feel a shooting pain when your foot hits the floor as you step out of bed. As many neuropathy sufferers know, dealing with chronic pain is a constant struggle…
…but the situation isn’t helpless. Far from it.
In fact, many suffer for years and years before pinpointing the problem. So if the above list is hitting close to home, it’s no cause for despair, it’s hopeful news because you may finally be able to take steps towards correcting the issue.
