Neuropathy, Numbness and Tingling with pain can be a devastating condition. Many patients who suffer report they feel like they feel like they are stepping on crushed glass, marbles, Legos®, or they say that there is a balled up piece of sock or clothing under the foot. The symptoms can be mild at first but they usually worsen. This leads to less activity, less walking and more pain. The suffering can get so severe that patient ask that the limbs be amputated, they report that it completely ruins they ability to be intimate, they lose the ability and desire to walk from one room to another and the pain prevents sleep frequently. They stop using the affected hand, finger or limb. Quality of life drops seriously.
Numbness and tingling and general loss of sensation will often begin rather mild and is not always associated with pain, but it can also have very devastating consequences. The numb toe, foot, leg or arm and hand can frequently become less coordinated and the potential for injury increases. Patients will press their hand or arm into a hot pan or oven and not realize they have burned themselves badly.
If the Neuropathy, Numbness and Tingling sufferer is also a type two diabetic, the consequences of a minor injury can progressively lead to infection. In some cases the infection will worsen and the neuropathy, numbness and tingling and pain prevent the person from knowing the fact that their own skin is dying! This necrotic skin and underlying tissue can lead to gangrene. Gangrene often requires amputation.
The suffering from this devastating condition is not necessary. Dietary changes, our technologies for increasing circulation, increasing painless exercise and physical therapy, and specific spinal structural and postural rehabilitation can all reduce these symptoms.
Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity TestingLike many progressive health conditions, the earlier the symptoms are treated the less likely the condition is to become permanent, worsen and lead to complications.
