Peripheral Neuropathy can be a debilitating condition and its causes vary. It’s more than simply numbness of the extremities. It can cause tingling, burning, and even great pain. Neuropathy can lead to such sensitivity that simple contact with bed sheets can keep a person from sleeping. We have had countless patients come to us with neuropathy who had run out of hope and we were the last stop before giving up. Gone untreated, it will likely only become more severe and we are here to offer you help.
Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
Some of the conditions that can lead to peripheral neuropathy are cancer treatment, cholesterol medications, surgery, injury, or autoimmune diseases, the most common of these being diabetes. Another possible cause that may surprise you is a sensitivity to certain foods. How often has this information been shared with you? Not too often, most likely.
