Do you know what neuropathy is? Neuropathy is the term used to describe the malfunctions of nerves. Let me take you back to a quick review of science in case you’ve already forgotten about it. Nerves can be found anywhere in your body and just like everything else inside your body, it can get damaged due to disease or injury. The term neuropathy is classified based on its location or based on the nerves affected. Take for instance if neuropathy is a result of diabetes then you call it diabetic neuropathy.
I’ll walk you through the different types of neuropathy in a bit so you can have an idea what it’s all about. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nerves affected are not located anywhere in the spinal cord and in the brain. In patients with peripheral neuropathy, the pain is felt in the toes, legs, fingers, hands, and arms. Another term called proximal neuropathy is used to describe nerve damage that takes place in the buttocks, hips, thighs, and shoulders.
Then there’s cranial neuropathy where the damage takes place in any of the 12 cranial nerves that exit the brain. There are two specific types of cranial neuropathy, there’s auditory neuropathy and then there’s optic neuropathy. When it’s auditory, the damage involves the nerves that transport signal from the inner ear to the brain. This nerve is responsible for hearing. Meanwhile, optic neuropathy is the term used to describe disease or damage to the optic nerve. This is the nerve that sends signals from the retina to the brain.
There are different reasons why people get neuropathy. Nerve damage can be caused by a number of factors like infections, injuries, and diseases. The following are some of its causes.
Diabetes is one of the most popular cases of neuropathy. As I’ve mentioned, the term used to describe nerve pain among diabetics is referred to as diabetic neuropathy. Those who are deficient in vitamin b12 and folate can also experience damage to the nerves. Autoimmune diseases can also cause nerve damage including Guillain-Barre syndrome, systemic lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. Infections can also cause neuropathy such as Lyme disease, syphilis, leprosy and HIV/AIDS. Then there’s post-herpetic neuralgia, a complication that results from shingles. This too is considered a form of neuropathy.
Nerve damage can be nerve-wracking, literally. It impairs you to do what you’re supposed to do on a daily basis. You can control the pain by taking pain medications or by using Nerve Renew by Neuropathy Treatment Group.
