MIAMI, FL, August 05, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that results from damage to the peripheral nervous system—the nerves located outside of the brain and spine. One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. However, it can also stem from several other factors, such as chronic diseases, nutritional imbalances, sudden trauma or injury, exposure to heavy toxins or metals, or chronic alcoholism.
The condition is typically characterized by numbness and tingling, especially within the limbs and extremities of the body. It can also cause unexplained pain or burning, a loss of balance, extreme weakness, and fatigue, as well as headaches.
At times, symptoms may be severe or worsen and spread over time. These situations may lead to more serious conditions such as paralysis, heart problems, or loss of bodily function in glands and organs. Although peripheral neuropathy may severely impact an individual's overall quality of life, it can be treated and we can help.
While typical peripheral neuropathy treatment approaches involve the use of medication—such as antidepressants, pain medications, or anti-seizure medications—there are clear and present dangers to be considered with these methods. Even further, these approaches only mask symptoms and allow the patient to merely "cope" with the condition.
