Causes of Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy affects millions, manifesting as pain, numbness, and weakness in various parts of the body. This condition can significantly impact the quality of life, leading to discomfort and disability. While the specific causes vary widely, neuropathy symptoms are often associated with underlying health issues such as restless leg syndrome and sciatic neuropathy. Recent studies have also highlighted a connection between peripheral neuropathy and the use of statin drugs, commonly prescribed to lower cholesterol. Understanding these associations is crucial in developing effective treatment plans tailored to the individual needs of our patients.

Symptoms of Neuropathy

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy often manifest in the feet and legs or hands and arms, presenting a range of discomforts. Patients may experience everything from mild tingling and/or numbness to severe pain, significantly impacting daily life. These symptoms can also include muscle weakness, loss of coordination, and changes in touch sensitivity, particularly affecting fine motor skills. Early detection is vital; if left untreated, peripheral neuropathy can lead to permanent nerve damage and the possible loss of extremities.

Causes of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Vitamin Deficiency
  • Chemotherapy
  • Alcoholism
  • Prescription Medications
  • Agent Orange / War Toxins

  • Degenerative or Herniated Discs
  • Ischemia
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Other Autoimmune Disorders

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Sharp Pains or Cramps

  • Burning Pain in the Legs, Feet or Hands

  • Extreme Sensitivity to Touch
  • Loss of Balance or Coordination
  • Feelings of Walking on Pins and Needles
  • Weakness in the Arms and/or Legs

  • Numb Feet
  • Tingling Sensation or Pain

  • Dependency on Pain Medications
  • Discoloration in the Feet
  • Cold Feet or Hands

Complications of Neuropathy

The complications associated with neuropathy vary depending on the cause of the nerve damage. Some neuropathies can be fatal. In fact, one of the most common causes of death in people over the age of 60 is due to a fall due to balance issues caused by numb feet. Falls can also lead to broken hips and concussions. Other complications include foot ulcers (open wounds) that develop on the skin and can’t heal due to the lack of blood supply to the affected area, walking and balance issues from being unable to feel the feet, trouble sleeping due to pain or tingling, gangrene (tissue death) which could lead to amputation. Early diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy may be able to prevent these and other complications from occurring.
