Frequently Asked Question

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy refers to the conditions that result when nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased. The peripheral nerves make up an intricate network that connects the brain and spinal cord to the muscles, skin, and internal organs. This is a progressive disorder that only gets worse over time.

Neuropathy causes tingling or numbness, especially in the hands and feet. It affects more than 20 million Americans and is caused by damage to single or multiple nerves. There are different types of peripheral neuropathy, but the most common is in those with diabetes.

Peripheral neuropathy may develop at any phase of the diabetes journey, even sometimes as a pre-diabetic or while taking medications. Knowing what some of the causes are and being able to describe your symptoms to your health care team can help you manage neuropathy. Symptoms are often ignored by both patients and health care professionals. If you have symptoms of neuropathy, it is important to discuss this with our health care team as soon as possible.

What are the Symptoms of Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy can affect the nerves that tell you the position of your hands or feet, let your sense hot or cold, or that senses pain. You can experience a tingling, burning, or numbness in certain areas of the body, commonly the hands or feet. These sensations can range from mild to painful and are almost always greatest at night.

  • Numbness or tingling, especially of the hands or feet.
  • Pain or cramping, especially of the hands, feet or calf muscles.
  • Sensitivity to touch or temperature.
  • Loss of reflexes.
  • Muscle wasting in the hands and feet.
  • Weakness, especially in the feet or hands.
  • Loss of balance, particularly in the dark.
  • Dizziness, especially when getting up from a bed or a chair.
  • Sexual dysfunction.
  • Brain Fog such as you can’t remember where you parked your car, or where you put your car keys.
Factors that Increase the Risk of Neuropathy

Neuropathy is most commonly due to diabetes, but various drugs can also cause it such as statins to lower cholesterol. Neuropathy may occur from cancer or the treatment received.

Life factors that may increase the chances of developing neuropathy:

  • Advanced age.
  • A family history of neuropathy (such as with familial diabetes).
  • Malnourishment such as B12 or Vitamin D deficiencies.
  • Excessive use of alcohol.
  • Having a pre existing medical condition such as diabetes or thyroid dysfunction.
  • Some medications (including chemotherapy medications) also increase risk.
How Neuropathy Affects Your Life?

Pain from neuropathy can greatly affect your daily activities and quality of life. Symptoms of neuropathy can range from mild to severe. Each patient’s experience will be different. However, with appropriate treatment, the effects of neuropathy can be limited or eliminated.

If you have neuropathy, you may have:

  • Difficulty standing for long periods or walking without assistance such as with a cane or walker.
  • Problems with balance and an increased risk of falling.
  • Inability to feel the gas or brake pedals and unable to drive.
  • Difficulty with activities like buttoning and tying laces or ties.
  • Sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Numbness or lack of pain sensation.
  • Burning Pain, Throbbing or tingling sensations.

Patients with temperature sensitivity should avoid extreme temperatures and use protective clothing as needed. If there is numbness or an inability to feel pain, it is important to pay careful attention to the skin on the hands and feet because there could be an undetected wound or a break in the skin.

Treatments for Neuropathy

The peripheral nerves have a great ability to heal. Even though it may take months, recovery can occur. However, in some situations, symptoms of neuropathy may lessen, but not completely go away.

Treatments for peripheral neuropathy depend on the cause. For instance:

  • If it is related to nutritional deficiencies, supplements may help.
  • If the neuropathy is related to a medical condition, such as diabetes or thyroid dysfunction, addressing the condition can sometimes reverse the neuropathic symptoms.
  • For neuropathy related to chemotherapy, most treatments are supportive and designed to improve symptoms and function.

Recovery may be helped by:

  • Controlling and correcting contributing conditions such as diabetes or hypothyroidism.
  • Improving blood flow with oxygen to the body with Total Brain & Body O2.
  • Advanced therapies such as Laser, PEMF, Hako Med, PEMF, Pulse Wave, G5, Lumbar Traction, Nitric Oxide supplements, etc

Patient Testimonial

I was a bit skeptical about this procedure, but after receiving the A2M injection I have noticed significant improvement in the range of motion and pain in my neck. I'm 61 years old and over the years I've received multiple injuries to my neck, back, and body in general. I of course have tried everything from acupuncture, message, physical therapy and various pain medications all to really no avail.

I have been dealing with chronic neck & back pain (due to numerous disc issues & a few other things) for over 10 years. Over these years, almost all doctors I had seen told me I generally had 5 options: 1. Do nothing (deal with the pain) 2. Use painkillers 3. Physical therapy 4. Injections (cortisone) 5. Get surgery I don't even remember how many times I tried the first 4 options?! I held...

I was having knee pain and locking didn't want to have surgery or steroid injections saw the post about stem cells, went to seminar and decided to try it. I had injection in February and had relief right away, have no pain issues since. It was one of the best decisions I've made and it was all natural no chemicals that can do more harm. Would definitely recommend this. I am looking into doing it.

I am happy to say after this percedure I am now pain free in my left shoulder and have gained almost full use of right. I can’t thank the people at regenerative medicine of raynham enough for making my life easier and with a lot less.

Hello my name is Deacon Jay. I am ordained as a deacon and I am also a chaplain. I enjoy working with people helping them through their every day life, and sharing experiences with them to continue on in a way to live with great spiritual health. As we all know all our experiences are not ones of joy and sometimes with great pain.

I highly recommend Dr.Petrie , he was the only one that was able to help me feel better after injuring my back , he educates you so you understand how the injury occurred. He educates you on how to prevent injury through body mechanics , posture, & self awareness as well as prescribes you with exercises/mobility to make you.
