Peripheral Neuropathy and its Management.
Do you find your hands or feet often feel numb, tingly, painful, and either too hot or too cold? Perhaps they have a sensation of tightness, or you have started to experience difficulties with your balance? The problem could be down to peripheral neuropathy, a problem that occurs most frequently in patients already suffering from diseases such as diabetes and vascular disorders, certain hereditary conditions and autoimmune disorders, and cancer patients who have had chemotherapy. Vitamin deficiencies, exposure to toxins such as heavy metals, and alcohol abuse can also be contributory factors. There are many possible causes however sometimes there is no obvious reason as to why you have peripheral neuropathy.
