There are many symptoms neuropathy sufferers have to worry about
including burning sensations in your face, sharp pain in your feet as well
as tingling in your hands. This article is going to explain what symptom
care you can utilize to mitigate future problems.
1: Avoid Doing These Things
Do your best to avoid repetitive motions, tight body positions, smoking,
and drinking (a copious amount) as these all are factors that may cause nerve damage.
2: Do This For 30 mins per Day
With the authorization of your doctor, do your best to get half an hour
of walking each day as this may help regulate glucose levels and steer away from more neuropathy pain from developing. While walking and other forms of exercise may be difficult (depending on where your neuropathy is and the extent of pain/discomfort you’re feeling) – the science doesn’t lie.
According to numerous studies, exercise reduces nerve pain by reducing levels of certain inflammation-promoting factors. Not only that, but researchers have found it may even slow the development of painful diabetic neuropathy.
3: Eat the Right Foods
Incorporate fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains into your diet that help keep your nerves healthy. Lean meats, low-fat dairy foods, fish, and eggs are all packed with vitamin B-12 so your body will never run out. If you happen to have an allergy to any of those foods, B-12
supplements are available.
4: Look for Underlying Problems
Try to combat any other underlying reason peripheral neuropathy can
find its way to you: diabetes, alcoholism or rheumatoid arthritis can all
lead to neuropathy. Do this by following tips 1-4.
5: Take Care of Your Feet Daily
Check for blisters, cuts or calluses. Soft and padded shoes usually help
and they’re quite accessible. There are hoops designed to keep blankets off of your sensitive feet. Do this whether you have diabetes or not.
