Neuropathy Explained

bottom_rightThere should be a book entitled “Medical Jargon For Dummies” which would explain various medical terminology and medical definitions in words that are understandable. Sitting in a doctor’s office awaiting a diagnosis can be difficult on its own but to add in the medical terminology and jargon only complicates an already stressful situation. When hearing a diagnosis being given the patient needs to know and understand what is being told to them so that they are able to understand the changes that may be needed to live life more comfortably.

Neuropathy is a condition that can have a profound effect on a person and his or her life. Neuropathy can be a difficult diagnosis to understand due to its complex nature. Neuropathy is a complex condition that can have an effect on the body’s nervous system.    Neuropathy can be considered a collection of disorders that develop when damaged to the peripheral nervous system occurs. The peripheral nervous system refers to the part of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord; when damage occurs to the nerve cells or nerve axons, it is called peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy is a painful condition that can have an effect on an individual’s life and their ability to maintain a normal active life.

Say That Again

Neuropathy, simply said, is when there is a communication breakdown between the brain and spinal cord. When there is a breakdown in communication, it is if static is being heard and the nerve endings are getting mixed messages as to what they should or should not be sensing. The brain is what communicates to the sensory nerves that the burner they are about to touch is hot and the sensory nerves communicates back to the brain that they could sense through touch that the burner is too hot. When this line of communication is not working correctly, an individual has a hard time computing when something is hot or cold, terrain changes and if injury has occurred.

What Neuropathy Symptoms Look Like

Peripheral polyneuropathy affects the hand, feet and legs and occurs on both sides of the body. Painful sensations from peripheral neuropathy are often described as a tingling or burning sensation. Neuropathy symptoms affect nerves that: control muscle movement also known as motor nerves, the sensory nerves which helps the body detect sensations such as hot and cold. Neuropathy symptoms make it extremely difficult to walk and operate on a normal basis. The inflicted areas become overly sensitive to touch and pressure, therefore nerve pain can become so intense that neuropathic sufferers can make the mistake of becoming inactive in hopes of relieving their neuropathy pain and lessening the symptoms felt be staying off their feet.

Neuropathy symptoms differ from patient to patients based on what neuropathy classification they fall into as well as how far their neuropathy has progressed. A few of the symptoms that an individual may suffer from or with would include the following:

  • Tingling
  • Burning
  • Needle-like pinching
  • Numbness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of coordination
  • Itching
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Dull ache
  • Involuntary muscle spasms
