A fairly common disorder, neuropathy affects more than 20 million people in the United States alone. Usually brought on by some type of damage or injury to peripheral nerves, the actual cause of a sufferer’s condition can be practically impossible to pinpoint, making many cases of neuropathy idiopathic in nature.
Neuropathy itself presents itself in a variety of types, including sensory neuropathy, motor neuropathy, autonomic neuropathy and different types of mononeuropathies. Symptoms of these types of nerve disorders include:
- Tingling and numbness
- Burning, stabbing or shooting pains
- Foot and leg ulcers
- Loss of coordination
- Loss of ability to detect temperature changes
- Muscle weakness, paralysis, cramps, twitching or wasting
- Racing heart beat
- Loss of bladder control
- Bloating, constipation or diarrhea
- Reduction of sweating
- Difficulty with achieving or maintaining an erection
