Chiropractic Gig Harbor WA Acupuncture

Neuropathy in Gig Harbor is a type of chronic pain that arises from chronic, progressive nerve disease or damage. It is not a singular health condition but a term to describe a range of health problems from the damage to the peripheral nerves and the symptoms of those issues.

This is why it is often called peripheral neuropathy.

The peripheral nervous system connects the nerves from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body, arms, hands, feet, legs, internal organs, mouth, face, etc.

These nerves deliver signals about sensations back to the brain.

When the nerves in this nervous system get damaged, the nerves’ normal functioning is disrupted and they might end up causing wrong signals to go to the brain, like pain when no pain or no pain when pain should be present, etc.

This condition can be called neuropathy or peripheral neuropathy. And it can flare up and cause immense pain, even immobilization, at any random moment in the day without any obvious signs or pain-inducing reason or event.

The pain, when you do experience it is usually stabbing, electric shocks, pins, and needles, or burning like pain, or numbness or loss of sensation can occur too, which can be constant or occur intermittently.

The condition gets worse with a lack of treatment and time and needs immediate care.

The usual causes for neuropathy include:

  • Degenerative diseases
  • Aging
  • Injuries
  • Infections
  • Hereditary disorder or health condition

Some common symptoms of neuropathy include:

  • Tingling in the hands and feet
  • Tightness in the hands and feet like a glove or sock
  • Sharp stabbing pain
  • Numbness or lack of sensation in the hands or feet
  • Heaviness or immobility of arms and legs
  • The unconscious dropping of things from hands
  • Electric shocking sensations
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Difficulty with digestion
  • Excessive sweating
  • Drop-in blood pressure
  • Skin thinning

These are just the most common symptoms, be sure to let your doctor know all your symptoms to know the severity, cause, and actual problem that you have.
