Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

If you’re reading this, likely, you are currently suffering from the pain and anguish caused by peripheral neuropathy. The weakness and numbness that constantly targets your feet, hands or both can be not only excruciating but also cause you to feel as if you’re missing out on living life. Things you would take for granted before the onset of peripheral neuropathy, like going for a walk, buying groceries, gardening, or even just getting a good night’s sleep all seem like a luxury at this point.

But what causes peripheral neuropathy, and even more important, how do you find relief from this life-changing condition?

There Are Numerous Factors That Can Cause Peripheral Neuropathy

The sad truth is anyone can fall victim to peripheral neuropathy. Without a doubt, this is a sobering fact that we must keep in mind when trying to ascertain what can bring on this horrible condition.

The term “peripheral” when speaking of neuropathy relates to the peripheral nervous system which is responsible for sending information from your spinal cord, brain, and central nervous system throughout the body. Every nerve has a specific function. We all understand that we have sensory nerves allowing us, say, to feel the temperature or texture of an object. We have a wide array of nerves that assist us with our daily motor skills such as typing, using an ATM, or tying our shoes. In addition, there are even more nerves that are on “autopilot”, meaning they control basic body functions including digestion, blood pressure, and heart rate.

When any of your nerves become damaged a signal is communicated to your brain or spine resulting in the feeling of pain. But what are some of the major reasons these nerves can become damaged?

Traumatic Injuries

Nerves can be damaged by certain incidents commonly referred to as “traumatic injuries”. This can literally be anything as simple as falling and getting bruised to something as severe as a gunshot wound and nearly all injuries in between. A minor cut, drug injection injury, or even stretching prior to a morning jog can result in a traumatic nerve injury.

Infections & Diseases

A wide variety of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, HIV as well as vasculitis (an inflammation of the blood vessels), have also been found to cause peripheral neuropathy.

Bone marrow disorders, Lyme disease, kidney disease often found in those suffering from chronic alcoholism, and hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) have all been contributing factors in the onset of peripheral neuropathy as well.

Exposure To Toxins

In some instances, peripheral neuropathy can be traced to toxic substances the sufferer has been exposed to including high levels of lead and mercury, heavy metals, and various chemicals found in certain types of industrial employment jobs.

Hereditary & Genetics

Even your family’s genetic makeup can put you at a higher risk of experiencing peripheral neuropathy. Just because the tingling “pins and needles” feeling may not have appeared during your youth there’s no guarantee this pain won’t become prevalent as you reach middle age or older.

What Are Common Symptoms Of Peripheral Neuropathy?

It’s quite possible you or a loved one may actually have multiple symptoms of peripheral neuropathy and have never even realized it. If you find yourself experiencing any of the following signs related to peripheral neuropathy it’s important to speak with your family practitioner:

  • Chronic muscle weakness
  • Pain in the feet during basic activities (walking, sitting, standing for short periods)
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Frequent numbness, tingling, or prickling of the feet and hands
  • Sensation of wearing socks or gloves when you aren’t
  • Jabbing, throbbing, or burning pain
