Neuropathy and COVID-19

The world changed in early 2020 as COVID-19 ravaged the planet. As of the writing of this article the virus has impacted the health of over 191 million people worldwide, resulting in 4 million+ deaths and impacting nearly everything we do in our daily lives. For people who also suffer from peripheral neuropathy, there is also the concern that the virus can make their day-to-day pain even more excruciating.

Today we’re going to discuss the unique neurologic symptoms associated with COVID-19, how the virus can make existing neuropathy symptoms worse, and what actions you can take to not only alleviate your specific nerve pain but eliminate peripheral neuropathy from your life once and for all using the ReBuilder®.

What Are The Most Common Neurologic Symptoms Of Those Who Have Contracted COVID-19?

By this point, we have all heard newscasts and read articles detailing what the most common symptoms of COVID-19 are, but of those symptoms, which are commonly associated with neuropathy?

Loss Of Smell

Many who already have a weakened nervous system may find that the loss of smell—one of the first symptoms of COVID-19—is even more apparent if they have neuropathy. Research indicates the likely cause is due to the neurons that transmit smells to the brain, which have become inflamed. As of now, there is no real treatment available to help restore an infected patient’s sense of smell, however, some recommendations (including vitamin A nasal sprays and omega-3 supplements) taken by mouth seem to help speed up the process.

Muscle Weakness, Numbness & Fatigue

Most people who have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy are all too familiar with the numbness, muscle weakness, and overall fatigue that comes with this condition. When the same patients find themselves suffering from COVID-19 all of these symptoms can become unbearable. Before contracting COVID-19, neuropathy patients were, for the most part, able to attempt some minor tasks with limited pain, such as walking their dogs, folding laundry, or grocery shopping, but adding this horrible virus into the mix makes these chores nearly impossible. In this instance the current method of treatment usually recommended is rest.

Headaches

Very common in COVID-19 cases, and possible (but rarer) in instances of neuropathy, headaches and migraines are commonly reported. Along with the constant throbbing in the head, many diagnosed with COVID have complained about mental fatigue and generally not being able to stay focused with cognitive tasks. Fortunately, rest and traditional headache remedies have proven to be successful to keep these symptoms in check.

Other Risks To Keep In Mind Regarding COVID-19 If You Already Suffer From Neuropathy

Although you can suffer from neuropathy with no known cause, with the help of their doctor most people can identify the underlying reason they have this condition. Cancer, infections, and diabetes are some of the most common culprits with all of these being a possible reason you may be more prone to contract COVID-19 due to a compromised immune system. In extreme instances, some autoimmune diseases that have led to neuropathy require patients to receive scheduled blood infusions. Most blood donors are now being tested for antibodies to COVID-19, but it’s important to understand that there is still a risk involved.

Is There A Pain Remedy For COVID-19 Neuropathy That Actually Works?

It may sound impossible to those suffering from neuropathy but there is hope! The ReBuilder® can stop your neuropathy pain, and you don’t even need to visit your family doctor to receive treatment. Yes, you read that correctly, you can use the ReBuilder® right in the comfort of your own home!

What Is the ReBuilder®?

The ReBuilder® is a very sophisticated, computerized medical device created to relieve your foot and leg pain with absolutely no side effects. This incredible device has become the standard of care utilized in hospitals and clinics throughout the world at institutions like the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Doctors everywhere sing the praises of this unique treatment to help eliminate pain.

How Does the ReBuilder® Work?

Unlike a typical TENS unit which blocks nerve paths so the pain signal can’t reach the brain, the ReBuilder® was designed to open nerve paths. This helps to rehabilitate the nerves, bringing them back to their normal function. The ReBuilder® also encourages the brain to release endorphins, which can relieve anxiety and pain, and is also noted to help users get a better night’s sleep and restores blood circulation to the legs.
