What is Neuropathy Treatment?

Neuropathy treatment refers to a problem with the peripheral nerves. These nerves send messages from the central nervous system, the brain and the spinal cord to the rest of the body.

Neuropathy treatment can affect a range of different nerves, so it can impact a variety of locations in different ways. It can affect a single nerve or several nerves at the same time. The peripheral nerves tell the body when, for example, the hands are cold. It can lead to tingling, prickling, numbness, and muscle weakness in various parts of the body.

Causes of Neuropathy

There are many types of neuropathy causes, but a number of conditions can trigger it.

Diabetes is the most common cause of chronic peripheral neuropathy. It happens when high blood sugar levels damage the nerves.

Other causes include:

  1. Excessive alcohol intake.
  2. Some drugs, for example, chemotherapy and HIV treatment.

  4. Poisons, such as insecticides and solvents.
