Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy depend on which type of nerve is affected. The three main types of nerves are sensory, motor, and autonomic. Neuropathy can affect any one or a combination of all three types of nerves. Symptoms also depend on whether the condition affects the whole body or just one nerve (as from an injury).

SENSATION CHANGES

  • changes in sensation
  • burning sensations
  • nerve pain
  • tingling or numbness,
  • an inability to determine joint position, which causes incoordination.
  • Lack of muscle control
  • Difficulty or inability to move a part of the body (paralysis)
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Muscle twitching (fasciculation) or cramping
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Falling (from legs buckling or tripping over toes)
  • Lack of dexterity (such as being unable to button a shirt)

For years it has been a mystery how to manage neuropathy pain. However, people just like you, all over the globe, have discovered that they can have their life back and do the things they used to do, because their nerves can be rebuilt!

Regardless of your type of neuropathic pain: idiopathic, diabetic, chemotherapy induced, or trauma to the lower back, the ReBuilder® can help. Perhaps portions of your nerves were temporarily starved for oxygen. Maybe there was too much sugar in your blood before you got your diabetes in control. Maybe you had some pinching of your nerves somewhere, maybe you were exposed to a strong neurotoxin like black mold, pesticides or Agent Orange. Even statin drugs to reduce cholesterol, and drugs to lower your blood pressure can cause neuropathy.

Whatever the cause, one mechanical result was that your nerves may have adapted by contracting; they reduced their length and volume to conserve and survive, and the gaps between the nerves were expanded. Normal nerve signals could no longer jump this now enlarged gap. The nerve impulses going to and from your brain, muscles and blood vessels were obstructed. Your brain began to ignore the impaired signals, resulting in the sensations of pain, numbness, tingling, or burning.

Over time, the impaired signals create confusion for the brain, resulting in painful or conflicting sensations like feeling cold when warm, feeling like walking on broken glass when not, feeling burning sensations.
