Sometimes you just have to wait and see how it goes. You don’t really need any elaborate research studies for this one. All persistent conditions, like weeds in the garden, will become worse in time and for that reason, dealing with the complex conditions gets more difficult over time. As soon as you have nerve loss of 80% or more in the peripheral nerves, it is much more difficult to do anything at all. Time is of the essence in neuropathy care.
The most frequently recommended medications for peripheral neuropathy – Lyrica, Neurontin, and Amitriptyline were not even developed or authorized for the condition. Lyrica and Neurontin (Gabapentin) are anti-seizure medications that can sometimes have dreadful adverse effects like “burning, tingling, feeling numb, or discomfort of arms hands feet or legs. Difficulty in walking or balance, misconceptions, dementia, self-destructive thoughts, challenging defecation, clumsiness, confusion, trouble speaking, and so on, and the list goes on and on.
Amitriptyline, an antidepressant, has its own negative effects such as irregularity, sleepiness, lightheadedness and sexual dysfunction. A number of these negative effects seem like the condition itself, so, in my viewpoint, medications aren’t actually a very good alternative, and besides, they just deal with the SYMPTOMS of the condition. I think that you can NEVER drug your way to better health. The best way is to find natural health websites such as NeuropathyHelp, which can help you find natural solutions without the harsh side effects.
There are some kinds of PN that surgical treatment might aid with, such as a bulging disc or some other kinds of stenosis, however these kinds of neuropathies are normally mononeuropathies that impact just one leg (or arm) and typically just one nerve root, not the more common neuropathy that we’re speaking about here. The kind that impacts BOTH feet and legs (or hands and arms).
If you have muscle weakness, physical treatment can assist enhance your motions, strength, and versatility, all great for neuropathy. I’m a huge fan of workout, however, I’ve never ever seen a case where a client has actually been able to workout and rid of neuropathy completely.
