Peripheral Neuropathy and The Feet

The effect peripheral neuropathy can have onFungus Eliminator Reviewone's feet can be profound. Essentially a disease of sensation, peripheral neuropathy can lead to numerous foot problems, making prevention through proper foot care vitally important. This article will review what causes peripheral neuropathy, and will discuss the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in the feet and legs. Finally, it will explain what measures can be taken to protect the feet from harm.

Peripheral neuropathy is a broad term describing disease of the nervous system outside the brain and spinal cord. While it typically refers to abnormal nerve function in the legs, it can also refer to symptoms in the arms and hands as well. The overall disease can have many different causes, but the underlying symptom in common is decreased sensation. Decreased sensation can take on a broad definition with multiple levels of severity. In some cases, the decreased sensation is imperceptible to the person with peripheral neuropathy and is noticeable only on a medical exam. Testing for inabilities to feel the difference between a pin-prick and a flat object, vibration, and light stroking touch can reveal the sensation loss. On the other hand, peripheral neuropathy can also lead to outright numbness. The foot can feel heavy, padded, swollen, or creased as a result of this numbness.

More advanced cases of peripheral neuropathy actually have painful sensations as part of the symptoms. These include burning pain (like the foot is on fire), tingling (like the foot is waking up from 'being asleep'), pins and needles poking sensation, and sharp, shooting, electrical pains. The most advanced cases affect the way the diseased nerves control the muscles of the leg and foot. Cramping, weakness, minor balance loss, and muscle wasting can be seen in severe cases of peripheral neuropathy. Even the skin is not spared the effects of peripheral neuropathy, as the nervous system controls automatic functions like sweating through the autonomic nervous system. Decreased nerve control leads to less sweating and oil production, leading to dry and cracked skin as a direct result of peripheral neuropathy.
