Peripheral Neuropathy Special neurons

Peripheral neuropathy and symptoms started to really bother me around 2010, maybe the end of 2012. I'm not sure.

But I am sure of one thing: since the blessed neuropathy and its pains began to “make me miserable”, memories of days, or even afternoons without discomfort, and how many nights I spent here, on this table, with my eyes stuck on this screen without less ability to do anything and viscerally unable to sleep.

Look. I affirm, confirm and reaffirm

Nperipheral europatia and Symptom.

Symptoms vary according to the type of peripheral neuropathy and can develop quickly or slowly.

The main categories of peripheral neuropathy include:

  1. sensory neuropathy - damage to nerves that transmit messages of touch, temperature, pain and other sensations in the brain

  2. harmful neuropathy to the nerves that control autonomous motor functions;

  3. autonomic neuropathy of damage to nerve fibers that involuntarily control bodily processes, such as digestion, bladder function and blood pressure control;

  4. mononeuropathy - damage to a single nerve outside the central nervous system - (difficult is, I know, when it comes to the “tri-twin” nerve

In many cases, someone with peripheral neuropathy may have more than one of these categories of peripheral neuropathy at the same time.

A combination of sensory and motor neuropathy is particularly common (sensorimotor polyneuropathy).

Sensory neuropathy

Symptoms of sensory neuropathy can include:

  • pain such as pins and needles in the affected body part;

  • numbness (paresthesia) and less ability to feel pain or changes in temperature, especially in the feet;

  • a burning or strong feeling, and pain, usually in the feet and other places (hyperesthesia)

  • Vivid and excruciating pains for something that does not exist and would not be painful; *** My observation

  • loss of balance or coordination caused by a lesser ability to distinguish the position of the feet or hands;

Motor neuropathy

Symptoms of motor neuropathy can include:

  • muscle spasms and cramps;

  • muscle weakness or paralysis (the link opens in another tab, another website, in English) thatfetate one or more muscles;

  • loss of muscle mass;

  • difficulty raising the front of the foot and toes, particularly noticeable when walking (foot drop)

Peripheral Neuropathy its Causes and Symptoms

Autonomic neuropathy

Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy can include:


Depending on the specific nerve affected, symptoms of mononeuropathy can include:

  • altered feeling or weakness in the fingers

  • double vision or other problems with focusing the eyes, sometimes with eye pain

  • weakness on one side of the face (Bell's palsy)

  • pain in the feet or shins, weakness or feeling of change

The most common type of mononeuropathy is carpal tunnel syndrome. The carpal tunnel is a small tunnel in your wrist.

In carpal tunnel syndrome, the nerve median gets compressed where it passes through this tunnel, which can cause tingling, pain or numbness in the fingers.
