THE ANSWER TO DIABETIC LEG PAIN?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Oct 31, 2017

One of the complications of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy is a result of nerve damage which often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet.

People generally describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning as well as a loss of sensation compared to a feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove.

Peripheral neuropathy is a serious disease of blood vessels that supply the nerves as well as the nerves themselves

What Are Your treatment Options for Peripheral Neuropathy?

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Fri, Oct 02, 2015

If you suspect you have or have been diagnosed with neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy, you know it is not pleasant. Suffering from burning, shooting or electric shock type pain, especially when you are inactive is a common occurance. In my opinion, the worst symptom of neuropathy is the inability to have a great sense of balance. When your feet can't accurately sense the surface you are walking on, you risk falling.

Since medications don't help with the underlying causative factor(s) for neuropathy nerve damage, one of the most dreaded and dangerous side effects of peripheral neuropathy often occurs. What is this most dangerous neuropathy symptom? In my opinion it is the loss of balance due to subtle or significant loss of sensation in the feet. The loss of balance can lead to falls and even death!
