The truth behind numb, tingling and painful feet

A common reason for the symptoms listed above is a condition called peripheral neuropathy. If you do not suffer from neuropathy, chances are you know someone who does as this disorder affects over 20 million Americans. It is the leading cause of disability and many people are not aware they have it, do not understand it if they do and often do not have adequate treatment.

What do I need to know about neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder of the peripheral nerves and causes pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. It usually affects the hands and feet. It can develop after a traumatic injury, an infection, nutritional imbalance, tumors, diabetes and exposure to toxins. There are over 100 types of peripheral neuropathy but there are several symptoms they share in common:

  • Burning pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Sharp pain that comes on suddenly
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of balance
  • Heaviness in legs

Dr. Marco Vargas, a foot specialist in Texas has seen the damaging effects neuropathy can have. This condition can slowly progress over time and end up causing permanent nerve damage and disability if treatment is not sought. It’s up to you. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t make light of them and just hope they go away on their own. See Dr. Vargas for a full evaluation and get treatment started so neuropathy does not take over your life.
