The Strange Symptoms and Challenges of Peripheral Neuropathy

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

SUBTITLE:
“Unusual Manifestations of Malfunctioning Nerves as Related by a PN Patient”

INTRODUCTION:

Over 100 types of PN have been identified, according to medical research organizations.

This demonstrates the fact that each person will experience the physical results of damaged or diseased nerves, differently than do their fellow patients. Some people feel more of the burning sensation while others may feel very strong tingling that literally feels as if a colony of ants are stinging them simultaneously on their feet and/or legs. Some PN patients are affected exclusively within their feet and they may experience not only tingling and burning sensations within them but they may also feel stabbing pains as well. Others may feel pressure type sensations within their feet and/or their hands, as if they are swollen, when they are actually normal size and no fluid retention (edema) is present in them. Yet other PN sufferers may feel a tightening-sensation within their extremities, as if they are wrapped tightly with spandex bandages or they are wearing tight-fitting socks or gloves.

While PN can affect the upper and/or lower extremities, these are certainly not exclusive to the disease. The trunk of the body can also be involved and all organs inside the body can potentially be involved as well. This is usually the case with nerve damage or neurological diseases that are severe and widespread within the body (systemic) or that involve conditions such as fibromyalgia. This means that physical sensations may not be the only manifestation of PN but other signs of the disease can include hypo-functioning of bodily organs (the inadequate operation of them) and even a complete failure of them in extreme cases. This would include effects that can occur within the kidneys, the heart and the lungs.

Within the chapters, I discuss some of the challenges presented to PN patients, resulting from mild, moderate and severe PN symptom-manifestations. I will also relate some of my personal experiences with the disease as I continue through each chapter. I will not be discussing “causes” for the disease specifically in this particular written work but readers can find more about causes and treatments in my companion book titled: “Peripheral Neuropathy Causes and Treatments”. To my surprise, of my approximate 75 published written works, my original peripheral neuropathy book, has been my largest seller since it was published in late 2010. This revealed to me that it addresses a very common and rapidly-growing health problem.

My purpose for this new book/eBook is to help patients with PN conditions know that they are not alone with the sometimes strange and unusual symptoms of their disease, and to help those with friends or loved ones who are sufferers, understand how diverse and sometimes severe symptoms of nerve-related diseases can actually be.

TABLE OF CONTENTS (Book Length – Approx 4,129 Words):

CHAPTER ONE:
The Burning and Tingling of PN
CHAPTER TWO:
Distinguishing PN from Fibromyalgia
CHAPTER THREE:
Numbness and Proprioception (A Sense of Body Position)

Modifiable Vascular Risk Factors are Associated with Diabetic Neuropathy in Type 1 Diabetes (Postgraduate Medicine)

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In addition to its clinical consequences, neuropathy is estimated to contribute up to 27% of the direct medical costs of caring for patients with diabetes (Gordois et al, 2003). The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (1995) demonstrated that intensive management of glucose control reduced the risk of neuropathy in patients with type 1 diabetes. Nonetheless, the cumulative risk of neuropathy remains substantial and most patients eventually develop impaired nerve conduction, despite good glycemic control. Aside from glycemic control, there is no known treatment to prevent diabetic neuropathy.

Peripheral Neuropathy: When the Numbness, Weakness, and Pain Won’t Stop (American Academy of Neurology)

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Peripheral neuropathy, the variety of conditions that result when the nerves that connect to the brain and spinal cord are damaged or diseased, is commonly associated with diseases such as diabetes, HIV, alcoholism, and lupus. Although widespread — it affects 10–20 million people in the United States — information about the condition has been difficult to obtain. This essential guide explains what is known about peripheral neuropathy, including its causes and manifestations, and what can be done to manage it. Topics include drug therapy for the condition and its symptoms, interventional therapy, alternative medicines, caring for the feet, and much more. This book will enable patients to make informed decisions about their care.

Cardiovascular Signals in Diabetes Mellitus: A New Tool to Detect Autonomic Neuropathy (Cardiology Research and Clinical Development Series)

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Early detection of sub-clinical autonomic dysfunction is of vital importance in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) for the prevention of subsequent serious adverse consequences. Reduction in heart rate variability (HRV) is now regarded as the earliest indicator of cardiovascular dysregulation in DM. HRV has traditionally been quantified using linear measures, which describe the magnitude of RR interval oscillations, but are insufficient to characterise complex heart rate dynamics. While HRV is mostly mediated by parasympathetic nervous system, beat-to-beat blood pressure recordings may provide information regarding sympathetic activity. A variety of novel measures has been developed to quantify non-linear features of cardiovascular signals, providing information on the complexity of the dynamical system involved in the genesis of these short-term fluctuations. In this book, it is demonstrated that novel non-linear methods are often more sensitive to autonomic dysregulation than linear methods and therefore may improve the diagnostic power of cardiovascular variability analysis for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in DM. Our data indicate that cardiovascular dysregulation progresses in relatively short time frames, depending on the history of DM. Further, its progression appears to be associated with glycemic control. Different methods of cardiovascular variability analysis can provide mutually independent information and therefore should be used simultaneously for a comprehensive analysis of autonomic dysfunction to identify patients at risk for autonomic neuropathy.

 

You Can Cope with Peripheral Neuropathy: 365 Tips for Living a Full Life

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Peripheral neuropathy has reached epidemic proportions in recent years. This condition has numerous causes, but can be associated with diseases such as HIV, alcoholism, diabetes, and lupus and may result from medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Symptoms include pain, numbness, loss of balance, and tingling or burning in the extremities. Although widespread, neuropathy is not well understood, and finding reliable information about it can be difficult. Written by a leading doctor in the field and a patient-expert, You Can Cope with Peripheral Neuropathy: 365 Tips for Living a Full Life covers such diverse topics as what to ask at doctor appointments, how to make the house easier to navigate, where to find a support group, how to use vitamins and herbs for treatment, ways to travel safe, and more. The information in this practical book is aimed at both the millions of people afflicted with neuropathy and the families, caregivers, and health-care providers who share the trauma of this debilitating disease.

 

Diabetic Neuropathy (Oxford Diabetes Library)

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Diabetic neuropathy is very common, affecting up to 50% of all diabetic patients. It can result in disabling neuropathic pain, lower extremity amputations and troublesome autonomic neuropathies (gastroparesis, ercectile dysfunction, sudden cardiac death, and so forth). With the rising incidence of diabetes, the prevalence of neuropathy is also likely to increase. Over recent years, there have been new advances in our understanding and treatment of diabetic neuropathies and the problems associated with the disease.

Peripheral Neuropathy Causes and Treatments: Conditions of Nerve Pain and Dysfunction

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

Some estimates by medical research groups state that up to 20 million Americans suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy (PN) and this number is much higher when worldwide statistics are considered. One major reason for the rise in incidence for these conditions of damage to the nerves in the body that results in pain and dysfunction in them is the increase in cases of diabetes and pre-diabetic syndromes. There are many other causes of PN however, including old age, viral infections, nutritional deficiencies, various autoimmune diseases, dysfunction of the arterial system (blood circulation) and drug-use of both prescribed types and varieties of illegal drugs. Within the chapters of this book, I address the types of symptoms involved in PN diseases, the types of nerves that can be affected and treatments that are administered to treat underlying causes of PN and to directly address its symptoms. NOTE: This book is approximately 5,779 words in length. It is not an extensive medical journal but rather contains aspects of information on the subject that most laypersons would be seeking. TABLE OF CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONE: My Personal Battle with Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) CHAPTER TWO: Nerve Damage from Diabetes and Metabolic Syndromes CHAPTER THREE: Other Systemic Diseases Associated with Development of PN CHAPTER FOUR: Viruses that Cause or Contribute to PN CHAPTER FIVE: Nutritional Deficiencies that Lead to PN CHAPTER SIX: Directly Addressing Symptoms of PN It is my sincere hope that this book will serve to gain its readers, a good general education on the subject of Peripheral Neuropathy.
