Your arms, hands, legs or feet? Is your entire body suffering from a stabbing, throbbing or numbness that even the simple act of walking becomes like an everyday chore?
If so, this pain you are feeling is known as neuropathy pain, which is nerve pain as the result of a lack of blood flow to the heart. This can cause certain parts of the body to feel discomfort and pressure making every day activities such as standing, balancing or picking up a spoon near impossible.
But don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Nerve pain is common in most diabetic and chemotherapy patients, as well as individuals suffering from a broken ankle or foot. Let’s take a moment to look at some of the more common signs to neuropathy pain. Ask yourself do I have one or all of these pain symptoms?
Numbness or tingling in feet and hands
Loss of balance and falling
Throbbing and sharp pain
Extreme sensitivity to touch
Dropping things with your hands
Heavy feeling in arms and legs
Dramatic drop in blood pressure
If you answered yes to one or all of these, you may be experiencing nerve pain. Recognizing this is the first step to getting the help you need.
