Now, just what is neuropathic pain? Neuropathic pain is an assortment of disorders that appear when the nerves of the part of the nervous
system outside the brain and spinal cord are impaired. It typically causes pain
and numbness in the hands and feet. Sitka neuropathic pain patients
may find that it results from injury, infections, metabolic disorders such as
diabetes, and toxin exposure. Neuropathy may cause muscle movement due to nerve
damage and also irritate nerves that affect internal organs such as the heart,
blood vessels, urinary bladder and intestines. Neuropathic pain can be
described as numbness, tingling, or burning. It may affect a single nerve, two or more nerves or result in more generalized
pain as in diabetic neuropathy or Guillain-Barre syndrome. Neuropathy commonly
affects both legs and feet. Onset may be sudden or gradual with muscle
weakness, cramps, or spasm. Sufferers may find difficulty with walking, running,
stumbling, and fatigue. Balance may be impaired.
