Peripheral neuropathy is traditionally treated with medications that suppress nervous system function. This medications generally are anticonvulsants, antidepressants and narcotic pain reliever.
People who has taken this medications find intolerable the side effects of these powerful drugs.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
The peripheral nervous system allows the connection between the brain and spinal cord with the rest of the body like the arms, hands, legs, feet, mouth, face and all the internal organs. The nerves deliver signals about physical sensations back to the brain.
The disorder that occurs when the nerves are damaged or destroyed is called peripheral neuropathy.
The nerves do not work normally, so nerves send wrong signals. It is possible that the nerves send pain signals without reason or otherwise, may not send pain signals even when something bad is happening.
There are several reasons for this to happen. For example an injury, a systemic disease, infection, or it is also possible to be due to an inherited disorder.
Peripheral neuropathy causes much discomfort and is very important to treat it from the beginning. Determining the cause is also vital to control or remove the cause.
