Treatment for Various Neurological Problems
There are many nerves in the body, and those that are not covered by other neurological problems are covered by neuropathy. The problem caused will depend on the type of nerve affected. This includes sensory nerves, motor nerves, or autonomic nerves.
Sensory nerves are those that control sensation, and the symptoms will include tingling, pain, weakness, or numbness. Motor nerves are those nerves that give your body power and allow you to move. Symptoms of neuropathy in these nerves will include weakness. The autonomic nerves are those that control the body systems, which can cause symptoms of changes in heart rate and blood pressure, or increased sweating.
Neuropathy can be caused by:
- Some cancers
- B12 deficiency
- Excess alcohol use
- Chronic liver disease
- Chronic kidney disease
There are many other causes of neuropathy, almost 30% of which are simply idiopathic – of an unknown cause. However, treatment is available to help with the symptoms that stem from neuropathy. Give us a call today to make an appointment at (713) 795-4785.
