So you’re experiencing neuropathy, but do you know how you got to this point? Many cases of neuropathy are actually considered idiopathic, so the cause is unknown, but just as many cases are caused by diabetes. The rest of the cases, also called acquired neuropathy, are caused by any of the following:
- Trauma or pressure on nerves. This could be caused by anything from a cast or crutch to repetitive motion like typing on a keyboard. We all need to be careful with this now that everyone is becoming tech savvy.
- Nutritional problems or a lack of vitamins, so make sure you get your dose of vitamin B!
- Alcoholism and a poor diet.
- Autoimmune diseases. For example: lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Tumors, which press up against nerves in many cases.
- Other diseases and infections, such as kidney disease, liver disease, Lyme disease, HIV/AIDS, or hypothyroidism
- Inherited disorders, also known as hereditary neuropathies.
- Poison exposure from toxins like heavy metals, and certain medications and cancer treatments.
Your case of neuropathy is more than likely leaving you in pain, but there are treatments available to help treat or reduce these pains, such as Neurvasia, a scientifically formulated medical food which enhances the physiological function of the neurovascular system.
