peripheral-neuropathyYou can’t find a cause of Peripheral Neuropathy if you don’t have it…

Doesn’t it make sense that before you can trace the cause of Peripheral Neuropathy you would need to determine if you had it in the first place? This is the first of several steps in handling the condition.

Defining Peripheral Neuropathy

This condition affects the “peripheral nervous system” (PNS), a network of nerves linking the central nervous system up with the extremities. The brain and spinal cord need to communicate to the rest of the body. The PNS makes this possible. The first tip-off to this condition is numbness and tingling or pain in these peripheral areas. Studying symptoms closely serves to do more than relieve pain. It allows a connection to be made to the cause of the condition and, therefore, an eventual solution.

Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms

While there are numerous symptoms of this painful condition, there are several which are most common:

  • Numbness or a tingling sensation
  • Oversensitivity
  • Coordination disturbances
  • Loss of balance
  • Falling
  • Weakness in muscle groups
  • Pain in arms or legs

Depending on from where these symptoms originate, various levels of intervention are required. Interestingly enough, labeling it Peripheral Neuropathy does not much matter. For, in the end, the cause is what needs handling, not the symptoms. The label merely describes symptoms which do not lead to a terminal solution.

Labels and Diagnosis are not the same thing!

A diagnosis should be more than just a label. Otherwise there is no lasting result. You are merely treating symptoms and teaching the patient to live with it. There are many causes of this condition and, therefore, many different solutions. This is why one treatment seldom works in all cases. The causes differ widely.

Could mineral deficiency be causing it?

One of the leading causes of the symptoms above is mineral deficiency. Calcium deficiency is a leading cause, especially of pain. Even when it is in ample supply, however, it can remain unused. For it needs other minerals like magnesium to be active. Magnesium, however, may also be in deficiency.

There are only two choices when dealing with pain and discomfort

Nerves and muscles require a balance of both calcium and magnesium to be effective. In deficiency they malfunction. When such happens, there are but two options: Label it and live with it OR find out its cause and DEAL with it. Peripheral Neuropathy may be a real condition but, is but a label given to a number of symptoms. The causes of these symptoms can be numerous, as can the ways to resolve them permanently.

Fulfilling mineral deficiency to combat or prevent Peripheral Neuropathy

One thing is for sure: one of the best ways to test a condition is to fulfill any deficiencies. If there are any symptoms left over, there are other things to investigate. While visiting a doctor and getting examined is advisable for any painful condition, supplementing or fulfilling mineral and vitamin requirements in the diet can pay dividends in results. That’s why the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is so popular. Fulfilling the body’s base requirements makes it function properly. Illness is sometimes that simple.
