Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) refers to disorders affecting the peripheral nerves. A significant number of people using statin medications for cholesterol management may experience this often unrecognized and complex condition.

Defining Neuropathy

Neuropathy encompasses any DAMAGE to the nervous system. Diabetes, a systemic disease, affects all nerves in the body—from those in the brain, eyes, heart, and gastrointestinal system to the nerves in the feet, legs, and hands.

Structure of Peripheral Nerves

The peripheral nervous system consists of nerves branching from the spinal cord to all body parts. Peripheral neurons comprise three main parts: the cell body, axons, and dendrites (nerve/muscle junctions). Axons transmit signals from neuron to neuron or from neuron to muscle.

Symptoms of PN

Symptoms include loss of reflexes, strength, and sensations such as numbness. These changes are often imperceptible initially, as the brain compensates for the losses. Over time, damaged nerves manifest as tingling, burning, or sharp pains.

Patients often describe their pain uniquely, leading to potential confusion in diagnosis and treatment. Consequently, patients may go from one doctor to another, increasing medication doses without addressing the underlying nerve damage.

Loss of sensation in the feet, toes, and ankles can lead to falls due to impaired spatial awareness. Our office has the necessary tools to diagnose this silent nerve damage.

Some patients may become unable to walk, while others experience escalating pains and burning sensations, often worsening at night. Traditional medicine typically offers no cure for PN; medications often only numb the pain without treating the underlying nerve damage, leading to a medicated state without real relief.
