03 Apr Sensory Neuropathy Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment?
Sensory neuropathy is a condition that affects the sensory nerves in the body. It can cause numbness, tingling, and pain in the extremities, such as the hands and feet. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including diabetes, chemotherapy, and certain medications. In this blog, we’ll discuss what sensory neuropathy is, its symptoms, causes, and treatment options.
What is Sensory Neuropathy?
Sensory neuropathy is a type of neuropathy that affects the sensory nerves. These nerves are responsible for sending information from the body to the brain, such as temperature, pain, and touch. When these nerves are damaged, they can no longer send signals properly, resulting in numbness, tingling, and pain.
Symptoms of Sensory Neuropathy
The symptoms of sensory neuropathy can vary depending on the severity of the condition. Some people may only experience mild symptoms, while others may have more severe symptoms. Common symptoms include:
Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet.
Pain in the hands or feet.
Loss of sensation in the hands or feet.
Weakness in the muscles of the hands or feet.
Difficulty walking or using the hands.
Increased sensitivity to touch.
Causes of Sensory Neuropathy
There are many different factors that can cause sensory neuropathy. Some of the most common causes include:
Diabetes: High blood sugar levels can damage the nerves in the body, including the sensory nerves.
Chemotherapy: Some chemotherapy drugs can cause nerve damage, leading to sensory neuropathy.
Medications: Certain medications, such as those used to treat HIV or seizures, can cause nerve damage.
Alcoholism: Long-term alcohol abuse can damage the nerves in the body, leading to sensory neuropathy.
