Peripheral neuropathy symptoms are a result of damaged nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves). Your peripheral nerves communicate from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. The peripheral nerves also send sensory information to the rest of your body.
Diabetic neuropathy is simply when your blood sugar is too high and it causes damage to nerves throughout your body, mostly your legs and feet. Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from pain and numbness to problems with your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels, and your heart.
Autonomic neuropathy is when nerves that control involuntary bodily functions are damaged. The damage could affect blood pressure, digestion, bladder control, and temperature control. Diabetes is the most common cause of autonomic neuropathy; however, other health conditions can also cause it.
There are multiple ways that symptoms related to neuropathy can develop. Neuropathy can be caused by but are not limited to:
- Chemical Exposure (Chemotherapy)
- Traumatic Injury
- Vitamin Deficiencies
- Chronic Diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, or Lupus
