Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) is the term used to describe disorders of the peripheral nerves. Even though 10 to 20 million people in the US suffer with PN, information is not easy find. Approximately 50% of diabetics will develop the condition. Many people using statin pills: 'cholesterol drugs', will be affected by this mysterious malady.
Neuropathy means "disease or abnormality of the nervous system", which is not a very helpful definition. We think of Neuropathy as any damage to the nervous system. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Herniated Discs and Strokes are all insults to different areas of the nervous system, all with different symptoms. Diabetes is a systematic disease that affects all the nerves of the body from the brain, eyes and small nerves of the heart and digestive system, to the nerves in the hands, feet and legs.
The Peripheral nervous system is made up of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord to all parts of the body. Peripheral nerve cells have three main parts: cell body, axons and dendrites (nerve/muscle junctions).
Any part of the nerve can be affected, but damage to axons is most common. The axon transmits signals from nerve cell to nerve cell or muscle. Most axons are surrounded by a substance called myelin, which facilitates nerve signal transmission.
There are two types of symptoms with peripheral neuropathy- negative and positive. Negative signs, which come first, are when damage to the nervous system brings about LOSS of a particular function. For example: loss of reflexes, loss of strength, loss of sensation - numbness. But these are rarely detectable to the patient, because the brain makes up the difference in these losses.
In less severe cases, patients "only" suffer with- numbness, tingling & "pin pricks". Over time, these can turn into deep, stabbing & burning pains. Many of these debilitating symptoms get worse at night, preventing PN patients from ever getting a good night's sleep. In it's advanced stages, Peripheral Neuropathy has been known to cause patients to lose the ability to walk at all!
