Burning, Painful Feet? You May Have Neuropathy.
By Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists of Milwaukee, WI

Peripheral neuropathy is a term used to describe damage that has occurred in a nerve, or whole group of nerves. It occurs when the nerve cells of the peripheral nervous system (those outside of the brain and spinal cord) are weakened, and stop working. Peripheral neuropathy will usually arise in older individuals, and may be caused by a number of environmental factors and disease states. Neuropathy may be caused by side effects related to many useful medications such as cancer fighting agents (chemo-therapy), certain antibiotics, and other drugs that can treat everything from HIV to epilepsy. Neuropathy can also be idiopathic – having no known cause. Additional causes include a pinched nerve (carpal tunnel), infections such as Lyme disease, hypothyroidism, pernicious anemia (vitamin B12 deficiency), autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, and most commonly – diabetes.

Tingling or burning in the arms and legs may be an early sign of nerve damage. These feelings often start in your toes and feet. You may also have deep pain that often happens in the feet and legs. The symptoms related to neuropathy can also include a loss of sensation in the hands, feet, and legs, as well as burning, or itching pain. People who suffer from neuropathy can also experience cold feet/hands or hot feet. Some feel a full sensation and make statements like; “my feet don’t feel attached,” or “they feel full” or swollen. These symptoms can also be associated with a condition known as Restless Legs Syndrome. The symptoms of neuropathy are often worse at night and can make staying asleep impossible.

The problem for many patients with neuropathic pain is that there is no cure – only treatment. This does not mean that you should give up on seeking treatment. Take control of your health and seek treatment promptly. An integrated treatment approach to neuropathy is usually required for a successful result. The newest treatments and therapies that are being used successfully to reduce nerve damage, limit symptoms, and reduce prolonged use of side-effect heavy medications. Health care providers well versed in neuropathy management employ combinations of medical, surgical, rehabilitative, and physical therapies. These treatments are designed to keep you healthy and pain free, and seek – where possible – to restore function.
