What is Neuropathy and Why Your Mom Needs Help

Do you remember the time when your mom could run around the house effortlessly, cook delicious meals, and dance the night away? As we age, our bodies change, and sometimes, those changes aren't for the better. One such condition that affects many individuals is neuropathy.


Understanding Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a nerve disorder that affects the peripheral nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. These nerves play a crucial role in transmitting signals to and from the central nervous system, allowing us to feel sensations and control muscle movements. When the peripheral nerves are damaged, misfiring signals can lead to a range of uncomfortable and often painful symptoms.


The Symptoms Your Mom Might Experience:

Tingling or Burning Sensation: Your mom may complain of tingling, burning, or prickling sensations in her feet and hands, which can be persistent and distressing.

Numbness: She might feel a loss of sensation in her extremities, making it challenging to detect hot or cold temperatures or even injuries.


Sharp or Stabbing Pain: Neuropathy can cause sharp or stabbing pains that come and go, affecting her daily activities and sleep.

Muscle Weakness: Weakness in the affected areas may lead to unsteadiness while walking or difficulty gripping objects.

Sensitivity to Touch: Even a light touch could cause extreme discomfort, making it challenging for her to wear shoes or jewelry.

Balance Issues: Neuropathy can affect her balance and coordination, increasing the risk of falls.

Digestive Problems: She might experience digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea, or bloating.

Sleep Disturbances: The discomfort can disrupt her sleep patterns, leading to fatigue and irritability.
