When to See a Neurologist
Peripheral neuropathy causes severe pain and can affect your quality of life. Symptoms include:
- Tingling or numbness in one or both hands/feet
- Curling of toes/fingers
- Cramping in the hands/feet
- Shooting pain or a sharp burning sensation in one or both hands/feet
- Extreme weakness, sometimes to the extent of loss of power, in the affected area
- Loss of control in the affected area
Understanding the Peripheral Nerve Decompression Process
The symptoms arise when a neuroma gets compressed or entrapped due to several conditions including diabetes, thyroid issues, injury, radiation, or nutritional deficiencies. The compression of one or more nerve fibers often occurs when a nerve passes through “tunnels” in the body. On being entrapped in a tunnel, the nerve doesn’t receive sufficient nutrition from the blood flow. Pain and other uncomfortable sensations surface as the body tries to signal a disorder. In the absence of timely treatment, nerve fibers may die, resulting in a complete loss of any sensation.
Finding Help at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute
Our experts use minimally invasive procedures to treat nerve disorders and alleviate the pain caused by peripheral neuropathy. The pain-management specialist will discuss the symptoms you’re experiencing and conduct preliminary tests to see if you qualify for the process.
Peripheral nerve decompression surgery removes the tissues disturbing the nerve. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. Your neurologist will make a tiny incision in the affected area to effectively decompress the compressed nerves and relieve pain. After surgery, you may need to stay in bed for an hour or two. Your doctor will check your vital signs and give you discharge instructions, after which you can head home, pain free.
