Neuropathy Treatment in Dubai


Nerve damage might be causing everything from low blood pressure to gastrointestinal distress without your knowing it.

Doctors have long known peripheral neuropathy as a nerve condition that causes reduced sensation, tingling, weakness, or pain in the feet and hands. But those symptoms may be just the tip of the iceberg. Doctors are now learning that neuropathy can cause many more problems.

Nerve breakdown

You may experience damage to only one nerve or area of nerves, which is known as mononeuropathy. That may occur with surgery or injury to a specific area.

Widespread damage to nerves throughout the body, called polyneuropathy, is more common. Various medical conditions can cause the farthest parts of nerve fibers to break down. Common cause of neuropathy include diabetes as well as side effects from medications, such as cancer chemotherapies and several other drugs, including excess doses of vitamin B6.Cancer itself will have manifest neuropathy of some kind at any stage from start to the end.

Rare causes include autoimmune disease, exposure to heavy metals or pesticides, or infectious disease.

Symptoms

Symptoms depend on which type of nerve fiber is attacked. Neuropathy affecting large fibers lessens strength and muscle bulk and sometimes causes muscle twitching or reduced sensation for touch and vibration.

What about small fibers? Physicians are only now learning the wide range of symptoms that small-fiber polyneuropathy can cause. Sensory symptoms include everything from severe burning pain to chronic itch. For example, neuropathy of the autonomic nerves to the heart or blood vessels can cause low blood pressure, perceived as chronic fatigue and faintness or dizziness. Damage to nerve fibers serving the gastrointestinal tract may cause bloating, nausea, digestion problems, constipation, or diarrhea; these are often labeled as irritable bowel syndrome. Autonomic neuropathy often affects the bladder and sexual function.

As a result of these vague symptoms, most small-fiber neuropathy remains unrecognized or misdiagnosed. Small-fiber neuropathy underlies at least 40% of cases of fibromyalgia in adults and adolescents.

Diagnosis and treatment

Leaving neuropathy undiagnosed and untreated is a gamble. If the damage continues, symptoms can worsen and become irreparable.

Instead, I urge that you talk to your primary care doctor about the tests used to diagnose neuropathies, such as nerve conduction and electromyography tests that measure nerve fiber damage. Consult a neurologist and obtain a clarity, whether neuropathy is or is not the cause of your syndrome and symptoms .If there is a diagnosis, standard blood tests may be able to identify a treatable cause .Neuropathy treatment in Dubai should be carried out by a neurologist.

Once you treat the underlying cause, does the neuropathy go away? Yes, if you treat it early and your nerve fibers are otherwise healthy. The peripheral nerves keep growing throughout life. Just like broken bones, nerves will heal and regrow if you can remove the source of injury and protect them while they heal. The neuropathic pain or burning sensation are symptoms of ongoing irritability and synchronous, continuous damage to the nerves. If we treat these symptoms,we provide the healing power of nature to come to the fore. Neuropathy treatment in Dubai is hindered by misdiagnosis by doctors and difficult availability of medications like Gabapentin ,Pregabalin, and Duloxetine.

Recommendations include getting daily aerobic activity to improve circulation to the nerves, wearing compression stockings if your blood pressure is low, avoiding toxic medications and heavy drinking, eating a healthy diet, and not smoking. Neuropathy can often be improved, occasionally cured, and quality of life can be improved for most.
