Pain, Numbness, or Tingling in Your Feet?
Loss of balance?
These are all symptoms of Neuropathy!
Neuropathy can be caused by several different conditions such as diabetes, kidney problems, liver problems, and poor circulation. Neuropathy may also affect people suffering from fibromyalgia, post chemotherapy treatment, nerve entrapments, and chronic pain. As those conditions progress, they can cause a shrinking of the blood vessels in the foot, resulting in pain, numbness, or tingling.
Neuropathy may also cause difficulty walking, climbing stairs, or even sleeping; thereby greatly reducing your quality of life. It's also one of the main causes of ulceration and foot amputations.
