Nerve and Circulation Evaluations Q & A

What causes nerve damage?

Neuropathy, or nerve damage, is complex and can stem from a variety of causes, including:

  • Alcoholism
  • Diabetes
  • Lupus
  • Arthritis
  • Certain medications
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Injury
  • Heredity
  • Infections
  • Vitamin deficiency

What are the warning signs of neuropathy?

The warning signs of nerve damage can vary depending on the nerve that’s been impacted. The most common signs and symptoms of nerve damage in your feet include numbness, sensitivity to touch, tingling, pain, and burning.

Are there any risks associated with neuropathy?

Neuropathy often prevents the right signals from being sent to your brain, which might make you unaware of serious pain or extreme temperatures that can cause you harm. Additionally, neuropathy puts you at higher risk of trips and falls as well as emotional and mental health problems that can result from chronic pain.

What are the signs and symptoms of poor circulation?

Having adequate circulation to your feet is very important to keep your tissue healthy and promote healing. Common signs and symptoms of poor circulation include numbness, tingling, dry skin, and swelling in your feet and legs.

Who is at risk of problems with circulation?

Multiple factors can increase your risk of circulation problems, including tobacco use, obesity, poor diet, inactivity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and family history.

How is nerve pain treated?

The doctors at Starrett Podiatry provide safe, effective, and lasting treatment for nerve pain by treating the underlying cause of the problem. Except in extreme cases, they attempt conservative treatments before recommending surgery.

Treatments are focused on healing the underlying problem while alleviating your pain and might include medications, physical therapy, exercise, and surgery.

When should I seek treatment?

The real question is how long do you want to be in pain? The sooner you seek treatment for nerve damage the sooner you can experience relief from your pain. If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, or pins and needles sensation in your feet, you should schedule an appointment with a qualified podiatrist today.
