Do You Have  Peripheral Neuropathy?

  • Who Gets It?  People who are obese, have prediabetes or metabolic syndrome, or diabetes. Sometimes it is caused by chemotherapy.
  • What Does It Feel Like?   Your feet or fingers feel like “pins and needles.” The lightest touch on your feet might be painful.  If you get pedicures, you may stop because it is too painful.  You may become unsteady or find walking painful.
  • How Is It Treated?  Sometimes pain-relieving cream is used. Physical therapy might be recommended. However, there is no cure.
  • So What’s a Person to Do? Put your feet up when you sit down. Move them around to keep the blood flowing. Look at your feet carefully every day. Check for injuries or cracked skin. Wear shoes.
