Disability Insurance Attorneys for Peripheral Neuropathy Claims
Helping Clients With Peripheral Neuropathy Across the U.S.
The peripheral nervous system is a vast communication network that sends signals from your brain and spinal cord to all other parts of your body. When this system is damaged, you can face problems with everything from movement to digestion to your immune system. Peripheral neuropathy refers to a collection of conditions that involve damage to the peripheral nervous system. Depending on the nerves that are damaged, symptoms can range from mild to disabling.
Motor nerve damage, for example, causes muscle weakness and painful cramps, and sensory nerve damage can affect balance, coordination, and feeling. Some people with sensory nerve damage even experience severe pain from light touches that are normally painless, such as bedsheets on their bodies. While less visible, autonomic nerve damagecan cause problems with blood pressure, temperature regulation, and gastrointestinal symptoms. In rare cases, autonomic nerve damage can affect eating and swallowing.
If you need time to focus on your health, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you recover the benefits you need from insurance companies.
What Does Peripheral Neuropathy Feel Like?
Peripheral neuropathy is sometimes linked to other conditions, like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. Most people describe peripheral neuropathy as feelings of “pins and needles,” weakness, throbbing pain, and “sharp, lightening-like pain.” In the United States, 25 to 30% of people experience peripheral neuropathy at some point in their lives. Sometimes, the disease has an underlying cause and is curable, but other peripheral neuropathies cannot be cured.
Most treatments help patients manage pain. Nevertheless, medications like antidepressants can have adverse side effects. Each type of peripheral neuropathy also develops differently, so you may be fine one day and start deteriorating the next.
If your condition is interfering with your ability to work, you may need time to focus on your health. Some cases of peripheral neuropathy continue to get worse, so you may have to stop working entirely.
