- Tingling or crawling sensations in the feet or legs
- Leg or foot pain which can be sharp or jabbing
- Loss of coordination which may lead to falling
- Sensitive to touch
- Sometimes muscles can weaken
What Causes Neuropathy?
Often the cause is unknown. When the cause is unknown, it is called “idiopathic.” There are some known causes such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders such as MS. It can even be caused by medication. Another possible cause is B vitamin deficiency. It can be very frustrating to suffer and not know the cause or what might help. In some cases, neuropathy pain cannot be helped. Sometimes the best option is to work to keep it from getting worse. There are however, some types that respond to therapy.
