Progression of Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a progressive condition. In the early stages, the patient will begin to experience mild symptoms of neuropathy.
As the condition progresses, many patients begin to feel pain, along with burning, tingling, numbness, and difficulty sleeping.
In the latter stage, patient's feet (and/or hands) usually have very little sensation and are very week. Patients in this stage often have difficulty walking or even standing. As the nerves die, the risk of amputation increases.
During the early and moderate stages, the underlying nerves are alive and there is a lot that can be done to help the health of those nerves and improve the patient's qualify of life.
