Unfortunately, you're not alone.
This has become a huge problem in our society. It is estimated that over 100 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain.
And of this 100 million, approximately one fourth are patients perhaps like yourself who suffer from form of peripheral neuropathy.
A significant number of these are secondary to conditions like diabetes, which often times are lifestyle related.
But regardless, what caused your neuropathy, the bottom line is that good treatment has several things in common.
One of the most important things to understand is that early active intervention in illness; pain or neuropathy producing conditions is critical.
But this is something we are not really good at!
Unfortunately, patients and yes even their doctors tend to blow off mild early symptoms rather than aggressively treating what may be happening underneath to cause a patients symptoms such as tingling numbness burning, loss of sleep et cetera.
This results in serious consequences. The longer a disease process or after effects of an injury tend to linger, the more difficult and expensive if he comes to treat.
It has been known for years by pain specialists, that the single best way to prevent chronic pain is to address acute illnesses or injuries effectively.
We also know when this is not possible, pro active treatment programs emphasizing physical rehabilitation, diligent home care and recovery, are far more effective than drug only therapy.
Like it or not, you can't depend upon anybody doing this for you!
Those patients who do the best are those who seek out the best available care, and implement them into their daily lifestyles.
