Peripheral Neuropathy: Symptoms to Watch Out For

For many people, the pain and loss of sensation associated with peripheral neuropathy can be debilitating. For those people, a diagnosis may be easier because they are more likely to see a doctor. But for some, the symptoms may be just mild or infrequent enough that they are treated with over-the-counter painkillers and largely ignored - not because they aren't painful, but because they aren't specific or frequent enough to even attempt to define them to a doctor. In fact, those people may not even realize they are suffering from a real condition with a real name: peripheral neuropathy.

Could I Have Peripheral Neuropathy?

So, how can you tell if you have peripheral neuropathy? Well, you'll need a medical diagnosis to confirm the condition, but if you have any of the following symptoms you should be seen by a doctor whether you think they're serious or not:

  • an unexplained sensation of "pins and needles" in your hands and feet (for example, you haven't been sitting on your foot or sleeping or sitting in a position that would cause pins and needles)
  • unexplained numbness or loss of feeling in the hands or feet
  • pain or difficulty walking
  • cramping in the arms and legs
  • sharp pains or burning pains that shoot up your legs and arms


While you may think these pains are just a nuisance and nothing to worry about, they could be warning signs of a peripheral neuropathy. And while that's probably not what you wanted to hear, there's good news: There are treatment options available!

So, what is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is just a fancy name for nerve damage of the hands, feet, arms and legs. Of course, it's more complicated than that, but once you understand why you're experiencing the pain you can begin to seek help treating it.

So, Now What?

If your doctor diagnoses you with peripheral neuropathy, you may think that the medications prescribed to ease the symptoms of this condition are the last stop on your road to recovery; however, that's not necessarily true. There are more effective and often less harmful ways to treat peripheral neuropathy. Many of the prescription medications prescribed to ease the symptoms of neuropathy come with a high risk of side effects. Everything from loss of balance to nausea, tremors, headaches and constipation can occur with these medicines. But there are more natural, less invasive ways to not just alleviate the symptoms of neuropathy, but also to help heal them.

How Restore Wellness Can Help

Restore Wellness has used our Restore Neuropathy Protocol to treat over 15,000 patients with peripheral neuropathy in our Scottsdale, Arizona, clinic. We use a combination of cutting-edge, holistic methods like light therapy, electronic therapy and even autologous stem cell therapy. All of our treatments can be done without pharmaceuticals that could cause painful side effects and could become habit-forming. In fact, all our procedures are generally well-tolerated, including the stem cell treatment, because it uses your body's own adult stem cells to help reduce nerve pain in several weeks to several months!
