Beside diabetes, trauma and infections, vitamin deficiencies namely B vitamins, including B1, B6 and B12, are particularly important to nerve health. Vitamin E and niacin also are crucial to nerve health. Not having enough of these vitamins in your system may cause peripheral neuropathy. Kidney disease, liver disease, connective tissue disorders, an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and amyloidosis also can cause peripheral neuropathy. Check with your doctor to rule out these conditions.
i am sorry about your pain, however your doctors are right. i am 13 and i have a bulged disc, nerve damage, bone damage, overgrown bone, and all my ligaments are torn. i'm a competitive gymanst and nothing helps all you do is deal with it the best you can. good luck. but i guess you could try.... wearing a full time back brace ( i did that for a while and it helped for a few months) and get pain releiveing shots i haven't got one but many people on my team have.
She is 72 years young. Had colon cancer. The treatments left her with nerve damage. Periphal neuropathy in feet, legs and fingers. Please help.
2009 Painful heavy menses worsen and flares of episodic stuff now includes slight breathing disturbances, upper abdominal tension, and what feels like vagus nerve tension in my neck left side and tachycardia followed immediately with bowel urgency. Went to ER with this onset. But then began believing it was anxiety just added to the other problems or that the other problems were causing me anxiety.
This can happen if you have varicose veins or swollen, corrugated veins due to damage venous valves. Clinical examination and nerve conduction study may be required. There are certain systemic causes, which can affect both the feet like vitamin deficiencies like B6, B12, B1 and niacin need to be assessed as per history of malnutrition and serum levels. This could also indicate thyroid disorders, liver and kidney dysfunction.
Hi there. The various causes of pins and needles in feet could be due to nerve damage and certain personal habits. Posture like crossing of knees or ankles, sitting with your legs folded or one foot under your buttocks may cause pins and needles in leg and feet. Standing up for work, imbalance of calcium, potassium, sodium, peripheral artery disease, damage to spinal cord, diabetes can all cause this paresthesia. Vitamin B1,B6, B12 deficiency, hypothyroidism need to be checked.
Migraine - early am - Was high intensity and used hydrocodone. Migraine - evening - Was one step lower in intensity and used tylenol with codeine Migraine - continued evening - One step lower yet in intensity and chose Advil. Hoping that going to sleep with Advil will help it go away .. hate to use prescription meds unless I have to .. it's always a gamble at this point.

test they clearly said I have Raynaud's as my fingers turn white when I'm anywhere cold - even in a cold room - and my toes have suffered some nerve damage as they have a heightened pain sensitivity when my doctor examined them. Also because I have a decreased tolerance for the cold I favour the heat and I could happily have a shower with the water piping hot without any issues.
I've recently gone through some neurological tests and have permanent nerve damage in my feet, that continues to worsen, due to the lack of treatment for so many years. I'll be on some type of pain med for it, for the rest of my life. All of the B vitamins help with stress; I wouldn't stop taking them, except watch the B6, as it can cause vivid dreams, even to the point of nightmares. I can't take B complex for that reason.
I don't mean to imply that one thing alone causes autonomic dysfunction because my belief is that many things go wrong and it snowballs into it. With the niacin my ratio has changed for the better and I am in the 2nd quadrant now instead of the fourth. My actual high total cholesterol and LDL are still sky high but we are going to discuss ways to lower it at my next visit. I also submitted a question to Dr.
I have also tried lots of drugs neurotics, cymbalta, niacin, vitamins like the Bs and other. At is point not sure who else to talk to or what else to try, so any thoughts would be much appreciated:) Other issues: Migraines This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Undiagnosed-Symptoms/Long-term-foot-and-ankle-pain/show/1958475">Long term foot and ankle pain</a>.
Keep in mind that your brain and body has been abused by the excessive drinking. You need to increase the niacin, B6, B12 and all the other fun B vitamins, alcohol depleted those. If you are a woman, you have to monitor your iron intake. Your body can't absorb the iron without the Vit B & C. You will probably benefit from some OJ with an iron supplement. It takes a long time for the body to recover and start functioning after drinking. Everyone is different as far as recovery.
I was in the courthouse in Grundy a couple of weeks ago and people were talking about Dr. Sutherland and I didn't hear one negative comment.All I heard was what a caring, compassionate doctor he was...how he would take patients who had no money, make house calls, etc. I believe him when he says he let his heart rule and made some bad calls. He was just trying to help. Many doctors in this area won't prescribe any narcotics anymore and refer their patients to pain clinics. Mine won't.

I did read your reply to LivingInHope that you are not diabetic - which is good. You can be glucose intolerant and get nerve damage through that. As your foot goes purple when you do what you do with it, then it is clearly a circulation problem. Problems in the wrist is likely to be carpal tunnel problems. You can wear wrist splints at night to help with this and not use the hand repetitively. Hope you find some relief somewhere. Best wishes.
It's just too risky for me, there is a better than 50% chance that I could wake up in recovery with paralysis from the waist down, as well as nerve damage in the thoratic (?) area. The Docs don't want to do it either, unless it gets to the point where there are more complications from nerve damage. I also need both knees and hips replaced as well, and some ligament grafts on my left leg.
although I can't figure out how that would cause damage to my left face and the rest of my left side...while the nerve damage is on the right?" I'd guess in your complex mystery case, we can abandon Lloyd Morgan's Canon - and say they do not have the same cause. Maybe. "If a simple chest x-ray can generally rule out sarcoidosis (90% of people with the disease have abnormal chest x-rays), I'd be happy to have it done." You might be in the other 10%.
I quit the Astelin antihistamine spray and the Rhinocort spray, because I felt it was making me worse and dizzy-er. I've been taking Bcomplex and Niacin and Vit. C. I run an air cleaner in my bedroom at all times. Went to see a chiropractor. Normally I wouldn't trust one, but he's a friend and has helped my husband with disk problems. He's used some kind of electrical vibrating thing where my neck meets my skull and now my ear's not hurting. (Could be him, could be the Prednisone).
That my ankle (on the foot with the numb toe) has been twisted really bad a couple of times, and that I think maybe this could be nerve damage. Still she goes for the high cholesterol as a first guess. Fast forward for a second – thyroid tests are completely normal. A small amount of info about this PA: she sees my cholesterol test and immediately starts with the fear mongering. She says “this is grave sweetie”. She also says to me, “well this is the problem right here”.
So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity. Or need more info like I do. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http***mb.rxlist.com/rxboard/ultram.pl?noframes;read=3179 not just for breakfast anymore Posted By: mkny Date: Friday, 21 October 2005, at 3:53 a.m.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
I tried her method of relief using vitamins, niacin and more, this was the first relief I got. I now have no pain in neck area and the sides of the head, I do have a dull pain on top of the head, is this nerve damage from the toxins, or will this dull pain go away? This is the 6 day of de-tox and I will take it to 12 - 21 days. Should I continue to use niacin? Should I use the herb Burdock?
Around a third of cases are the start of diabetes, due to nerve damage. Kidney disorders, Liver disease, blood disease, hormone imbalance, growths pressing on nerves, vitamin E, b1, b6, b12 and niacin deficiencies, alcoholism, carpal tunnel, ulnar/peroneal/radial nerve palsy, arm position putting pressure on nerves in neck/spine. If it is in the neck, great, but I think it's best to check for other more serious issues first because the sooner they are addressed the better.
I only go on the weekeneds now with my husband as my neck muscles get so tight that it makes me wheeze and the nerve irritates my vocal cords. Yes, it is a nerve being pinched, compressed or something and it's the creepiest feeling ever. I can't believe I have endured it this long!!! My normally half dead BP is through the roof.....I wonder if months of pain and anxiety could be the reason :)?
Not even her doctors can and they are simply amazed at her recovery. She walks and talks normaly and goes to work everyday. She drives but with me in the car. In my opinion, she has recovered over 90% to date. Search the internet and READ, READ, READ. Take charge. Find a doctor who will listen and help. NEVER GIVE UP! THEY NEED YOUR HELP EVERYDAY.
B vitamins are very effective in helping the body repair nerve damage. could be that you need them. You might want to see a ND about B vitamin injections. You can learn to do this yourself. It is a better way to get them into your system.
This sensation can be caused by nerve damage, diabetes, problems with circulation, and hypothyroidism among others. Check with the doctor and get some blood work done to check these things out.
