Neuropathic Pain Q & A
What is neuropathic pain like?

Neuropathic pain can vary considerably from one patient to another. Your nerve pain may be overwhelming to the point of incapacitation sometimes, while being only moderately troublesome at other times. 

If neuropathy is the source of your pain, there are usually some other neuropathy symptoms, including:

  • Shooting pains in the feet

  • Numbness in the feet and hands

  • Burning sensation in the feet

  • Muscle weakness in and around the feet and hands

  • Balance issues

 

When you suffer from neuropathy, you'll likely experience multiple symptoms at once. While pain may be the biggest concern, all of the symptoms can come together to be nearly overwhelming if you don’t reach out for help.

If you suffer from diabetes or if you’re undergoing chemotherapy, your risk for neuropathy is elevated and you need to watch closely for signs of this kind of pain. However, neuropathy pain can potentially occur in anyone, so be sure to see your doctor if you notice the kind of symptoms listed above.

Will neuropathic pain go away on its own?

Neuropathy pain may diminish somewhat naturally over time, but it won't go away completely on its own. If you try to ignore neuropathy pain, it's likely that you'll experience permanent nerve damage.
