Neuropathy

Neuropathy refers to a family of disorders that cause damage to nerves at any location in the body. It is often classified by the type or location of the nerves being affected, as in peripheral neuropathy which affects the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord or according to the disease that is causing it, as in diabetic neuropathy. 

Peripheral neuropathy affects the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves are located in extremities - the toes, feet, legs, fingers, hands and arms. The term proximal neuropathy refers to nerve damage that specifically causes pain in the shoulders, thighs, hips or buttocks.

Diabetic neuropathies are a family of nerve disorders caused by diabetes. People with diabetes can develop nerve damage in every organ system including the digestive system, urinary tract, sex organs, blood vessels and heart.

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a disabling side effect of cancer treatment where distant nerves located away from the brain and spinal cord are damaged. These distant nerves are called pheripheral nerves and carry sensations to the brain that control the movement of our arms and legs as well as the bladder and bowel.

Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy usually occurs in people over 60 and progresses slowly and can be very disruptive to a person’s normal life and lifestyle. Doctors call this disorder “idiopathic” which means unknown cause.

Cranial neuropathy occurs when any of the twelve cranial nerves (nerves that exit from the brain directly) are damaged. Two specific types of cranial neuropathy are optic neuropathy and auditory neuropathy. Optic neuropathy refers to damage or disease of the optic nerve that transmits visual signals from the retina of the eye to the brain. Auditory neuropathy involves the nerve that carries signals from the inner ear to the brain and is responsible for hearing.

Autonomic neuropathy is damage to the nerves of the involuntary nervous system. These nerves control the heart and circulation including blood pressure, digestion, bowel and bladder function, the sexual response and perspiration.
