Tingling or numbness affecting your feet may seem like a trivial symptom of no real importance. However, in this tutorial, I will explain why this symptom may be very important with regard to your health in general and why you should not ignore it. Tingling hands, feet, or hands and feet is an extremely common and bothersome symptom. Such tingling can sometimes be entirely innocent and temporary. For example, it could result from pressure on nerves when your arm is bent under your head as you fall asleep. Or it.
Could be from pressure on nerves when you cross your legs for too long. in either case, the pins and needles effect which is usually painless is soon relieved by removing the pressure that caused it. In many cases, however, tingling in the hands, feet can be severe, occurring at irregular times or continuously day and night. It also can accompany other symptoms. such as pain,itching, numbness, and muscle wasting. In such cases, tingling may be a sign ofnerve damage.
Suchnerve damageis known by s asperipheral neuropathybecause it affects nerves distant from thebrainand spinal cord, often in the hands and feet. There are more than 100 different types of peripheral neuropathy. Over time, peripheral neuropathy can worsen, resulting in decreased mobility and even disability. In fact, diabetesis the number one cause of peripheral neuropathy, accounting for well over a third of cases. Indiabetic neuropathy, tingling and other symptoms often first develop.
In both feet and go up the legs, followed by tingling and other symptoms that affect both hands and go up the arms. About twothirds of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms ofnerve damage. In many cases, these symptoms are the firstsigns of diabetes. So here is the main point I want to make, tingling and numbness in the feet may be the first signs that you have a serious peripheral neuropathy and that you may have diabetes. Diabetes puts you at risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and a long.
List of other serious complications. so that tingling you have could be your only warning sign of a serious complication developing elsewhere in your body. Dont ignore this symptom and please get a check up. Well I hope you have found this tutorial interesting.

Treating Neuropathy and Nerve Pain in the Feet
Let me start with im a diabetic. i developed neuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but its over a period of time. It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walking on glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldnt sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because hes just a great physician. I wouldnt think twice, Id recommend him to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I cant say enough about Bullard. Hes just a great physician and I dont know.
If theres anything he couldnt do he could probably move mountains if he wanted to! Glen, probably one of the biggest questions people are asking you is whatd we do, whats happened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tingling and the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here, which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose around it. What we did is we went in and loosened.
The noose, and that allows that nerve to begin to function and work like its supposed to. Now, the sensation is coming back, its something thats going to take time but I can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. Theres no other physician that I would recommend. Glen, in the next couple weeks, what were going to do is make sure that the swelling is improving, hopefully begin to transition.
