Some people will feel unfamiliar with the term of this disease. People more familiar with vertigo than neuropathy.
Vertigo is a feeling as if the patient moves or rotates. Or as if the objects around the patient is moving or spinning, usually accompanied by nausea and loss of balance. This disease can take a few moments or a few hours or even days. Patients often feel better when lying down. But the disease can continue even if the patient does not move at all.
The cause of this disease because of abnormalities in the ear, the nerve that connects the ear to the brain and also in the brain itself. In addition, the vertigo is also associated with abnormalities of vision or change in blood pressure that occurs suddenly.
While neuropathy is a disease caused by nerve damage that creates pain in the nerves of the patient. When the nerve is damaged from disease, chemical toxins, trauma, then the myelin sheath is damaged. This creates a short circuit is similar to occur when the wire insulation cover loss. Damage can lead to symptoms of other diseases worse.
The symptoms caused by nerve damage include increased blood pressure, abnormal heart rate, reduced ability to sweat, dysfunction, constipation, bladder, and sexual dysfunction. Selaini, patients also feel tingling, freezing, or burning sensation in hands and feet. Many patients feel more cold sensation even when temperatures outside reach 80 degrees Celsius.
Neuropathy patients will experience this sensation during the rest of his life. It is difficult to cure the disease. Even though there are bidders, it will only help reduce the pain caused. However, if the disease is diagnosed early it will be controlled in slowing its development.
This disease can occur because of alcohol. Some researchers believe that excessive alcohol consumption, can contribute directly to nerve damage. Usually the condition is called neuropathy alcoholic. In addition, amyloidosis, namely the disruption of a protein called amyloid is deposited in tissues and organs. Amyloidosis can affect peripheral sensory, motor or autonomic nerves, and amyloid deposition of lead in neuronal degeneration and dysfunction.
For further is anemia. Iron deficiency can affect nerve conduction. Lack of vitamin B12 will make the damaged myelin sheath that surrounds and protects nerves. Without this protection, the nerves stop functioning properly and conditions such as peripheral neuropathy can occur.
