How does the shape of a nerve cell help it do its job?

The nerve cell's thin and dainty shape helps it transmit signals. Also, the "fingers" at the ends help transmit the messages to more than one other nerve cell so the message can reach either the brain or the spinal cord faster. The thin shape also helps keep the message on a straight path and keeps the message from getting confused or mixed up with other messages being transmitted so as to insure the direct and immediate receiving of all the messages.

Nerve cells are relatively simple looking structures which are responsible for some of the most important bodily processes we have. They are responsible for our sense of touch, and make up our brain to make us think.

Is neuropathy reversible?

I have what is called Peripheral Neuropathy.....but I do fall under the typical causes of Peripheral Neuropathy. What I have is Idiopathic Neuropathy, (In some cases, however, even with extensive evaluation, the cause of a person's Peripheral Neuropathy remains unknown - this is called Idiopathic Neuropathy).

I was told by my Neurologist that by the time you feel the symptoms the damage is already done and there is no regeneration of the nerves. So it comes down to either deal with it or take some medication. I finally gave in and l am on Gabapentin, What A Difference! Just remember each and every case is different.
