What is diabetic neuropathy?

If diabetes is not controlled well with diet, exercise and medications, a complication called diabetic neuropathy may occur. The long-term effects of high blood sugar damages the nerves in the hands and feet, causing tingling sensations, or even loss of sensation in the hands and feet. In addition, any sense of balance and pain is lost in the feet, raising the risk of pressure ulcers forming, leading to diabetic foot ulcers. This condition is largely irreversible and can lead to other complications, such as falls, unsteady gait, and osteomyelitis from the foot ulcers.

What is the risk of killing a nerve of a tooth that is causing you pain?

I assume you are talking about going to a dentist and having a root canal therapy performed on the tooth. This procedure removes the nerve and blood supply of the tooth. The interior of the tooth is then filled with an inert rubber material called gutta percha.

The most common risks associated with a root canal are pain during the procedure that is usually effectively controlled with local anesthetics; pain after the procedure as the healing process begins, usually managed with OTC or prescription pain medication and antibiotics; failure of the root canal therapy, which may require either a second procedure or a surgical procedure called an apicoectomy and retrofill or extraction of the tooth.

Assuming that the root canal therapy is successful, most teeth will soon require a crown restoration because the tooth will tend to become brittle and fracture. Having a crown placed prior to the fracture is highly recommended. Sometimes a root canal tooth will turn dark from the inside out. This will become a cosmetic concern if it is a front tooth visible when you smile or talk.

Most root canal teeth can last many years, often a lifetime. However, sometimes root canal teeth will fail many years later for no apparent reason. Depending on the specific situation, the root canal may be repeated.

For the best information, you should seek out a quality dentist and discuss the risks, benefits, and alternatives with him/her.

If you chipped your tooth and a small part of your nerve was showing how possible is it that the nerve will die?

Without a root canal the chances are slim to none. You are in for some serious pain.

Make a dental appointment. Or if money is an issue, contact a dental school to see if you can get low-cost or no-cost treatment.

i agree, go to the dentist now, if the pain starts (and trust me when it does it will be at 2am Saturday on a holiday weekend) nothing will help it, it is the most unbearable pain ever, go get a root canal, or depending on the damage they may just be able to direct pulp cap it...good luck and godspeed

What does leg neuropathy feel like?

My neuropathy from botched amputation feels like hell. My stumps go from freezing cold to pins and needles. What I mean is getting poked by pins and needles. The pain is beyond unbearable. The way I deal with 24 hrs. a day chronic pain is trying to keep my mind copied with things. Music at times is my savior. If you have a similar story write me @ platman8@yahoo.com .

Can diabetic neuropathy cause loss of bowel control?

Hi,

I have been researching this very subject for days now as I have type 2 diabetes and now over the past 6-8 months have developed a fairly horrible loss of bowel control.

Diabetic Neuropathy can definitely affect the feet, legs, hands and arms but there is also another type of neuropathy that also affects the groin, abdomen, stomach, bowel area and can disrupt normal bowel function.

So my answer is yes. i believe so, after researching it online.

cheers,

J

When diagnosed with 3c 4c 5c 6c bulging discs with severe head pain and pain in your neck radiating into shoulders left arm and tingling in your fingers what all can be done is there a pinched nerve?

If the disks are herniated (bulging is another term) the specific nerves causing your problems ARE being pinched/compressed by the disks - that's what happens when you herniate a disk. The diagnosis you describe is disk herniations between the C3/C4/C5/C6 vertebrae. I've had flattened disks between C5/6/7, with a resulting fusion operation to correct it as well. In my case I had no choice as my left arm was becoming paralyzed. I've also had 2 other major spinal surgeries.

You should already have received some kind of treatment plan, likely Flexeril, and anti-inflammatory and / or a strong painkiller like Percocet or Vicodin. It's important that you DO NOT LIFT anything over a couple of pounds. I'm guessing that this happened as either a whiplash injury or something similar.

If the problem is already causing tingling and numbness in your fingers you need to report that immediately to your doctor. If you're not already seeing a Neurosurgeon, you should be. Orthopedists are useless in spine and disk problems as they understand the bone aspects, but not the neurological complexities. A general doctor just doesn't have the expertise required to treat this.

The reason you need to report it is that if you're having tingling/numbness in your fingers (especially if it's creeping its way from the tips to the knuckles) the disk inflammation isn't getting any better and the pressure is enough that it's starting to cut off the nerve impulses to your hand. Unless you get it looked at and treated, you could wind up with long term nerve damage or worse. I've already faced this and been through it, aside from dealing with these problems myself for over 20 years. In my case, within 2 weeks of the initial pain my left arm was almost paralyzed, and my fingers were numb from the fingertips to the first knuckle. The fusion I had included a bone graft from my right pelvic area as well as a plate. It is not something to take lightly. If your doctor is not treating it as a serious issue, you need to get another one fast. I cannot stress the importance of getting the disk pressure relieved off of the nerve in question, likely the C5/C6 disk.

Also, do not do any activity requiring any lifting, arm strength, etc., and don't drive if you can avoid it. If you're not taking any anti-inflammatory drugs (which I'd be shocked if you weren't) you need to start. Message me and let me know what meds they have you on so far.

I had this category started because this is the one area in my life in which I've dealt with for many years, and I've survived bad doctors, diagnoses, hospital mistakes, pain on scales you can't imagine (even now), and continuing spinal damage and severe pain. Hopefully I can help you and others avoid the bad things that I've been through. if you have specific questions don't hesitate to PM me.

2 sites you need to look at:

American Pain Foundation - http://tinyurl.com/8thkgm

Spine Universe - http://tinyurl.com/ysxy5l

If you eventually require surgery, let me know as there are certain decisions you'll face where the wrong choice can have consequences down the road.

I hope this helps if someone told you all those disc were bulging you must have had a mri? I just went threw the same thing c5 c6 had a pinch nerve and they did therapy did another mri showed nerve wasnt pinch anymore anyway to make along story short have a Dr do a milogram and catscan this shows all around the disk.

Is a root canal necessary if a dentist takes an x-rays discovers a swollen nerve and spot but the patient has absolutely no pain?

Find you another dentist; have that one transfer your records over to him/her from your old dentist. Then have the new dentist check your mouth out. This would be a second opinion. If it turns out the same way, then go back to your old dentist, or if not, then keep the new one. Some of these, just like doctors can't be trusted- they try to make a buck anywhere they turn.

Hi guys...so worried about d tingling sensation in hands n sometimes in legs while sleepin o after gettin up frm sleep??

Doc prescribed me a tab REJUNEX(methylcobalamin-0.5mg,Alpha Lipoic Acid-100mg) for a period of three months.

Are there any nerves in your nose that can paralyze your face?

The nerves that controls your facial movements exits the skull from behind, below, and deep to your ears and come toward the middle from both sides to converge upon the nose. BEFORE the nerve leaves the skull, a branch of the nerve crosses below the brain across the skull base to enter the nasal cavity. This branch, however, has nothing to do with facial motion rather it helps control the mucous glands in the nasal cavity and palate. Most problems with facial paralysis result from 1) stroke 2) ear pathology (infections, tumors, etc) and 3) parotid gland (in front of the ears) pathology which damage the origin of the nerve in the brain or the nerve itself.

What would cause lower back pain and abdominal pain?

== == Well, unless you're dead after writing the question, it's not an aneurysm.

A disk herniation at L4/5 can cause radiating pain both in the anterior and posterior (front and back) parts of the body. What it feels like is dull pain in the abdomen and groin area, with sharp pain in the lower back.

----

== == Most likely is musculao-skeletal pain, BUT... If you're in middle-late group long-time smoker, it could be an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Otherwiase known as a dilation of the aorta in the mid-abdominal region... If this sounds like you, get to a doctor for evaluation ASAP...!!! He can do a CT or MRI [if physical exam suggests one of these...]

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.

Is there a cure for sciatia nerve pain?

My girl friend had sciatia nerve pain. Her coping mechanism was to roll her back so the sciatic vertebrae was pushed into the ground.

She cured it by attaining a more stable sense of being. Nerve pain which does not have a physical cause (ie something a medical practitioner should tell you...best person to see would be a sports massage therapist) will generally be a sign of some form of imbalance with the associated areas of the body.

Just to be clear, sciatia is the collection that includes nerve pain. You want to cure sciatia. The nerve pain can be cured with lots of tissue salts, pain killers and the like. You can not per say cure a symptom. Its a kin to having a rash, treating the rash but not the cause.
