What To Do If You're More or less Left To Deal With Neuropathy On Your Own

Today's short post from (see link below) addresses the problem that many people with neuropathy face at the beginning of their journey with nerve pain. Many doctors are still ill-informed or ill-equipped to both identify and treat neuropathy, despite it being a condition that affects millions. Very often the patient is sent away with the message that they have to learn to live with it; or are put onto the first step of a pain-killer ladder that often brings more problems with side effects, and rarely works efficiently to control the pain. Until this situation improves across the world, patients are going to have to trawl through the options they find on internet themselves - not an ideal situation. The advice in this article, is to accept that no single medication or therapy will be effective in dampening the symptoms but a carefully constructed group of treatments, specifically designed to help you, is necessary to provide the best possible solutions. That the patient himself has to wade through the information to put this together is still shocking but it is possible if you put in the time to investigate all the options and try things out until you achieve the best possible result. If you can involve your doctor in the process, all the better but if not, do the research and read as much as you can and you'll be surprised at what sort of package you can come up with. Neuropathy is a disease that's unique to every patient but there are still many many things that are common to all - keep an open mind.

Choosing Your Neuropathy Treatments Specialist is the Most Important Step Back to Wellness.

The first step to choosing effective neuropathy treatments is the hardest. That’s because it may feel that the path of treatment is entirely up to you.

Unfortunately, many general practitioners, oncologists, and other doctors are just not trained with a specialty background in neuropathy—leaving patients to research on their own to try to understand their treatment options.

This is a confusing process that is made worse by the fact that neuropathy isn’t just a single disease. It’s a condition with many individual factors. Your experience of neuropathy is unique in the context of your entire medical history and specific symptoms.

And that is why there are so-called neuropathy treatments or “cures” out there that just will not work for most people…. because they are a blanket approach to a very individual problem.

When it comes to neuropathy treatments, the most effective path is one that uses multiple effective treatment components in a way that is uniquely tailored to your needs.

For that reason, the first step and the very most important step, before looking at any specific neuropathy treatments for your symptoms, is to find a highly trained neuropathy specialist who will do a thorough assessment in order to create YOUR unique treatment plan.

This plan will probably involve addressing any underlying conditions that aggravate neuropathy, such as diabetes, as well as components of lifestyle and diet changes, appropriate medications, and state of the art therapies like laser light therapy.

Note that medication was not the first item on that neuropathy treatments list. That’s because neuropathy specialists understand that medication is not a cure-all for neuropathy symptoms, and sometimes can actually impair your quality of life due to side effects.

The most important thing you can do for your health today is to talk with a NeuropathyDR® clinician. Click here to find a neuropathy specialist in your area.
