Neuropathic pain is a number of disorders that appear when the nerves of the part of the nervous system outside the brain and spinal cord are impaired. It typically causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. Baton Rouge neuropathic pain patients may find that it results from injury, infections, metabolic disorders such as diabetes, and toxin exposure. Neuropathy may cause muscle movement due to nerve damage and also irritate nerves that affect internal organs such as the heart, blood vessels, urinary bladder and intestines. Neuropathic pain can be described as numbness, tingling, or burning. It may affect a single nerve, two or more nerves or result in more generalized pain as in diabetic neuropathy or Guillain-Barre syndrome. Neuropathy commonly affects both legs and feet. Onset may be sudden or gradual with muscle weakness, cramps, or spasm. Sufferers may find difficulty with walking, running, stumbling, and fatigue. Balance may be impaired.
