Management Of Neuropathy In The Legs That Hurt Until It Is Difficult To Walk?
, my mother hurt her leg until it was difficult to walk. Already referred to a neurologist at the RSCM to check and said he might get neuropathy. Currently only given drugs while waiting for the EMG test next month. But the medicine given doesn’t work and the pain is getting worse every day and spreads to the hands. Are there any medical procedures that can be taken to relieve the pain?
Hello Kureka, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Neuropathy is a medical term used to describe complaints arising from disorders of the nerves in the body. Nerve disorders can be caused by a variety of conditions such as diabetes, stroke, vitamin B1 deficiency, viral infections, or tumors.
Treatment given to your mother at this time is generally to help reduce pain complaints that are felt only, not to eliminate the main cause. The most appropriate therapy can only be recommended if the main cause has been found, one of them through EMG examination.
If the complaint feels increasingly burdensome, you can bring your mother back to the doctor sooner than you should to consult again about the therapy currently being given. Your mother's doctor will definitely re-evaluate the current treatment, if indeed it requires additional therapy or is replaced with another therapy, the doctor will definitely recommend it based on your mother's current condition.
At this time, try to limit movement in the part of the body that is experiencing complaints, and avoid doing strenuous activities / other activities that if triggering and aggravating complaints. Keep consuming drugs that have been given according to doctor's orders until further therapeutic recommendations from your doctor.
I hope this helps.
