Peripheral Neuropathy Drugs For 51 Years Old?
Good evening .. What peripheral neuropathy medicine is … Because I just read the symptoms in Hello doctor according to what the contents conveyed with the symptoms felt by my parents. My parents are 51 years old. Greetings healthy .. Please the info ..
Thank you for the question.
Peripheral nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) can be a variety of possible causes, among autoimmune disorders, diabetes, infections, genetic disorders, tumors, spinal cord disorders, as well as liver, kidney, connective tissue, and thyroid gland disorders. Clinically, sufferers of peripheral neuropathy can experience a variety of symptoms, including:
Sensory disorders, such as the appearance of pain, tingling, numbness, heat, sore, itching, vibrating
Motor disorders, such as muscle weakness or paralysis, impaired balance and coordination
Autonomic disorders, such as difficulty controlling bowel movements, palpitations, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, abnormal blood pressure, and so on
The diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy is ideally made directly by the doctor. Because, there are also many other conditions whose symptoms are similar to peripheral neuropathy, including stroke, meningitis, brain tumors, head injuries, and so on. Disturbances in other organ systems (besides the nervous system) can sometimes also raise similar complaints. In addition, treatment for peripheral neuropathy can vary depending on the cause.
Therefore, it is better not to draw conclusions too early, because you do not explain exactly what kind of complaints your parents are experiencing, so we cannot be certain of the cause.
Our advice, if the complaints that your parents experience are mild, you should first overcome at home, by letting him get plenty of rest, accompany him to exercise every day, eat a variety of foods that are nutritious and healthy for nerves (such as those containing vitamin B complex, calcium, potassium and magnesium), don't smoke, don't stress excessively, maintain ideal body weight, and don't take drugs carelessly without doctor's advice.
Conversely, if the complaints that your parents experience seem quite severe and do not improve with the steps above, you can take him to see a doctor or a neurologist so that he is given the right treatment huh ..
I hope this helps.
