What Causes Nerve Damage and What to Do if You Have It
While you may have learned about the five senses at a very early age, you may not have learned that our senses are received and understood thanks to our nerves. Your nerves play a critical role in sending messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. When these nerves become damaged, it impacts your brain’s ability to communicate with muscles and organs. This is a condition known as neuropathy and it can have a significant impact on your ability to move and complete tasks.

What causes nerve damage or neuropathy?

Nerve damage can occur in numerous situations. Some of the most common causes are:

  • Medical conditions including diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Injuries including falls, compressions, or severe cuts
  • Autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjorgen’s syndrome
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Tumors
  • Toxin exposure including chemotherapy and radiation
