What is axonal sensorimotor peripheral polyneuropathy and how is it treated?

What is axonal sensorimotor peripheral polyneuropathy and how is it treated?

Generic: A variety of nerve pathology. Etiologies include alcohol/nutritional, diabetes, solvent or chemical exposure, porphyria, amyloid, causations. Since this is a unique category, should be relatively easy to pin down and design a specific therapy. Medical foods, metanx, could improve a small fibre component, and Lyrica (pregabalin) or Cymbalta could help symptoms.

See DDS first: See a dentist or oral surgeon to evaluate your symptoms and they will take a panoramic radiograph (x-ray) or 3d ct scan to determine if your problem is of dental origin (a large abscess or infected tooth could put pressure on you jaw nerve causing a numb feeling.

Can herniate disc cause chin/ lip tingling? Have shoulder blade tendonitis & tear, tingling hands and ostheoarthritis. Emg said axonal polyneuropathy.

Not due to disc: Get further information about your peripheral neuropathy issues. The chin and lip symptoms are in the distribution of the trigeminal nerve and involve brainstem, facial mechanisms, not "discs"! you might have a dental issue affecting the mental nerve branch. Need to uncover causation here. Many such problems respond well to treatment.

Tingling hands so diagnx with axonal polyneuropathy and tendontis/carpel tunnel. What causes these? Now I have tingling chin and lips. Is this serious

Can be serious: Polyneuropathy can have many causes. Most common cause if probably diabetes. Carpal tunnel compression of the median nerve at the wrist can occur independently from the neuropathy. You can try treating the carpal tunnel with a wrist splint. This may help the hands, but if other areas are starting to feel numb, let your doctor know.

What is chronic inflammatory demyelating polyneuropathy and how is it treated?

What is chronic inflammatory demyelating polyneuropathy and how is it treated?

Immune process: Condition where the body's immune system attacks the coverings of the peripheral nerves (myelin), and causes diffuse weakness in arms and legs, and facial muscles on a chronic basis. Although steroids may be useful, better approach is chronic intravenous Immune Globulin every 3-4 weeks, or even plasmapheresis. The process can be fully reversed in many cases.

Polyneuropathy and no loss of reflexes at this time?

I could explain: Polyneuropathy usually effect the sensory part of the nerve which dose not effect reflex testing, but if went for long time it will effect the reflexes because the effect on the motor part of the nerve.

What sort of problem is acute inflammatory polyneuropathy?

AIDP: "acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (aidp) is an autoimmune process that is characterized by progressive areflexic weakness and mild sensory changes. Sensory symptoms often precede motor weakness. About 20% of patients end up with respiratory failure." for more see: http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/1169959-overview.

What are the symptoms of acute inflammatory polyneuropathy?

What are the symptoms of acute inflammatory polyneuropathy?

CIDP: This is an immune disorder of the peripheral nervous system, and involves an attack of the myelin coverings of mainly the motor nerves, but can be seen occasionally affecting sensory fibers also. Cidp can be controlled with steroids or ivig, but relapses can occur, and lifelong treatment is often required. Weakness in arms, legs, and face, most common.

How can one deal with polyneuropathy and piriformis syndrome?

How can one deal with polyneuropathy and piriformis syndrome?

Double Crush: Definitely treat the piriformis with pelvic re-balancing, stretches or myofascial release therapy, because if the piriformis is compressing the sciatic nerve that's already injured it could significantly compound the problem.
