As a massage therapist I get many who sleep upon their hands and arms who also have neuropathy. None of their doctors have asked them about it, why?

As a massage therapist I get many who sleep upon their hands and arms who also have neuropathy. None of their doctors have asked them about it, why?

It can happen: Certainly one can get transient paresthesia from such an action but frank neuropathy would seem odd. When you sleep on your hand you are causing a decreased blood flow to the area. In an extreme case this can cause damage and possible neuropathy. I can't say as I have ever had a patient have neuropathy without extensive damage being done to the muscles or skin. ...Read more

I do psychology and when I tested a number of young people using the MOCA cognitive assessment they failed? Do they have dementia?

I do psychology and when I tested a number of young people using the MOCA cognitive assessment they failed? Do they have dementia?

Neuropsychologist : Dementia is a very serious diagnosis and should NOT be based on the findings of one single test. The MOCA has only been validated for mild cognitive impairment, not full dementia. The patient needs a full evaluation administered by a neuropsychologist who specializes in geriatric issues. A comprehensive battery of tests will be administered to indicate a much more comprehensive clinical picture. ...Read more
