DR. JADALI’S APPROACH TO NEUROPATHY, IN GENERAL, IS UNIQUE AND COMPREHENSIVE. AN INTRACELLULAR, LYMPHOCYTIC BASED VITAMINS/MINERAL/AMINO ACID AND ANTIOXIDANT BLOOD WORK IN ADDITION TO A FULL MICROBIOME EVALUATION THAT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THYROID, CORTISOL, AND IRON MEASUREMENT CAN GET TO THE BOTTOM-LINE ISSUE OF NEUROPATHY. ALSO, DR. JADALI CAN OBJECTIVELY TEST LARGE AND SMALL FIBER NEUROPATHIES THAT MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BUY OTHER DISEASES AS WELL.

Numbness and Tingling (Neuropathy)

There are many possible causes of numbness and tingling:

  • Sitting or standing in the same position for a long time
  • Injuring a nerve (a neck injury may cause you to feel numbness anywhere along your arm or hand, while a low back injury can cause numbness or tingling down the back of your leg)
  • Pressure on the nerves of the spine, such as from a herniated disk
  • Pressure on peripheral nerves from enlarged blood vessels, tumors, scar tissue, or infection
  • Shingles or herpes zoster infection
  • Lack of blood supply to an area, such as from atherosclerosis, frostbite, or vessel inflammation (vasculitis)

 

  • Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body
  • A lack or excess of vitamin B12, B6 or other vitamins
  • Use of certain medications
  • Nerve damage due to lead, alcohol, tobacco or chemotherapy drugs
  • Radiation therapy
  • Animal bites
  • Insect, tick, mite, and spider bites
  • Seafood toxins

Numbness and tingling can be caused by other medical conditions, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (pressure on a nerve at the wrist)
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome(pressure on a nerve at the ankle)
  • Diabetes
  • Migraines
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Seizures
  • Stroke
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA), sometimes called a "mini-stroke"
  • Underactive thyroid
  • Raynaud's phenomenon (narrowing of the blood vessels, usually in the hands and feet)
