Peripheral Neuropathy Pain Management & Treatments
It is common for people with peripheral neuropathy to experience different degrees of pain. It’s important to identify the type of pain medication that will work best for managing painful peripheral neuropathy symptoms, that also works with your body chemistry, and complements other treatments.
Acute pain accompanies illness, inflammation, or injury to tissues. The onset of acute pain is sudden and may occur with emotional distress. The cause of acute pain can usually be diagnosed and treated, and the pain will go away over time. Occasionally, acute pain can become chronic.
Chronic pain may be part of the disease itself. Environmental and psychological factors may make it become worse. Chronic pain lasts for longer periods of time than acute pain and is more difficult to treat.
Today, many treatment options exist (over-the counter, doctor prescribed and alternative/complementary treatments) to alleviate symptoms, and aide in peripheral neuropathy pain relief, and it’s important to find the treatment option that will work best for you.
