“I’m not sure I have neuropathy, nor is my doctor…”
Unfortunately, this is something we hear all too often at our neuropathy and chronic pain clinic. This is why it is so important to get the knowledge out there in the hands of more competent and caring neuropathy treatment specialists. Being your own neuropathy advocate can also go a long way to ensuring you receive the treatment that you need to ease your symptoms and improve the quality of your life.
One of the worst things we can do for our symptoms is fail to try to treat the sleep disturbance and life disruption that oftentimes accompanies so many illnesses, including the various forms of peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain. This is where you can step in and become your own best neuropathy advocate.
Communicate with your providers. Some of our lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise or lack thereof, alcohol consumption, can exacerbate our symptoms. Be honest with your providers about these issues. And ask them what treatment options are available to you.
At our clinic we strongly recommend drug therapy only as a second, not first, resort!
The good news is there are now effective treatments, including the usage of portable devices like the NDGen, packaged in all our home care kits, which can be used by you or a loved one even at bedtime, which can make a huge difference in the resolution of your neuropathy and pain symptoms.
It’s also important to note that treating early and aggressively like this during the process of neuropathy and pain diagnosis has no negative side effects!
In fact, improving quality of life immediately is one of the reasons for our great NeuropathyDR® treatment success.
But this will require two things:
First, shifting your own mindset. Second, becoming your own neuropathy advocate.
The good news is, when neuropathy and chronic pain treatments are not harmful, and likely to be helpful in the short-term, most physicians and therapists are open-minded, and will go out of their way to help their patients.
But sometimes, it’s not enough to do your own homework. This is where NeuropathyDR® comes in.
One of the things we do all day long is field questions from patients and health care providers regarding our neuropathy treatment program success.
Often times, simply getting the knowledge out there in the hands of more competent and caring neuropathy treatment specialists is all that is needed.
Always remember, we are ready to begin help when you are!
