Are you recently diagnosed and wondering what causes neuropathy? If so, you are not alone. According to multiple sources, over 20 million people in the United states suffer with neuropathy. An estimated 60-70% of all diabetics eventually suffer with some neuropathy. Since diabetes is one of the most prevalent disease processes affecting 29 million plus Americans, neuropathy pain will continue being a major problem.
Diabetes is a big contributor to the neuropathy population, but it’s not alone. For instance, chemotherapy and toxin induced neuropathy. But, there are many others. Here are just a few of the other possible causes of neuropathy pain:
- autoimmune disorders
- vascular problems (poor blood flow)
- some infections and viruses
- nerve pressure from swollen tissues secondary to hormonal imbalances, tumors, etc.
- physical injury
