What causes polyneuropathy?
And I have been invaded by one before I got tis problem.
What do you reccomend me to do ?
treat the cuse if possible
There are many reasons for polyneuropathy. The most common causes are diabetes, thyroid disorders, vitamin B12, B6 deficiencies. Other causes are certain drugs, toxins, enviromental causes etc. Tick bite can also cause it rarely.
It is important to find the cause, so that undelying cause could be treated . However, for past tick infestation, we can not do anything now. We hae to symptomaticlly treat neuropathy with Gabapetin, Pregabalin or Duloxetine.
the medicin you refer to, are they corticosteroids and do they cause severe sideeffects? I have read that plasma exchange or IV globulin and antimetabolit drugs could be used for myelin dysfunction, what is Your openion?
I am interested in Food as medicin as well, are there anything to help rebuilding myelin or inhibit the process?
Plasmapheresis and immunoglobulin etc are useful in specefic types of neuropathies like GB syndrome and Demyelinating polyneuropathies.
The drugs which I mentioned may cause drowsiness and giddiness in some people .
There is no specific food. But a mixture of good food rich in antioxidants and vitamins will help like green leafy vegetables and fruits
