What kind of neuropathy is it and what is neuropathy and what can a dr. give me to make all this pain stop!!! I had a nerve conduction study done by a Neurologist ,When I went back for the results, I was told I had sensory Neuropathy , when I aked him what that was he said to look it up on the net when I get home. I have applied for Disability because I also have ADHD and herniated disc s in my neck. I requested a diagnosis for Social Security but I do not understand what it means, could someone tell me please? Here it is: IMPRESSION: Sensory neuropathy involving bilateral ulnar and median nerves. Clinical correlation indicated.
neuropathy is degenerative changes in the nerves
in your case the most probably the herniated disc is causing root pressure and responsible for the changes it is better you consult orthopaedic surgeon and get treatment for the herniated disc and that may result in improvement in your case earler the treatment better the result
so please do not delay getting definitive treatment
hoping early recovery
Peripheral neuropathy is a problem with the nerves that carry information to and from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This can produce pain, loss of sensation, and an inability to control muscles.
"Peripheral" means nerves further out from the center of the body, distant from the brain and spinal cord (which are called the central nervous system).
"Neuro" means nerves.
"Pathy" means abnormal.Treatment involves:
Addressing the cause (such as diabetes or excess alcohol use)
Helping the patient gain maximum independence and self-care ability
Replacing any vitamin or other deficiencies in the diet
Stopping injury to the nerve (for example, in cases of neuropathy due to compression
