Have you and your family or friends been sitting at the Overlook Drive-In Theater in Poughkeepsie watching “Turbo” and started to feel numbness and tingling in your legs and feet? It might not just be your feet falling asleep it could be Neuropathy!!

Neuropathy is an increasingly common condition, especially among diabetics!

Neuropathy is the damaging of nerves that carry information to different parts of the body.  There are different kinds of neuropathy and for most people this damage shows itself in the lower limbs, affecting the feet and lower legs.  One type called Peripheral Neuropathy can affect both sensory and motor function, while another called Diabetic Sensory Neuropathy only affects the sensation of the feet and lower legs. This results from varying blood-glucose levels affecting the metabolism of nerve cells. However, if you feel pain at the ball of your foot or in between your toes might not be neuropathy but, this could be a sign of a similar nerve condition called Morton’s Neuroma.

Could you be suffering from Neuropathy? Common symptoms of neuropathy in the feet include:

  • Tingling
  • Burning sensation
  • Numbness
  • Sensitive skin
  • Pain
  • Increasing symptoms at night
  • Muscle weakness in the foot
  • Dizziness with standing

All of these symptoms are reason to make an appointment and consult with a podiatrist like Dr. David Schlam immediately.  A decrease in sensation in the feet can be very dangerous because you may not know of a small cut, blister, or ulcer that appears.  If left untreated, a simple injury could become infected and become a much bigger health issue.

So if you or anyone you know has any of these symptoms please don’t wait and make an appointment with your podiatrist. Local podiatrist Dr. David Schlam at Hollowbrook Foot Specialist in >Wappinger Falls can help to see if you suffer from any kind of neuropathy and help to treat it!!
