Myth:  I have neuropathy. Will I end up being wheelchair bound...or worse?

Neuropathy’s symptoms vary depending on the underlying cause, the type of nerve affected and the severity of the disorder. While some neuropathies are subtle and tend to be ignored, others are severe and debilitating, often to the point where the patient can become wheelchair bound.  Very rarely, some neuropathies are fatal.

It is critical that you recognize the symptoms, however subtle they may be.  The sooner a patient is diagnosed and treated, the greater the chances of halting neuropathy’s progression and controlling the debilitating conditions that may occur.
