This disease have come under most common form of inflammatory finding in colon which when seen in a endoscopic view shows various pathological finding that can be mild to severe in form involving the deep tissue mucosa. Males are more prone to Segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis or SCAD as compared to the females and usually the older adults have it.

Segmental Colitis Associated with Diverticulosis

INTRODUCTION

In SCAD inflammation is found in sigmoid colon only and do not spread anywhere else. The most common sign of SCAD is bleeding from rectum. No infectious agent is found or suspected in etiology of this inflammatory disorder. SCAD can have several relapses and tends to limit on its own. However, in certain cases medical intervention is needed, the cases where several relapses are occurring causing severe complaints. The diverticulum is a sac like pouch protruding from the wall of the colon. Usually it causes no symptoms but there may occur certain complications like bleeding and segmental colitis with diverticulosis. SCAD is usually a non granulamatous inflammatory condition. When seen in a endoscopic view along with the certain patches of inflammatory lesions there are seen many diverticula as well in this condition. SCAD is found to be very similar to crohn's disease in many pathological views. In some rare cases even crohn's disease is found to be co-existing with Segmental colitis associated with Diverticulosis. Hence the proper diagnosis is must.

CAUSES

The exact cause of the disease is not known however the occurrence of diverticulosis is found first. Diverticulosis results in changes in the bacterial flors of the colon and also causes ischemic changes. These both the things lead to inflammatory changes in the sigmoid colon causing Sigmoid colitis associated with diverticulosis.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

The main feature of SCAD is rectal bleeding that can be either in the form of fresh blood or the occult/altered blood. There are certain other associated complaints with it:

  • Diarhhea that is chronic in nature
  • Pain in abdomen
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

DIAGNOSIS

Signs and symptoms make your physician to suspect the inflammatory process going on in your colon. However the exact diagnosis can be confirmed only after endoscopy and biopsy which reveals certain findings like Diverticulums and several spots of inflammation in colon which in biopsy shows absence of granulomas. If granulomas are present than do suspect and rule out Crhon's disease or Ulcerative colitis.

TREATMENT

As per the modern medicine system the SCAD is treated and managed with the help of corticosteroids and anti-inflammatory medicines. Even the surgical resection is advised to some patients to remove the affected part of the colon. However as knowing about the long list of side effects caused by corticosteroids and after effects of surgical resection, patients are hesitant to go for it. In this condition there is a best possible way out—Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the science of life which helps in treating different chronic diseases with the help of natural methods and medicines.

Alternative treatment for Non-Ischemic priapism with Herbal Remedies

Non-Ischemic priapism is erection of penis without any sexual stimulus or sexual desire. Non- Ischemic priapism or high blood flow priapism is a medical condition that occurs due to unregulated arterial blood flow within penis. This condition is less common and less painful as compared to ischemic priapism. The main reason behind this condition is blunt trauma to perineal region or directly to penis or scrotum. This article covers types of priapism, ethology, diagnosis and management as per Ayurveda. General treatment includes surgical intervention thus it's better to choose alternative treatment which is based on herbal supplements.

Non-Ischemic priapism

INTRODUCTION

As we have mentioned above Non-Ischemic priapism is a male disorder. Priapism is prolonged erection of penis which is without any sexual stimulus which last longer than 4 hours. Priapism is an uncommon condition which is not painful and but it is considered as a medical emergency. Priapism is of two types described below:

Ischemic

This type of priapism occurs due to lack of blood flow that leads to poor blood supply to chambers of corpus cavernosa resulting in painful erection. Males who are suffering from sickle cell anaemia, malaria, leukaemia, myeloma and who are on antidepressant therapy are more prone to this condition.

Non-ischaemic

This type of priapism occurs when blood flow is usually more than normal. Although this condition is rare than ischemic type. Non ischemic type mainly occurs as a result of trauma or injury to the penis or to perineum (Area between scrotum and anus). Any damage to the artery supplying blood to penis leads to Non-Ischaemic priapism. Non-Ischemic priapism if left untreated leads to progressive fibrosis and erectile dysfunction.

SYMPTOMS OF NON-ISCHEMIC PRIAPISM

Non-Ischemic priapism is a rare medical condition. It is persistent erection of penis occurs due to increased of blood. The symptoms of Non-Ischemic priapism vary in pain and blood flow as compare to ischemic type of Priapism.

  1. Penile erection more than 4 hours
  2. Absence of rigidity / flaccid erection
  3. Usually painless
  4. Erection without any sexual stimulus
  5. Presence of penile trauma or external injury

AETIOLOGY OF NON-ISCHEMIC PRIAPISM

In order to understand aetiology of non-ischemic priapism, firstly we should understand normal physiology behind penile erection. In normal condition, normal physiological or sexual stimulus causes contraction of blood vessels which leads to increased blood flow to the penis. Increased blood flow causes erection of penis, after stimulus is over erection comes to normal docile condition. Any kind of sexual stimulus initiate sending signals from brain to spinal cord that leads to penile erection. The erectile tissue corpus cavernosa is sponge like tissue which is filled with blood and responsible for erection. The root cause of non-ischemic priapism is improper blood flow to the penis. There are following factors which are responsible for unnatural blood flow to the penis:

  1. Any kind of external injury to perineum
  2. Spinal cord injury

The main cause of Non- Ischemic priapism is injury due to which excess amount of blood is pumped to penis resulting into its erection.

DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis of any disease depends on various factors such as complete history, current and past medical history. Diagnosis of non-ischemic priapism is made on the basis of complete medical history and physical examination. The proper diagnosis is made on the basis of below investigations to know the type of Priapism:

  1. Color doppler examination
  2. Blood gas testing (High blood flow indicates increased level of Ph)

COMPLICATIONS OF NON-ISCHEMIC PRIAPISM

Non- Ischemic priapism is a rare condition but its progression can cause severe complications. When erection is present for longer time, it can cause destruction of erectile tissue. High blood flow can cause permanent damage of erectile tissue resulting in erectile dysfunction and progression of disease also leads to other sexual problems.

Herbal Remedies for Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia

The Glossopharyngeal nerve is one of the cranial nerves which connects brain to various parts of the neck, head and trunk. There are total 12 cranial nerves that are present on the bottom of the brain. Function of these nerves is to control action of muscles, carry information from various sense organs to the brain and help in functioning of various major glands and organs like lungs and heart.

Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia

INTRODUCTION

Glossopharyngeal nerve is the ninth cranial nerve that supplies sensation to posterior third of tongue, pharynx, tongue and tympanic cavity. In this region one more significant cranial nerve, i.e. Vagua nerve, that helps in swallowing, also passes and significant overlap of both the nerves occur. However sometimes there occur compression of these both nerves at brainstem level (from where both the nerves emerges). This compression is usually caused by a vein or blood vessel passing nearby to them. While exiting the brainstem any small blood vessel can compress the nerves resulting in obstructed supply and complaints. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is caused when this blood vessel compress the 9th cranial nerve, i.e. Glossopharyngeal nerve.

Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is presented by the sharp, stabbing pain on the tongue in throat, radiating to tonsils and ears. This agonizing pain can last from fraction of seconds to few minutes. Usually the people above the age of 40-50 suffer from Glossopharyngeal neuralgia. This form of neuralgia occurs rarely in which patient suffers from repeated episodes of severe pain especially in tongue radiating to ear, throat and tonsils.

CAUSES

Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is caused due to the compression and irritation of the 9th cranial nerve (Glossopharyngeal nerve). It affects people usually around the age group of 40-50 years. Mostly the cause of this irritation and compression cannot be find out however some of the possible cases of Glossopharyngeal neuralgia are:

  • Glossopharyngeal nerve compressed by some blood vessel
  • An abnormal growth in the skull resulting in pressurization of 9th crainial nerve
  • Infections or tumor in mouth or thorat resulting in compression of the Glossopharyngeal nerve

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Pain is usually pricking in character and occurs on one side only and rarely both the sides are involved. The main symptom is severe agonizing pain in the areas supplied by Golossopharyngeal nerve which are posterior or back part of tongue, ear, back of the throat and nose, tonsil, throat, and larynx. Episodic pain is severe and can occur several times in a day and even can awake the person from sleep due to its severity and pricking nature. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia can be triggered by certain instances like chewing, coughing speaking, laughing, yawning, swallowing, sneezing, taking cold drinks or touching on the affected area.

DIAGNOSIS

Glossopharyngeal neuralgia can be diagnosed symptomatically however the for confirming the cause of the compression of the nerve various tests are required like blood tests, MRI and X ray of head and neck. These tests will help to rule the presence of infection in blood or tumor in head region which might be resulting in pressure on nerve.

TREATMENT

In modern medicine the treatment is focused on controlling the pain. Medicines are prescribed symptomatically and even surgery is required in cases of presence of any mechanical obstruction like tumor. However not many people wants to go for surgery. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia can be treated naturally with the help of herbal medicines.

Treatment of Right Coronary Artery Blockage in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

RCA blockage or Right coronary artery blockage is a serious medical condition where occurs blockage in one of the main artery supplying to the heart, i.e. Right coronary artery. This blockage is resulted due to the building up of atherosclerotic plaque in the arteries. Plaque causes narrowing of the artery resulting blockage of blood flow through it.

Right coronary artery blockage

INTRODUCTION

There are two coronary arteries, right and left which brings the oxygenated blood to heart. Arteries are usually elastic and soft in texture but building up of plaque causes them to narrow down and stiffened. Stiffness of the artery causes hampered blood flow to heart which is rich in oxygen hence heart remains deprived of it and can even result to sudden cardiac arrest or heart attack.

The main culprits behind the RCA blockage are cholesterol containing plaques and inflammation in the arteries. Heart get its nutrition, blood and oxygen through coronary arteries and blockage in any one of them results in damage to the heart muscles and then eventually signs and symptoms of angina and heart attack like pain in chest, difficulty in breathing, pain in neck, jaw or arm. RCA blockage is a slow growing progressive ailments and patient might not notice any sign or symptoms until the blockage is developed markedly.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

As the RCA blockage results in angina or heart attack, hence the signs and symptoms presented are of the corresponding condition. It is gradual phenomenon and the patient is unaware and asymptomatic for very long time and complaints develop only when there occurs damage to the muscles of the heart. Women are known to develop more marked complaints especially the peculiar sharp pain in the chest. Signs and symptoms of RCA blockage can be mistaken for heartburn and indigestion.

  • Feeling of dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain in neck, jaw, arms, shoulders, or back
  • Weakness
  • Nausea
  • Palpitations
  • Excessive sweating with anxiety

CAUSES

RCA blockage is caused due to the build of atherosclerotic plaque in the right coronary artery resulting obstructed blood flow to heart eventually resulting in damaged heart muscles and cardiac arrest. Coronary artery blockage can also occur due to injury to the artery and inflammation. This injury can be due to various causes like chronic smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and sedentary lifestyle.

RCA blockage can occur due to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when due to the above mentioned causes, there occurs injury to the coronary artery resulting in inflammation and then these cholesterol containing pigments deposits in the artery causing blockage.

RISK FACTORS

There are certain factors which increases the chances of a person to develop RCA blockage at any point of their life.

  • Old age people are more prone to have narrowed and damaged arteries.
  • Men are more prone to develop RCA blockage as compared to women.
  • Having a close relative who developed RCA blockage that too in young age increases chances of having it.
  • Smoking that too for long time increases risk of having coronary artery disease as well as Right coronary artery blockage.
  • Chronic hypertension results in hard and narrow blood vessels causing blocked arteries.
  • Having high blood cholesterol level increases the chance of precipitating and settling it in coronary arteries and forming atherosclerotic plaque.
  • Diabetes is commonly associated with any kind of coronary artery disease, hence have high chances of association with RCA blockage as well.
  • Being overweight increases chances of having other risk factors that too in a worsen condition.

DIAGNOSIS

RCA blockage can be suspected by your doctor on taking your detailed case history. You will be advised for certain blood tests and some of the test must be performed to confirm the diagnosis like ECG, Echocardiogram, Nuclear stress test, Cardiac catheterization and angiogram, Exercise stress test and Cardiact CT scan.

TREATMENT

Treatment of Arthrogryposis Multiple Congenital Disorder with Ayurveda

Congenital multiple arthrogryposis, also known as arthrogryposis, refers to the most severe congenital malformations of the musculoskeletal system. The disease in most cases endsup to in severe disability.The article is dedicated to the treatment of severe congenital pathology – Arthrogryposis Multiple Disorder. Providing general information about this pathology and, the causes of its occurrence.

WHAT IS ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLE CONGENITAL DISORDER?

Arthrogryposis is a disease characterized by congenital contractures of two or more joints of non-adjacent areas in combination with muscular hypo- or atrophy, damage to spinal cord motor neurons, with the exclusion of other known systemic diseases. It is a congenital pathology of the movement apparatus, manifested by numerous joint contractures, muscle wasting, and spinal cord injury.

Arthrogryposis Multiple Congenital Disorder

Congenital multiple arthrogryposis is a form of arthrogryposis, in which there is multiple damages to the joints of the upper and (or) lower extremities, as well as in some cases of the spine. It manifests itself with multiple gross deformities and contractures of the joints of the extremities in combination with damage to the tendon-muscular and ligamentous-ligamentous apparatus.

TYPES OF ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLE CONGENITAL DISORDER

There are the following types of arthrogryposis: Lesions of the lower extremities (Generalized), with lesions of the upper extremities (Distal form).

  • Generalized arthrogryposis (congenital multiple)- With a generalized type of arthrogryposis in severe cases, there is a lesion of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, and knee joints, deformities of the hands and feet, and the facial skeleton. Deformities of the spine are possible. Muscle hypotension or atony is characteristic. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the deformities of the limb segments are symmetrical and do not progress during the child's life. The defect of internal organs, as a rule, is not observed. In most cases, the intellect of patients is preserved.
  • Distal forms- In the distal type of arthrogryposis, deformities of the hands and feet are mainly observed, which in some cases are combined with the pathology of the large joints of the limbs, as well as with anomalies of the face and skull. This form is often a manifestation of hereditary diseases.

CAUSES OF ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLE CONGENITAL DISORDER

In general, the joint problems characteristic of arthrogryposis occur due to lack of movement within the uterus. This leads to atrophy of the muscles and stiffness of the muscle capsule (membrane that surrounds the joint), which results in limited movement in that region.

This lack of movement can occur due to several factors:

  • Diseases of the Central Nervous System, such as anencephaly and reduction of nerve cells in the spinal cord, which affect the baby's motor development.
  • Loss of amniotic fluid, which decreases the baby's ability to move
  • Multiple pregnancies, in which the baby ends up having less mobility due to lack of space
  • Maternal health complications, such as multiple sclerosis or vascular problems in the uterus
  • Use of drugs such as misoprostol (manufactured for the treatment and prevention of ulcer of the stomach, however, started to be used as an abortion), and drugs such as alcohol.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLE CONGENITAL DISORDER

Arthrogryposis multiple congenital disorder is a congenital malformation that leads to severe disability. Multiple congenital arthrogryposis is a disease in which the bones in one or more joints are interconnected, and therefore, movement in the joint is impossible. The symptomatology of arthrogryposis multiple congenital disorder is diverse.

Symptoms for Upper Extremities

In a typical form of lesion of the upper limbs, symptoms of upper extremities are as follow:-

  • Shoulders are fixed in the position of adduction and internal rotation.
  • Elbow joints are extended or slightly bent.
  • Forearms are pronated.
  • Hands are in the position of palmar flexion.
  • Elbow abduction.

Symptoms for Lower Extremities

In the lower extremities, various symptoms may include:-

  • Two types of joint damage can be found: with extensor contractures in the knee joints, dislocations in the hip joints and plano-valgus or calcaneo-valgus deformities of the feet are often observed.
  • Flexion contractures in the knee joints are combined.
  • Flexion and abduction contractures in the hip joints and bilateral clubfoot.

Common signs and symptoms of Upper and Lower Extremities include:

  • Multiple contractures of large and small joints and severe muscle atrophy.
  • Anomalies of the musculoskeletal system - clubfoot and clubfoot, dislocation of the articular ends, amniotic constrictions, etc.
  • A feature of arthrogryposis is the symmetry of contractures and deformities, more frequent damage to the distal extremities, as well as extreme stability and rigidity of deformities. They are very difficult to correct and relapse easily.
  • Children with arthrogryposis usually have normal intelligence, but noticeably lag behind in physical development.

DIAGNOSIS

Surpassing an Arthrogryposis condition untreated for the long term can lead to countless complications. Thus, it is required to get treatment on the moment for not making the state intense. Lookout for medical help if experiencing above mentioned symptoms. Various Diagnosis techniques of Arthrogryposis multiple congenital may include:

  1. Ultrasound screening.
  2. X-ray of the modified joints.
  3. Electroneuromyography (ENMG) for spinal cord injury.
  4. Electroencephalography (EEG) for the nervous system.

COMPLICATIONS IN ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLE CONGENITAL DISORDER

Arthrogryposis multiple congenital disorders does not pose an immediate threat to life. Complications are common in the condition of delayed treatment.

Complications in Arthrogryposis multiple congenital disorder can be serious and may include the following:

  • Retention of contractures prevents the child from performing the simplest movements.
  • Complete immobilization of damaged joints and irreversible deformity of the limbs are considered serious complications.
  • In severe cases, damage to the growth zones of bones and secondary damage to the epiphyses are also encountered.

Herbal Remedies for Sideroblastic Anemia Treatment

Most of the blood disorders are usually chronic as well as life threatening. Today again we came up with a rare blood disorder called Sideroblastic anemia in which due to structural deformity in the mitochondria's of Red blood cells, our body is unable to use iron and the person will end up with Anemia. In this article we are going to discuss the causes, Ayurvedic aspect of the disease, its signs and symptoms and management. The special part of this article is Ayurvedic management of this disease. This disease can affect anybody and can be a congenital problem.

Sideroblastic Anemia

INTRODUCTION

Sideroblastic anemia is a blood disorder where the iron is sufficient enough in the body but due to some defects the iron starts accumulating in the mitochondria's of red blood cells and gives rise to impaired structure of nucleus in mitochondria that is in the shape of ring hence called ringed sideroblasts. This structural deformity makes the mitochondria unable to utilize the iron for the production of hemoglobin hence interferes with the activities of the various organs and develops generalized weakness, tiredness, etc. This disease is also known by the name Sideroachrestic anemia.

This disease can affect anyone but the incidence ratio is quite high in males and more in the people below 25 and above 65 years of age.

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF SIDEROBLASTIC ANEMIA

As per Ayurveda, it is a Tridoshaj vyadhi in which all the tridoshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are involved. This disease is categorized under Pandu roga. In this disease Saptadhatus (All seven dhatus) especially rasa, rakta and majja dhatu, Trimalas (Three byproducts) along with Agni (Digestive fire) are involved and impairs the normal structure of the cells hence their functioning. Here, our Anuvanshika karna's (Hereditary factors), Sahaj Vikaras (Congenital defects) and Vyadhi kshamatva (Immunity) are involved.

ROLE OF HEMOGLOBIN AND MITOCHONDRIAS IN OUR BODY

Hemoglobin is an essential element in our body that plays a vital role in our body. It carries oxygen to the cells and brings back the carbon dioxide from the cells. So, that all the cells can perform their normal functions.

Mitochondria are an organelle which is considered as a powerhouse of the cell and provides energy to perform their normal functions in our body and it is present in the red blood cells. These mitochondria utilize the iron from the extracellular fluid for synthesizing cofactors for various functions in our body. They also convert Oxygen and nutrients into ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) which are responsible to carry out all the metabolic activities of the cells. Hence both the things synergistically affect the functions of cells and develop anemia.

WHAT CAUSES SIDEROBLASTIC ANEMIA?

The causes of this disease are still idiopathic. But there are some factors which are responsible for this such as:

  • Congenital defect - Any kind of defects in bone marrow, chromosomal abnormalities, etc.
  • Hereditary factors - X linked recessive genes, chromosomal abnormalities, etc.
  • Acquired causes are - indulgence in the long term use of some steroids, immunosuppressants and any malignancies.
  • Mutation in the genes is also a causative factor for this disease
  • Long term history of Diabetes, HTN, etc will act as a triggering factor for this disease.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF SIDEROBLASTIC ANEMIA

These are some common signs and symptoms of this disease:-

  • Fatigue
  • Tiredness without work
  • Generalized weakness
  • Gasping for air or breathlessness
  • Paleness of skin, nails and eyes.
  • Blurred vision
  • Tachycardia (Increased heart rate) and palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Inability to carry out daily works
  • Reduced cognitive skills
  • Delayed milestones
  • Sluggish activities
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Can affect any organ in our body such as Spleen, kidneys, liver, etc. and develops signs and symptoms related to them.

DIAGNOSIS

It is required to go for thorough investigation related to blood.

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Serum iron evaluations
  • Ferritin levels
  • Prussian blue 
  • Microscopic examination of red blood cells
  • Bone marrow aspiration

TREATMENT AS PER AYURVEDA

Sideroblastic anemia is a condition where symptoms are similar as those of other types of anemias. But this disease will progress with time. As per modern system of medicine, ferritin, iron, multivitamins, other supplements and blood transfusion and at the end bone marrow transplant is advised. Which are sometimes not even fruitful.

DEPRESSION AS PER AYURVEDA

In Ayurveda, depression is included in "MANAS VIKAR". Mann is main source to complete or to do any activity on daily basis. Our thoughts whether negative or positive, our imagination, dreams in all these Mann is involved and plays a major role. Mind (brain) and heart are two organs involved while doing any work and Mann is the chain between these too. Our every negative thought act as catalyst , it overpower our mind with the involvement of Mann and our mind start adding these in one corner, which later becomes our memories whether bad memories or good memories and these memories lead us on the way to depression.

Abnormal feeling of pins and needles in the skin, crawling, itching without any reason, numbness is termed as Paresthesia. This sensation can be felt in various parts of the body like fingers, toes, hands or feet. This is article is all about Paresthesia, it causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis and herbal treatment. Knowing disease might help you catch it early and prevent further damage to the body.

Paresthesia

INTRODUCTION

Paresthesia has been experienced by everyone at some point of time and there’s nothing wrong if it is short term and do not occur too often. Most commonly this feeling of pins and needles is felt by the people when their hands or foot fall asleep. This particular part may fall asleep due to sitting crossed legs for long time or sleeping with arm folded under the head which result in exertion of pressure on that particular nerve for long time unknowingly. However it gets back to normal after changing position and when nerve is free of pressure. This is temporary and non-pathological paresthesia and gets resolved without any treatment. However the pathological paresthesia is the one when this sensation persists for longer duration and do reoccur frequently and is due to certain underlying disorder.

Acute paresthesia is without any medical disorder while the chronic paresthesia is caused due to certain medical reason lying behind. Usually the cause is damage of the nerve due to certain trauma or presence of neurological disorder. Diseases affecting the central nervous system like transient ischemic attack, stroke, transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis or encephalitis can be the reason for paresthesia.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Paresthesia in itself is a symptoms of particular disease conditions. However paresthesia usually affects certain parts of the body like hands, arms, legs and feet and it can be of two types acute or chronic. However the symptoms of paresthesia are:

  • Tingling
  • Itching
  • Something crawling under or on the skin

  • Weakness
  • Cold
  • Burning
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Foot drop
  • Frequent falling asleep of foot or hand
  • Stabbing pain
  • Difficulty in walking (when occur in legs and feet)

CAUSES OF PARESTHESIA

Short term or acute paresthesia is usually a result of small period of bad blood circulation or too much pressure on certain nerve. However the long term or chronic paresthesia is caused due to the damage to the particular nerve of that area. Nerve damage is of two types, i.e. Radiculopathy and neuropathy.

  1. Radiculopathy is defined as the condition in which roots of the nerves are irritated, compressed or inflamed due to herniation of the disc that presses on nerve, narrow canal of spinal cord through which nerve is passed to extremities or formation of an abnormal mass compressing the nerve.
  2. Neuropathy is caused due to damage to the nerve chronically, usually due to high blood sugar. It can occur due to several other causes like kidney disease, liver disease, trauma or injury, stroke, certain autoimmune diseases, tumor of brain or around the nerves, certain medications etc.

DIAGNOSIS

Usually the paresthesia is diagnosed based on the clinical history of the patient, physical examination and lab tests. Presence of any of the underlying causes mentioned directs the doctor to go for further examination and tests which eventually leads to confirmation of the disorder. Your doctor can recommend tests like MRI, X ray and CT scans.

TREATMENT

Treatment of paresthesia depends upon the underlying cause. It confirmation and treatment may ease the paresthesia as well. If paresthesia is occurring due to certain lifestyle problem like repetitive movement injury than avoiding it or physical therapy for it can help out. Treatment is completely based on the underlying cause and even some sort of nerve damage are considered to be irreversible.
