Nerve Disorders

Common Nerve Disorders

The nerves are an integral part of the human body, helping to send messages between the brain and other body parts. Damage to the nerves, or nerve disorders, can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms and significantly reduce one's quality of life.

Here are some common nerve disorders:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - occurs when the median nerve is compressed near the wrist. Symptoms include numbness and tingling in the hand, arm, or fingers.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy - a condition where the peripheral nerves become damaged, resulting in muscle weakness, sensory problems like numbness, and other issues.
  • Facial Nerve Disorders - damage to the facial nerve can lead to problems with facial expressions and movement, as well as taste and hearing.
  • Multiple Sclerosis - a condition affecting the communication between the brain and other parts of the body, resulting in problems like numbness, clumsiness, and fatigue.

If you are experiencing any concerning symptoms, you should consult your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
