There are three types of nerves that make up your peripheral nervous system: the sensory nerves that provide sensation in your body, the motor nerves that control your muscle movements, and the autonomic nerves that control functions, like heart rhythm and blood pressure.
Damage to any of these nerves can cause symptoms like:
• Poor balance
• Muscle weakness
• Sharp, burning pain
• Lack of coordination
• Extreme sensitivity to touch
You may also experience changes in your bowel or bladder function or develop chronic digestion problems.
If you have persistent muscle weakness or pain that affects your mobility, you should schedule a diagnostic consultation with Dr. Ali at The Pain, Spine, and Sports Institute as soon as possible.
