Neuropathy support group will meet

By From page A5 | September 05, 2014

Do your feet or hands tingle? Do you feel like they are numb, burning or freezing? Do you have stinging, stabbing or shooting pains? Do you feel like you’re wearing a stocking or glove when you’re not?

“You may have peripheral neuropathy, which is the most common disease most folks have never heard of,” a news release said.

There are more than 100 causes for peripheral neuropathy symptoms. Diabetes accounts for about a third, but other causes include heredity, alcoholism, radiation, toxic chemical exposure, HIV, too much vitamin B6, gluten intolerance, some medications and unknown origin (idiopathic). About 2 million Californians have PN.

To learn more from others with similar symptoms and to receive support, you’re invited to attend the next meeting of the Davis Neuropathy Group from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

For more information or to receive the newsletter, call Mary Sprifke at 530-756-5102 or Retta Gilbert at 530-747-0186.
