Loss of control over one’s bladder. While this is not one of the central symptoms of this condition, it is still experienced by a large number of those who suffer from neuropathy. Lack of control over the bladder actually represents the inability of the nerves to transmit messages from the brain correctly. As the disease progresses, this lack of control will become more marked.
Vertigo, and an inability to keep one’s balance. Bodily coordination can become quite difficult when one suffers from neuropathy. This is because of receptors called proprioceptors, which are located beneath the skin all over one’s body, and whose function is to detect stimuli, begin to malfunction. When sensory input is flawed, bodily coordination becomes extremely difficult.
Infections in the lower limbs, and especially the feet. As nerves transmitting and receiving information from the lower extremities are damaged, the very maintenance of the tissues in these extremities becomes a problem. Blood flow is considerably reduced, which means that nutrition to the limbs, and especially to the feet, is massively affected. This makes the feet far more prone to infection, and sufferers from neuropathy will often experience infections of the feet far more regularly than do other people.
