Neuropathy & Neuralgia

Neuropathy is a nerve condition that often can result in feeling pain, numbness, tingling, swelling, or muscle weakness in different parts of the body. It usually begins in the hands or feet, and gets worse over time.

Neuralgia refers pain along the nerve pathway as a result of damage or irritation to that nerve. This type of pain is typically described as a burning, stabbing, sharp and/or shocking sensation.


Causes

Neuropathy may be caused by physical injury, infection, toxic substances, shingles, disease (such as cancer, diabetes, kidney failure, or malnutrition), or drugs, including anticancer drugs.

When the cause of neuropathy is unknown, it is referred to as idiopathic neuropathy. Neuropathy can affect the sensory nerves (numbness, tingling, pain), motor nerves (weakness), and autonomic nerves (bladder control, increased heart rate, sweating).

Dr Rao is MY Absolute Favorite Doctor! Love him! His staff at Mt Airy and in Frederick, Maryland are the best of the best. Caring, kind and very friendly. I would recommend anyone to seek out Dr Rao and his staff in a heartbeat.

I LOVE this place. Dr B. and Dr Rao saved my life. In 2014, I could only walk about 15ft and had to use a wheelchair. It happened so quickly to me. I had extreme pain in my back, and legs. My other pain management wouldn't help at all.
