Many people experience numbness or tingling sensations in different parts of their bodies.
But it’s rare for someone to suffer from these symptoms all of the time. In some cases, it can be mild, occasional, or even chronic. It can also accompany other serious symptoms, such as muscle weakness, pain, numbness, dizziness, and fatigue.
Numbness in the extremities is usually caused by nerve damage or injury, but it can also be caused by infections, tumors, medication interactions, or psychological problems. Common symptoms include numbness of the hands or feet, burning or stinging sensations, weakness of the extremities, and/or weakness in the lower body. For some people, numbness or tingling can be a symptom of nerve damage, that can result from causes such as repetitive stress injuries, trauma, or a traumatic brain injury.
Nerve damage is the most common cause of numbness in the feet. It can occur when there’s an injury to the tendons that attach the toes to the foot, when the plantar fascia stretches to a point that it tears, when the tendon sheath of the plantar fascia becomes too damaged, or when you’re infected.
Other less serious medical conditions that cause numbness in the feet include arthritis and kidney disease.
Arthritis occurs because of a build-up of scar tissue in the joint, called osteoarthritis, and is often accompanied by a reduction of blood flow to the injured area.
A similar condition is called plantar fasciitis. This can happen if you have a pinched nerve on the outside of the heel bone or on the inside of the heel bone. It can also be caused by infection, arthritis, injury, inflammation of the muscles, or injury to the bone surrounding the heel bone.
Numbness and tingling are caused when the nerves are damaged. A condition called neuropathy, when the nerves do not conduct the proper signals to and from the brain, can result in numbness and tingling sensations in the lower leg and foot. Common symptoms of neuropathy include weakness in the calf muscles, leg cramps, leg swelling, difficulty walking, and/or inability to sit down.
These are just some of the many medical conditions that can cause this type of discomfort. But you don’t need to suffer pain and numbness in your legs if you are aware of the source of your symptoms.
There are several NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques that can help with these issues. When you learn these techniques, you’ll be able to recognize and correct the source of your symptoms and you’ll feel better almost immediately.
Not only will you feel better physically, but you’ll also feel better emotionally as well.
One of the first steps in NLP for this problem is to identify the main issue. Once you’ve identified what’s causing your numbness, you can begin to modify your thinking to change the way you respond to the situation that’s causing your symptoms. For example, if you experience numbness and tingling in your heel and in the middle of the foot, the root of the problem may be related to the way you walk.
Instead of looking at the pain as being caused by an issue with the pain-generating part of your body, see it as a symptom of your body’s reaction to the way you walk. In other words, your body is not reacting to the pain so much as the way you’re walking.
In order to change how you walk, you can begin to use walking supports like a walking shoe. or even special orthotics to make sure your feet stay in the same position throughout the day, thus keeping the plantar fascia and the tendons from being overstretched.
You can also use NLP for chronic conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis and nerve problems. If you notice that the symptoms keep coming back, you might want to consider doing some NLP exercises that have been developed to help. And of course, you might want to speak to a chiropractor about a chiropractic treatment for pain or injuries to the foot and to the lower back and upper leg.
