This type of neuropathy can restrict lower body movement to a great extent. Proximal neuropathy pain is quite bothering and even simple activities like walking on the stairs can be challenging. Patients face a hard time completing their day-to-day routine. Radiating pain from the affected region is a common complaint among proximal neuropathy patients. Focal Neuropathy This is relatively uncommon type of neuropathy and far different from peripheral and autonomic neuropathy. In focal neuropathy, only a single nerve is damaged and so the effect remains confined to one particular part of the body. Hence, the pain experienced is not radiating and remains restricted to a specific region. Focal neuropathy usually strikes the head and its effects manifest in the form of eye problems. This indicates that the nerve that regulates movement of eye muscles has been affected. Discomfort at the back of the eye, double vision, problems focusing the eyes are some of the common symptoms associated with focal neuropathy. There also have been reports of focal neuropathy causing facial paralysis (Bell's palsy), chest or abdominal pain or discomfort in the thigh, lower back, shin and pelvis depending upon the nerve that is damaged. Carpal tunnel syndrome, in which the median nerve located in the wrist and that provides sensation to the hand is damaged, can also occur as a consequence of focal neuropathy. Managing the diabetes properly is considered to be the best way to treat this medical condition. Preventing diabetic health complications like neuropathy is not difficult and for that, one has to follow a healthy diet low in fats and make exercise an integral part of day-to-day routine.
