Not taking care of acute painful episodes when they occur is one reason human beings go on to develop chronic pain.
It has been known for many years that not taking care of acute painful episodes when they occur is one of the reasons that human beings go on to develop chronic pain.

But for lots of things we experience in daily life, jumping at the first sign of dysfunction can go along way towards preventing a more chronic and serious health problem.
When speaking about peripheral neuropathy in particular, we commonly find out the patients have had mild symptoms often for years. Sometimes their own physicians don’t take these early signs seriously.
As we speak about all the time there is no such thing as a little neuropathy, or your blood sugar being “slightly bad”.
It’s just like you really can’t be a little overweight. You’re either fit or you’re not. You’re either trim and have adequate muscle mass or you don’t.
