Nerve damage or neuropathy normally occurs when the outer sheathing or the myelin (protective covering) of nerve cells degenerate. Without this protection the electrical signals are not transferred properly just like if you stripped the covering off of the electrical wires in your house.

As the nerve damage gets worse, the nerves either lose their ability to transmit information (numbness), or they start sending false signals (pain and tingling). the insulation begins to crumble, the unprotected “wire” will start short-circuiting. #nerve #nerves #nervepain #nervedamage #neuropathy #nervespecialist #neuro #neurology #numbness #tingling #pain #painmanagement #neurologist #neurologistmanila #neurologistphilippines #neurologistinmanila #drwinnielimkhoo #winnielimkhoo #winnie #winniesharonlimkhoo #winnielimkhooneurologist #manila #philippines – at Manila Doctors Hospital
