Pain affects millions of Americans every day, has a serious and direct impact on the quality of life for the individuals suffering from it. At Atlanta Medical Clinic, we have helped thousands of patients over the years suffering from both chronic and acute forms of pain through innovative, non-surgical and minimally-invasive medical procedures.
It’s 3 a.m. and you’ve been staring at your bedroom ceiling for nearly 2 hours, unable to sleep or get any rest at all. After what seems an eternity, you begin to feel yourself slip away, and drift off into a blissful slumber. After what feels like a blink, you’re awakened by sharp, agonizing cramps shooting through your legs and feet. Wincing in pain, the only relief you get is when you start moving your legs. Temporary relief comes, but at a cost – now, you’re fully awake again.
For millions of Americans, nightfall brings on the anxiety of another night’s sleep lost to restlessness, and it’s not just a racing mind keeping them awake. RLS, or Restless Leg Syndrome, is just that, a neurological disorder that creates the irresistible urge to move the legs (and sometimes the arms) to relieve uncomfortable sensations like itching, pins and needles, or a crawling sort of sensation in the extremities. While there is no exact cause or specific cure, researchers are seeing undeniable correlations between RLS and CVI, or Chronic Venous Insufficiency. How might these two conditions be connected and what treatments could prove effective for both?
Diabetes is a disease affecting over 30 million people in the US, or about 10% of the population, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease. Impacts of the condition can spread through the systems in the body, and lead to a number of complications, including heart, kidney and dental diseases, stroke, eye and foot problems, and even nerve damage. What is diabetes, and how do conditions like diabetic neuropathy affect the feet and skin?
If you are in need of hip pain relief, you may think surgery is the ultimate avenue. However, operations often go wrong. For instance, nearly a quarter of people (21.8%) had postoperative complications following hip fracture surgery, per one small-scale study. Similarly, revision surgery was performed for more than 1 in 8 primary hip arthroscopy cases (13.2%) in a study of more than 8000 operations.

Diagnosing neuropathy should of course be conducted by a medical professional. However, patients can get a better idea whether they might have it or not by looking over the most common symptoms of neuropathy – to see if those symptoms line up with what they are experiencing. They can also benefit from considering causes of neuropathic pain that might put them in a high-risk group. Finally, it is specifically worth looking at the differences between peripheral neuropathic pain and multiple sclerosis since the two conditions are so similar and, hence, often misdiagnosed.
