Nerve weakness or palsy refers to anything from weakness to complete paralysis and commonly, manifests any kind of nerve damage.
Occasionally, it is transient and fades with time. However, when it is not resolved with time, it presents as a concerning health issue, required to be handled carefully. Nerve problems or neuropathies are considered to be Vata diseases in the Indian traditional school of medicine. Vata is regarded as one of three constitutional groupings known as doshas, is associated with the energy of the wind and, is primarily responsible for activation of the nervous system.
Vata is located in the lumbosacral (Kati) region and exerts its influence over cell division, cardiac function, and waste disposal. Vata is revered as ‘prana’, the most powerful dosha. In Ayurveda, people associated with Vata dosha are more prone to neurogenic conditions such as neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disorders, insomnia, and anxiety.
Contraction of joints around the damaged nerve may complicate motor damage, while a loss of sensation may result in accidental or related injuries. Necrosis occurring in and around the degenerated nerve may lead to a neuroma, paraesthesia, altered sensitivity to heat or cold, paresis and even, paralysis.
