Many types of amyloidosis can affect patients’ nerves, causing painful, annoying, or even debilitating symptoms. It is common for patients with amyloidosis to experience neuropathy and in fact, some patients may have nerve-related symptoms as their most predominant sign or chief complaint.
This booklet discusses the various impacts that amyloidosis
may have on a patient’s nerves, the symptoms associated with the disease process, and potential management techniques. We encourage you to contact your health care provider if you have specific questions about your diagnosis of amyloidosis and the nerve symptoms you may be experiencing.
A well-informed patient is better able to be an active partner with their health care team in making decisions about treatment, managing their care, and advocating for their needs. This booklet is here to serve as a comprehensive resource and a guide for making informed treatment decisions.
