What are the sensory nerves

When many friends are in the hospital, they often hear doctors telling patients that the sensory nerve is a problem in the ward. Most people don’t know what this means and what it feels like nerve? What are the sensory nerves?

The sensory nerve is also called the perceptual nerve. The better-understood term is the afferent nerve, which belongs to a branch of the peripheral nervous system. The sensory nerves of the human body are complex and diverse, and they help us respond to external things one by one. In daily life, the more common actions people do are nothing more than smell, see, and listen. These three actions correspond to our three most important sensory nerves, namely the olfactory nerve, the optic nerve, and the auditory nerve.

In our well-known nervous system, sensory nerves are also called receptor neurons, and its main task is to transmit nerve stimulation from the receptor itself or sensory organs to the central nervous system In the system. If the sensory nerve is abnormal, the initial manifestation is that the patient is unresponsive, and the body is numb to the external stimuli without obvious pain and burning sensation.

If the patient’s sensory nerves are severely damaged, deep sensory dysfunction may occur, and the more conventional manifestation is unstable walking, especially when walking stumbles at night becomes the norm. In addition, there may also be weakness in the extremities, which may lead to muscle atrophy and other symptoms. It is recommended to receive treatment early, pay attention to rest, and avoid overwork.
