Laging nakakaramdam ng pamamanhid at tusok-tusok na pabalik-balik? People often think that these are just signs of stress and exhaustion. But if you’re experiencing these almost every day, these could already be symptoms of nerve damage. In fact, a lot of Filipinos might already be suffering from these symptoms without knowing.

In 2022, a Philippines Neuropathy Survey1 from BrandWorks Market Intelligence & Consulting was conducted among 400 Filipinos based in Metro Manila, Visayas, and Mindanao from ages 35 to 65.

According to the survey, the majority of the respondents experience at least one of the three nerve damage symptoms – pamamanhid, tusok-tusok, and pangangalay. Meanwhile, 80% of the respondents experience all of the three symptoms.

When asked about what facets of their lives are affected by nerve damage symptoms, the top three answers ranged from work or source of income, doing household chores, and basic mobility in general. Despite these findings, it was found out that nerve health remains to be of less priority among Filipinos who consider nerve damage symptoms as just “normal” and “part of life.”

Moreover, the awareness of the term “neuropathy” also remains low, while the awareness of the term “nerve damage” is almost unchanged compared to the 2020 survey results in the Greater Manila Area.

How to #KnowTheFeeling

To help Filipinos become more aware of neuropathy, Vitamins B1+B6+B12 (Neurobion) launched Neuri, a chatbot that can help assess your risk factors for nerve damage.

You can access Neuri the chatbot by visiting https://www.neurobion-neuri.com/ using any browser on your desktop or mobile device. Neuri can help you check if your symptoms are signs of nerve damage by asking a few questions. 

The questions you will be asked are similar to what a doctor might also ask you: What kind of sensations do you feel in your hands and feet? How long have you been feeling these sensations? Do they get worse at night? And more specific questions to help guide your next steps.

While chatting with Neuri is better than searching the whole world wide web and getting inaccurate information, this consultation is, of course, not intended to replace a visit to a doctor. That’s why there’s also a button within Neuri that lets you find doctors near your area so you can schedule a more thorough consultation.

You can also find a button that will lead you to recommended products to help prevent and manage the symptoms of nerve damage.
