Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms
Do Not Have to Limit Your Life.
Are you hands or feet numb? Do they tingle? Are they painful? If so, you may be suffering from peripheral neuropathy, a result of nerve damage, which often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet. It may also occur in other areas of your body. People generally describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning, while they may compare the loss of sensation to the feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove.
Peripheral neuropathy can result from problems such as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes. In many cases, peripheral neuropathy symptoms improve with time, especially if the underlying condition, like diabetes, is reversed by balancing the body’s chemistry.
