Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms & Treatment

Peripheral neuropathy is generally a result of nerve damage that causes numbness in the extremities (hands and feet). While one of the most common causes for nerve damage like this is diabetes, the condition can also be a result of:

  • Infections
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Metabolic issues
  • Traumatic injuries

Possible Symptoms of Nerve Damage
Peripheral neuropathy can occur in sensory nerves, motor nerves, or autonomic nerves, and most often starts in the nerves that reach to the toes. Symptoms depend on the affected nerves, but look out for the following:

  • Burning
  • Gradual onset of numbness and tingling that can spread
  • Sensitivity to even the lightest of touches
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sharp, electric-like pain

The condition can affect one, two, or even several nerves. Early diagnosis is key, so as soon as you experience symptoms, seek professional help from a neurologist.

Our number one goal here at the Neurology Center is to manage the condition causing the neuropathy. Often, once this underlying condition is properly addressed, peripheral neuropathy goes away on its own. We may also help relieve your pain with medications or simple lifestyle changes.
