What is Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a painful condition resulting from damaged peripheral nerves. It often causes weakness, numbness and pain, typically in the feet and hands, making everyday tasks difficult.

About three-fourths of neuropathies are length-dependent, meaning the farthest nerve endings in the feet are where symptoms develop first or are worse.

Neuropathy Symptoms

Neuropathy Symptoms

Generally the pain is described as shooting or stabbing, prickling, burning, tingling and/or numbness. Rarely is neuropathy life-threatening.

Neuropathy Causes

Neuropathy Causes

While there are several causes of peripheral neuropathy, diabetes is the leading cause in the United States. About 60 – 70 percent of diabetics have mild to severe neuropathy. Chemotherapy drugs also cause neuropathy in an estimated 30 to 40 percent of chemotherapy patients. Radiation therapy can also cause nerve damage. As many as one-third of all neuropathies are classified as idiopathic neuropathies – or from unknown causes.

Neuropathy Treatments

Neuropathy Treatments

Treatment depends on the cause and severity of symptoms. Some common treatments involve physical therapy, surgery, and injections for increased nerve pressure.
