Peripheral Neuropathy is the damage or injury to any nerve located outside of the brain and spinal cord. The most common occurrence of peripheral neuropathy is in the nerves of the arms, hands, legs and feet.
Common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are muscle weakness, muscle cramping or spasms. Numbness or tingling that occurs in the arms, hands, legs or feet are also signs of nerve damage. Often times, patients will note they feel a “electric” pain in the arms or legs, or a feeling of wearing an invisible “sock” or “glove”. Burning sensations are another sign of this nerve damage.
Medication or blood sugar can also cause these same sensations to occur and often times, patients with long-term diabetes or blood sugar irregularities will complain of nerve pain or sensory dysfunction.
That is why is so crucial that proper testing and assessment is performed to evaluate what is causing your peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage. In our office, our doctors and healthcare professionals are trained extensively in the diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy or nerve pain conditions.
