More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves in the arms and legs. If you are one of them, you know how devastating this condition can be.
Neuropathy is a collection of disorders that occurs when nerves of the peripheral nervous system (the part of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord) are damaged. The condition is generally referred to as peripheral neuropathy, and it is most commonly a result of damage to nerve axons.
Neuropathy usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. It can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic disorders, and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes.
