Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to your peripheral nerves, often causes weakness, numbness, and pain, usually in the hands and feet. It may also affect other areas of your body.

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Foot and ankle pain

  • inflammation of the knees, calves, or shoulders

  • Limited range of movement

  • Numbness and tingling

  • Weakness or tremors

  • Headaches and migraines


Your peripheral nervous system sends information from your brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to the rest of your body. Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes, and exposure to toxins.

People with peripheral neuropathy generally describe the pain as stabbing or burning. Often, there’s tingling. In many cases, symptoms improve, especially if caused by a treatable underlying condition.
