Peripheral Neuropathy means a nerve pathology in the periphery, which is usually feet and hands. Affecting over 20 minion people it is one of the most prevalent illnesses in this country. Typically it begins in the feet, then the hands, and progresses toward the center of the body. Beginning with a burning sensation it often progresses to pain and weakness and finally to numbness. For severe cases the possibility of amputation begins to be a consideration. Usually beginning with sensory nerves, the damage disrupts the communication between the brain and the skin, muscles, joints and can affect internal organs.
Often associated with diabetes, causes like physical or chemical injury, nutritional deficiencies and illness can result in the loss of communication between the brain and other parts of the body.
