Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, is a condition that involves damage or dysfunction of the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are responsible for transmitting signals between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the rest of the body, including the limbs, organs, and skin.

Neuropathy can affect one nerve (mononeuropathy) or multiple nerves (polyneuropathy) and can manifest in various ways depending on the nerves involved. The most common type of neuropathy is peripheral polyneuropathy, which typically affects the hands and feet.

Common symptoms of neuropathy include:

Tingling or numbness: Individuals may experience a sensation of “pins and needles” or numbness in the affected areas.

Burning or shooting pain: Some people with neuropathy may experience sharp, shooting pain or a constant burning sensation.

Muscle weakness: Weakness in the affected muscles, leading to difficulty with coordination or movements.

Loss of balance: Neuropathy can affect proprioception (the sense of body position), leading to problems with balance and an increased risk of falls.

Sensitivity to touch: Some individuals may become more sensitive to touch, experiencing pain or discomfort even with gentle pressure.

Neuropathy can have various underlying causes, including:

Diabetes: Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy. High blood sugar levels can damage the nerves over time.
Autoimmune diseases: Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Guillain-Barré syndrome can cause nerve damage.
Trauma or injury: Physical trauma, such as accidents or repetitive stress injuries, can lead to nerve damage.
Infections: Certain viral or bacterial infections, such as shingles, Lyme disease, or HIV, can affect the peripheral nerves.
Nutritional deficiencies: Deficiencies in vitamins (such as B vitamins) and minerals (such as iron) can contribute to neuropathy.
Alcoholism: Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to nerve damage.
Medications and toxins: Certain medications, chemotherapy drugs, and exposure to toxins like heavy metals can cause neuropathy.
