What You Need to Know About Peripheral Neuropathy
Do you or someone you know experience numbness, tingling, or burning in your extremities? Do you feel like the feeling is just "different" in your arms or legs? If so, you may be experiencing peripheral neuropathy.
An estimated 20 million people in the United States have some type of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord) and any other part of the body. (Neuropathy means nerve disease or damage.) Symptoms can range from numbness or tingling to pricking sensations (paresthesia) or muscle weakness. Areas of the body may become abnormally sensitive, leading to an exaggeratedly intense or distorted experience of touch (allodynia). In such cases, the pain may occur in response to a stimulus that is not normally painful. Serious symptoms may include burning pain (especially at night), muscle atrophy, paralysis, or organ or gland dysfunction. Damage to the nerves that supply internal organs can affect digestion, sweating, sexual function, and urination. In the most extreme cases, breathing can become difficult or organ failure can occur.
