Neuropathy is defined as the disease or dysfunction of one or more nerves, typically in the hands and/or feet, resulting in numbness, tingling and/or pain. There are many different types and causes of neuropathy.
Common symptoms include:
- Loss of sensation in upper and lower extremities
- Burning, numbness, tingling or weakness in the limbs
- Increased pain that significantly impact one’s quality of life
If left untreated, neuropathy can develop into a serious disorder and lead to permanent nerve damage.
