Peripheral neuropathy

Updated: 2017-06-13


Peripheral neuropathy is a result of nerve damage. A common cause is diabetes, but it can also result from injuries, infections, and exposure to toxins.


It often causes numbness and pain, usually in the hands and feet.


Medications can treat painful symptoms, which may improve over time, especially if the underlying condition is treated.
