Peripheral neuropathy most notably, causes pain and numbness in your hands and feet.
The pain typically is described as tingling or burning, while the loss of sensation often is compared to the feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove.
Peripheral neuropathy can result from such problems as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes of the disorder is diabetes.
Having a peripheral neuropathy can be very debilitating. Some symptoms include:
Gradual onset of numbness and tingling in your feet or hands, which may spread upwards into your legs and arms as symptoms persist.
Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
Extreme sensitivity to touch, even light touch
Lack of coordination
Muscle weakness or paralysis if motor nerves are affected
Bowel or bladder problems if autonomic nerves are affected
