What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a condition caused by damage or dysfunction of one or more nerves that commonly starts in the hands and feet. Neuropathy typically results in numbness, tingling, pain, and muscle weakness in the affected area. Neuropathy is often referred to as peripheral neuropathy because it indicates there are complications within the peripheral nervous systems affecting the nerves outside the brain and nervous system. When the nerve cells are damaged or destroyed, it affects how the neurons communicate with each other and the brain. Interruptions in nerve communication lead to different neuropathy symptoms, including chronic discomfort, tingling, nerve pain, and numbness.
What Causes Neuropathy?
Several things can cause damage to the nerves in your body, including age, illness, genetics, and trauma. Some common causes of neuropathy include:
- Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy
