Neuropathy is a group of conditions that occur when peripheral nerves are damaged. Peripheral neuropathy is the most commonly used term.  Neuropathy usually causes numbness and pain in the hands and feet, and may result from traumatic injuries, infections, exposure to toxins and metabolic disorders such as diabetes.  Neuropathy is often associated with poor nutrition, a number of diseases such as diabetes, and pressure or trauma.  There are a number of cases have no known reason (called idiopathic neuropathy).  Approximately 20 million people in the United States suffer from neuropathy.

Diabetes is one of the most common causes of neuropathy and is a serious complication of diabetes.  In fact, over half of those with diabetes also have peripheral neuropathy. High blood sugar levels can result in damage to nerves throughout your body, but frequently the nerve damage occurs in the legs and feet.  Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy range from pain and numbness in your extremities (arms and hands, legs and feet) to digestive problems, urinary tract problems, and problems with your blood vessels and your heart.  Some individuals only have mild symptoms, while others, especially those with diabetic neuropathy have very painful, disabling symptoms.  It is possible that it may be controlled with appropriate intervention.

Neuropathy may also affect nerves that control muscle movement as well as those that detect sensations such as pain or cold.  In some cases, such as in autonomic neuropathy, it can affect internal organs, like the heart, blood vessels, bladder, or intestines.

The pain that occurs from peripheral neuropathy is often described as a burning or tingling sensation. Sometimes these symptoms may improve over time if the neuropathy has an underlying condition that can be successfully addressed.
