What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy, short for peripheral neuropathy, is damage to the nerves in your extremities. This can leave you with numb patches, burning, aching, weakness, and tingling in your lower limbs. Many different problems can result in damaged nerves—diabetes, alcoholism, and some autoimmune diseases all can slow and impair nervous tissue. Trauma or compression, whether from a tumor or just being pinched, can also result in permanent injury. The key to relieving any nerve pain is to catch and treat the problem early, before it worsens.
