More than 10 million people in the United States, including right here in Hilton Head Island, suffer from peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder that occurs when the nerves on the outer part of the nervous system are malfunctioning because they have become damaged or destroyed. This affects the nerves that go through the feet, legs, shoulders, hands, and arms.
The condition becomes apparent when the person begins experiencing numbness, tingling, or prickling in the fingers or toes. This sensation can spread to the hands and feet causing a throbbing or shooting pain.
The Most Common Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy Include:
- Muscle Weakness
- Muscle Spasms
- Numbness or tingling of the hands/feet
- Burning or shock-like sensation
- Sensitivity to touch
- The sensation of tightness, similar to wearing tight gloves or socks
Peripheral Neuropathy is most often caused due to nerve damage brought on by chemotherapy, or due to diabetic nerve damage. Other causes of peripheral neuropathy include trauma, injury, or the side effect of a system illness.
