Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy typically involves pain and burning in the upper and/or lower extremities. This may be the result of damage to your peripheral nerves from conditions such as diabetes, alcoholism, toxins, vitamin deficiencies, chemotherapy treatment, infection, traumatic injury, or disorders of the kidneys, liver and thyroid. 

Symptoms may include: numbness, tingling, painful sensations in your extremities, problems with strength and coordination, cramps, muscle spasms, heat and touch sensitivity, digestive and urinary problems, or heart rate and blood pressure changes.

Treatments vary based on the cause of your neuropathy, but may involve physical therapy, medications, physical therapy, nerve stimulation therapy or other options.
