What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy, also referred to as peripheral neuropathy, is not a single health condition per se, but rather a term used to describe a wide range of health problems often resulting in weakness, numbness, and pain from nerve damage, usually in the hands and feet. The most commons symptoms of neuropathy include:

  • Tingling
  • Pins and needles
  • Numbness
  • Loss of feeling
  • Chronic or acute pain
  • Balance problems
  • Burning sensation
  • Shooting pains
  • Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold

What causes Neuropathy?

While diabetes is the leading cause of neuropathy, it is also caused by other metabolic conditions, herpes zoster infection, HIV-related infection, nutritional deficiencies, toxins, and genetic and immune disorders.


In some cases, neuropathy may be a result of cancer that causes a direct compression of the tumor on the nerves, or as a result of chemotherapy or radiation treatment. In addition, compression of the nerves exiting the spine from a compressed or herniated disc is another common cause of neuropathy.
