Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes, although it may sometimes occur in non-diabetics. It refers to nerve damage in the feet, legs, arms, and hands. Most often, patients experience pain, numbness, and tingling in the feet and legs. As the condition progresses, they may also suffer from problems with motor function, muscle weakness, and loss of sense of touch.
