What Is Neuropathy?
Dysfunctional or damaged nerves create a condition called neuropathy. It’s often called peripheral neuropathy because it points to a problem in your peripheral nervous system: all the nerves outside of your spinal cord and brain. Peripheral neuropathy leads to symptoms that include:
- Pins and needles sensations
- Weakness in a specific area of the body
- Sharp, stabbing pains
- Burning and throbbing pain
