Symptoms related to neuropathy (also known as peripheral neuropathy) can often be unpredictable and vary person to person. Depending on the type of neuropathy that you have, your symptoms can be more noticeable than in others.
It is important to know the basic symptoms of neuropathy so that when pain arises, you know when you need to take action.
Chronic pain is often from a condition such as a disease, traumatic injury, an infection, or the damaging act of peripheral nerves. Many patients who have diabetes often suffer from symptoms of neuropathy.
Symptoms of Neuropathy Include:
- Tingling, numbness, or prickling feeling that starts in your hands or feet, and can spread upward into your arms and legs
