What Are the Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the peripheral nerves (the nerves that are found outside the spinal cord and brain) are damaged. The damage may be caused by injury, exposure to toxins, infection or illness. Another common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes.

If you have peripheral neuropathy, you can expect to experience one or more of the following symptoms. If you notice these indications of peripheral neuropathy, discuss your condition with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment:


If you experience any of these symptoms, consult with a neurologist who can recommend treatment to reduce the symptoms and help you manage the neuropathy. Look for a chiropractic neurologist who specializes in treating peripheral nerve problems.
