Neuropathic Pain Q & A

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy, or peripheral neuropathy, is a form of nerve damage in the extremities that causes weakness, numbness, and pain. It is most commonly a result of diabetes, but can also occur from chemotherapy treatment, HIV, a peripheral nerve injury, or nerve damage from shingles. Metabolic disorders, such as hypoglycemia or kidney failure, can result in neuropathy, as can many autoimmune disorders including lupus, celiac disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Other culprits can include alcoholism, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal disorders, and hereditary conditions.

What are the symptoms of neuropathy?

Symptoms of neuropathy vary depending on the individual and the underlying condition, but the most common symptoms include temporary or permanent numbness, tingling, prickling, or a burning sensation. Additional possible neuropathic symptoms include:

  • Increased sensitivity to touch
  • Muscle weakness or paralysis
  • Dysfunction in organs or glands
  • Digestive problems and/or difficulty urinating
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
