  • Neuropathy Symptoms
    In general, neuropathy symptoms begin with lack of sensation, prickling in the toes or fingers, and continue to extend to the feet and hands, causing burning sensation and severe pain, which is particularly acute at night time. Neuropathy pain is usually symmetrical, meaning one would have the pain on both sides of the body �on both feet and both hands, for example. Peripheral neuropathy usually develops suddenly. Symptoms include numbness, where patients feel as if they are wearing invisible gloves, acute pain, excessive sensitivity to pain, muscle weakness, loss of balance, high or low blood pressure, trouble with moving muscles, lack of sleep due to pain, and atypical sweating. The type of symptom of peripheral neuropathy depends on the nerves that are damaged, and this depends on the origin of the disease. Two causes of neuropathy are diabetes and alcoholism.
