ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Do you have persistent pain in your hands or feet? Are you experiencing unusual sensations in your limbs?

You may have neuropathy. There are different types of neuropathies – peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal – but the most common is peripheral.

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that occurs from damaged or dysfunctional nerves that leaves people with pain, changes in sensation, or weakness in parts of the body – usually in the limbs, but especially the feet.

Causes of peripheral neuropathy can include:
  • Diabetes
  • Injuries
  • Inflammation
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Genetic predisposition


The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy depend on what nerves the neuropathy is affecting affects. These can be sensory nerves, (the nerves that help you interpret sensations) motor nerves, (the nerves that help you move) and autonomic nerves (the nerves that control involuntary functions, like digestion).

Common symptoms include:
  • Pain
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Changes in sensation – feeling like you're wearing gloves or socks when you're not
  • Muscle weakness
  • Decreased range of movement
  • Digestive upset

It's hard to diagnose neuropathy because it has such a range of symptoms that can be mistaken for other conditions. Your doctor can try to find the root cause of your neuropathy and recommend ways to get it under control. For example, diabetics managing their blood sugar or people with vitamin deficiencies taking the needed vitamins.

Steps like these can help, but what if you're still in pain?
