Peripheral neuropathy refers to numerous conditions that involve damage to the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral system carries messages from the brain, as well as the spinal cord, to the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy could result from several different issues, including physical injury or trauma, systemic autoimmune diseases, and infections. Peripheral neuropathy sufferers often describe the pain associated with the condition as tingling, burning, or even stabbing sensations. In many cases, symptoms improve, especially if the condition that caused the symptoms is treatable.
