Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy can result from infections, metabolic problems, or genetic causes. Some common causes include:
- Diabetes - More than half of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy.
- Infection - Certain infections including Lyme disease, shingles, hepatitis B and C, leprosy, diphtheria, and HIV.
- Autoimmune Diseases - Such as lupus, arthritis, or Guillain-Barre syndrome.
- Genetic Disorders - Such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease are hereditary types of neuropathy.
- Tumors - Growths can occur on the nerves or press against the nerves, causing numbness and tingling.
- Other Diseases - These include kidney disease, liver disease, connective tissue disorders, and hypothyroidism.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
Neuropathy affects the nerves. Symptoms usually present themselves in your hands and feet as sensations of pins-and-needles, tingling, and numbness. The condition frequently occurs in diabetic patients and can cause you to lose the sensation in your feet and legs. Because you might not feel a cut or sore spot, an infection is more likely to develop if you suffer from neuropathy. It is important to treat the condition to prevent further foot problems.
