"Peripheral Neuropathy - FACTS"
Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder of the peripheral nerves-the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin and internal organs. It usually affects the feet/legs and hands, causing weakness, numbness, tingling and chronic severe pain. Peripheral Neuropathy's course is variable; it can come and go, slowly progressing over many years, or it can become severe and debilitating. However, if diagnosed early, it can often be controlled
