Peripheral neuropathy is very common. Because there are many
types and causes of neuropathy and doctors don’t always agree on
the definition, the exact incidence is not known.
Some people are more likely to inherit neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a problem with the nerves that carry
information to and from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of
the body. This can produce pain, loss of sensation, and an
inability to control muscles.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
One set of peripheral nerves relays information from your
central nervous system to muscles and other organs. A second set
relays information from your skin, joints, and other organs back
to your central nervous system. Peripheral neuropathy means these nerves don’t work properly.
Peripheral neuropathy may involve damage to a single nerve or
nerve group, or it may affect multiple nerves (polyneuropathy).
There are many reasons for nerves to malfunction. In many cases,
no cause can be found.
Nerve damage may be
Diseases that run in families (hereditary disorders), such as:
Diseases that affect the whole body (systemic or metabolic disorders)
•Dietary deficiencies (especially vitamin B12)
•Excessive alcohol use
•Uremia (from kidney failure)
Infections or inflammation, including:
•Systemic lupus erythematosus
Exposure to poisonous substances such as:
•Glue sniffing or inhaling other toxic compounds
•Heavy metals (lead, arsenic, and mercury are most common)
•Industrial chemicals — especially solvents
•Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
•Compression of a nerve by nearby body structures or by casts,
splints, braces, crutches, or other devices
•Decreased oxygen and blood flow (ischemia)
•Prolonged exposure to cold temperatures
•Prolonged pressure on a nerve (such as a long surgery)
•Trauma to a nerve
The symptoms depend on which type of nerve is affected. The
three main types of nerves are:
•Nerves that carry sensations (sensory)
•Nerves that control muscles (motor)
•Nerves that carry information to organs and glands (autonomic)
Neuropathy can affect any one or a combination of all three
types of nerves. Symptoms also depend on whether the condition
affects one nerve, several nerves, or the whole body. When the
whole body is affected, it is called polyneuropathy.
Longer nerves are more easily injured than shorter ones, so it
is common to have earlier or worse symptoms in the legs and feet
than in the hands and arms.
•Changes in sensation
•Inability to determine joint position, which causes lack of
•Tingling or numbness
With many neuropathies, sensation changes begin in the toes and
move toward the center of the body. Other areas become involved
as the condition gets worse. Diabetes is a common cause of
Call your health care provider if you have symptoms of
peripheral neuropathy. In all cases, early diagnosis and
treatment increases the chance of controlling symptoms.
Nerve pain, such as that caused by peripheral neuropathy, can be
difficult to control. If your pain is severe, a pain specialist
may be able to suggest helpful approaches.
Emergency symptoms include:
•Irregular or rapid heartbeat
