At its simplest, neuropathy means nerve damage. When people talk about neuropathy, they are usually referring to peripheral neuropathy or damage to the nerves of your peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system includes the nerves in the majority of your body, outside of your brain and spinal cord.
Peripheral neuropathy is characterized by numbness, tingling, and pain. The pain can take several forms. It may be shooting, “pins and needles,” burning, or even feel like electric shocks. Neuropathic pain can be mild or severe and constant or intermittent.
Neuropathy has a number of various causes. Some of the most common include nerve damage from diabetes, infections, and trauma.
