Warning Signs Of Peripheral Neuropathy And When To Seek Medical Care
February 28, 2018
What is peripheral neuropathy?
Generally, peripheral neuropathy develops when your peripheral nerves don’t work properly. The peripheral nervous system connects the nerves from your brain and spinal cord with the rest of your body. These nerves do an important job delivering signals about physical sensations back to your brain. When they are damaged or destroyed, it leads to a disorder that is called peripheral neuropathy.
This condition changes the nerves’ normal functioning. In other words, they may send a pain signal when everything is okay, or on the contrary, they may not send signals of pain when something is harming your body.
