Peripheral Neuropathy? What's that?


One of the most common form of diabetic neuropathy is Peripheral Neuropathy. Your feet and legs are often affected first, followed by your hands and arms. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are often worse at night, and may include:

  • Numbness or reduced ability to feel pain or temperature changes

  • A tingling or burning sensation

  • Sharp pains or cramps

  • Increased sensitivity to touch — for some people, even the weight of a bed sheet can be agonizing

  • Muscle weakness

  • Loss of reflexes, especially in the ankle

  • Loss of balance and coordination

  • Serious foot problems, such as ulcers, infections, deformities, and bone and joint pain #numbness #tingling #sharp #pins #needlees #muscleweakness #neuropathy #diabeticneuropathy #peripheralneuropathy #nervedamage #nervepain #nerve #neurologist #adultneurologist #neurvespecialist #winnielimkhoo #manila #philippines
