What is Peripheral Neuritis?

Peripheral Neuropathy, a result of damage to the nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves), often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in the hands and feet. It can also affect other areas and body functions including digestion, urination and circulation. Your peripheral nervous system sends information from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. The peripheral nerves also send sensory information to the central nervous system.

Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolism, inherited causes and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes. People with peripheral neuropathy generally describe the pain as stabbing, burning or tingling. In many cases symptoms improve, especially is caused by a treatable condition. Medications can reduce the pain of peripheral neuropathy.

Signs and Symptoms:

Every nerve in your peripheral system has a specific function, so symptoms depend on the type of nerves affected.

Nerves are classified into:

  • Sensory nerves that receive sensation, such as temperature, pain, vibration, or touch from the skin
  • Motor nerves that control muscle movement
  • Autonomic nerves that control functions such as blood pressure, perspiration, heart rate, digestion and bladder function
  • Gradual onset of numbness, prickling, or tingling in your feet or hands, which can spread upward into your legs and arms
  • Sharp, jabbing, throbbing or burning pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Pain during activities that shouldn’t cause pain, such as pain in your feet when putting weight on them or when they are under a blanket
  • Lack of coordination and falling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Feeling as if you are wearing gloves or socks when you are not wearing anything

Peripheral Neuropathy can affect one nerve (mononeuropathy), two or more nerves in different areas (multiple mononeuropathy), or many nerves (polyneuropathy). Carpal tunnel syndrome is an example of mononeuropathy. Most people with peripheral neuropathy have polyneuropathy.
