Causes, Symptoms, Treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy

Do you notice a numbness and tingling in your feet or hands, or that restless leg that keeps you from getting a good night's sleep? It could be the early onset of a peripheral neuropathy, a  progressively debilitating nerve condition that can lead to numb feet, leg pain, discomfort, and if left untreated, possible amputation ( loss of a limb). The nerve damage affiliated with a neuropathy can be permanent with drastic affects on your day to day quality of living.
