Neuropathy can occur when nerves in your peripheral nervous system (the part of your nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord) are damaged. The condition is also referred to as peripheral neuropathy.

With neuropathy, you may experience pain and/or numbness in your hands and feet. Neuropathy can result from traumatic injury, infection, exposure to toxins and metabolic disorders, including diabetes.
