Peripheral neuropathy, or “nerve damage,” affects more than 20 million Americans. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes. In fact, about 50% of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy.
Although it is one of the most common chronic neurological diseases in the U.S., neuropathy is often misunderstood, misdiagnosed and under diagnosed, and inadequately treated.
Early warning signs can include numbness and pain in your hands and feet, typically described as tingling or burning. If ignored, these symptoms can progress to persistent weakness, loss of sensation, chronic pain, and disability.
Join Paul Twydell, DO, a board-certified neurologist and neuromuscular medicine specialist, to learn what you can do to prevent, detect, treat and manage peripheral neuropathy.
