Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Peripheral neuropathy is defined as weakness, numbness, and pain from nerve damage, usually in the hands and feet.

Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy might include the gradual onset of numbness, prickling or tingling in your feet or hands, which can spread upward into your legs and arms. Sharp, jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain. Extreme sensitivity to touch.
