    Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, generally refers to a range of health problems involving damage to the peripheral nerves — the complex network of nerves that transmit signals between the central nervous system (the brain and spine) and the rest of the body. This can lead to symptoms such as pain, weakness, numbness, or other changes in sensation, often in the hands and feet. Neuropathies can be caused by various factors including certain diseases or conditions, infections, exposure to toxins, genetic predisposition, or certain medications or treatments.
