Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, is a condition that occurs when there is damage to the peripheral nerves, which transmit signals between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the rest of the body. It can cause various symptoms, such as numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain in the hands, feet, and other areas. The treatment of neuropathy depends on its underlying cause and severity.
