Peripheral neuropathy is disease of nerves that are farthest from the center point of the body. This condition affects both hands and feet and changes the way that a nerve functions, producing abnormal and sometimes painful symptoms. In some instances, the fibers of the nerve may be normal, but the lining around the nerve (myelin) that is critical to transmission of normal signals is damaged. The symptoms that many people with peripheral neuropathy describe is burning, tingling, numbness and the feeling that you are wearing a sock, even when barefoot.
