A discussion of peripheral neuropathy, its causes, and how peripheral neuropathy affects feet.

The feet in particular can be affected, and symptoms can include numbness, burning, tingling, or shooting pain. This disease is found in diabetes, with nutritional deficiencies, thyroid disease, spine disease, and even on it own.
