Peripheral neuropathy is a neurological condition characterized by damage to the peripheral nerves, which are responsible for transmitting signals between the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This damage disrupts the normal functioning of these nerves, leading to a variety of symptoms that can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and disability.

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by a wide range of factors, including medical conditions, injuries, infections, and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes mellitus, which can lead to nerve damage due to prolonged high blood sugar levels. Other medical conditions associated with peripheral neuropathy include autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, infections such as HIV, hepatitis, and Lyme disease, and metabolic disorders like vitamin deficiencies and kidney disease.

In addition to medical conditions, certain medications and toxins can also damage peripheral nerves and contribute to the development of peripheral neuropathy. Chemotherapy drugs, antiretroviral medications used to treat HIV, and antibiotics are among the medications known to cause peripheral neuropathy as a side effect. Exposure to toxins such as heavy metals, industrial chemicals, and pesticides can also lead to nerve damage.
