Peripheral Neuropathy 101

Neuropathy

One of the most common types of nerve pain is peripheral neuropathy.  Neuropathy in the hands and feet are common in patients with Diabetes.  Neuropathy is often described as numbness or tingling sensation but it also can be debilitating form of chronic pain.

Sometimes, the sources of peripheral neuropathy can be hard to identify. That’s where nerve conduction studies come in.  Nerve conduction studies are an important diagnostic test to find the root cause of neuropathy.  EMG studies can be used to diagnose any sort of muscle weakness, tingling or numbness that occurs in the arms or legs.
