What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a common condition when the nerves in the body become damaged.

Symptoms of neuropathy include: "hot feet", tingling, burning and throbbing in the feet, numbness, decreased sensation, and feeling “pins and needles” in your feet.  Diabetics frequently develop nerve pain because of high blood sugar levels and the chronic stress on the nerves.

Neuropathy pain is typically most painful at night, when at rest, but then gets better with physical activity.  Diabetic neuropathy is the most common cause of nerve pain in the feet.
