Neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the nerves. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, hypersensitivity, muscle weakness, and wasting. There are several underlying causes of neuropathy. Diabetes is the most prevalent cause and is responsible for more than 60 percent of neuropathy cases, another 20 percent is of unknown origin, with the remaining 20 percent arising out of injuries, such as pinched nerves, and repetitive injuries such as carpal tunnel. Decreased blood supply to an area can also cause neuropathy, along with chemotherapy, and illnesses that affect the immune system. Neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the nerve axons. Which are how impulses are carried to cells, when there is damage to the myelin sheath, which is the protective covering of the axon.
