Inflammation of the peripheral nerves with pain, loss of function, altered sensation, etc.
Numbness, tingling, burning, and weakness in the extremities This condition usually affects the hands and feet and may occur as a complication of chemotherapy.
A type of nerve damage most commonly affecting the feet and legs.
damage to the peripheral nerves (usually involving the feet, hands, and sometimes the legs, arms, and face) characterized by tingling, burning, or numbness.
A disorder of the nerves, usually involving the feet or hands, and sometimes the legs and arms. Symptoms may include numbness, a tingling or burning sensation, sharp pain, weakness, and abnormal reflexes. In severe cases, paralysis may result.
Numbness, tingling, and/or pain in the hands, feet, legs, and/or arms.
A side effect of some anti-cancer drugs. Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet.
A disorder affecting the outermost branches (i.e., nerves of the outer limbs, hands, and feet) of the nervous system.
Damage to the nerves of the hands and/or feet, causing symptoms ranging from numbness to excruciating pain.
Inflammation, degeneration, or damage of nerves of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS includes nerves that extend from the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to various parts of the body. Peripheral neuropathy may involve motor nerves, causing muscle weakness, and/or sensory nerves, resulting in pain, abnormal sensations, such as numbness or tingling, or other findings.
A disease affecting the portion of the nervous system outside the brain and spinal chord. One or more nerves can be involved, causing sensory loss, muscle weakness and shrinkage, and decreased reflexes.
A condition that describes a problem with the functioning of nerves that are outside the spinal cord. The symptoms may be minor such as numbness, weakness, or burning pain or could be severe.
tingling and numbness in the arms and legs
Pain caused by an injury or other problem with the peripheral nervous system.
Disorder of the nerves that can result in abnormal or decreased sensation, or burning/tingling in the hands and feet.
A general term referring to disorders of peripheral nerves. The peripheral nervous system is made up of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord to all parts of the body. Peripheral neuropathy can be associated with poor nutrition, a number of diseases, and pressure or trauma.
Impairment of peripheral nerve function, usually in the lower extremities. Symptoms include impaired sensation and increased risk of injury.
Damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system characterized by compromised or total loss of sensation commonly caused by diabetes.
classification of disorders that involve damaged or destroyed nerves. These disorders do not include the nerves of the brain or spinal cord.
Damage to the nerves supplying the legs. Sometimes seen in diabetic cats.
A possible side effect of some chemotherapy, characterized by numbness, tingling, or burning in the hands and feet.
a disorder of the nervous system that is associated with numbness or tingling in the arms/hands and legs/feet
Numbness, tingling, or pain in peripheral nerves, usually in hands or feet.
a term used to describe disorders that result in an injury to nerves, usually in the arms or legs. Symptoms may include weakness, numbness, tingling, or pain.
Nerve damage of the limbs, such as those to the hands and the feet.
damage to the sensory nerves of the hands and feet, causing a tingling sensation or a weakened sense of touch in the hands and feet
A generalized â€œslowingâ€ of the peripheral nervous system which is often characterized by decreased sensation in a stocking and glove distribution in the feet and hands. This condition can sometimes be diagnosed with a nerve conduction study.
abnormal or degenerative lesions formed in the peripheral nervous system.
numbness, tingling, burning, and/or weakness in the extremities (usually hands and/or feet). The chemotherapy drugs vinblastine (Hodgkin's) and vincristine (used for some NHLs) and both vinca alkaloid drugs which can cause varying degrees of peripheral neuropathy. More on the Peripheral Neuropathy page.
A possible side effect of chemotherapy that affects the nervous system. Symptoms include tingling, burning, weakness or numbness of the hands or feet.
this refers to the damage that either HIV itself, diabetes, prescribed drugs (for example zalcitabine, stavudine, isoniazid, dapsone,) alcohol and/or other conditions can do to nerves in the feet, legs and even the hands in very severe cases; usually begins as numbness or as if a rock is in one's shoe and gradually increases over days to weeks to months to severe burning pain, sometimes with shock-like or stabbing pain
A disease or degenerative state of the peripheral nerves in which motor, sensory, or vasomotor nerve fibers may be affected and which is marked by muscle weakness and atrophy, pain, and numbness.
any disease, inflamation, or abnormality of the peripheral nervous system. This is considered an AIDS-defining condition in the United States.
A disorder affecting the nerves of primarily the feet and hands. Symptoms may include numbness, tingling or burning sensations, pain, abnormal reflexes, weakness and partial paralysis.
Functional disturbances of the peripheral nerves sometimes caused by chemotherapy, accounting for symptoms such as numbness and tingling sensations in the hands and toes.
Nerve damage, usually affecting the feet and legs; causing pain, numbness, or a tingling feeling.
Refers to disease of the peripheral nerves in the body.
A condition of the peripheral nervous system.
A condition of the nervous system that usually begins in the hands and/or feet with symptoms of numbness, tingling, burning and/or weakness. It can be caused by certain anticancer drugs.
A condition caused by damage to the nerves in the peripheral nervous system which includes nerves that run from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.
Damage to the nervous system. Some chemotherapy drugs can cause this condition. Symptoms include weakness or tingling in the hands and/or feet.
Injury to the nerves that supply sensation to the arms and legs.
Condition characterized by sensory loss, pain, muscle weakness, and wasting of muscle in the hands or legs and feet. It may start with burning or tingling sensations or numbness in the toes and fingers. In severe cases, paralysis may result. Peripheral neuropathy may arise from an HIV-related condition or be the side effect of certain drugs, some of the nucleoside analogues in particular.
A form of nerve degeneration that mainly affects the arms, hands, legs, and feet, peripheral neuropathy has been associated with poor nutrition and diabetes. Because peripheral neuropathy can cause nerve endings to deaden, people with condition often report losing feeling in their fingertips and toes.
Damage to the peripheral nerves, usually involving the feet and hands, and sometimes the legs, arms, and face. Symptoms may include numbness, tingling or burning sensations, pain, abnormal reflexes, weakness, and partial paralysis. Peripheral neuropathy is a side effect of HIV as well as several anti-HIV drugs (e.g., ddC, ddI, and d4T).
Damage to the long nerves radiating from the spine to the arms and legs (see Diabetes).
Peripheral neuropathy is the medical term for damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system, which may be caused either by diseases of the nerve or from the side-effects of systemic illness. Peripheral neuropathies vary in their presentation and origin, and may affect the nerve or the neuromuscular junction.
