Neuropathy or Neuralgia Services

Neuropathy is a nerve condition that often can result in feeling pain, numbness, tingling, swelling, or muscle weakness in different parts of the body. It usually begins in the hands or feet, and gets worse over time.

Neuralgia refers pain along the nerve pathway as a result of damage or irritation to that nerve. This type of pain is typically described as a burning, stabbing, sharp and/or shocking sensation.


Neuropathy may be caused by physical injury, infection, toxic substances, shingles, disease (such as cancer, diabetes, kidney failure, or malnutrition), or drugs, including anticancer drugs.

When the cause of neuropathy is unknown, it is referred to as idiopathic neuropathy. Neuropathy can affect the sensory nerves (numbness, tingling, pain), motor nerves (weakness), and autonomic nerves (bladder control, increased heart rate, sweating).
