Peripheral neuropathy is a damage to one or more of your peripheral nerves— the ones in the periphery of your body, such as the nerves in your toes and fingertips —that carry messages to/from the brain and spinal cord from/to the rest of the body.
The damage means that they don't function properly, and the messages that travel between your central and peripheral nervous system are disrupted.
They can vary along with the type of nerves affected and include not only sensations that you feel and mention but also symptoms that you don’t often notice and won’t usually talk about.

Specific symptoms that you can’t feel and often you don’t mention
Additional symptoms which might be related to nerve damage
Symptoms may appear over days, weeks, months or years. Their duration and the ultimate outcome of the neuropathy are linked to the cause of the nerve damage. It is crucial to discover the symptoms and get treated correctly as early as possible!
Nerve impairment can arise from a number of causes, some of which are common, such as diabetes, and others are extremely rare, such as certain inherited disorders.
There are several criteria to classify peripheral neuropathies, that can be divided according to:
The number of nerves affected:
The kind of onset:
The kind of nerves involved:
When multiple separate nerves in disparate areas of the body are affected, either simultaneously or sequentially, it’s the case of "Mononeuropathy multiplex”.
