Hello
Peripheral neuropathy is the abnormal sensation in the lower extremity or arms secondary to nerve dysfunction. There are numerous causes including pinched nerves, spinal cord stenosis and diabetes. The availability of a cure depends upon the cause. If one has a pinched nerved caused by spinal cord stenosis, this has a better chance of cure than if neuropathy is caused by long standing poorly controlled diabetes
