Neuropathy.

I used to think that had something to do with my mind…  like neurological.

So what is peripheral neuropathy?

It’s actual damage to nerves OUTSIDE of your brain and spinal cord, and it doesn’t deal with your central nervous system.  It effects:

– Motor nerves (things we are in control of purposefully)
– Sensory nerves (including messages to the brain regarding heat, cold and pain)

What can cause it?  SO many things… it’s endless really.  For instance, with me – I’m going to guess it’s a lack of Vit B… but I’m sure it’s that, and other things.  Physical trauma…
