Peripheral Neuropathies are diseases that affect nerve fibres in the arms and legs. This can leads to numbness, pain, weakness and poor balance. They are quite common in the general population and is a common complication of diabetes for example. On occasion, peripheral neuropathies can be due to a rare condition, such as a genetic disorder or a overactive immune system.
