Overview of common peripheral nerve diseases, along with their causes, symptoms, and treatment options:
Peripheral nerve injury or disease can be a significant source of morbidity, often leading to pain, functional limitations and reduced quality of life. It is essential to consult a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan if you suspect you have a peripheral nerve condition as some conditions can cause permanent nerve injury if left untreated, which can result in paralysis of the limb affected. Treatment options vary depending on the specific condition, its severity, and the patient’s overall health.
