Peripheral Neuropathy Goes By Many Names

Post# A507828 · Wisconsin Dells · Posted by:
If you haven’t heard the term peripheral neuropathy, don’t be surprised. Many of our patients have seen their doctors and gotten a diagnosis for neuropathy without ever hearing that term. Not because the doctor missed it, but because it goes by so many different names.

There are a variety of names for peripheral neuropathy; diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nerve pain, chemotherapy induced neuropathy, and idiopathic neuropathy. There’s a long list of medical names, like polyneuropathy or mononeuropathy or other nerve damage descriptions that are in fact, all peripheral neuropathy. Many causes have been suggested such as autoimmune disorders, diabetes, alcoholism, chemotherapy, Agent Orange, other toxic substances, Lyme disease, and various prescription medications. Often, the cause is not known.
