Summary Peripheral neuropathy has reached epidemic proportions in recent years. This condition has numerous causes, but can be associated with diseases such as HIV, alcoholism, diabetes, and lupus and may result from medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Symptoms include pain, numbness, loss of balance, and tingling or burning in the extremities. Although widespread, neuropathy is not well understood, and finding reliable information can be difficult. Written by a leading doctor and a patient-expert, this book covers such diverse topics as what to ask at doctor appointments, how to make the house easier to navigate, where to find a support group, how to use vitamins and herbs for treatment, ways to travel safe, and more.--From publisher description.
