As a result of damaged peripheral nerves, peripheral neuropathy can occur causing symptoms like weakness, numbness, burning, and tingling in the hands and feet as well as other parts of the body. Traumatic injuries, diabetes, and even some exposure to toxins can cause peripheral nerve damage.
Once damage to the nerve occurs, the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are gradual and worsen with time.
It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to aid in the prevention of damage to those specific nerves.

Neuromas are enlarged, benign growth of nerves, typically found between the third and fourth toe. Enlargement is caused by tissue rubbing against the nerves, oftentimes caused by poorly fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure.
Symptoms may include pain in the ball of the foot, sensations of thickness, burning, or numbness.
Treatments include wearing corrective shoes, orthotics, and cortisone injections. In severe cases, surgery may be recommended.
