Peripheral neuropathy can have a number of causes. Probably the most common is mechanical pressure on a nerve. Under compression, the first nerve fibers to lose function are the ones that conduct sensation. As the sensory fibers "go to sleep," the first signal perceived is the familiar "pins-and-needles" tingling sensation. And good luck.Health Question & Answer
