Its been in my fathers side of the family for many generations. My grandmother, her kids and now Im begening to feel the effects. Any oyther info would be great thanx.
Neuropathy is just a general medical term for any condition that affects the nervous system.
"Peripheral neuropathy" is any condition affecting the peripheral nerves, such as in the legs. A common cause of peripheral neuropathy is Diabetes. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause it. Both can 'run in families'.
What has your doctor told you about this 'family' condition?
I can't really offer much more than this.
