Neuropathy?: I will guess that you are referring to peripheral neuropathy. This is a condition where the peripheral nerves do not function normally. Symptoms may include loss of sensation, numbness or "incorrect" sensations arising from the affected areas. This is often seen in diabetes, where the blood flow to the peripheral nerves (through the vasa nevrorum) is reduced or completely blocked.

Peripheral Neuropath: Is a change in sensation like burning, pain, anesthesia ( lack of sensation) sensations of electricity, vibration etc.) due to alterations in the peripheral nerves. Some common causes are..Diabetes mellitus, lack of vitamin b12, intoxications with heavy metals like arsenic, plumb, hg.Also demelinating diseases ( neurological disorders) may cause it. Sometimes we do not find the cause ( idiopathic.

Neuropathy: The symptoms depend of which nerves are affected. Sensory nerves affected tend to cause tingling, numbness, shooting pains, temperature changes, among others. Neuropathy of an optic nerve would affect vision . There are several causes: vitamin B12 deficiency, diabetes, nerve root pinching, chemical toxins, hypertension, many more. Neurologists specialize in this diagnosis.

Autonomic neuropathy: Perhaps you mean autonomic neuropathy. This refers to a malfunction of the nerves in charge of automatic control of your body functions (like sweating, heart rate, blood vessel constriction in response to changes of position). In conditions like uncontrolled diabetes with autonomic neuropathy, nerves do not work properly and patients can develop dizziness or fainting when standing up quickly.

Yes: Yes. The list of drugs is quite long and includes antibiotics, antifungals, chemotherapy, drugs used for heart disease, skin/joint disease etc. I think it is unlikely for these drugs to cause neuropathy after a single dose with the exception of chemotherapy. https://www.foundationforpn.org/livingwithperipheralneuropathy/causes/drugscausingperipheralneuropathy.cfm.

Depends: The decision to hospitalize is complex and depends on your function, safety, what is your home situation, how much medical care options you have, your knowledge and comfort level, what kind of hospital you have etc. I'd discuss this with your primary care provider.

Sometimes: It depends somewhat on the cause. Alcohol is a common cause and the neuropathy may improve if the patient stops drinking. Other times, neuropathy does not improve and may get worse with time or stay the same.
