A peripheral neurpathy can be due to a variety of things, rsd can be ralted to an injured nerve or nerves, hormonal and metabolic problems including thyroid diseease and diabetes can affect circulation, nerve tissue and dryness of skin. Circulation conditions and temperture realted disorders can occur. Smoking can bring on a certain level of problems as well as certain medications

it is equally inport to rule out anything focal such as a peripheral nerve compression like carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel or a simple tendonitsi that aslo may be acting as an underlying trigger for your problem.

I've been suffering from mild tendonitis on my left hand the past year and a half and I've been wondering how I could treat thanks :)?
