In brief: Nerve symptoms
Peripheral neuropathy can be secondary to numerous causes.
It is best to uncover the cause and treat directly. To treat symptoms, doctors might use gabapentin, lyrica, (pregabalin) or cymbalta, but a medical food such as metanx might be useful.

In brief: What's the cause ?
Neuropathy simply means nerve injury.
Peripheral nerves control many things including sensation, motor function and automatic things like sweating, goosebumps. Injury to peripheral nerves can occur from diabetes, trauma, and many other metabolic processes as well as many medicines. With so many causes, the key is to find out the cause and the a treatment can be identified.

In brief: See below
The goal of treatment is to allow you to use the affected body part as much as possible.
The cause of the mononeuropathy should be identified and treated as appropriate. Sometimes, no treatment is needed and you will get better on your own. High blood pressure and diabetes can injure an artery, which can often affect a single nerve. The underlying condition should be treated. Steroids may help.
