Neurology
In brief: Find cause, treat sx
The primary thing to do for a neuropathy is to try to identify an underlying cause, usually with a combination of exam findings, blood tests, and electrophysiological studies.
If no reversible cause is found, there are multiple medications that can help reduce nerve pain, including some seizure medications, antidepressants, and topical anesthetics. A neurologist can guide workup and treatment.
