In brief: Your doctor needs

to findout if you have any cause for your neuropathy.
This can be from many causes - usually diabetes or alcohol or other drugs are the cause. You need to go over with your doctor what possible things in your life are responsible for it. The secondary inflammation suggests you have a compromised immune system or slightly weakened one. People usually do not get inflammation of the muscle.
