In brief: Most Rx limited help
The central nervous system is made up of the brain and the spinal cord; all the nerves to the rest of the body stem from the cns, and is called peripheral nervous system; neuropathy (n) is a disorder of the peripheral nerves.
Examples are diabetic neuropathy, alcohol-induced n. And carpal tunnel, a n. Of the median nerve in the wrist. Gabapentin, lyrica, (pregabalin) tegretol etc may help but no cures, yet.
