My mom gets peripheral neuropathy, so am I likely to get it later?

Depends. Peripheral neuropathy is caused by things like poorly-controlled diabetes and peripheral artery disease. If you have problems like these then you are more likely to have peripheral neuropathy. However, this has nothing to do with you're mom's peripheral neuropathy. The take-home is manage the risk factors and you will reduce your chances of having a problem.
Depends. Pwripheral neuropathy has many causes including diabetes, chemo therapy, and chemical exposure. The reason for your moms neuropathy will have some tie to your risk. If it is work/toxin exposure and you have same job, then yes. If it is chemotherapy induced and you never got chemo then no.
