5. Increased infections and wounds:

What happens if a particular part is completely numb? You will not feel the wounds, cuts and even damage happening to that particular part. In almost all the cases of peripheral neuropathy, you fail to feel the pain and temperatures properly at that part.

So, this can severely result in unknowingly burning or hurting yourself. This is the reason, many peripheral neuropathy patients suffer foot ulcers and deep cuts. Moreover, if he or she is a diabetes patient, they fail to heal and can get infected completely.

6. Blood pressure and Heart problems:
