Peripheral neuropathy is the most common form of diabetic neuropathy. Your feet and legs are often affected first, followed by your hands and arms.
Symptoms can include:
- Numbness or reduced ability to feel pain or temperature changes, especially in your feet and toes.
- Tingling or burning feeling
- Sharp, jabbing pain that may be worse at night
- Extreme sensitivity to touch — for some people even the weight of a sheet can be painful
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of reflex response
