What is Polyneuropathy?

Description of the Disease

Polyneuropathy is a condition that affects multiple nerves simultaneously, leading to disruption of the normal functioning of the nervous system. This condition can occur on its own or be a symptom of other diseases.

  • Feeling of numbness or burning in the extremities
  • Decreased sensitivity to touch and pain
  • Muscle weakness


Polyneuropathy can be caused by various factors, including diabetes, alcohol intoxication, infections, and certain autoimmune diseases.


To diagnose polyneuropathy, a doctor may perform electromyography and nerve biopsy.


Treatment of polyneuropathy depends on its cause, but may include physical therapy, medication to alleviate symptoms, and treatment of the underlying disease.


Prevention of polyneuropathy involves preventing its causes, such as maintaining normal blood sugar levels in diabetes and moderate alcohol consumption.


For the diagnosis and treatment of polyneuropathy, it is advisable to consult a neurologist or neurosurgeon.
