|Tingling, numbness, pins & needles, or burning sensation, may be symptoms of neuropathy. When treating peripheral neuropathy, it is important for you to work with your physicians as part of a comprehensive treatment team. Podiatrists are usually at the forefront of establishing the correct diagnosis, as well as assisting in early treatment. Neurologists can be extremely helpful in diagnosis and treatment, especially with more complex cases.
Dr. Sharkey will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuropathy and to answer questions to help you live your life while managing peripheral neuropathy.
Anyone affected by neuropathy is welcome: patients, caregivers, family and friends. We hope to see you there!
