However, you may have symptoms only on one side. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when a nerve or group of nerves outside the brain and spinal cord is injured or malfunctioning. It may be due to a single nerve injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, or because a group of nerves has become defective, such as peripheral neuropathy of the feet. A neurologist discusses what might be causing nighttime pain and how to find relief.
Take care of your feet, especially if you have diabetes. Check your feet every day for signs of blisters, cuts, or calluses. Tight shoes and socks can worsen pain and tingling and can cause sores that don't heal. Wear soft, loose cotton socks and cushioned shoes.

During this exam, the doctor will look at your feet for signs of problems and monitor blood flow and the sensation, or sensation, in your feet. If neuropathy affects the sensitivity of the feet and the ability to feel your feet on the pedals of your car, it is recommended that you do not drive. Other ways to keep your feet cool at night include freezing your socks, using a cold pack or cold water bottle, and pointing a fan at your feet. Peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that usually affects the feet and legs, and sometimes the hands and arms.
