Peripheral neuritis same as polyneuritis; peripheral neuropathy; Multiple Peripheral Neuritis; Peripheral Neuritis; Polyneuritis, Peripheral; Polyneuropathy, Peripheral; The peripheral nervous system consists of all the motor and sensory nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (ie, the nerves outside the central nervous system); The symptoms and physical findings associated with peripheral neuropathies may be extremely complex and vary greatly from case to case; Common findings associated with peripheral neuropathy may include muscle weakness; pain; numbness; redness; and/or burning or tingling sensations in the affected areas, especially the arms and legs (extremities); with symptoms and signs of many nerves simultaneously (polyneuropathy, polyneuritis, or multiple peripheral neuritis); There are many different causes of peripheral neuropathy including trauma, fracture, penetrating injuries, and/or an underlying disease process-------[NORD]-------------
