When neuropathy advances the symptoms of losing the balance become prominent, many people are not able to tell where their feet are. It becomes very easy to trip and fall.There are mainly three types of nerves in the Body so symptoms will vary upon what nerves are involved. When you feel Numbness, Tingling and Pain the sensory nerves are involved.
With sensory nerves being affected you feel pains, some time like electric shocks sensations. People may feel a electric bolt come down the spine into the leg or from the neck or from the feet up the foot. The most common symptom is Numbness or feeling that your feet are sleeping. Symptoms of Autonomic Damage to nerves.
When the autonomic nerves are involved one feels many symptoms the most common is a fall in their blood pressure drop in blood pressure and feeling of dizziness when standing up. This is due to small fiber involvement and in CIDP & GBS small fibers can be involved.
Difficulty in passing stools or constipation is common.; sexual dysfunction with not being able to get a erection or it becomes weak.; There is thinning of the skin , bruising and poor healing. Again this is all due to small fiber involvement.
Finally the Motor Symptoms
In motor symptoms one feels weakness. There is difficulty in walking and there is inability to stand up after one is laying down or sitting on the ground. These people will have drop feet and drop hands, they are unable to lift up their feet or lift up their hands.
One patient presented with numbness of the lips, numbness and pain in the stomach and numbness in the feet and hands. A quick dose of steroids relived all her symptoms in a week.

The most common cause of neuropathy in the World was Leprosy caused by a infection and treated promptly is fully reversible, the one symptom seen in Leprosy is white depigmented spots of the skin. Today autoimmune disease and small fiber are leadind cause & type of neuropathy worlwide.
Inflammatory neuropathy or Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculopathy neuropathy is the most common form of undiagnosed under treated or poorly treated neuropathy in the World. Diabetic neuropathy is a inflmmatory neuropathy too.
