Neuropathy is any kind of pain or numbness of the nervous system whenever there is a nervous dysfunction or damage such as stroke or injury. A stroke, also known as a brain attack or cerebrovascular accident, happens when there is interrupted or reduced blood supply to the brain. This lowers the oxygen supply to the brain and causes neuronal cell death. Several disabilities occur due to a stroke such as paralysis, speech and vision impairment, swallowing problem, physical disabilities, emotional and cognitive deficits. Central neuropathy is also linked with stroke.
Peripheral neuropathy is pain or numbness in one area of the body, typically in the hands and feet. This condition is caused by damage to nerves and nerve endings. Localised injuries, accidents, repetitive stress, autoimmune disease, diabetes, and infections can damage the peripheral nerves.
