What is sensory neuropathy?
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is composed of nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (CNS) that send signals back and forth between the
CNS and other parts of the body.
Sensory neuropathy is damage or disease of the peripheral nerves responsible for sensory signal transmission for touch, temperature, vibration, pain and other sensations to the spinal cord and brain.
