There are three main subdivisions used to categorize peripheral neuropathy diagnosis. These relate to the kinds of nerves which are causing the problem, and sometimes there can be a crossover between them:
Motor Nerves: Pains related to mobility and flexibility such as walking, lifting, catching, and so forth. These are often accompanied by a decline in strength and balance.
Sensory Nerves: Associated with how we detect texture, heat/cold, rough/smooth, etc. These kinds of nerve damage are most commonly associated with tingling pain, numbness, and ultra-sensitivity.
Automatic Nerves: This form described automatic/involuntary bodily processes such as the circulatory system and digestive tract. Common issues involve sweating problems, nausea/diarrhea/constipation, dizziness, sexual dysfunction, and irregular heartbeat.
