Other causes of peripheral neuropathy include:

- Loss of Balance or Coordination
- Feelings of Walking on Pins and Needles

Complications of Neuropathy
The complications associated with neuropathy vary depending on the cause of the nerve damage. Some neuropathies can be fatal. In fact, one of the most common causes of death in people over the age of 60 is due to a fall due to balance issues caused by numb feet. Falls can also lead to broken hips and concussions. Other complications include foot ulcers (open wounds) that develop on the skin and can't heal due to the lack of blood supply to the affected area, walking and balance issues from being unable to feel the feet, trouble sleeping due to pain or tingling, gangrene (tissue death) which could lead to amputation. Early diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy may be able to prevent these and other complications from occurning.
