Peripheral Neuropathy is a result of nerve damage, which may cause weakness, numbness, tingling, and pain in your hands, feet, and other areas of your body. Nerves are one of the many thin parts in your body that control movement and feeling by carrying messages between the brain and other parts of the body. In approximately 25-50% of all people with peripheral neuropathy, the cause is unknown. These cases may be diagnosed as cryptogenic sensory polyneuropathy (CSPN). CSPN symptoms may become worse with heat, fatigue, and physical activity. The purpose of this research study is in hope of learning about the safety and effectiveness of the medications noritrptyline, duloxetine, pregabalin, and mexiletine in treating CSPN.
