There are many causes of pain. We feel pain because some agent is stimulating the "pain" receptors in our skin or body. Most of the time we know exactly what that agent is - physical trauma. However, as we grow older, other things may cause us pain due to peripheral neuropathy (PN). Neuropathy is a term that simply means that something is seriously interfering with the normal metabolism and physiology of a nerve cell. PN means that there is neuropathy outside of the brain and spinal cord.
Other causes of PN besides physical injury are parasites, bacterial and viral infections, malnutrition, autoimmune disorders, inherited conditions, toxins, environmental stressors and the result of diseases like diabetes.
