Peripheral neuropathy is considered idiopathic when there is no known cause. Idiopathic neuropathy accounts for about 23% of neuropathy sufferers and typically occurs in middle-aged and elderly populations.
Idiopathic neuropathy can be a frustrating and difficult condition due to the unknown nature of the condition. Sometimes the symptoms progress over time and sometimes they remain steady.
The causes of idiopathic neuropathy are unknown.
General treatment is usually focused around managing pain with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications and taking precautions due to loss of sensation.
