Peripheral Neuropathy Signs versus Symptoms
In medicine signs and symptoms are not the same thing. For example with peripheral neuropathy someone might complain of numbness, tingling, or hot and cold sensations in the foot but on physical exam they may have loss of pin prick or vibratory sense up to the knee. By performing a careful evaluation of the peripheral neuropathy signs, rather then just relying on symptoms, a more accurate assessment can be made.
