neuropathy symptoms
Aug 11, 2004

Do symptoms of peripheral neuropathy occur at the same times on both legs? I'm experience some pain on the bottom of my feet and numbness near the ankle. But they happens at different locations and times. Is this PN? Thank you!

Response from Dr. Henry

Most of the time HIV-related or HIV drug related peripheral neuropathy tends to involve both feet and starts with the toes and bottoms of feet before involving the ankles. KH
