Peripheral neuropathy is a tingling sensation, pins and needles, that is very, very often quite painful. According
to Dr. Judith Feinberg, it affects the longest nerves first, therefore it always starts in the toes, may progress
upwards to involve the legs and may also involve the fingers. Peripheral means that it occurs in the lymbs. In
general it is symmetric and affects both parts of the body equally. Let me remind you that it occurs in only about
8% of those undergoing ARS.

I had symptom very similiar to this for 2 weeks. Although I tested negative at 25 weeks, im still worried.
