Loss or disturbance of sensation in hands, feet, and limbs are integral to “hereditary neuropathy” which refers to a group of debilitating genetic diseases, that currently has no cure, but over time may cause a wasting of the muscles, especially in the extremities. In many cases, these diseases lie dormant, exhibiting no symptoms. In other cases, these diseases can impair the motor, sensory, and peripheral nerves of the hands and feet. There are many types of hereditary neuropathies. Symptom onset and severity differ, even within the same family. Nonetheless, hereditary neuropathies are all progressive; patients report losing strength, agility, dexterity, and even the ability to walk without assistance, making the diseases hard to accept on a psychological basis as well as a physical one.
