Peripheral neuropathy is a group of disorders in which the peripheral nervous system gets damaged due to conditions such as diabetes, shingles, vitamin deficiency, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), spinal cord disorder, poisoning by heavy metals, alchohol, etc. Patients with peripheral neuropathy usually present with symptoms such as numbness, tingling, paresthesia, and weakness of the involved limb. Here, we have discussed a case of a 34-year-old male who had tingling and numbness of the right leg and right foot. However, initially, he was treated as a case of lumbar radiculopathy but was finally managed with tablets oxcarbazepine and Pregabalin in due course of time to which he responded well.
