Symptoms to diagnose this disease include the following: discoloration of your skin, decreased sensitivity in and around the infected are to heat and so on, numbness in the hands ands and feet, and muscle weakness.An early diagnosis of this disease is very important. The reason for this is so that the disease will not spread too far and so the medication can cure you in time and you can be deemed cured.
