Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that you do not have a serious neurological illness and there is no need to worry.
Yes, peripheral neuritis
is same as peripheral neuropathy
, and this is not going to cause any permanent damage or disability
in your case.
In your case, the neuropathy is due to mechanical pressure over the nerves in the legs, so, avoiding putting pressure would make your nerve better and you would recover.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
