Nerve damage?: From what you describe, there is no clear connection to nerve damage indicated. But even if your Dr is right that you suffer anxiety - it is worth correcting. Consider an eval for CBT psychotherapy where you'll learn skills to manage anxiety. Don't worry or suffer - learn ways to help yourself.
