Nerve damage if ganglion cyst ruptures?

Nerve Damage (Definition)

A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

Which is more likely to cause caudal equina syndrome: a tarvol cyst, a lesion in thecal sac at l4, or nerve damage from tvt bladder sling and removal?

Which is more likely to cause caudal equina syndrome: a tarvol cyst, a lesion in thecal sac at l4, or nerve damage from tvt bladder sling and removal?

Maybe combo, prob L4: The tarlov cyst is like a pimple or a freckle, this is usually nothing but it might be taking up space "crowding" the nearby tissues, although unlikely. If there is a lesion in the thecal sac, this is the most likely cause, but I'm not knowing what the "lesion" is. The bladder sling shouldn't be able to contribute. ...Read more

Burning sensation feeling on skin over pelvic area. No other symptoms. Is this nerve damage or just caused from health anxiety and stress? Ovarian cyst

Burning sensation feeling on skin over pelvic area. No other symptoms. Is this nerve damage or just caused from health anxiety and stress? Ovarian cyst

It depends: The pelvic area is from navel to upper thighs. Are you saying lower abdomen or lower back/sacral area; deep or on the skin? Contact dermatitis may be one cause due to detergent or fabric softener in your panties or some other chemicals in that area. If it is not painful to press on lower belly, move the hips or lower back, bend or extend, then not likely internal or spine/joint related. ...Read more

2nd opinion for spinal accessory nerve damage had surgery in jan. To remove a branchial cleft cyst and have damage to spinal nerve, had nerve test done and was told physical therapy and see what happens after 3 months. Should I get a second opinion or wha

2nd opinion for spinal accessory nerve damage had surgery in jan. To remove a branchial cleft cyst and have damage to spinal nerve, had nerve test done and was told physical therapy and see what happens after 3 months. Should I get a second opinion or wha

The: The spinal accessory nerve, also known as "cranial nerve xi" (xi meaning "eleven") is a nerve in the region of the neck that moves two important muscles: the trapezius and the sternocleidomastoid. The trapezius is the muscle that (among other things) shrugs the shoulder. The sternocleidomastoid is a muscle that (among other things) tilts the head. These are important functions, and damage to the nerve can be significant depending on other circumstances.

While most peripheral nerve injuries do get better, especially with physical therapy, some do not. Even if recovery is incomplete, there may be no reduced ability to perform routine activities. Loss of ability is a concept that is relative: a graphic artist might have different demands for those muscles than a circus performer, for example.

The decision to get a second opinion is often based on the severity of problems, the complexity of problems, or the degree of trust in the competency of the physician or surgeon who offered the first opinion. Most doctors welcome the decision of a patient to get a second opinion, particularly if the stakes are high. ...Read more

Can peripheral neuropathy cause bilateral tarlov cysts? Or vice versa, what's the difference between bilateral tarlov cysts and one-sided tarlov cysts?

None of the above: Tarlov cysts are normally found incidentally on MRI studies. They are peri-neural cysts found adjacent to the spine, where nerve roots exit. They normally cause no symptoms.

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that may cause pain, numbness, or weakness. It is often due to high blood sugar. It affects the nerve itself, and rarely is a Tarlov cyst involved. ...Read more

A few months ago I found out tht I had an ovairan cyst it ruptured on its own but here 4 mos. Later I have the same pain tht caused me to go into the ER the last time. I was wondering if it is another cyst and if so should I go into the ER again?

Should get checked: If a person has a known history of ovarian cysts, and one ruptured (with internal pain and bleeding) leading her to the er, it would be a good idea to get checked if the same symptoms occurred again. If one's doctor is available by phone or is in his office, contacting the doctor would be the first thing to do. If no doctor is available, the er would be the place to go. ...Read more

Rarely a small cyst can grow bigger and fill with fluid. Ovaries can make cysts from 3cm to 20cm, even bigger. What you describe=normal. ...Read more
