Can Compression Of Nerve From Swelling Cause Nerve Damage
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

Can degeneration of the C5-C6 vertebra cause episodic syncope due to vagus nerve damage or entrapment?
No but VBI might: VertebroBasilar Insufficiency (VBI) - The vertebral arteries run up the back of the neck thru tunnels (foramen) in the vertebrae (bones of spine). Some neck maneuvers can compress the artery where it passes thru the foramen. While not usually syncope, this can cause vertigo & drop attacks via buckling of the knees usually in older folks with degenerative spinal problems. aka beauty parlor syndrome. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

What are the symptoms of peroneal nerve compressed? Can it occur from ankle sprain? Fibula possibly moved and pinched nerve.
Nerve impingement: Unlikely, that the fibular bone moved to pinch a nerve. The peroneal nerve (superficial peroneal nerve) is located in the skin and can be impinged through swelling resulting from an ankle sprain. The bone, ligaments, muscle, tendons are deeper than the skin, but the swelling associated with injury can cause shooting pain, burning, tingling, and numbness. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Can demyelinating neuropathy be caused from residual nerve damage even if the nerves are no longer being pinched?
Yes it can: deafferentation pain. Deafferentation refers to the partial or total loss of a sensory nerve supply to a particular body area. Normally, when the sensory supply to an area is compromised, one would expect a decrease in sensation and a loss in ability to perceive pain. However, in some cases involving nerve injury, a paradoxical condition arises. See pain management specialist. ...Read more

If the deficiency is very long-lasting, some of the damage can be irreversible. This usually counts for cases that are a year or older for example. ...Read more

Can i expect to have nerve damage to my ankle due to docors not diagnosing my ankle pain and swelling due to os trigonum for 17 months.

Two thoughts...: If the ankle instability remains a chronic problem it can be treated with taping, bracing or surgery. Although you do not give any specifics on the location of the nerve injury there are a minority of ankle sprains that result in traction (neuropraxic) injuries to the superficial peroneal nerve. This is a sensory nerve on the top of the foot. See an orthopaedic surgeon: www.Aaos.Org. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
