Can Endometriosis Spread To 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
Not damage but pain: Endo has been well documented on the sciatic nerve and also the obturator nerve. This causes intense, sharp electric shock type pain in the area the nerve goes - the sciatic down the back of the leg, and the obturator typically behind the knee. Once the endo is surgically excised, usually the pain is immediately resolved and there is usually not any permanent nerve damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Rare but possible: Lidocaine is one type of local anesthetic or "numbing medicine". It is used for numbing skin, in nerve blocks, and in epidurals. It should not be directly injected into a large nerve because the nerve could be damaged.
