What supplements can treat nerve damage in the penis? is there any safe anti-errection pills? is there anything else I can like hot and cold presses?

None of the above

Groin-testicles
Maintain your health and your penis health will follow. Exercise, don't smoke and take care of any metabolic condition you may have, such as diabetes, cholesterol problems, and hypertension. If you have erection problems, get a check up where you can have detailed answers to your individual questions.

What to do if I got nerve damage at a dentist 10 years ago. last march, I herb or supplement that would help with radiation spill-over and this kind of facial pain?

See an oral surgeon

Pain
If the nerve pain is due to radiation treatment and the pain is intractable, it may be worthwhile to see an oral surgeon or a neurosurgeon to have the nerves in question ablated. If the pain is due to osteoradionecrosis, then barometric oxygen treatment may help. Supplements are probably not going to do anything worthwhile. If they did, they would be prescription medications.

what minerals vitamins or suplements can be useful for tuympanic nerve damage?

Probably none

Nerve_injury
There are no objective, scientific studies that I've seen showing benefits of supplements for tympanic nerve damage. I frequently will take a balanced multivitamin plus some extra vitamin C for general health. Some people think a balanced b complex supplement helps with the nervous system, and some think omega 3s help with brain cell stabilization.

Dr. Barry Press answered:

Can nerve damage repair itself?

Sometimes

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
A broad question, because there are many ways a nerve can be damaged: compression (carpal tunnel), crush, cut, etc. A "bruised" nerve can heal itself; it grows back at about 1 inch/month. If the nerve is divided, it may occasionally heal, but more often needs surgical repair--and this doesn't always result in return of function.

Carpal tunel : can nerve damage repair itself?

Yes

Neuropathy
98% of patients will get improvement in sensation and most complete recovery. It could take up to 3-4 months, so be patient. It also depends on how much damage you have going into the surgery (based on emg/ncv test). Permanent and irreversible nerve damage can also occur for many reasons without decompression of the nerve.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Can inguinal hernia repair nerve damage?

Yes

Nerve injuries are rare complications of open & laparoscopic hernia repair. In open surgery, the nerve that innervates the skin of the groin & thigh is prone to injury, leading to numbness or pain. In laparoscopic repair, a tack holding the mesh can irritate branches of the same nerve, or, more rarely, catch a nerve to the leg. Chronic pain responds to injecting the nerve, if necessary.

Who can repair nerve damage after prostate removal?

No one

Nerve_injury
You can't repair the nerves if they've been damaged but some reports show return of function up to 18 months after surgery if the nerves were spared. In the meantime,1st try the meds; viagra, cialis, levitra. 2nd level would be vacuum pump, MUSE or injections. 3rd level would be a prosthesis. There is help. See your urologist.

I have had three surgeries in a yrear. all in my right ankle region now i have nerve damage. where do i go from here?

Time

Neuropathy
Depending upon the type of nerve "damage", your symptoms may not be permanent. There are three types of nerve injuries: neuropraxia (a bruising of the nerve), axonotmesis (disruption of the axon but sheath is intact) and neurotmesis (interruption of the internal structures of the nerve). Neuropraxia has best prognosis and neurotmesis has worst. Have an EMG/NCV exam by neurologist to evaluate.

Talk with surgeon

In all likelihood your surgeon has splinted the finger to minimize damage. Depending on the type of work you do it might be safe to go back to work. Discuss with your surgeon.

Had nerve entrapment in cervical spine with repair surgery in 2010. Have nerve damage in the medial side of the arm to thumb. I get sporadic spasms in the arm that locks my hand and fingers. Cause?

Needs evaluation.

Nerve_injury
The answer can probably be obtained following an examination by a neurologist, neurologic testing and an MRI of the cervical spine.
