Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

Interpret-please.mild broad-based disc bulge L5-S1 may contact S1 nerve root emerging from dural sac. 2 nerve roots don't appear compressed.

Interpret-please.mild broad-based disc bulge L5-S1 may contact S1 nerve root emerging from dural sac. 2 nerve roots don't appear compressed.

Back pain: It means the person who got this done was complaining of back pain probably with some radiation down one of the legs or perhaps even both. Symptoms of numbness, tingling, or burning pain may also be part of this picture. The MRI report is suggesting there is a bulging disc, which is not a hernia, which may be causing irritation of nerve fibers while not physically squeezing them. ...Read more

Optic nerve crushed, optic nerve transplant?

Optic nerve crushed, optic nerve transplant?

No recourse: A crushed optic nerve (how did this happen to you?) causes permanent changes which will alter the vision sometimes severely. There is currently no treatment known for this and a transplant is not possible. A discussion with a neuro-ophthalmologist would be helpful in this situation. ...Read more

How many genito femoral nerves innervate the cremaster muscle?A single nerve or multiple?

How many genito femoral nerves innervate the cremaster muscle?A single nerve or multiple?

A nerve: The genitofemoral nerve is a single nerve, about the diameter of a piece of spaghetti. It splits into a genital branch and a femoral branch. In males, the genital branch innervates the cremaster muscle and part of the scrotal skin. As with most nerves large enough to have a name, it is composed of a bunch of nerve fibers, also known as axons. ...Read more

Is nerve injury the same as nerve damage or spinal cord damage?

Is nerve injury the same as nerve damage or spinal cord damage?

Possibly: Nerve injury implies some kind of damage to the nerve itself. While spinal cord and nerves are both nervous tissue, nerves typically are structures that have branched outside the spinal cord. Injury to the sciatic nerve, for example, is not considered a spinal cord injury. They are very different structures. ...Read more

Can nerves heal in autoinmune small fibers neuropathy?

Can nerves heal in autoinmune small fibers neuropathy?

Yes: In some cases, marked benefits occur with infusions of ivig, and we know that diabetics who take metanx experience fibre re-growth and multiplication after about 9-12 months. If problem due to treatable condition such as celiac disease or sarcoid, might also see reversal. Uncover the precise mechanism of the disorder, and treat appropriately. ...Read more

Nerve damage after recent dental implants (Inferior Alveolar Nerve)?

Nerve damage after recent dental implants (Inferior Alveolar Nerve)?

Question ?: If you have damage, see the Surgeon. Sometimes this can be helped by removing the implant if it is impinging on the nerve or the proximal space. Sometimes it is inflammation and can be resolved with time and medication. See the Oral Surgeon and get a CT scan to evaluate. It is a risk and occasionally happens, but most often is resolved. Good Luck. ...Read more

Can nerve damage to sciatic nerves repair/heal itself?

Maybe, maybe not: Nerve pain from sciatica almost always (over 90%) heals itself. Nerve damage is less predictable. Some nerve damage is reversible, but the healing process is very slow - years. ...Read more

Could you graft nerve endings to restored foreskin?

Could you graft nerve endings to restored foreskin?

Afraid not: Presume you had a skin graft to restore foreskin. Not possible to graft nerve endings into a graft. They would need to be connected to functional nerves in penile skin next to graft. This is technically impossible. ...Read more

Can burnt skin kill nerve endings?

Can burnt skin kill nerve endings?

Nerve Endings & Burn: There are first and second degree burns, and each is divided into superficial and deep burns. Then there are third degree burns, in which we find that the skin layer is totally damaged and it may even reach to muscles or bones and the skin loses its elasticity and becomes very dry and hard. In this case the patient does not feel much pain because nerve endings are damaged due to burning. ...Read more

If bulging disc pressing against thecal sac/transversing nerve extrudes downward, does nucleus flow down pressing against nerve or can it seep, around nerve? If seep, can traction pull damage nerve?

If bulging disc pressing against thecal sac/transversing nerve extrudes downward, does nucleus flow down pressing against nerve or can it seep, around nerve? If seep, can traction pull damage nerve?

Disc herniation: When a disc herniates and causes pressure against a nerve, pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness can result. Not only can the disc material cause mechanical compression, but it can also incite an inflammatory reaction that can irritate the neural elements. Traction or tension on a nerve that may be tethered against a herniated disc can also cause sciatic-type pain from a bow-stringing effect. ...Read more
