Doctor insights on:
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

?mononeuropathy: If only one nerve is involved, such as the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, or even femoral nerve, this typically is a focal manifestation of localized compression, and it neither "spreads" or causes death. On occasion, such problems may herald onset of metabolic problems such as diabetes. Why not ask your doctor if any medical problems apply to you? ...Read more
Do we have the technology to visualise nerves to find neuropathies, or is there any in research/development?
Depends on location: Mri certainly can be used to visualize larger nerves, and is particularly good for the cranial nerves. Some of the peripheral nerves like those of the brachial plexus can also be visualized. With special sequences and contrast studies, it is possible to detect abnormalities consistent with neuropathies. There is research being done looking at blood factors (antibodies) that can cause neuropathies. ...Read more
