Headache After Nerve Block
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

I've had a nerve root compressed w/pain for 15 months. I've exhausted conservative options. If I delay surgery could it cause more nerve damage?
Nerve root: compression can cause loss of function if the electrical impulses from the brain and spinal cord cannot reach the the muscles or glands that are anatomically and physiologically connected. Surgery may not restore muscle strength but it can potentially prevent further loss of muscle fibers that rely on their respective paired nerve stimulation to remain viable. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
