Ilioinguinal Nerve Entrapment Treatment
Depends on severity!: Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with splinting at night, streroid injections, and outpatient surgery. My bias is to get an injection first. I would get nerve conduction studies prior to surgery. Also, the median nerve can be trapped higher up: this is called pronator teres syndrome, and is above the wrist and immeidately below the elbow.

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).

Discuss in detail with the doc recommending the procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can the ilioinguinal nerve and genital branch of genitofemoral nerve be evaluated by MRI for any problems?
Not really: The nerves are typically too small to see on mri. Still, we sometimes do an MRI of the pelvis to ensure there aren't any masses or other problems that could be affecting the nerves there. ...Read more
