A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut.

Unusual presentation: Although I have seen zoster present in mysterious ways, this is unusual. The fact that you have a referral neuropathy, makes me think you have a lot more going on than just a zoster. If you're ign tider for herpes is positive, it is possible that the herpes may have caused your peripheral neuropathy.

If there is, your doctor may refer you to a rheumatologist/internal medicine doctor. If it is normal, then a neurologist may be more appropriate. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Sporadic sharp pain on coccyx. Dr thot nerve damage. Xray found free floatin coccyx. Specialist reviewed. suggests mri-erosion is rare for age. Worry?

Coccyx pain: Without the films, these are my thoughts: it is more likely you hurt the coccyx once, and that it did not heal. The coccyx (or tail bone) is very tender, and can commonly be a source of injury or pain. There's no need to worry though, and the mri would probably clear up whatever is happening back there, so you won't have to think about it. Above all, don't worry. Does anything help it? ...Read more
