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
Sometimes: It depends on the degree of the compression and the duration of the compression. Often when a nerve is first pinched, there will be a lot of pain associated with that. Then the pain is replaced by numbness. Even though the patient feels better with decreased pain, this means that the nerve is much sicker because it can no longer transmit signals. Relief of the compression at may or may not help. ...Read more

Good question: I wish I could remember. When I have a question about that, I get out my old anatomy book from med school and look it up. The book is 1100 pages long. I refer to it frequently when I want to relearn what peripheral nerve innervates what structure. For laypeople I recommend Frank Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy. It's available from Amazon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can laproscopic surgery on the right shoulder result in vitamin deficiency, fibromyslgia snd peripheral neuropathy?
No!!!: Laparoscopic surgery regardless of which body part is operated upon will not lead to vitamin deficiency. There are different causes of different vitamin deficiencies eg nutrition vs inadequate sun exposure. Likewise, laparoscopic surgery will not "cause" fibromyalgia. I suppose that a nerve injury can occur leading to chronic neuropathic pain but that can happen regardless of surgical technique. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pinched nerve 1yr ago/lost most of lft tricept..Still have little feeling in 3 fingers..Can I rebuild arm/& will numbness stop?
There is a chance: Since you are still able to feel it, the nerve is still functional. I am not sure if you already had injection/therapy, or nerve decompression surgery done yet. If you have not had the surgery, you may need this done to regain your tricep. Don't wait too long because the neuropathy (degeneration of the nerve) maybe irreversible. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Injury location: Although specific sensory branches go to skin and motor branches go to muscle, the main nerve trunks contain both. These large cables split off smaller branches that contain only sensory or motor nerve cells. If an injury occurs on the skin, sensantion nearby is affected. If a small motor nerve is injured, nearby muscles are paralyzed. But if a large nerve is injured, both can occur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Numbness tingling in index finger since 2012. No relief after carpel tunnel surgery. Mri showed nerve damage in neck. Can anything be done?
Not directly: The sciatic nerve runs deep to the gluteus maximus and piriformis muscles after the nerve exits the pelvis. An injury mechanism that causes injury to these muscles could conceivably impact the sciatic nerve as well. Otherwise , an injury to the gmax muscle does not necessarily "cause" nerve damage. ...Read more
Can nerve pain med help post op pain for digit widget when there's ulnar nerve damage, claw hand, crps?
It can: Neuropathic pain is notoriously difficult to treat. Treatment involves many different aspects such as medications, nerve block injections, therapy, even surgery.

Crps itself usually requires a significant and multi-disciplinary treatment plan, and it is best treated aggressively and quickly/early! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Causes neuropathy: But unusual to have an isolated mononeuropathy over arm and abdomen. If indeed this pattern of isolated nerve involvement fits a mono neuritis multiplex, one would wonder about another responsible disorder such as diabetes or arteritis. Vit B-12 problems are typically symmetrical and distal. Might investigate all of this further with your neurologist. ...Read more
