Symptoms Of Nerve Damage In Mouth
My doctor prescribed nortriptyline 25 mg to take by mouth at bedtime for brain/ nerve damage. Is this effective?
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
What do you suggest if my doctor prescribed nortriptyline 25 mg to take by mouth at bedtime for brain/ nerve damage.?
,if the entire retrodiscal tmj tissue breaks could it lead also to nerve damage? ( as numbness on the eye lid,mouth corner etc).
It is possible: because the retrodiscal tissue is vascular and highly innervated. See Orofacial Pain specialist for evaluation and redirection of the condylar loading forces from the retrodiscal tissue to the intermediate zone. ...Read more
Could there be any connection between vagus nerve damage and burning/pins and needles feeling in face (around mouth and nose/lower forehead area) ?
Not really: The short answer is "no." the sensory function of the vagus nerve has no relationship to facial or oral structures. The closest that the vagus nerve comes to any function in that region of the body would have to do mainly with the cough reflex. Trigeminal nerve dysfunction more likely causing symptoms you mentioned. I notice that gbs is listed under "conditions."is that currently or in the past? ...Read more

Can nerve damage affect the whole body, I have a weird (tightening sensation) that affects my head, mostly aggravated in cold weather. ?
Cold sensitivity: On the first question yes - nerves can effect the whole body, but your descripation does not seem to fill that bill. Tightening around the head with cold weather makes me think of muscle contractions. Try a muscle relaxant per your M.D. See if it clears. I like Fioracet for muscle contraction hadaches. If it doesn't clear see a neurologist? Not enough info here for a more specific diagnosis... ...Read more
I can feel the pain from nerve damage run down my head or wherever it is at the moment. Is this pain treatable and what damage is this causing?
Seecondary Headache : Your question is too general, however in your case the most important is to rule out secondary type of headache. These headaches are symptomatic of an underlying cause: head trauma, headache with vascular disorders or without vascular disorders (ex. High CSF pressure) or headaches with non-cephalic infection like viral, bacterial or other. My recommendation is to see headache neurologist. ...Read more

Tighness feeling in my head i don't feel normal for almost 3 months after i took oxyelitepro 1 dosgae could it be a nerve damage in head !
Would be rare : Taking only a dose of a medication usually does not cause such protracted symptoms. However, this supplement has not been vigorously studied in humans in a similar fashion to approved medications. An idiosyncratic reaction is possible. Exam & a better history is needed. Laboratory testing & specific neuroimaging studies may or may not provide the answer but can rue out more serious etiology. ...Read more
