Nerve Damage (Definition)

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.

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

Was taking 5400 mg of DLPA daily for about 2 weeks. Started feeling the symptoms of nerve damage (pain, numbness, tingling). Could this be permanent?

Unlikely: Some toxic neuropathies can be reversed if the offending agent can be removed. The issue is what type of damage was caused and how severe it is. This will determine if and how long it will take to regenerate. If you had intermittent symptoms this is the mildest form. If the symptoms were persistent only time will tell ...Read more
