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

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

Possibly: There are many causes of neuropathy some of which are reversible ( for example: significant hypothyroidism can be associated with neuropathies which can resolve with thyroid replacement Rx). The same is true for certain vitamin deficiency states. You should consider seeing a Neurologist to determine what type of neuropathy you have/What's causing it/what therapy could help. ...Read more
