Pulse: If you see something pulsating around posterior tibia, it is not a nerve, it is most likely an artery which a normal behavior for arteries.

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. 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

EMG/NCV report says "H-Reflex at left tibial nerve was 40.15. It was significantly prolonged compared to other leg." Can this cause swelling in leg?

Nerve slow, swell no: Slowing nerve will not cause local, swelling. You should ask if the condition causing the nerve slowing might do this, and ask your doctor. There are multiple causes of swelling, most are benign, but some very serious, and you need correct evaluation to determine which is your cause.

Huge cut in tibial nerve and tendon. No sensation on the back of feet. Already stitched by the doctor. Anu other possible surgery that can recover?

Yes: If your tibial nerve has been lacerated, you need immediate nerve repair. You should see a neurosurgeon that specializes in peripheral nerve repair. If I misunderstood and your tibial nerve has been repaired, then give it some time and follow-up with your surgeon.

Bony structure under medial malleolus bilaterally, no pain w/ compression, tibial nerve is palpable, mild flat foot. Could it be misaligned calcaneus?

Bony structure under medial malleolus bilaterally, no pain w/ compression, tibial nerve is palpable, mild flat foot. Could it be misaligned calcaneus?

Misaligned talus: Is usually what happens with what you are describing. This happens in a pronatory foot. Orthotics are good conservative treatment. An implant between the talus and calcaneus is a surgical option.

I have varicose veins wrapped around my tibial nerve with all of pain. Should they be removed. Have had a tarsal tunnel release 10 weeks ago.

I have varicose veins wrapped around my tibial nerve with all of pain. Should they be removed. Have had a tarsal tunnel release 10 weeks ago.

Tibial nerve veins: The TT release is in the area of the tarsal tunnel behind the medial ankle bone. In this area, varicosities may be in communication with the posterior tibial vein which is a deep vein. Sclerotherapy injection could inadvertently cause a deep vein thrombosis. I recommend seeing a board certified vein specialist to evaluate this condition.

Have overpronation/flat feet & wear orthotic Do orthotic stop pressure on tibial nerve & tarsal tunnel (tarsal tunnel syn) 100% or orth shoes recomend?

Tarsal tunnel: Orthotics will help with tarsal tunnel, but can't necessarily alleviate all the pressure. Sometimes the fibrosis/scarring can only be relieved by surgery. Consult your podiatrist for assistance.

Symptoms of sciatic nerve damage after im injection?

Symptoms of sciatic nerve damage after im injection?

Unlikely: This would not be common. The sciatic nerve is a very deep structure and injury from im injection would be difficult unless the patient is very thin. The location if im injection in the gluteus is often in the upper outer region well away from the nerve.

Do symptoms of sciatica indicate nerve damage and what are more severe symptoms of this?

Not necessarily: Sciatica is a common term to describe pain that travels into the leg (s). This is likely not do to nerve damage but compression or irritation of nerves coming from tha back. Severe nerve damage can result in muscle weakness. Pain does not mean damage.

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

Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. Some nerves are purely sensory while others carry both sensory and motor fibers. Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...Read more


Nerve (Definition)

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).
