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
Received permanent nerve damage on back of head and suffer severe headaches would nerve decompression work for this, medicine doesn't.
Highly Variable: My experience in my patients is that for the most part nerve blocks (whether in the lumbar or cervical spines) are not overly successful in terms of duration or amount of relief.
