Dear , it is good to ask your health related query. Numbness occurred due to damage to cutaneous nerves due to injury. Nerve injury is very slow to heal. It may take many months to get back the sensation. It will come on its own. You just keep patience for few months. Take care.

Try to find out the right diagnosis as its very important in avoiding permanent neural tissue damage. Consult a neurologist who can diagnose it accurately as it can be due to pinches nerve or spinal cord in low back or peripheral neuropathy and immediate treatment can help it from worsening. Good luck.

Do consult your neuro physician for opinion regarding on how long should last it's based on clinical assessment do consult neuro physio to check whether physiotherapy can be resumed at this juncture.

Sir my problem is that my cervical nerve is compressed. I am taking treatment from neurosergon but not relief.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist

Cervical nerve compression may lead to pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, loss of sensation at upper limbs. You did not mention what is your symptom. Any way already you are on steroid which may take care of any inflammatory pain due to compression, and gabapentin is good for neuropathic pain and other symptoms. But dose of gabapentin is little low and it should be in the range of 300-600 mg/day. Another drug like pregabalin and nortriptyline may also be added to therapy if needed. If not releived then nerve block is the way. You should consult your doctor and you may discuss these issues with him.

Numbness may be because of peripheral neuropathy or vascular compromise. The cause of peripheral neuropathy may be deranged blood sugar. Take multivitamin like neurokind plus. Get your blood sugar and colour doppler of lower limbs done. You may consult a physician for detailed physical examination and management.
