Customer Question

I'm writing with regards ***** ***** nerve damage and would like your advice as to whether or not it sounds potentially serious.
I recently suffered a severe anxiety attack and fear I have sustained nerve damage cause by vigorous, prolonged stimulation of the clitoris.
I have since experienced nonstop constant tingling down both legs and fasciculations all over my body. This has gone on for 4 days now.
Does this sound like neuropraxia or a more serious type of damage? Is it likely to resolve on its own? I've just today started taking 150mg of Voltaren to assist with swelling.

The nerves which supply motor, vasomotor and receive sensory information from the genital area ( pudendal, iliohypogastric and ilioinguinal nerves) do not extend into the thighs or have connections anywhere near the nerves which do supply those areas

So the paresthesis (tingling) and fasciculations (twitching) you are experiencing arise from a metabolic factor effecting your peripheral nerves generally. Anxiety is one of the known stimulants to cause this change, probably the most common but there are others. Please get back to me to discuss this further.
