Apr 21, 2017 · Nerve damage - Spinal nerve root pain due to infection in Spine Health

My right arm and hand continues to still be numb, tingles, and painful. My face around my eyes and forehead are numb off and on. I was bit by a mosquito in the Cayman Islands in Jan. First tests for Zika came back positive. CBC received the blood five weeks later and showed negative results. Mayo ran it again in Feb. showing negative. The Cayman dr. Believe there may have been two virus’s involved and the one overcame the Zika. Mayo says it doesn’t matter what the virus is, it is in the nerve root of your spine and we will deal with that. Many blood test were run and came back negative. I am currently on a high dose (3600 mg daily) of gabapentin. I feel some of the symptoms may be due to the meds. How do you separate the two? Also take Tylenol (1300 mg) twice daily for pain.

Any one dealing with spinal nerve root pain? I had an infection in my spinal nerve roots in Jan. Still many side effects. They are saying nerve damage can take a long time?
