Articles already exist on topic[edit]

Articles already exist for the three types of nerve damage discussed in the article. Might this work better as a part of those articles? janejellyroll 05:29, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

  • no, just add more wikilinks.

good lord could you use lamens terms at all? im trying to get a small idea of it but all you use is 8th year medical terms. this is an encylepdia not a surgeon's reference

I've read tingling sensations after nerve damage is a good thing, nerves are repairing themselves.

Portions of this article seem to be quoted almost exactly from this source[edit] (Scroll or click the link to "Seddon's General Classification of Nerve Injury") 22:38, 1 October 2007 (UTC)


When I initially found this article, I thought the three types of damage were listed in order from either least to most or most to least severe. Instead, they seem to be randomly chosen. Might it work better if there was an order of some sort? or is there an order that I'm missing? Akatari (talk) 03:31, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Electric shock effect on nerve injury[edit]

Dear sir,

During working (am electronic engineer) phase and neutral of 230V ac (alternating current)/50hz was came in my hand. There was injury to both of my hands. After that I found weight in my right hand and had meet to neuro physician and has find sympatic nerve damaege. is it recoverable and I dont know is there any major damages.

Presently I have good sense/control in my hand and legs but some times after extensive work it pains and some times I found pain in whole body as well as in partial head.

age 28.

Contradiction in article[edit]

I'm a medical student, and I've noticed that under "Axonotmesis" there is a contradiction. In the first paragraph, it states "This is a more severe nerve injury with disruption of the neuronal axon, but with maintenance of the myelin sheath." and in the beginning of the third paragraph, "Axonotmesis involves loss of the relative continuity of the axon and its covering of myelin...".

I am no expert, hence I can't verify which is correct. Somebody please rectify this problem. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:40, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Article Readability and Missing information[edit]

I'm not a med student, so I have no idea what this article says. There's nothing in here about the practical effects of nerve damage and very little about what can cause it. (Maybe I'm wrong and that information is just very well hidden?) Is there any way to make this article more accessible to the lay reader? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:33, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Merge with Peripheral nerve injury[edit]

This article as it is currently written covers the same topic as Peripheral nerve injury (and also a lot of overlap with the Seddon's classification article). "Nerve" to me is by definition peripheral, so I think there is a good case for merging the two. --Gccwang (talk) 06:03, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
