I am 21 years old and I have been diagnosed with nerve inflammation. I have been to a neuro physician and he has put me on a course of gabapentin and corticosteroids. I have done a nerve conduction studies of my legs and it turned up normal. A blood test also came up normal. and an mri of my spine and also was normal except for the inflammation which persists in my groin. It has caused me a lot of discomfort and pain while sleeping. There is no family history of this condition????
1. How long will it take for the inflammation to die down???
2. Is this permanant ???
1. It may take a few weeks for the inflammation/ neuritis to subside depending on the type.
2. Neuritis is usually temporary but may be progressive in a few cases.
It would be best to discuss the situation, the suggested management plan in detail with your treating neurologist.
Hope this information is helpful.
