I had a sliped and fall accident 3 moths ago. I fell on the left side of my face and brusied the trigeminal nerve per neurologist dignosis.  I'm taking Lyrica for the sharp pain under my left eye. I have being told that the nerve will regenerate. How long that it usually takes ?.


This discussion is related to Will bruised nerve regenerate fully?.

Hi,
A nerve regenerates within 6 months but sometimes it may take longer .In that case the period of regeneration may be 1 yr .Please take Cap Renerve and a good diet rich in multivitamins and multimineral supplements .  Hope this helps you .  Take care and regards .

Thanks for your comment; it is very helpful to me. When I felt, I also broke my front tooth on the left side. Would this make the trigeminal nerve pain and numbness take longer to go away?

Hi,
There is no chance that the broken tooth may make the nerve pain last longer but the tooth itself may get infected and cause pain and swelling at the affected area adding to your pain . Please consult a dentist to either treat the tooth or remove it if it is broken badly . Take care !
