Q.

Nerve re-generation

Hi Doc - my wisdoms were extracted about a year ago and I had some nerve damage resulting in a numb lip. Now a yr later it appears to be regenerating. I have a constant itchy feeling in my lip however, there is some sharp burning pain in the lower portion of my jaw - it is driving me crazy. Could it be toothache or is this possibly related to the nerve growth?

It is most likley that the nerve is regenerating.
