Brief Answer: Vitamin B 12 supplements. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. The persistent numbness due to a ild nerve damage usually improves gradually on its own. You can start taking methylcobalain supplements at least 1500 micrograms daily at night. Avoid sitting on any hard surfaces. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) may help you in case the symptoms are severe and are affecting your normal daily activities. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
