Nerve issues can also cause itchiness, but it doesn't mean the nerves are dying. Lyme and Bart attack the myelin sheath - the protective covering of the nerves- making the nerves send and receive miscommunications from the brain.
Nerves, even when damaged badly or actually severed can regrow in 7 years as well. I discovered this after my previous husband had his arm amputated in an 'at work' injury and had to go through over 9 surgeries to reattach the arm. He did get some very minimal function in the arm and hand back.
I may have possible nerve damage, but until I can stay uninfected for 7 years, there's really no way to tell if it's permanent or not - but likely not, not with the way the body can repair things usually.
