Medicine For Nerve Damage
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

Capsaicin cream can also help reduce the pain. Anti-inflammatory meds work, but you have to take prescription doses (ibuprofen 400-800 mg three to four times daily or naprosyn (naproxen) 500 mg twice a day) regularly for good effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: If the damage does not cause the nerve to be completely cut, then healing can occur. If a nerve has been cut, it will need to be reconnected in order to grow. Nerve grows about 1 mm/day, so depending on where the injury is, it may take over a year for recovery. It is difficult after a nerve is cut to get 100% recovery, but some return of sensation can be expected after repair. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: A broad question, because there are many ways a nerve can be damaged: compression (carpal tunnel), crush, cut, etc. A "bruised" nerve can heal itself; it grows back at about 1 inch/month. If the nerve is divided, it may occasionally heal, but more often needs surgical repair--and this doesn't always result in return of function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Variable: Generically, if only the coverings of a nerve are involved (myelin), and healing begins, it will take about 4 weeks. If the central portion of the nerve fibre is involved (axon), recovery is the speed of finger nail growth (.1 mm daily). Depends on location, causation, and whether successful treatment is available. ...Read more
Yes and no: A severed or ruptured nerve theoretically can be repaired surgically, but that does not guarantee complete healing and normal function. Nerves do have the ability to regenerate. New connection can be made to bridge the area of injury. This takes time and most healing will occur within the first year after injury. Ultimately, your body will do the best it can to heal the injury. ...Read more
