Nerve Endings In Hands
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Come again?: I'm sorry, your question is not clear. Nerves aren't like electrical wires. They don't really "cross." Some nerves do communicate physically through connections called anastomoses, but the nerves aren't talking to each other. The nerve impulses always go between the brain and a muscle or a sensory structure, either outbound or inbound. Nerves don't "short circuit" like electrical circuits. ...Read more

Shocks: It's more of a slang term describing a sensation felt typically along a specific nerve in the hand/upper extremity. They usually occur when that specific nerve is irritated, compressed, or most commonly I see it after nerve decompression surgery while the nerve is "waking up." the nerve becomes hypersensitive and creates a shock like sensation along the path of nerve.

Yes: Nerve injuries do recover if the ends of the severed nerve are sewn together by a hand surgeon. Beware that it is a very slow process. Nerves grow back 1 inch per month from the cut end out to the finger tips, so expect months before feeling may start to come back, though initial feeling may be more like the pins and needles of a nerve waking up before any quality sensation comes back. ...Read more

Stingers: Is it healing from an injury, after surgery? A short answer is that nerves sprout new axons to establish a re connection once injured, and this could cause aberrant signalling until the sprouts have full functioning. The insulation (myelin) on a nerve also has to be built back up so after injury also, and until that happens the nerve is also not functioning properly. ...Read more

Frostbite: Actually frost-bite associated pain does depend on nerve damage. In fact every sensation you experience in life depends on nerve function. The function may excessive or underactive but the nerve is still functioning for you to feel anything. Transmitting unpleasant or undesirable sensation does not imply that the nerve is damaged but suggests something is going wrong somewhere. ...Read more

Nerves of the hand:
The hand has many nerves in it- nerves guide movement and provide a conduit for sensation. Nerves are more dense in the finger tips than in most other parts of the body.
The main nerves in the hand are the radial, ulnar and median nerves. They have smaller branches that lead to the fingers.

I'd like to see it: Trapping nerves doesn't result in limbs "shaking." If you've pain you may've broken something. Fine tremulousness based on this is a possibility.
