Question Nerve regeneration or compression?

I'm just wondering- how do you tell the difference symptom wise?
Thanks in advance for any input!

Re: Nerve regeneration or compression?

as told to me by my neurologist, the classic symptoms of nerve regeneration, are a fuzzy feeling, burning, and gnawing pain. In many cases it comes on with activity. With me I feel perfect for a few hours then the fuzzy feeling comes on and progresses to burning then gnawing unbearable pain.

Re: Nerve regeneration or compression?

I don't know how to tell the difference, but I can tell you that the nerve compression pain lasted and didn't go away. The regeneration pain since my surgery flares up, sometimes very painfully for a few seconds, then ebs off - feels like if you sat on your foot and it went numb and then you walked on it and the pain flared up real painful as the blood came back? Mine feels just like that. Luckily it doesn't last long or I'd be on the floor passed out. Those are percocet days.

Frankly, I imagine the pain is different for each person. I was told that it is good to have nerve pain after compression because it means the nerve isn't dead. The doctor likened the nerve compression to having your finger caught in a door. That finger won't heal until it's free. But even after it's free, it is injured and continues to throb and hurt. Well, nerves take a lot longer to heal than a finger! They grow at about an inch a month.
