Ask a Neurologist and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi Jonathon. You should ask your doctor to order nerve conduction tests (i.e. NCV/EMG). This is the best way to determine if there is nerve damage and, if so, where it is coming from and how severe it is. Keep in mind that peripheral nerves can repair and regenerate quite well, if the cause is identified and addressed before the nerve dies. Get prompt attention to this. The test will be your guide as to what to do next.
