Reply To: Pain with healing nerves?

Shooting pains in the limbs are normal with a peripheral neuropathy and can be associated either with healing or with the opposite. Follow-up exams are essential to determine if you are making progress and not backsliding. Either a neurologist or physical therapist can monitor your strength to check this. Your pain sensations are not enough.

Were you diagnosed in the hospital? When you are discharged from a hospital, your care is transferred to your primary physician and neurologist. If you didn’t have a neurologist before being hospitalized, then it is not unusual that you would need to find one on your own at that point. Regular checkups with a neurologist are essential until it is determined that you are not in danger of relapse.
