To the degree that your nerve damage and pain is a result of deterioration of your myelin sheath, I believe the answer is ‘probably.’
My opinion is, yep- only a layman’s opinion, that you must have working nerve pathways to feel shooting, tingling, pain, whatever..
To the degree that the axons have died, be they either motor or sensory, the answer is “probably not.”
Contact the Chicago folks and see if you qualify, then go get checked out. After all that, you can decide if it’s right for you.
