It seems you still have a long ways to go for recovery. The sensation you describe as “currents” is neuropathic pain associated with damaged nerves. It can occur both during progrssion of the disease and during recovery as the nerves heal, and can take some time to go away, if ever. I have been in recovery (from CIDP) for a year and a half, and I still get shooting pains along the nerves in my lower legs from time to time. I don’t take any medication for it however — I just tolerate it.

There are several threads on this site in which pain medication is discussed. I won’t try to answer your question myself, because I have no experience with these. I did take Oxycodone during the active phase of my disease when I was in the hospital, but I got off it as soon as I was able. That is powerful medicine.

You should, of course, discuss all pain medications with your doctor, and only take something he or she prescribes.
