Reply To: is this the new normal?

Hey Zag. There is only one thing that I have found that helps. TIME. One day you will find that you are able to do something more easily and then you will find something else that seems to be working better. Eventually you will find more things are working better. There is no magic pill but I can just about guarantee you that you are not at your new normal. If you are not in physical therapy and occupational therapy you should be. Your nerves need time to heal but you need to help by keeping your muscles toned and ready to receive the signals. I found that exercise actually decreased my nerve pain. My legs used to bother me badly in the evening but if I walked a bit at the end of the day the pain lessened. Good luck in your recovery but don’t wait for it to come to you. Go after it.
