What Is The Treatment For Paresthesia?
Paresthesia usually gets better by itself over time. You may notice tingling or other sensations while your nerves are repairing. On the other hand, your sensation may return so gradually that you might not be aware of any improvement. It is possible that all or some of your sensation will return. However, nerve repair surgery, if performed in a timely manner
, is sometimes an option for extreme cases of paresthesia. If you decide to have nerve surgery, it is recommended that you consult with a nerve surgery specialist (microsurgeon) and have surgery between two months and six months following your extractions in order to have the best chance of a successful nerve repair.
It is very important for you to keep all of your follow-up appointments so that we can evaluate your progress and develop the best treatment plan for you. During your follow-up appointments, we will perform tests that will enable us to monitor your nerve response and document any changes in the area affected. It is by monitoring changes in your symptoms over time that we are able to advise you of your prognosis and best treatment options. Your failure to return for regular follow-up care may prevent us from helping you regain your sensation to the best possible extent.In Closing …
