When nerves "wake up"

I had a MicroD about 6 months ago and have had numbness and pressure in my right foot and calf since that time. The NS said the nerves would slowly come back to life. Does anyone know how that happens? Do you just all the sudden have feeling where there wasn't feeling before? Or do the nerves hurt? Tingle more? More pressure? I am having more pressure feeling (like someone stepping on my foot) than before, and tingling where there wasn't tingling before. Is this something to worry about?




  • Hi,

    Guess what? I had the same thing. My left foot was numb on top. I gained sensitivity back slowly with the symptoms you described. In fact it did hurt for a while. I still get a pressure feeling when I stand for long periods. I caused a flare up last month and the bottom of my foot began tingling. I guess this is just an adventure with suprises along the way.
