My Mother (60)was recently diagnosed with Hansen's disease .She is into her 5th Month of MDT.It started with the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis .She was treated for RA for close to 3 years and then the full symptoms of Hansen's appeared.She completed 2 months of prednisolone (total of 1860 mg) recently because of acute inflammation.Seems some peripheral nerve damage has already happened.Prednisolone helped a lot with also some form of nerve damage recovery .She was able to get back some muscle strength.Initially she was not able to move some of her fingers and now she is able to . But She has lost her sensation on foot and hand.We went to another Dr and now the doctor has put her on NuroKind(Methylcobalamin) and Fersolate for B12 and iron deficiency. Will Nurokind help in peripheral nerve damage recovery ?Should I see a neurologist ? Will long term use of prednisolone help in recovering from nerve damage?
