Can A Dog Bite In The Muscle Above Elbow Cause Median Nerve Damage?
Wait for nerve conduction, consult neurologist and plastic surgeon
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
There is possibility of median nerve damage if the bite lead to tearing of nerve at elbow as it runs in front of elbow.
The pain may be due to injury.
Is there any possibility of rabies? Was the dog vaccinated? Status of dog alive or death?
The nerve conduction study will be fruitful after 10- 14 days as changes evident on Ncv takes this much time.
The administration of pain killers or pain modulator drugs like amitryptiline or gabapentin or pregabalin can be tried.
Antirabies drug should be administered if dog suspected of rabies.
The management of nerve injury is to get it repaired if not recovering. You can consult a plastic surgeon for operation.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
