yes
It can but could take up to six months. It depends on the type of damage that you had.
Depending on the type of damage you have, most times, it will heal with time.

Hello,

Nerve damage can be finicky, are you sure you have it? Nerves in general have the ability to regenerate and heal; however, the healing process can be painful and it may not heal properly. I would make sure that this is really your issue though, that way something does not go undetected.

My best to you!
