I had the EMG/NCS yesterday. My NS had wanted me to have it to rule our carpal tunnel. The doctor who administered the test said I was negative for nerve damage and that I should go to PT and have some traction. He suggested that I start taking Lyrica for the nerve pain..... And even epidural injections. $$$$$
I really don't understand why he felt it appropriate to try to sell me onto the services offered at his clinic when I was sent over for the test only (he is suppose to fax results ASAP to NS)
He had my MRI results faxed over and said that my herniated discs and osteophyte were only small and that I should be fine. I have seen the MRI but not read the report. It was two full pages and all he read was (one line).
I am glad I do not have nerve damage, but my arms still hurt and are weak. Still getting tingeling in my hand etc. How can it be?
