Okay, I have had a couple of plain MRIs which both showed bulging disks in the area I have symptoms. Of course I have had the standard xrays which show nothing useful. I was supposed to have a CT Discogram, but that looks like it isn't going to happen. Hence, my question. Is there a "best test" to determine nerve root compression?
I have already had a couple of EMGs, but since my problem isn't constant, the EMG only show some minor cervical symptoms. My NS won't do surgery or anything else until he gets more info (which sounds wise to me). I'm going to talk to him as soon as I can, but I thought I would throw it out to the forum in the meantime.
