I had a nerve conduction study done last week on my arms for my cervical disc herniations, to test for nerve damage I guess. I was wondering if anyone else has had this test done and what they felt.
I just had the one with the pads, they didn't use any needles. They put these pads on the palm of my hand and placed this electrode thing on my wrist, my elbow, and my bicep and then said to just relax and let the test run. I felt absolutely nothing in my left arm (my bad one)...nothing at all. When they did the exact same thing on my right arm I felt zings from the electrode on my wrist, elbow,and my bicep. I youtubed the test and it showed people feeling stuff and twitching during the test, I didn't get any of that with either arm. I only felt the inital zing from the electrode thing.
Has anyone else had this done and what did you feel? What were your results. I hear that the tests aren't always a good way of knowing anything because sometimes they don't agree with your mri.
I have a followup with my pm doctor today and she is going to go over the results with me I just worry that it is going to be bad news because of the difference between my arms.
The waiting is driving my insane...er if that is possible.
Thanks for your help!
