I have been struggling for a few months with numbness and pain in my hands and arms along with pain in my neck and shoulders. Have had MRI and evoked potential tests. Everything I read says there is no pain with the evoked potential tests, however, I found it to be particularly painful at the ankle and am worried about what it means. The tech was pretty sure of carpal tunnel syndrome, but I think I may have a bad cervical disk too from an accident 2 years ago. I don't really know why I am writing, and I don't know what to expect. Guess I just want someone who can empathise.
