After pouring through this forum looking for answers I was so happy to learn of the EMG test that can pinpoint nerve pain. In addition, I have read posts stating that after having a cortisone injection into the specific nerve they were finally pain free. These people had the same type of thoracic pain I do and had this test done on their back. Therefore, armed with this knowledge I called my PM and he states the EMG is not for back pain??? What? I was so hopeful for once. I guess I have to look for a new PM.
