Good morning all,
I had an EMG test on both arms yesterday and I have a concern/questions. I had ACDF done April 1, 2010 which has help me very much.
When doing this test, there is a loud, cracking type noise I am sure you are all familiar with. What does item mean when a spot does not produce this Noise. One of the sticks, during all phases of resistance, got no noise reaction. Doctor was concerned with this, told me there must be an impingement (sp?) he thought in my neck. Has anyone had this happen, what were the results and course of action. He did not say anything else, said we would talk at my appointment which is weeks away. When I had my ACDF it was mostly because a nerve root was being cut off. Could this be the problem. Just asking anyone with this experience, please share what you found out with me?
Feeling nervous as I do not want to have surgery again, but am tired of the neck and arm pain.
Thank you all,
