Well, the EMG wasn't fun at all but not near as bad as I had stirred myself up to believe. The only thing it shows is that I have bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome (mild), my brain MRI came back remarkably normal as they put it. Now I am waiting on blood work to see if whatever the problem is will be found there. This is so frustrating and I feel that they are going to tell me that all of the pain and problems are in my head and leave it at that and stop pain meds because they can't find the cause. Thank God they didn't find anything serious with the MRI or EMG but if they had at least it would have been some answers.
When you have symptoms that you truly believe are related to your entire back being screwed up and they say the spine is fine considering, and you have symptoms of stroke or significant neurological damage and the tests come back normal other than CTS, it makes you feel alone. I just want to feel good again. Something is definately causing all of this. I guess all I can do is wait for the blood work and hope that if it doesn't show the problem that they will continue searching for the reason and not just slap a general diagnosis and leave it at that.
I know that my doc will stop my pain meds if something doesn't show up because she was going to stop them anyway because the specialists weren't sending her reports. She doesn't care and she made me sign a legal contract that I wouldn't go to any other doc, pharmacy, or person for my pain meds except her and that I had to keep absolutely every appt. like I would really cancel. It really pisses me off that she has started to treat me this way.
