Data Entry Job – SCAM!

We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.

EMG Results Translation Please? (only one side of body done)

CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT ALL THIS MEANS? I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS TEST IS TYPICALLY INCONCLUSIVE. THE DOCTOR WHO DID THIS TEST TOLD ME THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE TEST SAYS IT DOESNT MEAN I DONT HAVE PAIN-NO KIDDING,


Motor Nerve Conductions:
Right median CMAP 10.7mV. Distal latency 3.8 msec. Conduction velocity 61m/sec.

Right ulnar CMAP 11.8mV. Distal latency 3.2 msec. Conduction velocity 60m/sec below the elbow and 50 m/sec across the cubital tunnel.

Peroneal CMAP 4.1 mV. Distal latency 3.8 msec. Conduction velocity 44m/sec.

Right tibial CMAP 11.6 mV. Distal latency 5.6 msec. Conduction velocity 44m/sec.

Sensory Nerve Conductions:
Right median SNAP 30 mcV. Conduction velocity 67 m/sec.

Right median palmar response 160 mcV. Distal latency 1.7 msec.

Right ulnar SNAP 16 mcV. Conduction velocity 48 m/sec.

Right peroneal snap was inconsistent at 15 microvolts. Conduction velocity 56 m/sec.


Right sural SNAP was inconsistant. There was artifact compromising evaluation of the lower extremity sensory responses.

Electomyogram:
In the upper extremity, the right deltoid, biceps, triceps, brachioradialis APB and first dorsal interossei are examined. All muscle groups are normal. In the lower extremity, there is a mildly reduced interference pattern in the right vastus lateralis and right EDB. There is no active or chronic denervation. This is a nonspecific finding. The right vastus lateralis, anterior tibialis, biceps femoris were normal.

Imression:
No definite evidence of active or chronic denervation in cervical segments C5 through C8/T1, or in lumbar segments L2-S1. The motor conductions were normal. Lower extremity sensory responses were inconsistent but I attribute this to electrical artifact.

Clinical correlation:
There is no definite evidence of cervical or lumbar root injury on the right side. Motor conductions are normal. The inconsistent sensory responses in the lower extremities are compromised by electrical artifact. This finding would not have any implication relative to the patients clinical symptomatology.

Left side was not examined on this study.

    Since they're all gibberish to me, I can comment on the negative findings.
    I myself had an EMG done in November for weak legs, and mildly in arms. On the physical exam, my GP and rheumatologist found nothing wrong (my rheumatologist implied I was normal and just aging). My EMG was completely normal. I was told to go ahead with the MRI, since EMG does not test the central nervous system, among other things.
    Two weeks later my MRI revealed severe cord compression in my neck, with surgery within 5 days. As I was told, if I had nerve root compression, the EMG may have been abnormal. I had cord compression instead.
    By the way - I really didn't have much pain in my neck, it was all neurological.
