More testing at the neurologist, which consisted of needles inserted into musles all over my body and electric current while he tells me to relax. Hmmm...

I know exactly what you had done and there is no way anyone could relax having that test done.

Oh yeah, emg, I used to help with those. Did you have any electrodes on your head? If so evoked response testing. Tracing nerve reactions through your spinal column into your brain, used to do those.

No electrodes on the head,wholefoodnut, just arms. Second session, needles and current all over. Actually not as painful as first.

So an emg, glad it wasn't as painful. I've had them done to me so I understood what it's like. It's an extremely informative method of checking nerve function to the muscle. Of course it is used in conjunction with other biological testing in order to confirm a specific diagnosis.

C.C. You are a great example of making "lemonade out of lemons". Not that it's funny about what you are going through at all. I admire your moxie. I have yet to learn that. However I do appreciate you making me laugh this morning. Wishing you a good Thursday, my friend. Truly, J.J.

I've had the test before but I don't think as extensively as they're doing for you. I hope all this yields something they can work with to make things better. Good to see that you are keeping your sense of humor. :)

You have my prayers, I remember when I was 21 and I was having pain in my neck and shoulder and they did a shock type test- it was 8am till noon- my nerves were rattled, I called off work for the rest of the day - my insurance charge me $10 they paid the doctor $1100- I am now 46, it's amazing some of the stuff I remember- I have been back to the neurologist since and my back seem to heal up after a couple massage therapy- best of luck to you!!!!
