Please repost: Surely you're aware that to be "cured" of anything, you have to know the cause. Is your neuropathy due to 1) a treatable cause, 2) an untreatable cause, or 3) "idiopathic" (cause can't be identified)? Also include the answer to your question given to you by your neurologist; or, if you have not asked your neurologist this question, please state why not.

Yes: An emg/ncv will show if the nerve irritation (abnormaility) is peripheral or at the spinal level. It is however possible to have both.
