Your docror knows: Your doctor knows your case better and nct shows what he/she says it shows. Why are you looking for something more serious nerve impringement is an abnormal or pathological pressure placed on a nerve by connective tissue, joins or skin and can be in different parts of body due to different conditions ask your doctor what is causing your nerve impringement.

The interpretation: Is based on experience and the electrical signal. You doc can meld this with the clinical story and exam and put it all together to reach the correct diagnosis.
