Protecting the nerve and conservative may help, depending on the cause of course. ...Read more

I have disc hernation @ t7-t8 with flattening of the left ventricle spinal cord, disc protrusions and spondylolisthesis from L4-S1 resulting in bi lateral stenosis but more on left. Paresthesias on left leg and tingling in hot weather why NORMAL EMG?

The EMG/NCS: Test is a very unreliable (and UNCOMFORTABLE) diagnostic test in the diagnosis of lower extremity symptoms due to spinal cord/disc abnormalities.
It can be normal when imaging shows herniated discs!!

How is a diagnoses of chronic hyperventilation syndrome made? Doc has ruled out other causes of paresthesia thru testing.

Blood gases: In hyperventilaton syndrome chronic anxiety produces conscious or unconscious over breathing which blows off an excess of carbon dioxide. This produces what is called respiratory alkylosis in which the blood Ph becomes elevated, the blood gases show normal oxygen but decreased carbon dioxide. This can temporarily be helped by rebreathing in a paper or other bag which adds the lost carbon dioxide. ...Read more
