Nerve Conduction Test Side Effects
I have cramping an tingling down the right side of my knee to my ankle. I've had a nerve conduction test an MRI to check for nerve entrap. But nothin?
First off,: You should realize that a nerve conduction test doesn't offer accuracy of 100%. There are false negatives results. Mri's are tricky too. Particularly with certain nerve entrapments and who is reading them. Nerves generally don't cramp, muscles do. Tingling is usually nerve related. The nerve in your case i would look for is by the fibular head and/or in the back. A good physical exam is key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Left side face arm and leg feel numbish. It come and goes can last minutes to days. Negative MRI mra EEG and nerve conduction test. Any other ideas?
Interpretation: Assuming the test was comprehensive and technically competent, this can eliminate large fiber neuropathy, and most muscle diseases. But does not eliminate small fibre neuropathy, or disease of brain and/or spinal cord. Symptoms due to intermittent nerve compression are not fully excluded either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tolerable discomfort: There are two parts to an EMG test: nerve conduction studies and electromyography. Nerve conduction studies feel like a short, electrical impulse and are, in a word, annoying. Emg uses a fine wire electrode to record from muscles and feels like an insect bite. It is not as bad as a shot or IV or blood draw. Several muscles and several nerves are usually checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nerves & muscles: Emg and nerve conduction studies are used to detect abnormalities of nerves and muscles. The test evaluates nerve roots as they exit your spine, the nerve plexus, peripheral nerves, the nerve-muscle junction, and muscle itself. It can detect pinched/compressed nerves (sciatica, carpal tunnel, and others), muscle disorders, neuropathy, and many other neuromuscular conditions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No preparation need: Your test will be done with mild electrical shocks, and recordings of the stimulation results. An EMG part will use small needles, and the greatest risk might be a small bruise. If done thoroughly and fully, answers for location and severity of nerve problem will be uncovered. ...Read more
