EMG/NCS TEST

Oct 05, 2015 1:04 AM

Ok, on the 1st I took the muscle and nerve test and it was so painful but thank God I didn't have a muscle/nerve disease but I still have a lot of pain and none of my doctors can figure out what's going on with me. I also have osteoarthritis in my lower back and I really don't know how I will be able to do my job because I can barely walk.

Not diagnosing here, but has a rheumatologist checked for fibromyalgia?

TreShell03, I am sorry you had to endure that horrible test!! I have had three of them and will die before I ever let them do another. You could be looking at anything from osteoarthritis to fibromyalgia to CRPS. Try to see a Rheumatologist if you haven't and also a pain specialist. I hope you get the answers you need. Being in pain as I have for 22 years isn't a picnic!! 🙏🏻🌻

Chico1977, yes a rheumatology has also said that I have fibromyalgia.

Thanks Alwayzinpain, I do have osteoarthritis along with my fibromyalgia.

So sorry you're in so much pain!! I would have your Rheumatologist run a test too check your inflammation levels...That's how mine found my RA, but that would at least give you a baseline. There's do many different autoimmune diseases, he's usually the Dr that will address those. A pain clinic will at least help you deal with the pain, although they won't find the cause. Good luck! <3
