I have an extremely bad problem that some of you may have had and I'd be interested in knowing how you dealt with it. I have extremely bad wrist/hand and now elbow pain, which may have some, if not most, of their origin in nerve compression, be it median nerve compression in the wrist or ulnar nerve compression in the elbow.
However, part of the routine workout for both of these conditions is the nerve conduction study/EMG. In both cases the testing physician said the test won't be valid because of my level of injury (C6), due to the paralysis of muscles and altered sensory patterns, the results can't be conclusively used to justify any surgical intervention.
This leaves me with an extremely bad pain problem resulting in only about 2 to 3 hours a night sleep for the last few years. I have yet to find a physician which will give me the time of day in terms of a full workup once they find out that the nc/emg was done and that "no compression can be determined". Not that it isn't there, it just can't be demonstrated.
Any similar experience?
