Nerve Conductivity Test

Hi, I went for a nerve conductivity test today and feel ashamed of myself A nurse started on my right index finger and applied the second level of impulses and it freaked me out with pain that I refrained from anymore testing. I was okay with the muscle testing - needles don't bother me much and the neuro who carried this part of the test out was nice which helped.

The nurse was surprised at my reaction to a low charge. I guess I was nervous and now I feel silly.

Sorry, just had to get it off my chest and you guys are great on here

Re: Nerve Conductivity Test

My nerve conduction study was pretty darned painful, too. Not quite that bad, but I remember no one seemed interested in how much it hurt.

Maybe you need a medication to reduce nerve pain before you try again. Or maybe the test isn't necessary.

Re: Nerve Conductivity Test

Hi Jane, thank you for your reply and sorry to learn that your test was uncomfortable too. Some reading were obtained and both nurse and neuro said things looked normal which is reassuring. Guess we have to do these things to find out what is wrong Clare x

Re: Nerve Conductivity Test

Clare, don't feel bad about that. It's hard enough when you hurt all the time, so it's perfectly understandable that you don't want to endure anything that creates more pain. It's nothing to be ashamed about. And at least they got enough info and things look ok. That's good.

Re: Nerve Conductivity Test

Nothing to feel silly about! Pain is pain. I'm so glad you stopped & didn't continue to endure it.

Re: Nerve Conductivity Test

Don't be ashamed. I started to cry when they were part way through mine. I forced myself to endure the entire test, but didn't think I would make it either. When you live with this much pain, there comes a point on some days, where you just can't take anymore.

Blessings,
Lisa
