Re: Is EMG/nerve conduction study bad for RSD?
Thanks for sharing your experience! First doctor i saw on monday dx with RSD but wants to do a EMG on my hands to rule out carpel tunnel. Today i went to see his partner, a neurolgoist, he wants me to go through with the EMG as he is not 100% confidence in rsd dx although i do have signs of RSD but he said the pattern does not quite fit. My reply was is it still early to show all signs. He said it is possible. He also said it may or may not make RSD worse or spread. So i am confused. For those of you had EMG done, did it make your symptoms worse temp or permenantly? Please advise!
