Re: C3, C5 & C6 problems .....

Hi welcome to the board. Sorry for your problems.

There is a test called EMG (electromyogram) that can test for radiculopathies (nerve root compression). It isn't pleasant, a little painful at times, but can give more information to the story.

The EMG helps to distinguish between muscle conditions in which the problem begins in the muscle and muscle weakness due to nerve problems like a "pinched nerve" in the C-spine.
