    Normal EMG, even more loss of strength in hand....

    I had my EMG monday and went to the Dr. today for the results. She said my numbers on the EMG were normal. Now she wants to do an MRI. I do not have any real neck pain. If I turn my head to the right I do feel some slight pain and I always crackle. My strength in my right hand is decreased even more now. It was 40lbs in June and today it was 15lbs. The strength in my left hand is decreased from 55 to 40 today also. Still having wrist, arm and hand pain. Still have this weird burning like sensation on my skin on the outside of my right arm.

    Any ideas on what could be going on? She thought CT, but now is doing more testing to look for other things since my EMG was normal. This is my second normal EMG and both times the Dr's that it would be abnormal because every other exam they do is positive for CT. Who knows. Thanks for any advice ahead of time. It's more hurry up and wait. Kat
