Nerve conduction study

  1. I'm having to have a nerve conduction study next week. What can you tell me about this? I figured Neuro nurses would be the best to ask.

    Do you mean an EMG? If so , they shoot electricity through the nerves in the affected limb. Hurts like a mother for a nanosecond.

    I'm sorry but as per site terms of service we cannot offer or request medical advice. You need to discuss your concerns with your treating physician and/or the physician performing the test. Be certain to create a list of questions to ask and have answered before you sign the informed consent.

    Good luck.
