    Hi Everyone,

    I haven't posted since October of 2006 but I have been reading the postings every now and again. I was wondering if anyone has ever had a Nerve Conductive Study test done? I was at my rheumy on Friday and mentioned to him that I have been dropping lots of things lately, difficulty typing the right letters, the tips of my fingers have been like in a numbing state for a couple of years. He pulled out a huge safety pin and did the prick test down each and every finger and the palms and wrists. I only reacted to pain 3 times out of all of the pin pricks. He now is ordering this test to see if I have carpal tunnel, peripheral neuropathy, ulnar neuropathy, or arthritis. I heard it is pretty painful.

    I hope everyone is feeling okay and making it through their days.

    Hugs to all

    Yes, I had one done about 18 months ago. It's not enjoyable and I couldn't wait for it to be over. But if it's necessary then it's worth the discomfort. For me, they found nothing out of the ordinary. So it was a relief in the end and allowed me to look elsewhere from answers.

    Good luck...hang in there.

    I had one done about 6 months ago and it was a piece of cake, in fact, my daughter was with me and we were both in a silly mood and I giggled thru most of it.

    The test itself didn't hurt, then he lightly ran his hand along that muscle by the arch of my foot and I about went thru the ceiling...now THAT really hurt! He said so many of my muscles were tight as a drum--go figure.

    Either I'm the odd one out, or it isn't painful for everyone.

    Good luck

    Hi Neicee,

    I have had it done twice. It really was not painful for me just more of a weird feeling. It's not really bad and it doesn't take too long.

    God Bless,
    Bob

    Thanks so much for your reply. I hate waiting and April 11th is so far away. HOpefully everything will be fine. I am pretty tough so I can probably stick it out.
