EMG nerve test…

Man that hurt. Electric shock and  pins in the nerves to test for nerve damage.

He only did the upper body so far. Not sure why the dr didn’t order the lower body since I have both upper and lower body pinched nerves and numbness and due to the diabetes he is concerned about diabetic neuropathy. So he is recommending the lower body also be done and he said it is best not to do them on the same day anyhow because after the upper body, I wanted to get out of there. I was quite uncomfortable and still am hours later.

Still waiting for the insurance company to preauthorize the 2 MRI’s.

Just called and no they don’t have any open ones, but the tubes are wider and shorter they say. I guess I will see. I did it before, by talking to myself.

      Thank you, I am trying to follow so many people and not doing a very good job of it LOL! I am making a new list in the reader for the ones I really don’t want to miss. That means going through the long list and picking out the ones I remember. I believe you are already on my new list. Yep I am pretty sure of it.

        Aw thank you! I am still missing a few but I cannot remember their exact name. One was marine2mother or something like that and northernrose but i cant find them if i search them. I am missing way too many i was following.
        But you are right. If you wake up to 1000 blog posts that have been posted by those you follow it is hard because some people you get close to and want to stay in touch with.
