Nerve Conduction Test, It's not that bad
by Karen Taylor
I had to go for a nerve conduction test. So before I whent I read up on how it was done and the pain level that was expected. The stories I read were horribal so I was scared to death. Just to let you know I hate pain and will run from it if at all possible.
Once I went for the test they explained what was going to happen and what to expect I was still sceptical.
Once it was over I had to admitt that it was not bad at all. The "shocks" felt like the shocks you get when you touch your car in the winter and get a shock just a little stronger. Nothing that was unbearable.
The "needles" they stick you with don't hurt. I knew that I was stuck but it wasn't bad. The only problem I had was about an hour after the test I got a headach that didn't go away until I went to bed and got up the next morning.
But if that's all the pain I had I could deal with that.
Where they stuck me with the needles I had brusesing 2 of the three spots but not pain. The only pain I had through and after the test in my hand was what I already had.
If I had to go through the test again for some reason would I? Yes!!!!
If you asked me that before I went for the test I would probably told you no I'll do this one but never again. After going thrrough it it was nothing. I would do it agaon if I had to.
Thanks for sharing Karen.
It's certainly not horrible for everyone, and thanks for describing your experience so well so others can see the range of what they have to expect.
