Nerve Conduction Test

Do you have Nerve Conduction Test stories to share?

Are you about to get a Nerve Conduction Test? (Then keep reading below.)

The tests that use needles can be pretty darn painful, from what I hear. But some testing just requires adhesive pads.  It just all depends on what the doctors and technicians want to use to test the conductivity of your nerve pathways.

Whether it hurts or not partly depends on how capable your system is of handling the extra current.  For instance, if your nutritional status is way off, your personal electrical system may not be able to handle the exterior electrical stimulus.  Which would make sense that your nutrition -is- insufficient and/or deficient, since you're in the hospital getting tested.

If you've had an EMG (electromyogram) and/or nerve conduction test, would you recommend the test to others? Tell them to run away screaming, or that it's no bid deal?
