The Test Almost Made Me Throw Up

by Tina
(Medford, OR)

It was horrible!

If I knew they were going to stick a needle in my nerve I never would have done it. I broke into a sweat and was nauseous, almost lost it the last place they stuck me.

It was worse than all the carpal tunnel pain I've been having.

But at least it's official now, the 'nerve conduction velocity test' (the doctor seemed proud of the name, though he didn't seem to notice I was about to barf all over him) shows that I have carpal tunnel syndrome.

I think the test made the pain in my wrist and hand worse, hopefully that will go away in a couple days.


Joshua Comments:

Yikes! That doesn't sound fun...

I always wonder if doctors perform the tests on themselves so they know what it feels like....I wonder if that would change how they go about it.
