Question on Nerve Conduction Study on Legs??
I had a lumbar fusion in June of this year and since then have had tons of pain and numbness in my legs that actually caused me to fall flat on my face with no warning as my legs went numb and being diabetic I knew my feet were already becoming numb but never caused me to fall.
Anyway my primary doctor gave me Lyrica and it took all the pain away and since it is used to treat nerve damage pain I pretty well know what is wrong but she ordered a nerve conduction study on my legs that is later this month and a friend just told me that it was extremely painful to the point of her screaming and they gave her nothing for the pain and I wondered if anyone here has had one and what I may expect because I am very close to calling my DR and asking for it to be cancelled as I can not handle anymore pain at this time in my life!!
Thanks in advance and sorry for the book I ended up writing!
