Re: Cervical Radiculopathy
Hi mate, no they never gave me an MRI all I had were nerve conduction tests and EMG which tests how the muscle works these were both done in my arms and hands, the numbness and pins and needles have got a lot better and they did coincide with neck pain, when the neck pain started to die off over a few month then the numbness eased though I do still get pain in the hands. Just hoping its a matter of time and that its not always going to be painful.
I waited ages to see Neurology and as is typical the numbness started to ease when my appointment approached. Its strange how painful numbness can be, you would think the opposite. I did go for a xray (whilst waiting almost 4 month for my Neurologist appointment) which I suppose is not the best thing to get for nerve pain and the spine appeared ok from the xray.
