Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Why was the EMG/NCS and other tests done?
How long have you been experiencing these sorts of problem?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
got it :)
When you say that you have to wait "months" to see the neurologist, how long exactly do you have to wait?
Are you having any new symptoms?
Did the new testing show anything that is worse/of concern?
Sorry for the delay.....Had the entire herd of grandkids over for Easter ;)
I have reviewed your data and, I must say, I agree with Dr. Bob
About the best advice I can offer is for you to seek out another opinion and possible more specialized testing at a University Medical Center.
Why a Medical center? Because At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.I know that it is going to take significant effort on your part, but I believe that going to one of the "Medical Mecca's" is your best chance to – finally -- get to the bottom of what is going on.Does this make sense to you?I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned the top rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations.Thanks in advance,Dr. Rick MD FACS
You did not interrupt my family time, but thank you for your concern.
In my opinion, Dr. Bob hit it right on the head when he gave his opinion on your test results. I agree 110% with him.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

Have a Happy Easter :)
At this time you do not need any specific or special tests done from my point of view.
Your GP will be able to figure out what to do after she examines you since she knows you best.
