Not yet
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 6 months ago.
At this point, I would recommend an EMG considering your symptoms and the length of time you've had them. It will give us an idea of where your nerves are affected and how this issue can be resolved. I would seek out consultation who can order this test for you along with recommending an appropriate treatment plan.Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
