Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Have you had a nerve conduction study done as yet?
Any other tests done?
Please let me know.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I had nerve conductor test. It said I have carpal tunnel.
Anothehysician said I had a pinched nerve in my neck. He wanted to inject me at the point.
Lastly I am diabetic and have neuropathy in both legs.
Hence my confusion.

Have you had MRI of your neck to find out if you have a disease of your neck bones or discs in the neck?
Please let me know.
