Ask a Neurologist. Get Answers to Your Neurology Questions.
I understand totally. Seeing a neurologist makes sense for now, and getting the nerve conduction studies. If they show nerve damage, then seeing a neurosurgeon makes more sense. Either way, seeing a neurosureon does not commit you to having surgery. They would likely paint a few different scenarios for you (e.g. waiting, injections, surgery) and let you decide which you prefer pursuing at this time.
