Difference w/ Evoked Potential Tests and Nerve Conductivity/EMG
I was so frustrated at the thought of more tests (and having to wait ANOTHER month to have it done) that I failed to ask two main questions. First, if it is my lumbar spine on the left leg, what can they do about it and second, if my evoked potential tests were normal, then why the nerve conductivity test again. Can it change that much in eight months and what is the difference. They seemed very similar to the Evoked Potential to me. I'm feeling like calling back and telling them I don't want the tests and I want to stop taking the Neurontin, as it only seems to help me sleep and I hate taking drugs I don't need.
I know I'm feeling down today, but it's been a long week and I once again had to work myself up to go to the appointment, only to walk out and break down in tears as soon as I left due to frustration. Any help on the difference in the two tests would be beneficial. I know you guys are a wealth of knowledge here and have helped me sort out my frustrations in a positive way before making the call.
