I have been prescribed a walker/wheelchair, placed on narcotics, undergone painful steroid injections, been sent to pain classes, issued TENS unit, sent to PT/OT , issued braces for my hands,etc. I was told there was nothing they could do for any of my problems because they were all due to diabetic neuropathy- which they never performed EMG/NCV to test for. Finally I INSISTED on EMG/NCV and XR's and come to find out I have BL mod CTS and bone on bone arthritis in my hips and thumbs. I have early DJD in nearly every joint and need hip replacements, thumb surgeries and carpal tunnel releases. This is because they neglected to order a simple XR of my hips/hands and do EMG/NCV- which would have both diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome and ruled out diabetic neuropathy!
