Reply To: Nerve test
You haven’t given much information here. Neurologists treat medical problems involving the nerves, so of course they do nerve tests. The simplest, done by family doctors as well, is to test reflexes by striking with a special hammer. There are also electric tests: Nerve Conduction Velocity and the EMG (I forget what that stands for). They can also just stick you with a pin to see how you feel it.
Medicine is not nearly as “barbaric” as it was a couple of hundred years ago. If you have any kind of medical problem you should be thankful for modern medicine. If you have a neurological problem you need a neurologist.
