Absolutely and positively can temp. affect testing.
January 7, 2010 at 8:28 pm
There had been several articles written up about it? But they are no longer available on line.
Thing is, lower skin or body temp slows the nerve conductivity. Thus a ‘normal’ report can be a false report if you’re COLD during the test.
When I get cold, I will rub my affected areas gently to stimulate some extra circulation…. At home when it gets really bad, I’ll use a hair blower on low and gently wave it over the skin to ‘thaw’ it. Parts actually try to turn blue at times! I think the next time I get any nerve testing done? I’m going to bring my own lap robe! Just in case.
Hope this helps.
