Nerve conduction

I have had them done to myself years ago. Its not really painful.
Its like a tiny pin stick that measures how well the nerves are working.
They are not shocking you to any degree that could do any harm.
It’s not like a defribrilator.
Its telling them how much of your own body’s electricity is getting through your nerves to your muscles.
Its a very useful tool to tell them how much your nerves have repaired themselves. It can also tell them how fast the repair is going.
Nate had them when he was first diagnosed and he had them about 2 mos ago, 18 mos later after he got sick.
He says it didn’t really hurt and it was not anything to be afraid of. It was helpful to his Neuro doc to be able to have some kind of idea of how Nate is doing and how much he has gotten back. Its a good thing to do.

Gene, I will make sure I ask his New Neuro about that when we go.
