testing for tarsal tunnel

Posted by Lynne C. on 7/16/03 at 17:38 (124571)

Could someone give me an idea about the testing for tarsal tunnel. I have to have this test done Fri morning.
Thanks in advance,
Lynne C.

What kind of a test is it? Is it nerve conduction? Mar

That I'm not sure of. My Pod said he wanted to rule out the possibility of tarsal tunnel. Are there different types of test?

I found some information of EMG's. I think that is what I am having. From what I read I am not looking foward to it.
Thanks, Lynne

I'm not sure if that was what I had, but I had 2 nerve conduction tests and it isn't that big a deal. So don;t worry. There wasn't much pain. And the pain of PF is much worse! Good luck -- Mar
