NERVE TESTING NEGATIVE

Posted by BERNIE B. on 12/19/03 at 07:12 (140293)

DR,

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY DOC SUSPECTED TTS, BUT THE NERVE TEST WAS NEGATIVE? DOES THIS MEAN I DO NOT HAVE TTS?

Bernie --

I am not a doctor, but I believe there are different types of NCV tests to diagnose TTS. Some are more accurate and sensitive than others. Ask your neurologist about a ring electrode test if you haven't already had one.
