Nerve Conduction Test

A week later I had an appointment with the specialist in the Frankston Neurology Clinic. He first examined my back, shoulder, left arm, left hand, and left wrist for any abnormality or lump. Then he performed a Nerve Conduction Test. This involved attaching electrode pads to certain points on my left hand, Forearm, and shoulder, positioning my arm in different angles while he activated the pulse with a machine to check the response of the nerves and my response of the feelings I have at each point. The specialist is a little concerned of his findings and has referred me for an ultrasound and a CT scan on my neck and shoulder for further investigation.

Pins and Needles in Left Arm

In April I had an appointment with my local GP . During the consultation I explained my issues and after a thorough examination of my back, shoulder, left arm, hand and wrist she referred me to Neurologist.  The local doctor is a little concerned that this issue could have something to do with my Transsphenoidal Surgery and there could be a little nerve damage. I had a scheduled appointment a couple of days later for some nerve test to be performed to see if there is an issue.
