Hi,
My GP and the hospital didn't waste any time getting me in for nerve tests.
Has he ever had any electrolysis tests on his nerves?
Or do you think he's really too far gone.
If needed I was offered an operation.

I'm not sure what you mean... nerve conduction studies and electromyography?

Talking to my brother today -- he had the NCS tests done a few years ago and they found nothing wrong up to his shoulder. I asked about the neck to shoulder -- they can't do NCS on the neck but they took an mri scan and confirmed all looked fine there too. I often wondered if it was like the Riveter syndrome where the vibration or constant action of the rivet gun caused nerve damage. He often uses a hammer drill in his job.
