I've been having pain in my fingers for about a month now. I went to see my Dr., and she sent me for blood tests and x-rays. Everything came back normal, except that I tested positive for strep. My only symptoms are the arthritis-like pain in my fingers. I took antibiotic for three weeks, but I still have the pain and a recent blood test revealed I still have strep in my blood. Now, she wants me to go have an EMG. She wants to check for carpal tunnel syndrome, even though I'm a 38 yr. old stay-at-home Mom and don't have any classic symptoms for carpal tunnel. It just doesn't seem realistic to have this kind of test, especially since the blood tests showed strep, and the antibiotic didn't seem to work. By the way, she didn't perscribe any more antibiotics - just wants me to go back for another blood test in two months. Is it just me, or does this seem wierd?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
