can somebody explain to me what this means?
i have just had an EMG only to my right arm and hand. (should have done both sides as far as i am concerned!!)

results are:

NEEDLE EMG IN SELECTED MUSCLES OF RT HAND DID SHOW SIGNS OF CHRONIC DENERVATION IN MUSCLES INNERVATED BY C5-C6 RT

the above findings are suggestive for CHRONIC NEUROGENIC CHANGES IN MUSCLES, INNERVATED BY C5 - C6 RT

which means what????

a) i have pain and weakness in arm and wrist that i now have to live with?
b) its caused by a problem in the neck?
c) i did menial work and overused and strained my muscles?
d)????
e)????

anybody out there have any idea???
thanks
