My husband is type 1 diabetic. He had an EMG to diagnose carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel. He had some wasting in his right hand before the test, but no pain to speak of. Immediately following the EMG he had tremendous pain, which continued for a long time. He has had surgery to release the ulnar nerve and median nerve, but some pain remains. Anyone ever hear of an EMG actually aggravating carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome?
Thank you for any help you can give. My husband has become very irritable because of the pain.
