I sometimes involuntarilly drop things. This is beginning to happen more
frequently. This problem is bilaterial. I have had an EMG, NCV, and SSEP
done and these tests are normal. One neurologist told me it was because
I wasn't concentrating and another said he just didn't have an answer for
me as to why I drop things. I asked the latter if a nerve or muscle biopsy
would be useful and his reply was no. This past November I had C5/C6
and C/6/C7 removed and fused and at the same time had L4/L5 and L5/S1
removed and fused. Has anyone else had this problem with the hands and if so what tests did your neuro do to find the problem?
