I just had the nerve conduction test Wednesday for the exact same symptoms.
The electro test part isn't too bad. It's like getting a strong static shock in your arms. Quick and fast.
The second part to see if it's a nerve root part is painful. :(
The neurologist sticks a thin needle in various muscles of your hand, arm, and neck. The needle picks up the electric current in the muscles. When he sticks the needle in he will have you relax the muscle, then activate the muscle by flexing it. It's the most painful part of the test.
He said I was a real trooper, because I didn't hit him. :D
I don't use foul language, but I was tempted during the test. I just did deep breathing and try to go to my happy place.
