I am sorry you are experiencing worsening symptoms. I have had the nerve test done twice. It is as Joy described but (in my experience anyway), the description is actually worse than the test. While uncomfortable, it is not as horrible as it sounds. My results showed worsening nerve damage - probably the result of a lupus flare. They made adjustments to my meds and that seemed to help. Try not to stress (easier said than done, I know). Hope you feel better.
Take care, Fran
