I was being checked for pinched nerves. They put a needle in my hand, both sides of my legs, and one in my neck. Does that rule out a pinched nerve in my thoracic or lumbar area or would they of had to of put the needles in that area to rule that out? My neurologist said my nerves to my muscles were fine. Is this test even helpful if you don't have any numbness, loss of feeling, anywhere? All I have is the pain and sensations. Can I assume that even though my nerves are acting like a piece of garbage, that there is no damage?
