Finally I'm getting somewhere! I had the EMG and it wasn't too bad.....until he tested my back. Boy was that painful. But his diagnosis is spinal stenosis - early stages perhaps which is why maybe it didn't show on the MRI. But I go in to see my pain doc in a few weeks and we will see what he has to say and what he plans to do. But I feel as if finally I am accomplishing something - that I finally have a name for my lower back pains! He said too that my nerve impulses were delayed in my right arm and hand but that could be due to my Raynauds.
