Neurologist Appt Friday & The Test


I have my appointment this Friday at 9 AM with my Neurologist. He's going to test me for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. From my understanding, he's going to attach electrodes along several places along my leg and foot and it'll tell him if I have Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. He's already done a basic test such as testing reflexes and a painful stimuli test and he ran a pin along the top of my foot and I couldn't feel it much. I felt the sensation but not painful stimuli.

They told me not to wear lotions so I know those electrodes will be put on. lol Just hope there's no needles. However, one of the treatments for Tarsal is Cortizone shots in the nerve and last resort, surgery. I'll let you know how it goes.
