will an emg show whether the nerve is pinched at the neck/elbow/wrist. my pinky is curling down and i have neck, shoulder, and arm pain also. anyone have neck problems from the ulnar nerve. jason
Jayboy, I'm new here but I'll do my best with this one. I had an EMG done on my neck last year as well as an MRI due to severe pain. The MRI didn't not show a pinched nerve. Just multi level degenerative disk disease and buldging disks at C3,4,5 and 6. As well as Spondylosis. However the EMG results were conclusive for nerve degeneration at the C6/7 with axonal neuropathy. As well as left ulnar neuropathy. My nerve is pinched off there at my elbow. An EMG is an excellent source for picking up any type of neuropathy or any type of nerve damage. If you have DDD or spondylosis this can flare and aggitate surounding nerves and facet joints. Even though an MRI is inconclusive for nerve root displacement an EMG will pick up any type of nerve damage or neuropathy. Hope this helps you and good luck. Let me know how it goes.
