I had a laminectomy in 2003 C6/7 then a fusion in 2005 C4/5. I continued to have arm, hand , neck, shoulder and scapula pain. Dr. ordered EMG and it came back with nothing. I do not trust them. I have and had then a nerve being pinched at C6/7 and waiting now for surgery to be approved via workers comp. I have symptoms that range mostly from C7/8 area that involves the scapula area. I have a lot of pain in my hands pinky, ring, middle and pointer finger, side of hand and area along thumb. Both triceps hurt and I work out and when I do tricep workouts I cannot even feel my tricep working. I have some atrophy but am lucky since I do workout and try to keep it strong. My side neck muscles hurt very bad too.

I did not feel any pain at all when I had my EMG. Not sure why some of you do. I also have high pain threshold and certain areas do not feel hot (hate it when I run my baby's bath and it turns out so hot when I think it is warm. I learned to cool it more then I think it needs to be and it turns out right).
