    Positive EMG

    The right leg was negative but he stopped at the right arm. Should I ask for an EMG of my SCM? It’s more atrophied than the right arm and shoulder. I have cared for many ALS patients in my 30 year nursing career. However, by the time they get to me the question answer window has closed and...

He said he didn't want me to get stressed out over some incidental findings which might be unrelated to any serious pathology... He told me about a time when...
