Hi,

I had an EMG done last week and I got the results back but I do not know what they actually mean. There was evidence of fasiculation in opponens pollicis, something about large complex units in the tricpes. Small units in cervical paraspinals. The nerve conduction was fine.

The doctor did not really say anything about anything, saying it was another useful infomation.

Well I know destro is right hand in italian.
Braccio looks like brachi which is latin for arm so I am guessing serve muscle spasms in you right arm.
Possiblly fasiculations as well.

Appletaps, click on community at the top of the page. When alphabet appears, click on W and it will show several pages. I don't remember exactly, but wright may be page 5 or 6. Find his sign in name, Wright, click it and you will be at his page. Click on visitors me ssage and type and post. In order to use pri vate me ssaging, you must have 10 posts.

If this would be easier, click on my sign in name (momof..) and you will be at my page. On the right side of my page you will see my friends (6 show at a time there). Click on show all friends. Go through the pages until you get to Wright. Then click and continue to me ssage him. If you have difficulties, let me know and I will message him to get with you.

Good luck,
