Hello
What medical problems do you have
What exam
What testing?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

inosteoarthritis to have nerve test EMG in neurophysiology dept

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
OK
This area of pain can be from the hip or the lower spine.
EMG is fine, but that will only show if there is fairly severe nerve damage.

I suggest you ask for an MRI of the lower spine, and a hip x ray, which will show you pictures of what is going on.

x ray of the lower spine is useless...needs MRI which will show nerves, ligaments, cord, etc.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
You can have an MRI if the plates are compatible
OR CT scan.
The EMG will probably show what type of myalgia you have.

So, Even if you can not have an MRI, you can have a CT.

I don't see any other questions from you...did a post not come through?
