EMG Update

This past Monday, I had an EMG test.. If you are not familiar with this test, (I know I wasn't) let me explain what it does.

An EMG measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and fest the nerves can send electrical signals. These electrical signals or impulses react in a specific way. If you have nerve or muscle problems, they will react abnormally  These tests check how well your spinal cord, nerves, nerve roots and muscles that control your legs and are arms are working.

See picture below.. Thanks google images :)

This little test sent shocks to my nerve system.. It was not pleasant.. All signs point to.. .

On one hand, that is great! On the other, we still have no results for tingling, numbness, pain.. The doctor basically said this could be my new NORMAL.. What??? He also explained a hormonal shift could be causing these odd symptoms.. Either way, I am frustrated... What the heck is going on??/ He doesn't have any more testing planned for me... What next?? Where do we go??? 

I am frustrated that no body has answers.. Medical things are no fun to deal with.. .If we had answers, we might be able to fix it... 

Thanks for all your prayers, support and love.. I am not sure what the next step is.....

What situations have you been faced with and left without answers??
