EMG: slight chronical neurogenic damage

Hi there,

now I have my written report of my last visit of neuromuscle ambulance:
Sulcus Ulnar nerve syndrom confirmed, left arm
slight paresis of m. abductor digitus minimi (4+) - I think this muscle is innervated by the Ulnar nerve and so this would be logical?

slight neurogenic changes in all three muscles which were investigated (abductor digitus minimi left, m. deltoideus right, m. vastus lateralis left) . Normal clinical, no pathological reflexes....They want me to come back in a year.

I have nerve problems since 5 years.
Period of twitching started 20 month ago
actually no twitching

Instead I have actually strong pain of my lower arms. I can hardly touch them. And high muscle tone, changing its intensity. Good days, bad days. Strong fatigue is over since I have started a supplement regime.

What do you think of the slight neurogenic changes in all three (very different located) muscles?
It does not sound encouraging to me!

Looking forward to some opinions!

That sounds promising! But indeed there is a process in me going on, getting worse in circeln since years. I think the pain in my arms comes from the tight muscles in my lower arms, which I started to give a daily massage..And I started to have slight involuntary movements when lying in bed. I think this is also not a good sign..

Any other opinion?
