Having your doctor's office call to cancel your appointment is mildly annoying. Especially when it's a follow-up with a previously done EMG medical test that hurt so bad I cried! Aug 13th got cancelled so I scheduled it for tonight. Well this morning I get a call that my doctor is leaving early so they need to cancel for the second time! Argh-I just want to know what's going on with my hand/arm and why it hurts so badly sometimes. The EMG test came back negative for carpal tunnel...something my doctor was positive I had and the EMG test was supposed to just confirm. Even the doctors at the EMG testing (there were 3 plus one lab tech) all thought that by my symptoms and strength tests that I had CTS. So something is definitely not right, but what is it? Without being able to go to the doctor's, I'll never find out!

Have them check for compartment syndrome which is a tad differenct from carpal tunnel... Have they ruled out arthritis yet? Sometimes it shows up when you are mid 20s and can worsen with rainy weather. It's a long shot but who knows?? Sorry I am not a doc and can't help you out more. Hope it gets resolved soon. Try icing it in the mean time- it will help with the swelling/pain.
