Side Effects
My husband had a nerve conduction test done on his back, legs and feet June 13th.  Since the test he has experienced severe back pain, chills, loss of balance and cold clammy sweats.  He also is severely tired and seems to be sleeping almost nonstop since Thursday.  Could these be side effects of the test?
He has had back surgery about 8 years ago.  Could this be symptoms of something else?

Hi,
How is your husband? Nerve conduction tests usually have no side effect. The electrical impulse applied to the skin or the amount of electricity that passes through is very small. His symptoms may be associated with the back surgery or from other condition such as infection or musculoskeletal issues that warrants further evaluation. It is best that you have him see his attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
