neuromuscular testing, could it be helpful?

    Has anyone had neuromuscular testing and did it show anything?

    Yves Jammes is doing evoked potential testing of muscles in ME/CFS patients and finding interesting things, e.g.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19457057

    and I'm pretty sure I'd found another group finding same thing. All small studies, though.

    I have a chance to go to a neuromuscular specialist and I don't know whether it would be worth it.

    Super tired of having a disease that is "well, not any disease we know about"... despite noteable pathology which the doctor commented on, "probably that particular problem is caused by deconditioning, or stress"

    I didn't have anything that sophisticated done, but I did have electrodes strapped to my legs and electrical pulses sent through my nerves and muscles, and the effect tracked. They did find a small but significant leakage of the signal. But there was no suggested treatment: that's when the neurologist referred me to an ME specialist.

    no suggested treatment doesn't sound worth it.

    thanks @Graham
