Between this and your other post, if it were me, I think I would consult another neurologist for a second opinion...if it were me. I have somebody very close to me with MS....yes, if it were me I wouldn't take that as a final answer.

If the nerve damage was located in the hand, the neurologist probably forgot to warm the hand. POTS patients often have cold hands which can slow the conduction velocity on the oscilloscope, this can obscure the test. Also carpal tunnel syndrome could affect nerve conduction velocities in the hand.

Otherwise it's always a good idea to get a second opinion. Things like diabetes could cause some peripheral neuropathy that would show up on an EMG/NCS. Also things like Guillen-Barre Syndrome or AAG could potentially cause abnormal EEG findings. Low vitamin B-12 is a possibility, but one should probably get their B-12 levels measured before commencing a treatment and settling on that diagnosis. Ask your doctor about how to proceed.
