We often come in contact with individuals who have questions regarding whether their nerve damage is the result of medical malpractice in Maryland. One of the first questions we ask is whether they have had been seen by a neurologist?
The reason this is a very important question is because a neurologist can help determine whether the individual has nerve damage, and the extent of that damage. This is the case because a neurologist can perform certain tests, namely an EMG, to determine the damage, or nerve injury.
If you are reading this article right now, and think that you may have nerve damage after a recent surgery because of a “tingling” feeling in a limb, be sure to follow up with your doctor and see if you can get a referral to a neurologist. This referral may help you get the help that you need.
