Brief Answer:
Detailed examination and investigation required for neuropathy

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
The nerve conduction study is showing abnormal findings (motor).
You need to get NCV of upper limbs too.
Detailed examination by a neurologist is required to go for further testing.
Blood examination like blood sugar, thyroid, renal and liver profile needs to be done.
Is there any family history?
Any exposure to toxins, lead, alcohol, drugs?
Any symptoms in upper limbs?
You need to provide more details.

doctor
Answered by Dr. Neeraj Kumar 10 hours later
Brief Answer:
Complete nerve conduction studies are required

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
The clinical examination is different from nerve conduction studies.
The normal cut off values are different for different labs.
The sensory recording is showing decreased amplitude and lower velocity but needs to be checked against lab values.
Upper limb studies will pick any additional sensory or motor abnormalities.
In some cases, sensory abnormalities may be dorsal root ganglion or spinal cord related and so nerve conduction studies may be normal.
Get complete nerve conduction studies.
You can upload previous prescription for providing clinical details of examination.
