The EMG test still came out negative but this doctor wrote me a report confirmed that I has Carpal Tunnel syndrome, it is worked- related.

Do you think the w/c will accept my case without any possitive test beside just my doctor report.

It has been documented that Emg s
Can have a 10-30 percent change of error. For some reason in some people a emg may be a negative result but realistically you may have nerve damage. Just do other tests , like tineal test , your neuro or ortho will know what to do. Your symptoms are real and your emg is giving a false negative. Dont give up find a md that is on your side because if wc sends you to a ime they will say nothing is wrong with you.
