Hi doctor,

I have a doubt. Three days before nerve conduction test has been done. During that time I was wearing metals, steel belt and silver ring on my body. So, I am afraid that if any side effects may occur from those things. Please explain.



Welcome to

I read your query and understand your concerns.

  • Wearing metals like silver rings, gold rings, steel belts are a normal part of our life and do not affect in any way when nerve conduction studies completed.
  • In fact, the nerve conduction is for nerve only and the ornaments that you are wearing have nothing to do with the test and its results.
  • In my view, you can set down your worries as it is not going to affect you negatively in any sense.
