This week: Neuromuscular diseases, drugs of abuse, and more

A variety of specialized neuromuscular tests are available in central New York with the addition of an autonomic neuropathy clinic and lab.

On this week’s “HealthLink on Air,” neurologist Ahmed Eldokla tells about the nerve conduction studies, muscle biopsies and electromyography, which allows him to listen to the sound waves of muscles, that he now offers to patients with a variety of disorders.

Also on the show: new drugs of abuse, plus efforts to reduce suicide.
