When I'm trying to do an EMG on a patient, often I have to ask them to remove their watch and jewelry. The watch is usually not a big deal, but it seems like every other female patient has on a piece of jewelry that literally cannot be removed.
Personally, all my jewelry comes off. Of course, the only jewelry I ever wear is my wedding band, which I take off every day in the shower. I could almost see having one ring that doesn't come off. But there are a lot of people who have like six or seven rings that don't come off. Or large bracelets that don't come off. No wonder your nerves are compressed if you're wearing this tight bracelet all the time.
One of my patients last week had this incredibly ugly blue bracelet that she was unable to remove. I realized this means that she wears this awful bracelet every single day, all the time, even when she sleeps.
