Disc problems (short of a disc herniation that compresses nerve roots) will not cause nerve pain. With a normal EMG and normal biopsy, this leads to a diagnosis of idiopathic neuropathy. This simply means that we have not discovered the cause as our testing is not precise enough. Discograms will only diagnose disc pain generators and will not be helpful in your case.
