Neurophysiology tests. Eeek.

Postby KellyBelly » Wed Feb 16, 2011 7:26 pm

Hi :wave:

My parathesis has been getting a lot worse recently, so my (rather fabulous) GP (I know, I'm lucky - I got a good one!) has referred me back to a neurologist. So I had my appointment letter through today, and I am to have Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Investigations......I have stupidly googled this and have now got myself a tad nervous! I realise that pain is relative and that we all respond to things differently.....but I was wondering if any of you guys have had these tests before and if you could (honestly) tell me how you were with them. The information the hospital have sent me states that the muscles that are tested could be sore afterwards - which makes me think it'll probably be twice as bad for a fibro sufferer!

Any honest opinions will be really appreciated!!

Thank you :blowkiss:

hi kelly,

i found the test hurt moderately. it doesn't last long though and there were no after effects.

imagine a bikini wax - it's like that. short and sharp. waxes and emg tests make me laugh rather than cry.

i had it done in my leg, wrist and along my spine. the results were normal.

the experience was ok and if i need another one i will have it. it is a quick and simple test.

I had them and didnt feel anything, only thing that was a little strange was seeing my muscles jump about, my husband practically wet himself as my leg sort of jerked and very nearly connected with the consultant carrying out the tests :yikes: :yikes: :oops: :oops: Dont get worried about them as then you are going to be stressed and tense and we all know what that can do :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :flowers:
