Has anyone had a EMG done before? Tell me about it my appointment is on Feb 14th and I don’t want to be blindsided. Lol I’ve seen mixed reviews online.

      They’re uncomfortable for sure. But it’s doable, some spots hurt more than others Just remember to breathe and they do try to do it pretty quickly

      I’ve had a few. It’s not too bad. It can be uncomfortable, as they’ll put sensors into different spots and run electricity through the nerves to see how the nerves conduct signal, but it’s not super painful. Sometimes your muscles will twitch. It’s a great tool to see exactly where a “disconnect” lies.

        @BraeburnGirl okay thank you. I have frequent muscle twitching already so that shouldn’t bother me (that’s sad to say) 😩🤣 I’m just not a fan of needles and I don’t have anybody to go with me on that day.
