What to expect with an EMG?

Hello.Just wondering what to expect from anyone who's been through it.
Is the needle painful?
Does it remain in the entire time?
Do they give results on the spot?

This test is to prove that the nerves are or aren't functioning properly?
What if you have no symptoms at then time of the test?Will it still show something abnornal?

Thank you.

Re: What to expect with an EMG?

Hi,

I had a Emg done of both my hands and my legs. The Emg does not hurt, just wierd. I give my self a shot everynight so I am not scared of needles anymore lol, IVSM solved that. I did get my results immediately, my nuero did the tests. Don't worry.

Let us know your thoughts after the test.

Re: What to expect with an EMG?

Ive had several EMGs done as well....some people say it hurts briefly, like a bee sting- no one I know has said it was too terrible. For me, it didnt hurt at all either.
Yes, you get the results right away and yes, it will say if the nerves are functioning properly....and no, if you arent having symtoms at the time of the test, it wont affect the test results. Youll still have your answers. So, good luck!!
