EMG and nerve blocks?????

Moderators please move to Neuropathy section. Thank you in advance.

First time post.

I have been diagnosed with Ulnar nerve neuropathy from a car accident 2 years ago. Ulnar nerve transposition occurred a year ago. Still have chronic pain in elbow, and hand; numbness in 4th and 5th digits; and recently swelling of hand and forearm to twice normal size.

Doctor recently mentioned another EMG (3rd one- one before surgery and another 6 months after) as well as pain management clinic and possible RSD.

My question- will a nerve block affect the results of the EMG?
