EMG test coming up!

Anyone who has had this test, please tell me what it feels like. Is it actually painful, or just uncomfortable?

Thanks in advance.

Not something you want to do every day but certainly tolerable..

Re: EMG test coming up!

from my experience in having this done three seperate times on pretty much the same areas over a period of years,the most painful one was the last one done about a month ago. i found out that the areas where you have atrophy really are the most painful.this last test was far more painful than the first two,but this one i have ALOT of muscle atrpohy from spinal cord damage that was not as apparent before with the others.but overall,the first two had some painful moments but were not at all really intolerable.i am sure you will do fine.let us know how things go,K? good luck,Marcia
