Re: EMG Test

CatieCupCake******** i ahve had several upper and lower. first they put little sticky things on kind of like in an EKG. they give you a little jolt. most kind dr.s tell you what to expect and wehn. uncomfortable. depending on the damage it would depend on how painful it is. then they stick fine needles in strategic spots to check muscle damage. the only one i had that truly hurt was on my left bicep. have an impinged rotator cuff and lots of cervical injury. bicep was also injured so it was very tender when i had it done, just 3 weeks post-injury. have extreme weakness in my tricep so i couldn't feel anything he did back there.
