EMG on Tuesday - still have pain and spasms
I had my first EMG Tueday afternoon. Both legs - found it to be very painful, especially the needle in each foot. The shock part just felt like being snapped with a rubber band.
I had lumbar facet injections the week before and amazingly, back pain is better but so was my leg pain. Legs weren't really hurting much. I didn't think they were connected, but must be since pain was relieved with facet injections.
My question is that the doctor told me other than a few bruises, I should have no residual effects from the EMG. Two days later I'm still having pain and painful muscle spasms where the needles were placed. Is this normal or should I mention it to the doctor?
