Question Emg results are in and not happy

Hi everyone, I got got my results and I'm not happy how everything is being dealth with.First off I will remind everyone of my "problem areas" shall I say.I have DDD in the lumber region and have been having pain mostly when I sit and it has been actually waking me up during the night.I have numbness in my right foot on the top around the ankle and in the 3rd and 4th toes.Ever since I went in for the Emg the numbness has spread more across the foot.I did call and ask the Dr. if it was normal by advice of some of you that replied to my post but according to them they said it could happen so I brushed it off.It took them 8 days in order to get this test back and would have been more if I didn't probe them to find out what was going on.Well she finally located it and told me that it was negative.Now don't get me wrong I'm happy that it says htat but I'm puzzled to as why I have this numbness in my foot and they didn't give me any clue as to what it could be.Am I making this out to be more then what it should be or do you think I should pursue it some more???I would like to get some other's persective before I go and see someone else or if I should just drop it??? Thanks for any and all replies....Robin

Don't get discouraged.

Many times these EMG test say, "Negative or Inconclusive" -

so did mine.. and I have no feeling, twitching, spasms and intractable pain throughout my entire left side hip to toe.

Yes, see another Dr and I pray you get the answers you seek
