    Lyrica and EMG test

    Hello Everyone.

    I got the results of my mri......all of my lumbar discs are bulging.

    I am on vicodin, lyrica, soma.

    My dr wants me get an EMG done. Does anyone know if I should be off the lyrica before getting this done? (or am i just getting confused about the meds?)

    I have pain in my hips, rt leg/hip/toes and sciatic.

    I had EMG test done twice by 2 different neurologists and not one told me to stop any meds include blood thinner. Never heard of this. Sorry i can't be more helpful to you... :-)

    I was also told I did not have to stop taking my meds, I even asked if I could take a Valium before hand and the doctor who was doing the EMG said that was fine. But if you are concerned about your meds and the EMG, ask the doctor who is doing it if you should stop any of your meds.
