emg test for tarsal tunnel??

Wondering about the emg for tarsal tunnel, my husband is set up for Wednesday morning. I heard they put needles all the way up your leg , is that true??? I also heard just from the knee down we just weren't sure what to expect. I asked the nurse and she said the only other treatment besides the inserts in his shoes which he already tried is surgery. anyone else try something different that helped???? Also I hear that if the emg hurts it means you really have tarsal tunnel , but when my husband had an emg for carpal tunnel he said it did not hurt at all and he had severe carpal tunnel in both hands.

Re: emg test for tarsal tunnel??

Hi I had an emg test for tarsel tunnel. I had broken my tallus bone and had spontaneous necrosis After it healed, I was still having alot of pain for months. I was sent to a neurologist for an emg test. It didn't hurt. It is annoying because being poked is, but it was over quickly. I had another one 6 months later and it didn't hurt either. THeir opinion was I had rsd so they wouldn't do a nerve release surgery. Good luck Wednesday
