    EMG Monday ... worried

    I posted a long time ago about my foot pain and chickened out of going for the EMG. After going to a orthopedic (I also have spinal stenosis), he ruled our a relationship and sent me to an orthopedic foot specialist. I got prescription orthotics, which I haveny used since it's warm weather.

    Long story short..back to EMG on Monday! I'm still scared and feel anxious, but I have to find out the cause of my foot pain! Any advice prior to the EMG, please share!

    Emg is no big deal...I've had 3 done on my arms, and my husband had one on his foot. Just don't use lotion on your legs and feet, and wear pants that can be rolled up, or bring shorts.
    It might be uncomfortable for a short time during the test, but probably no where near the pain you have continually. Pain is subjective....I found it to be an interesting test.

    Regarding orthotics....there are sandals that can accommodate orthotics.
    As well, sandals such as Mephisto and Naot are quite accommodating regarding met and arch support.

    Let us know the outcome.

    It's all a matter of perspective!
