Anyone have . . . After EMG?

Recenty and finally had EMG. Has anyone had their burning turn to numbness after an EMG test?
Slow process but getting help in Boston. Did not expect much from EMG but told most likely SFN.
I think numb is not so good!
Doing Meth B12 5mg day.
Balance starting to go. : /

Hope others here are ok. I will catch up to posts.

Re: Anyone have . . . After EMG?

I had no issues with the EMG or the nerve conduction test except I hated the needles part. I tried to get seen in Boston but the referral I had was for a Dr. Anne Oaklander in Mass General - that was not excepting any new patients, not even a really long waiting list. A doc in her office - 8 month waiting list and his "references" didn't impress me. I wound up going to Lahey 5 month wait, and that doc (Thomas I think) totally dropped the ball.

I hope you get things straightened out and get the feeling and balance back.
Good luck

Re: Anyone have . . . After EMG?

not after a test....first my feet hurt a little...saw pcp then foot doc then Neurologist...but then they hurt a LOT....had the zap test(ended up being one of 4 and ended up seeing 4 Neurologists)....then it went to my hands and like balance went to crap!!! Fell a few times and now use a shower chair and keep a walking stick in my Jeep so I have it if K and I got out/to mall ect.

I have PN and I Just take it one day at a time...slow and steady.

I take 3600mg of Neurontin...I tried Lyrica w/o luck so went back to doesn't get rid of the pain that I have from the time I wake up till I go to bed BUT it makes it so I can work which is work knows about my condition(I work in an office) and doesn't ask me to do things which would be something i could hurt my self doing.

I hope you have a great less pain day.
