Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I was just curious about Lumbar stenosis and EMG tests. I have severe stenosis at L4-L5 with near complete occlusion of the spinal canal. However, I did have an EMG in March and neuro said I had somewhat slow responses, but within range. Is this normal? I have low back pain, pain in groin, buttocks, back of legs, and thighs. Or will it not show up on EMG until there is permanent damage? I have read somewhere that Stenosis is hard to detect on EMG unless they have you exercise until you have pain, and then do the test? Thanks for your responses!
