I'm going for an EMG/nerve test for my leg tomorrow and a little nervous. I was supposed to have one in January but the Neurologist just asked questions.
My Family Dr. was upset I haven't had the EMG test yet to see if my condition is getting worse and wants to order an MRI of my lumbar again if the results are abnormal again.
The first EMG I had 3 years ago showed I have peroneal nerve issues or radiculopathy from L4-L5 disc and need to see if I have compression of the nerve or neuropathy only.
I wasn't able to complete the first EMG due to pain but hope this Neurologist is doing it herself instead of a Tech I'm hoping she will be gentle, if it's possible to be gentle with needles going in the leg!
Please say a little prayer for me or best wishes. I'm usually strong but feel very vulnerable right now. Thanks you. Charry
