calf pain after EMG

I had a nerve conduction study and wonder if anyone has experienced severe pain in the calf after it? It's been 2 weeks and the pain comes and goes, but is so severe at times it wakes me from a deep sleep. If so, what makes it go away?
Thanks for any insight!

    I've had increased pain after my EMG's. I've had two of them. The first one the pain only lasted a few days and it was down my entire leg where I have nerve damage. The second time it was in the same area and it lasted a couple of weeks and then started to improve on its own. Does it feel like muscle pain? Did you ice the areas after the test? If it continues I would call your Dr.
