I had an emg one year ago that showed chronic denervation and chronic radiculopathy at C6. It was done by a neurologist. I just had another one a few days ago. It was an upper limb and I have no idea who the person was who did it. Just a local radiology center. My first one took almost an hour. This one took 20 minutes. I was never asked to tense any muscle. I don't have the results yet, but my question is...are emg results very dependent on the skill of person doing them? I just did not feel very confident in this person. How subjective are the test results? It frustrates me because the test are expensive and painful, and I am not sure I would trust the results. If it shows resolution of radiculopathy or worsening,
I am not sure I would feel confident.
