Hi, I just had a lumbar EMG about 2 hours ago. They found a pinched nerve at l4. Hurt like hell when they stuck the needle in there. I took my pain meds when I got home but now the pain is increasing all the way down to my foot from my hip and my lower back is burning. Usually I only get this kind of pain if I try to sleep on one side. I need to figure out if I should have my employee cover my pm jobs (I am a pet sitter, I need to drive around).
Does anyone know when the Post-EMG pain might start getting better? Thanks.
