I had an ACDF where they basically fused C3 all the way to C7. Never been in this much pain in my life. I'm seeing multiple doctors because my Neurosurgeon keeps telling me I'm getting better and that's not the case at all.
My question is about an EMG I have coming up on the 2nd of September. Are those painful? I read one lady said something about a snapping/cracking noise. That would absolutely terrify me. My test is scheduled to be 3 hours long since they are testing my entire body to see which nerve roots are damaged and which peripheral nerves are dead/dying. I'm very anxious about this and I don't know what to expect.
Anyone have any advice/pointers/experience with this? I'd appreciate anyone's information, stories!
Thanks in advance!
