EMG results

Details: have mod amt of edema in lower shins, ankles, feet. Painful if compressed hard. Had sciatica 25 yrs ago, know symptoms. Have multi level facet arthtropathy @ L1,L2, L3. Shooting pain in left front shin when pushing off left leg, severe left lumbar area pain, left big toe & surrounding tissue totally numb most of time. EMG result = NO left radiculopathy. Symptoms blamed on peripheral neuropathy. Intern learning resulted in many repeated steps, only 2 areas of left glute tested by head of dept. Question: 1) could edema/intern errors skew results? 2) bilateral quad muscles develop ache after lying on either side. Slept on side all of adult life, post 1998 L4-5, L5-S1 disectomy fusion with BAK cages, must sleep on back. Wouldn't quad EMG results show abnormalities? All help appreciated.   JM
