My follow up is Nov 20 but that is routine because of the physical therapy. He did not say any further testing was necessary.

I had mine thie morning as well, EMG and Nerve Conductivity test, both had good/clean results. Wants to see me back in January but thinks my issues are stress/anxiety related.

I do have to credit Mario here. Altho I needed for myself to have the emg, the fact that facics showed altho explained, leaves me slightly questioning. So I wonder if it were totally clean would I have found another question? I refuse to run back for another or see another dr. But it's a fight with myself.

Don't beat yourself up over it, you won't be the first person to get an EMG then come home and immediately doubt it. It happens so much around here that is practically one of the stages of having BFS.

The trick, of course, is to realize how silly this is and to stop yourself from going back and turning this into an endless quest. If you start doing that, that is when BFS stops being your problem and you start becoming your problem. You just have to learn to stop being so OCD and stop "I have to know what this is!!!!!" over everything, and just start accepting the sensations and learn to deal with symptom management. That is when things will start to get better. But the #1 step is you have to get past the running back to the doctors every couple of months cycle.

You are so right. I think my husband will freak if I tell him I'm going back or to another doctor! He sat in the room with me for the whole appt (my request) so he would have the same info I do. My energy now is going to be used to find every way to get past this and regain the life I so desperately wanted to continue!

Very happy for you LKP1231! I don't say I am relieved because I had no doubts that the results would come back clean :-) But I am aware how stressful these last days must have been for you!

Reading this annoys me. Wish I'd been strong enough not to have the test and wish that first neuro hadn't explained things wrong in the beginning prompting too many questions and too much info. What neuro says fascics but means something else. Ugh
