Questions about my EMG

Postby taytantuc on November 29th, 2012, 10:03 pm

I just had an EMG today. The neuro put the needle in five places in my right arm and 5 places on my left leg. He said everything was completely normal. Yaaa! My question is would the neuro be able to detect problem if they were in another part of my body, like my back muscles, if he just did my arm and leg? Since I have twitching all over.

yes, if you have twitching in the muscles he checked, the emg would pick up abnormalities if they were caused by something sinister. Believe your neuro, he knows what he is doing. Think about it, if he felt it necessary to check other places he would have, and he knows way more about what he is doing than most of the members here....take comfort in his findings, and BELIEVE him.

Take care,
Gary
