CLEAN EMG!!!!! Okay, now I am an official BFS Twitcher

Postby mina on August 26th, 2004, 6:23 pm

I just got back from my EMG -- my neuro said I have one of the most cleanest EMG she has seen. WOW!!

I was actually shocked to hear that since I had been thinking I must have some other neuron disease if not ALS -- but no, she said I have NOTHING. The EMG didn't show any fasciculations or fibrillations. Very surprising, given that I have buzzing, tremors, twitches (big and small) all day long.

So....I am an official BFS twitcher now. :).

Anyway, thought I'd let everyone know. Now I even wonder if I wasted my money getting this EMG since I did have a clean neuro exam (which my doc told me tells alot in the first place). But what the heck -- I did it and it has made me feel so much better.

Thanks for listening!

Congrats! No fibs, no fascics and a totally clean emg. What great news. Now get on with your life, and don't give the twitches another thought.

Take care,
