Officially in the BFS Club

Postby Steph on October 11th, 2013, 10:57 am

I just finished up at the Neuro and all of my results came back norma (Alleluia!)l. My CK was 53 and my EMG was completely clean. The nerve conduction portion of the test was much more painful for me than the needle EMG portion. It is a huge relief to know that there is absolutely nothing to indicate anything sinister is causing my symptoms. Now it is time for me to move on and address some of the underlying anxiet; come to terms with the benign nature of my twitches; and enjoy life again!

Thank you to all of the members of this board for their posts and insight. Reading about your experiences and similiar symptoms was reassuring and gave me the hope I needed during a very dark time.

Just as a reminder, make sure you bookmark this post and go back and reread your own words in 6 months when you come to the inevitable stage of "OMG I got my EMG too soon! Now I am doubting the EMG!" Everyone goes through that phase and of course everyone thinks their EMG was the one that was wrong. It wasn't. Just remember how happy you are now and never forget that. :D
