2 more days.....

Postby LKP1231 on September 30th, 2014, 7:14 pm

My emg is Thursday morning. So of course I have more twitches, different twitches, along with the non stop foot twitches. I feel like it's impossible for this to turn out well. I'm beside myself. I read this forum whenever I can and I see so many people getting clean emgs. Or rather ones that don't indicate ***. But I can't believe this will happen for me. I feel like I'm going to be that 1.
I appreciate any kind words.
Thanks.

Keep your chin up. Most likely your EMG will be clean. Be strong. Be brave. Try to keep busy doing something. I have found that reading books helps me to keep my mind off the symptoms when they are bothering me.

So many people come out ok, test-wise anyway. The waiting is torture. I'm feeling worse. I'm reading too much. This needs to stop. Whatever the facts are I guess I have to know. Good odds that I'm ok. But it's hard to think that way.

I would advice a "Silence day", as on the day of elections - try to make it for yourself, well, maybe right tomorrow before the EMG day. Probably it would help a bit.

and remember that you are not alone and there were dozens of people like you who felt that EMG day may be a doomsday for them just to found that nothing special goes on (I believe many of them were quite discouraged with being claimned healthy or at least not terminally ill becasue when the mind is ready to that, it is hard then to accept that things are better then it was expected).

Trust me, I have no problems with being told I'm healthy altho I feel I'm not! I've never wanted to be so wrong.

Then I think it would be easy to you to accept good outcome. And saying "silence" I did not mind not to speak about fears - but rather not to read new scary stories :)

Yes I agree. It's hard for me. Fortunately my appt is 1st thing in the morning. The test will be completed and then all results will be discussed. I'll know before long. My fingers are crossed.

This time tomorrow you'll have a clean EMG and feel very relieved. Hang in there!

Good news. Now it is up to you to believe what he is telling you and work on your anxiety (easier said than done - I understand - been there doing that! :D ) Relax and enjoy your day!

Thanks. Gonna try. Wished no fascics had shown but they were explained and I was told no *** so I have to believe it. Clean would have been easier but I'll push through

you should be glad fascics shown, becuase they were able to explain how it wasn't ALS.

Be relieved
