Dude that sounds awful. The zap part of the EMG is the worst - can only imagine how much the cramp zaps must've sucked. That right there is enough for me to never get another EMG again. I'll take a clean clinical diagnosis any day.

Thanks for the info Matt. I am planning to see neurologist in new year so will mention this to them. Now you run far from here and get back some of the good times you have lost. This *beep* has taken enough from you.

Matt, were they able to induce a cramp after all of that?

Leaflea,

I didn't feel any cramps so I figured the test was negative. But I did test positive so maybe the machine was registering a lot more than I was feeling.

I'll elaborate more later but just wanted to update.

Hello Matt,
Glad to hearing that there are no big news - I mean unexpected news...- and always very thankful for the valuable information you bring to this site. So, alike me I suspect, we are just big twitchers...Today my pec (left) is twitching very strongly, perhaps happy for you ;-) I say happy, because it seems to me that you are followed by a very caring Neuro team. Yours, Ed
