EMG/NCV questions

... tolerable. You probably won't feel the needle being inserted because it is very thin. I hardly felt them and I was stuck 12 times. The uncomfortable part of the EMG comes when you have to contract the muscle because the needle is still stuck in that muscle. For me, the calf was the one that ached the most. ... (10 replies)

EMG/NCV questions
Nov 24, 2004
... For an EMG, a needle electrode is inserted through the skin into the muscle. The electrical activity detected by this electrode is displayed on an oscilloscope, and may be heard through a speaker.

Pain in both legs
Oct 15, 2008
... Have they said what it is caused by? Did they run vascular tests? EMG/NCV? Are you seeing a neurologist? As with anyone else, some are better than others. I was misdiagnosed by my first one and so none of the treatments worked. He also was unwilling to try much. I called my insurance company and they agreed that a second opinion was in order. This time I did the... (2 replies)
