All I can say is, if you have never had EMG or NCV tests done. Hope you dont!!
I hated it, I asked the tech if it was going to hurt and that b10tch lied!!!
It hurt like a cowbite, no, make that 16 cows biting your in unison for like 30 minutes!!!
If you have ever used a tens unit for pain, imagine turning it up on high and times that by at least 4.
Some parts of it wasnt so bad, they did the muscle tests which I had imagined would be the worst but no the nerve conduction was much more painful.
I know how Ol Frankenstein must have felt.
But I dont want to discourage anyone, if you are having muscle or nerve issues and the doctor wants you to have these tests, by all means do it, I waited 6 weeks and I regret not going sooner. I might have found out the problem and gotten started with treatment by now.
But anyway its over and done with now. Now just to wait for the results to come back and find out what is going on and what my next step is.
I still go back to the ortho in Sept to find out what he thinks.
Then I went to Walmart. Wow, huge misjudgement on my part. Monday of check day, 3 days before school goes back. Well, I had to have some calcium and some coffee, so it had to be done. Now I am home, with the ac on high and fixing me a nice little spinach salad with some grilled chicken and strawberries for supper, then going to do the elliptical and weights.
I got to the post office too late to pick up my new shoes, so tomorrow I am going to get them and wear them inside the house to break them in before I head back to the walking track this week.
It is time. My foot is still numb and that means I have to be more careful and cautious of my steps and not overdo it. But I have to get back to walking.
