I know the title is non-descriptive but I couldn't think of anything better. This past Wednesday I had a medical test done that has really left me disturbed. I don't know if what I experienced was normal or off the charts not normal. The test was a needle EMG/NCS. A Neurologist did the test and while I was able to complete the test and left the office on my own power I was shaken. Everything I have read suggest this test is well tolerated but I was near screaming at times. The test went on for over an hour between the nerve shocking and needle insertions from my lower back down to my feet. Even when I was dressed and about to leave the doctor came back in and had another go on my right foot shocking me another 30 or so times. The next day my legs felt as if I had been beaten by a baseball bat. I think I'm pretty tough mentally and can handle pain pretty well but I now question that concept. So I have to wonder was this experience typical? I've tried to read up on this but really haven't found any trusted source to refer to. I intend to ask the doctor who ordered the test if he has ever had the pleasure and suggest he take advantage of all that fun before sending anyone else to that torture chamber. Thanks for listening.
