Here is the truth as I felt it, it is not as bad as child birth, this is true, it hurts like he.., but if it must be done, it must be done. With child birth, at least at the end you have a precious blessing. At the end of the EMG, you have the results of a test you need.
So, maybe take a anti anxiety med, like valium, or xanax and get thru it. I was lied to by my doctor (who is no longer my doctor), she told me it was nothing, and looked at me with scorn when I was cursing at the pain it caused me. Well when it was over, I suggested she have one done, while I look on. She did not find me amusing, but then I was not kidding, so there was nothing to be amused about.
We are asked to go thru the most grinding tests on there way to finding out or at least trying to find out what is wrong with us. We are made to pay for these tests to try to find out what is wrong. I know it must be done, I know that many things are asked of us, so that maybe we can finally get the help we need. I think what should be asked for is a little compassion, and alot of truth.
Take care, hope you find out what you need to know to help you have a quality of life, it can be done, even if it hurts on the way.
