Ok - so this is something I can't explain, but it's extremely disturbing.  I woke up this am feeling painful all over my body, and as I was laying in bed waking up, I realized that certain areas on both sides (where the needle sticks were) hurt worse.  I actually had to think for a minute to remember which side had been done - it was my right.  But, my left foot has a similar area where I was stuck just as sore as the right.  My left calf has a similar area, my left thigh, my left hand, and my left upper arm.  What in the heck is this?  Could this be from having the ncv study done too? Maybe some type of nerve damage from being "electrocuted?"
Anyone else ever experience this?  I'm thinking I might call the Neuro, but I'm certain she'd think I was crazy. 
I have to work tonight, I hope it lets up soon - never be able to get anything done tonight.

Hi when i had my nerve conduction test I had a terrible time for 2 days. Everything kicked off it was weird, as though my muscles were forced to wake up or something. I mentioned it to my hubby and he wondered if it was the electricity stimuli that had woken up dead and sleeping nerves. It did go after about 2 days, but I can relate to you.

Didnt enjoy the experience much either.
