emg.. do they hurt???

Still awaiting mri results although they have been looked at have a emg 14th aug apparently read online they are painful, anyone had one and what are they really like what will i expect? many thanks

I’d say my EMG was uncomfortable rather than really painful. Any pain is only momentary and I had no after effects. It’ll be easier if you relax, so stop reading scare stories on the 'net!

I agree with Telstar. I can’t say it hurt, particularly. It just made me jump occasionally. It certainly wasn’t anything to worry about and I’ve had two so far.
