Good Morning All, I had posted yesterday in a reply that I was scheduled to have an emg yesterday. I was quite concerned that I would have a horrible dystonic storm as a result of the needles going into the muscle. I have to say my heart was beating so fast because I was so nervous about the whole thing. But Praise the Lord, the only thing that spasmed was my left foot, the one that they were testing. The Neuro was even shocked by the severe spasm. They discovered that my L5 nerve is pinched off. They were testing to see if the malfunction in my foot was from my brain or my back. Now we know it is my back. They have needed to do back surgery for sometime, but because of the problems I have with anesthesia we have put it off. I have terrible dystonic problems when under anesthesia and the Dr. is very worried about me losing my airway. The neuro yesterday said he can understand that after seeing what my foot did. So all in all a great praise, just to know what it is, and made it through with shining colors. God BLess you all today. Cathy
