Electromyogram Test

I was diagnosed with a B12 deficiency approx. 18 months ago, at that time I also developed neuro symptoms in my feet, A simple test with an instrument similar to a tuning fork showed a degree of loss of nerve function in my lower leg. After some argument I got GP to agree to do a referral for Nerve Conduction Tests, and I received a letter from local hospital to say I was on their waiting list. 2 days ago I received an appointment from a different hospital in a different health Board area with an appointment for a ELECTROMYOGRAM, I have Googled this there is a lot of information about, but nothing to suggest this is usual procedure for B12 deficiency. Anyone else had this or know if it is usual practice.
