I’ve only had one EMG, about 1 1/2 years after getting GBS. They inserted thin needles into my most damaged areas. Wasn’t too awful until they got to my face. That was the most uncomfortable. I can’t think of any way to improve the experience other than the ones you mentioned but it would be great if someone has found some other little ‘trick’ to make it easier.

On the bright side, you have a starting point, something I didn’t have. They wouldn’t give me an ENG in the hospital because they thought it would be too painful, so the doctor who finally did it had nothing to compare the results to in order to judge my progress. Maybe a silver lining for you?
