i wish the emg/ncv was less torturous for me. When they have me flex my feet or do anything to engage the thigh muscles while the needle is in that muscle, it literally cramps my entire thigh muscle into the worst charlie horse cramp, which pulses, tightens on it’s own, the muscle stays hard and shakes for up to a week after the test.  Im already dreading  having the test in chicago next month—i can’t even describe the pain, its not nerve pain, but more in the muscle, i guess??

Sounds like you have a pretty good exercise/pt regiman—hopefully it will bring some more nerve healing for you.
