Default Update to previous post - EMG outcome

Hi - I posted on here a couple of months back, but the post is now locked, otherwise I'd have added this reply.
I've finally had my EMG, but need to wait 2 weeks to discuss the outcome with the neurologist.
I have attached the EMG readings(?) which show a lot of 0's, 'N''s and 'fasc' against 3 items. I've had fasciculations for well over 2 years, so the observation of fascs is no surprise- they're constant and have spread over the 2.5 years.
So as I'm apprised before going into my neuro appointment, does this outcome count as "clean" after all this time twitching? The exam appeared quite thorough to me, though wasn't discussed afterward.
I think this looks ok.
Thanks
