    Congrats on the Clean EMG! I had the MRI today but they said that I have to wait to review with my Neurologist for results. Not until the 26th :( I felt good for a day or so after my Clean EMG but now find myself second guessing it - could they have missed it, test is not 100% accurate, etc.

    Thank you. I have a neurology appointment tomorrow and am hopeful that he will take me seriously and have some input into what is going on with me. I have not yet had an MRI or EMG so perhaps that will be the next step. I just want my life back. Sounds like you can relate.
