    Question about EMG please

    Hi all Recently had an EMG but was unconvinced about how it was done. Showed no evidence of fasiculation in calves even though they're twitching like crazy.

    Had violent fasiculation in left calf

    This occurred while sitting. Could even see my pant leg moving. Now it feels less responsive and a bit more flabby when walking....is it weakened? Had fasiculations in right leg overnight while on Lyrica. My left leg is usually the problem child.

    Does anyone know?

    Hi, I had an EMG done last week and I got the results back but I do not know what they actually mean. There was evidence of fasiculation in opponens pollicis, something about large complex units in the tricpes. Small units in cervical paraspinals. The nerve conduction was fine.
