Hello,

I just left my neurologist appointment and he ordered an EMG and blood work. The reason I was seeing a neurologist is that I have been experiencing extreme fatigue in my whole body, muscle spasms and tingling in legs and arms and I have been choking on my spit while sleeping. He did a physical test of my strength and reflexes and they were normal. After reading the "Read before post" I was reassured. Guess the only thing freaking me out is why he is ordering the EMG and the choking while sleeping.

Thanks

Did the neurologist indicate what they are looking for?
The EMG is a test used to check for hundreds of diseases and injuries, it does not man you might have ALS.
I've not heard of PALS choking while sleeping either.
