I went over one of my EMG's with my new one. It turns out that the two muscles they tested the second time were the exact same ones that showed no abnormalities on my first test. My thighs left and right (vast medialis) had 2+ psw 2- amp and 1+ recruitment pattern. R and L tib anterior had 1+ psw 1+ amp. My L and R peron longus had 1+ psw 1+ amp and 1+ recruitment pattern. My L ext hall long had 1+ psw and 2+amp. The right had 1+psw. L bic fem head had 2+ psw and 2- amp. R was normal. L deltoid had 1+ psw and 1+amp R deltoid had 1+fib and 2+ amp. L and R biceps had 2+fibs, 2+psw, 2+amp and 1+ recruitment pattern. L flex carpi uln had 1+psw, 1+amp. R gasrtocn med had 1+fib and 1+amp. That was my first EMG, the second EMG he tested my Left Gastrocn med, and my Left Tricep. They were normal even though he took three hours to test them and they sounded like a helicopter the whole time. Guess what, they were normal on my last test too. They did not test any of the other muscles to see if there was damage or improvement. Like doc said, no matter what muscle is tested if it were ALS it would be abnormal...... So what is it? Has anyone had test results like these with brisk reflexes? I am glad it is not ALS but i would like to know what it is... Thanks Sam.
