Nerve Specialist Update

Bright and early this morning I flew out of bed super excited to get this nerve testing done so that I am one step closer to being done with this mess.

My appointment was at 8:30 and I was getting an EMG test...I had no idea what it was and I still don't really know what they did to me.  But let me tell you...I would be happy if I never have to do that again!  They basically stick these little pads all of your legs and send shocks through your nerves. Um...it wasn't the best feeling ever.  THEN they stick needles into your muscles and make you flex.  Um hello...I am there because my leg is in extreme pain and you make me flex? With a needle in me? After you just shocked my nerves? Doctor almost got smacked a few times. But you gotta do what you gotta do I guess.

Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my orthopedic specialist to get the EMG results.  I am hoping they figured out what is wrong and put me on a plan to fix it.  I really want this to just go away...

...fingers crossed...
