I had an EMG done on both legs last week (OUCH it wasnt fun). Anyway, I got my results and it was normal. I do have hernated disc which affects the right leg per spine othropedist but I also have a bigger problem in left leg which they think is Periformis Syndrome. I get weakness, the sensation that hot water is pouring down the front of my shin sometimes the back of my thigh, severe burning (like I have a severe burn on the inside of my leg)my left foot is almost always knumb and tingly and horrible horrible pain that goes down the leg into my foot and also in lower back which I thought was also from the herniated Disc but according to the Doc the herniation is putting pressure on the S-1 Root nerve going down the right leg so it shouldnt be affecting the left leg. Anyay, i went thru this horrible EMG only to find that everything is ok per that test. BUT WHY THE HECK ALL THESE SYMPTOMS? Its so frustrating not having an answer and dealing with all this pain. The Neuro said even though at the time of the test my sciatic nerve was ok it doesnt mean that its not getting inflammed and causing these symptoms. At the time of the test I wasnt in pain (thank God because the test caused enough of that thats for sure). Anyone out there experiencing this? or have ANY idea what is going on per experience? Thanks! Much appreciated!
