    I am seeing my neurologist tomorrow for a few tests- I was just wondering if any of you have had these tests done before? What can I expect on the day of testing and what if anything do the results prove in relation to FM/CFS or otherwise?
    1. An EEG- I have had seizure activity in the past and am on Dilantin
    2.An EMG-electromyography?
    3.An NCV-nerve conduction velocity test?
    Thanks

    I have had the emg thingy. I had the ones where they tests the nerves and the muscles in my low back and the legs. It is where they send little impulses to test your reflexes. As to how fast they are. It isn't terrible but somewhat uncomfy is all. Some may have found that it is terrible but I just found it to be somewhat uncomfy is all.
    I hope this helps to ease your mind a bit. I know they gave me a relaxant before so it wasn't so uncomfortable. Maybe you could ask for the same.
    Good luck,
