I am scheduled for a whole body EMG in a couple of weeks and I have heard horror stories as to how bad this hurts. Are you allowed to take any pain medication or anything prior to the test? I have already had a CAT scan, MRI, Lumbar Puncture and numerous blood tests. I have also been diagnosed with Occipital Neualgia, which I have been told is one of the first symptoms of MS. The doctor wanted to give me a nerve block, but I am terrified of needles as it is, and to have needles stuck into the base of my neck into my nerves makes me sick. HELP. This is all new to me, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance. Debbie
