Hi, @dablues, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Since you are having these issues with your spinal stenosis, specifically in your neck, as well as the double vision, I can see that waiting till the end of January to see the doctor following your EMG would be hard.
I'd also like to introduce you to some other Connect members who have talked about spinal stenosis or double vision to see if they may have some thoughts for you on managing your symptoms while you wait for your EMG and doctor visit. Please meet @suerc@wilcy@3les54@joanneo@zorone@anon79059957.
Sounds as though you did not consider going to the ER as a valid choice for you. Why did you not feel that option was any help? Can you follow up with the nurse tomorrow, Monday, on the neck therapy?
