If you want ask the neurologist to give you a sedative before the EMG. It helped me some with my second round of them.

I'm exited for the possibility of electronic stimulation helping you Peggy. I have CMT with PN as a by-product and tried acupuncture for 3 years without much relief in my leg numbness and tingling but do not have leg pain like you so I hope that the electronic stimulation provides you some relief. I also take Gabapentin, 100mg 3X/day and find it helpful for pain and sleep.
I’ve been doing yoga for about 25 years and had to stop Vinyasa (flow) because of of worsening balance. Now I do Yin and Restorative types, which use props like bolsters and blocks. It requires very little standing but has lots of static stretching and meditative breathing. It’s fantastic. I am also trying to do more recumbent biking at The Y because it’s hard to get good cardio exercise with limited mobility.
BTW.. has anyone been diagnosed with CMT, Charcoal, Marie Tooth disease?
