"Electric shocks and needles"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

This afternoon I had an EMG of my legs by the doctor. The worst bit was finding the place, in a very cold wind, but then it went well. The warmth of the building was matched by the staff and the doctor was almost on time. The EMG was fascinating and the frantic graphs on the monitor quite amazing. There was no pain, even for someone who hates needles. The doctor wears their learning very lightly and the conversation throughout was highly enjoyable. It was also worth doing for the results. Surprisingly, I'm fairly normal apparently.
