Just wondered if it hurts a lot.
My neuro said the shots would hurt as much as the emg.... Which was confusing since emg is electrical shocks (which I did not tolerate). So he's full of **** (what ekse is new w msm)
I have a lot of nerve symptoms, including stabs, but he said my description did not sound like neuropathy.

I guess she means it's as painful as the EMG. If so, I would not be on board with that.

UGH.

I found that when I stepped up my B12 shot schedule, I had less stabbing pain. I also upped my B1.

Neuropathy is part of my picture.

its a 2mm punch normally - so a v v small wound - may give you an idea of what to expect

i am pretty sure they give local anaesthetic also - so more likely to be a case of it just being a bit sore afterward while healing

Thanks. I am on several b vits. Dunno if doing much. And yah I meant the shot from the anesthetic. He said that hurts. So it hurts more than a normal shot does? Say from getting a blood test? I assume the 3 mm punch does not hurt.

sounds strange to me

every time i have had a local anaesthetic the needle is extremely fine and you hardly feel it....

i really would not worry about it
