Can someone list the disorders that might be possible with abnormal electromyography results?

Too many to list.: Electromyography is performed for abnormal symptoms such as weakness due to conditions in either muscles or peripheral nerves. There are many such conditions. This web page (http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003929.Htm) has a list of many of these conditions, but you should always speak with your doctor about your specific results.
