Personally,: I do not think the emg/ncv should be the primary concern. You state you have tingling toes and feet. Therefore, it is safe to assume some form of neuropathy is present. The headaches, vomitting, fatigue, nausea would concern me more. It sounds viral. What did your doctor say about your other symptoms? Some bloodwork might be in order.

Yes and no: You need some investigation but not ncv, too early in the course of presentation.
