In brief: EMG

No history of blood clot associated with EMG testing.
If you are on a blood thinner you may get a hematoma which is bleeding within the muscle. Very small needles are used for the test and the test should be almost painless if done correctly.

In brief: I do not beleive so

Emg testing use very small needles which does not cause any bleeding (significant), unless you are on blood thinner it may.
