Abstract

A patient with muscle cramps was referred for nerve conduction studies and electromyography. Her study demonstrated bursts of spontaneous electromyography activity, which waxed and waned in amplitude with a "dive bomber"-like sound. The abnormal finding was found to be an artifact from an implanted sacral nerve stimulator for bladder incontinence.
