How bad does an EMG on hands test hurt?

Will have one in mid May and already quiet anxious about it, especially the part where a needle is inserted into the muscles. Must have it done on my hands because of numbness in my fingers.

Does it hurt worse than a blood test, much worse, a bit worse? How much does it hurt on a scale of 0 to 10, and how long does the test take? I have to have both parts of the EMG, both the nerves conducting and needles in the muscles.
